Configuring the Normalization Engine

You can configure the  BMC CMDB Engine parameters from the CMDB User Interface (UI) or by using the Centralized Configuration System. For more details, see  Updating configuration settings by using the AR System Configuration Generic UI form .

To configure the Normalization Engine from the CMDB User Interface

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 Normalization to view all the normalization-related parameters in the right pane. An "i" icon  is 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 Maximum Threads for Continuous Jobs parameter contains the value 10, which is the default number of threads provided for continuous jobs.

The normalization parameters are divided into two tabs, Global Configurations and Plugin Server Configurations, for ease of configuration.

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.
