Input/output operations per second for a BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server and Database

The input/output operations per second (IOPS) in a BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server networks is often measured by the number of read and write bytes per second for computer storage devices, such as the hard disk.

The following table presents hardware, software, and BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server load details, and the resulting IOPS for the embedded SAP SQL Anywhere database on the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server.

Network bandwidth utilization between the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server and the BMC Atrium CMDB Server

In BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server networks, the bandwidth is often measured as the amount of data that is transferred from the Integration Service to the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server over a specified period.

The following values show the network bandwidth utilization to transfer 5,000 CIs between the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server and BMC Atrium CMDB:

  • Average: 44 KB per second
  • Minimum: 5 KB per second
  • Maximum: 177 KB per second
