IT architects and system administrators use the following information to plan a new deployment for BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management. For an upgrade, reference the deployment use cases and system requirements to understand how your current implementation might change; however, for full information and instructions on how to upgrade, see Upgrading.
|Understand the end-to-end implementation process, from planning, to populating the system with data, and to tuning.|
|Record your planning decisions as you read through the planning information.|
|Search for questions you might have about deploying Infrastructure Management, and get answers from subject matter experts who have insight into the best practices for deployment.|
|Review the physical deployment options, and review best practices for deploying servers, databases, and consoles.|
|Size your deployment to select the appropriate deployment use case, select the appropriate hardware, and achieve a scalable implementation.|
Review the measurements used to develop sizing guidelines and best practices for tuning the system for performance.
You can use the performance tuning guidelines to plan for configuration changes post-installation or to resolve performance challenges that after deployment.
|Performance benchmarks and tuning|
|Acquire systems that have been tested, and ensure those systems have the appropriate software installed to support the Infrastructure Management product.||System requirements and product compatibility|
|Check the ports used by the various Infrastructure Management components and plan whether or not to modify pre- or post-installation port settings to avoid conflicts in the environment.|
|Understand what considerations or changes you should make in your environment to achieve a secure implementation.|
|Check the localized operating systems on which the product components can be deployed.||Language information|
