BMC offers two versions of the BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization Gateway Server: one for UNIX systems and one for Microsoft Windows systems. You can use either of these versions to manage UNIX systems, Linux systems, Windows systems, or a combination. The following table lists components and their features and functions. You can schedule and create daily automation runs and list of nodes using Gateway Manager.

Notes

Component

Managed Node running Agent

Mandatory

One per managed node

Agent is deployed on each managed node, either Windows or UNIX. For Windows managed nodes, an agentless option is also available. For some virtualization technologies, it is possible for a single agent on the hypervisor to collect sufficient data on all the guests. See Best Practices section for information on deployment for specific technologies.

Machine

Agent Proxy Server

Mandatory

One per group of managed nodes

Required for agentless Windows managed nodes. A single Agent Proxy Server can collect data from multiple managed nodes; see “Sizing” for details and constraints. An Agent Proxy Server uses WMI to collect data from the managed nodes and acts as their agent.

Machine

Analyze and Predict

Optional

≥ 0

If you are viewing per-interval reports, building workload definitions from unprocessed data on the Gateway Server, or running what-ifs or scenario planner using queuing models, you need a Windows desktop. For details see the Analyze and Predict documentation pages.

Component

Visualizer and Visualizer database

Optional

NA

If you are directly viewing historical data processed and summarized from the Gateway Server, you need a Windows desktop and a database. For details see the Visualizer documentation.

Component

Investigate

Optional

NA

If you are viewing real-time or near-real time unprocessed UDR data, you need a Windows desktop running the Investigate software. See the Investigate documentation.

For detailed information, see the guides in Restricted PDFs.
