The Update benchmark data option in the Administration > Benchmark Management > Update benchmark data enables you to perform an automatic or manual of the benchmark data, add a user benchmark data file, and validate the benchmark updates. For more information, see the following:

Performing an automatic update of the benchmark data

If your Application Server is able to access Internet, you can perform an automatic update of the benchmark data. To perform an automatic update of the benchmark data:

  1. In the console, select Administration > Benchmark Management > Update benchmark data. The Update benchmark data page appears.
  2. To download the preliminary hardware table files with the update, select the Also download preliminary hardware table files check box in the Benchmarks Update section.

  3. Click Update.

    The latest available ratings are automatically downloaded from ftp.bmc.com site and the benchmark values are updated in the hardware library.

Performing a manual update of the benchmark data

If your Application Server is not able to access Internet, you can perform a manual update of benchmark data. To perform a manual update of the benchmark data:

  1. Download the .hrw files from ftp://ftp.bmc.com/pub/perform/gfc/hardware/10.3.00.

    Note

    Download the best1default.hrw103best1default.xml103 and hrwMapDefault.xml103. Optionally you can also download, best1prelim.xml103 and hrwMapPrelim.xml103.

  2. Save the files in the /repository/hrwlib directory of the AS server.
  3. Remove the version number from the extension of the file. For instance, for the best1default.hrw103 change the extension of the file to best1default.hrw.
  4. Restart the scheduler to update the benchmark data. If you do not restart the scheduler, the benchmark data will be updated according to the update schedule set in the console.

Adding a user benchmark data file

To upload an XML file to add a custom benchmark or custom entries to an already existing one, perform the following task. The upload is processed by the Benchmark Alignment scheduler task.

  1. In the console, select Administration > Benchmark Management > Update benchmark data. The Update benchmark data page appears.
  2. Click Choose File under Benchmark User File and select the XML file to upload.
  3. Click Add to upload the XML file.
    For more information about the format of the XML file to upload, see Benchmark XML files.

Validating the benchmark update

To validate the benchmark update, select Administration > Benchmark Management > Benchmarks. In the Benchmarks page, the Population date column lists file dates. If the file date is custom defined, it displays the custom date, else it will display the date when the FTP files were last updated.
