Simulating the impact of changes to CIs

You use the BMC Atrium Impact Simulator component of BMC Atrium Configuration Management Database (BMC Atrium CMDB) to determine how a change to the availability of a configuration item (CI) will affect other CIs.

  • You could run a simulation in BMC Atrium Impact Simulator to learn what business services would be affected if you were to take a server offline.
  • You might also use BMC Atrium Impact Simulator to plan for disaster recovery. You can run simulations to determine where the network is weakest, and then create your plans.

Before using BMC Atrium Impact Simulator, you should model the impacts among your CIs. For more information, see Administering CI impact models.
