Entities in BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization come in three categories: Domains, Business Drivers, and Systems. Each of these categories has its own set of sub-types that can be assigned to the entity. For more information, see Entity types.
A domain is a set of systems and business drivers that are logically related to each other. You can use domains to group together services belonging to the same business division. To access domains, navigate to Workspace > All Domains and select the required domain.
You can create special types of domains that group together systems or business drivers by their type rather than by the service they supply. Most domain types are self-explanatory; for example, an Application Servers domain groups application servers together.
BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization also provides a special, multi-purpose domain called Generic that covers every possible grouping that you can create.
When you create a domain of a certain type, you must specify the type of systems or business drivers to aggregate in it. For example, you cannot put a database in a domain that groups application servers. The exception is the Generic domain type, which can include any type of system or business driver.
When adding a system or business driver to a domain, you can select it from a list of entities of other existing applications. The system or business driver that you want to include in your domain does not need to be shared. In this way, you can associate a system or business driver with its service context and other domains.
