Enhanced Pattern Modules for Cluster Awareness in BMC Discovery 11.x series

BMC Discovery 11.0.x  introduces a new extended cluster discovery.

Cluster Modeling approaches and Key changes:

  1. Clustering Platform  that generate a Cluster Node. In most cases the Key doesn’t change.
  2. Clustered Software.  In previous releases, the SIs were modeled running on Host nodes.  Now, if they are running on a cluster, they are modeled running on the Cluster node .That means that instances of these products that run on clusters have changed Keys. Instances that do not run on clusters do not have changed Keys.
  3. Software Performing Clustering - products that implement their own Clustering Scheme without using a Clustering Platform. In general, the SoftwareCluster is given the same Key that was previously given to the SoftwareInstance.

 More about new clustering technologies and clustering models you may find here.
