Reconciliation Engine configuration settings
The parameters in the Reconciliation section allow you to configure reconciliation settings in a server group environment.
If you are in a server group environment, select the required AR server from the Select Server drop-down list. If you have a stand-alone environment, the required server name is automatically displayed.
Setting in the AR Configuration file
|Definition Check Interval|
Defines an expiration period for the Reconciliation Engine's cache of job definitions.
Example: If you change job, activity, precedence, or merge definitions, and then run a job, you might not see the results after the cache expires. Setting an expiration for the cached definitions helps to improve performance and reduce log size.
Defines the polling interval in seconds. The Reconciliation Engine "sleeps" until the next job is scheduled to run or for this interval, or whichever occurs first. The Polling interval is used only when the dispatcher does not send a signal to the Reconciliation Engine.
The BMC Remedy AR System server RPC socket that the Reconciliation Engine uses for processing. You can specify only 390698 or 390699, which are the ports reserved for the Reconciliation Engine. You should use only those ports reserved for BMC Atrium CMDB and not ports that the BMC Remedy AR System can use.
If you use a port other than the reserved ports, the Reconciliation Engine displays a warning that the port in invalid. This can be used to specify a maximum number of threads.
|Execution Interval for Continuous Job||The execution interval of a continuous job. If you set this value to less than 120 seconds (2 minutes), then the Reconciliation Engine converts that value to 120 seconds (2 minutes).|
|Job Idle Time|
This is the time interval for which a job can remain idle. You can specify a value in the range of 60 to 720 minutes. When the job idle time is set to 60 minutes, the fail safe mechanism in the reconciliation engine monitors all the running jobs at an interval of 60 minutes. If the fail safe feature detects a job, which is not responding not processing a CI for more than 60 minutes, the fail safe feature restarts the non-responding job.
|Select this option if you have configured jobs that are running in parallel. When this option is selected, the jobs run the identify activity on the source and target datasets that are configured for the jobs and on all the other datasets. This ensures that the same Reconciliation ID is assigned to identical CIs in all the datasets and the data integrity is maintained.||False||RE-Parallel-Job-Run|
Besides setting the core configuration parameters for reconciliation, you can configure the server settings and threads for the Reconciliation Engine.
