Follow the performance and scalability recommendations for your type of deployment. You can deploy Infrastructure Management to collect performance data, collect external events, manage service models, or any combination of these functions.
For performance guidelines and tuning recommendations, consult the following topics:
Do not use 32-bit hardware to deploy a BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server. No performance or scalability testing is performed on 32-bit hardware. If you are using 32-bit hardware and want to upgrade to Infrastructure Management, upgrade to 64-bit hardware before upgrading the Infrastructure Management software.
The performance of a BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server depends on several variables, and the performance and scalability guidelines and recommendations address these. Substantial changes in any of the following variables can change the expected scaling and performance numbers:
An increase in the CPU and memory utilization is seen when you perform resource-intensive operations like PATROL Agent upgrade, server restart and reconciliation, and CRUD operations on groups. This is temporary and the resource utilization returns to normal.
Performance testing and sizing information is based on controlled, internal testing of Infrastructure Management to ensure optimum performance.
The platforms referenced in this section refer to platforms that BMC used in testing and do not reflect all of the supported platforms. For details about supported platforms, see System requirements and product compatibility for Infrastructure Management.
