Starting with BMC Atrium Core CMDB version 9.1.04, configuring the reconciliation parameters, such as RPC Socket or Polling Interval, is centralized and easy to access. The screen shows you at a glance, all the available reconciliation parameters.
From the CMDB Dashboard, go to Configurations > Core Configurations.
The left pane provides tabs for all the CMDB components, such as CMDB Engine, Normalization, and so on.
Click Reconciliation to view all the reconciliation related parameters in the right pane. An "i" iconis available next to a parameter that contains a tool-tip about the parameter usage. This helps you understand a parameter before setting its value. Parameters that already contain values are the default values. For example, the Polling Interval (seconds) parameter contains the value 18000, which is the default time provided for the polling interval. After you set values for the required parameters, click Save.
In the CMDB Services component, under Dashboard Utility, if you select the check box Enable Duplicate Processing, then the utility enables the processing of duplicate CIs. But note that when you run the utility for the first time with this selection, the execution time may be substantial, affecting database performance. BMC recommends that if you want to enable this check box, then have your first run of this utility during non-peak hours.
Besides setting the core configuration parameters for reconciliation, you can configure the server settings and threads for the Reconciliation Engine. For more information about this configuration, see Server settings and threads for the Reconciliation Engine.
