Use the information in this topic to help make decisions about a new implementation of BMC TrueSight Operations Management, BMC TrueSight App Visibility Manager, or Borland Silk Performer Synthetic Transaction Monitoring. To plan the deployment of BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management, see Planning considerations and worksheets for Infrastructure Management .

If you are upgrading from BMC TrueSight App Visibility Manager (formerly BMC Application Diagnostics), see Upgrading. If you are upgrading from a previous version of BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management (formerly BMC ProactiveNet Performance Manager), see  Upgrading BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management

Tip

In the Tools menu, select Export to Word to create a planning worksheet from this page for recording your implementation decisions.

If you are hosting multiple tenants, perform this activity for each tenant.

Deployment sizing worksheets

It is important to estimate the size of your deployment correctly because the steps to follow and the design elements vary depending on the size of the deployment. Review Sizing and scalability considerations to understand the capacity requirements.

Important

If you are also deploying BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management, read the  Sizing and scalability considerations and best practices to understand the scaling and sizing requirements of the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management server, Integration Service, and monitoring solutions.
