PSL Functions That do Not Influence Performance

Blocking PSL functions, for the PSL function that have blocking implementations (read, sleep and block) when they are blocked, does not put the PATROL Agent into a blocked state or a busy loop due to the way PATROL schedules. The following functions have no performance impact while they are waiting:

  • Menu and InfoBox commands - Menu commands and InfoBox commands are only executed when the user requests them (on the console). You can tune them however their impact will be less than those that run repeatedly.
  • Recovery Actions - Recovery Actions run only when an issue occurs and there therefore will yield less performance gain than those that run repeatedly.
  • Number of consumer parameters - Because consumer parameters have no run time presence, they cannot consume CPU time. You might see some performance impact for history storage but this is usually marginal.
