Sizing a database can be one of the most arduous tasks a database administrator, analyst or developer must attend to. It is time consuming and more hours go into analyzing the database than actually sizing it. There are some tools that can efficiently size a database before deployment. For example, one can use ERwin to determine how large the database will become in N number of months. One could also a database with random data using products like Datatect. Of course one can do the math themselves which is more often the case than not.

Note

A common mistake that happens when one attempts to size a database without the aid of a 3rd party product is to miss the space used by indexes, foreign keys and constraints.

Fortunately, has relatively little to do with databases for its own purposes. The notable exception is the metrics data that it can collect. Storing the metric data in an external standalone RDBMS is considered a best practice. When sizing that database, a general rule of thumb is that approximately 700 MB of space is required to retain up to a month of metric data.

Technically, it is less resource intensive to have larger or more coarse workflows than it is to have many smaller workflows. Large numbers of small workflows have a measurable impact on the grid requiring more processing, memory, and disk space to properly utilize and maintain. However, one must consider readability and the relative simplicity of decomposing larger workflows into smaller more concise workflows. Moreover, the more succinct and focused the workflow is, the more reusable it will become in other workflows.

Yes, the product is multi-threaded. It is written in Java, which is largely OS-agnostic and highly portable. The development team uses both Windows and UNIX for its development.

Customers tend to run on virtual machines. However, using physical hardware provides best performance and stability.

If auditing is configured, then will record actions that are performed by users on the grid (e.g. configuring an adapter, activating a module, etc.).

Repository logs (named repository.log) are located in the AO_HOME/repository/logs folder.

Grid peer component logs (named grid.log and processes.log) are located in the AO_HOME/tomcat/logs folder.

Logging level is configured using the Grid Manager web UI. Navigate to Manage > Peer > edit the peer(pencil button) → Configure Logging button.

TrueSight Orchestration does not natively support the migration of peers from one server to another. However, you can manually migrate a TrueSight Orchestration peer from one server to another. For more information, see Knowledge Article No. 000203937 Open link on BMC Communities.

Top Knowledge Articles from BMC Customer Support

BMC Communities maintains a list of the top 10 Knowledge Articles (KAs) as recommended by the Customer Support team for

The KAs are selected by a combination of both the collective experience of the team and other quantitative factors, with the goal of sharing the most relevant and useful information in a easy to consume format.

See Top TrueSight Orchestration Knowledge Articles for the list. For a complete list of Knowledge Articles for , see Articles from the BMC Knowledge Base - TrueSight Orchestration.

Searching Knowledge Articles

From the Customer Support Knowledge Base page, in you can choose to search by  Platform and then enter a search string. You might want to search for one of the following:

  • A string from an error message to locate KAs related to that string
  • A task that you want to perform
  • A behavior that you see while working with the product

For example, if you see an error that includes the phrase "invalid transform" and you search for that string, the results will include a link to TrueSight Orchestration workflow throws "invalid transform" errors when input data contains quotes KA000084014.
