This topic provides details on the  performance and scalability requirements testing done for supporting multiple BMC ProactiveNet Servers on a single Oracle database instance.

ComponentRecommended specifications
BMC ProactiveNet Server

Version: 9.0.22 ( 9.0 Service Pack 2)

Required number: 3 (Two BMC ProactiveNet Server loaded with around 700K attributes combined together, and the third BMC ProactiveNet Server with a load of around 100K attributes.)

Oracle Server

OS: Windows 2008 R2 running Oracle 11.2.0.3 (11g R2 Patch3).

 Processor: 8 CPU, 32 GB RAM.

There are two SIDs, the main SID with 16 GB RAM and the secondary with 3 GB RAM.

The SID with 16 GB RAM is used for holding all the three BMC ProactiveNet Servers. The SID with 3 GB RAM is used for installing a new BMC ProactiveNet Server, which will be exported later to the SID with 16 GB RAM.

The following points were observed for performance and scalability requirements testing done for supporting multiple BMC ProactiveNet Servers on a single Oracle database instance:

  •  During the test, under peak usage, the SID consumed 12.5 GB RAM out of the allocated 16 GB.
  • The open_cursor parameter needed to be increased by 1.5 times to 6000 from 4000.
  • The processes parameter was adequate with the current 1000 setting.
  • Other parameter need not be changed.
  • Change the Oracle parameters as per your performance requirement.
