Planning worksheets for Operations Management

Use the information in this topic to help make decisions about a new implementation of TrueSight Operations Management, TrueSight App Visibility Manager, or Synthetic Transaction Monitoring with Silk Performer. To plan the deployment of TrueSight Infrastructure Management, see Planning considerations and worksheets for Infrastructure Management.

To view security considerations, see Security considerations for TrueSight Operations Management

If you are upgrading from TrueSight App Visibility Manager (formerly BMC Application Diagnostics), see Upgrading. If you are upgrading from a previous version of TrueSight Infrastructure Management (formerly BMC ProactiveNet Performance Manager), see Upgrading the Infrastructure Management Server.

Deployment sizing worksheets

It is important to estimate the size of your deployment correctly because the steps to follow and the design elements vary depending on the size of the deployment. Review sizing and scalability considerations for each component to understand the capacity requirements.

Important

If you are also deploying TrueSight Infrastructure Management, read Sizing and scalability considerations for Infrastructure Management to understand the scaling and sizing requirements of the TrueSight Infrastructure Management server, Integration Service, and monitoring solutions.
