Configuring the Application Server after installation

Following the successful installation of the Application Server components, you must complete the following tasks before you can start using the product: 

Before you begin

You must have successfully completed the following procedures:

General settings for Data Warehouse

You can configure attributes for the TrueSight Capacity Optimization Warehousing engine that launches multiple threads for warehousing activities. For details, see Data Warehouse.

Configuring the port to launch Capacity Optimization console from the TrueSight console

To ensure that the Capacity Optimization console is launched correctly from the TrueSight console, update the Capacity Optimization Console URL field in the Administration > System > Global configuration > Console after you modify the port for Apache web server configuration. 

If you do not update the port, the URL that gets embedded in the event generated from the TrueSight console points to the wrong port and causes the Capacity Optimization console launch to fail.

(Optional) Specifying custom database passwords

The default passwords for the following TrueSight Capacity Optimization database users are:

Database userDefault password





To change these passwords, you must define them in the system configuration.

  1. In TrueSight Capacity Optimization console, navigate to the General tab under Administration > System > Global configuration.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. For Database Password (Schema Owner) or Database Password for Advanced Reports, type the modified passwords.
  4. Click Save.

Using Oracle database as source for a PERL ETL

If you are using Postgres as the database for TrueSight Capacity Optimization and you want to use the Oracle database for PERL ETL, ensure that the following details are available and not commented in the file:


<ORACLE_HOME> is the full path of the directory where the Oracle database software is installed. For example, /opt/oracle/product/11.2.0/client_1.

This scenario is also valid even if you have not yet set up the Oracle database during Application Server installation.

Configuring email notifications and SNMP trap settings

BMC recommends that you configure mail notifications. For more information, see Global configuration.

Partitioning period for peak performance settings

When table partitioning is enabled, you can improve the performance of the TrueSight Capacity Optimization data warehouse by adjusting the Aging Configuration.

The partitioning period (amount of time, in days, according to which TrueSight Capacity Optimization tables are partitioned) is an important parameter that can improve data warehouse performance. Tuning partitions properly can improve SQL query execution and speed up TrueSight Capacity Optimization.

(Optional) Manual Start and Stop commands for TrueSight Capacity Optimization

After the initial installation, BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization components start automatically.


To manually start, stop, or restart TrueSight Capacity Optimization as a cpit user

  1. Go to the $CPITBASE directory.
  2. Type the following command:
    ./cpit start|stop|restart

To manually start, stop, or restart a single component

Type the following command followed by the appropriate component name:

./cpit start|stop|restart [web|scheduler|servicecontainer|datahub|dataccum|all]

OS start-up settings

To add TrueSight Capacity Optimization to your OS start-up queue:

  1. Copy $CPITBASE/caplan to /etc/init.d.
  2. Assign execution permissions to the file.
  3. Run the command that places a service in auto-startup. For example, on Red Hat Linux, type:
    chkconfig caplan on
