Question about requirements "Agent rows written per minute"
Please clarefy about this term "Agent rows written per minute".
1) Is this attribute for each one agent or this count of the sum all agents?

2) Linux agent has 6213 rows incerts per minute, so the Extra small its bad idea?
IPM Component instead of RTEMS
There is not an equivalent of the RTEMS for IPM. All agents need the ability to send their data and events to the APM server.
If the agents do not have direct network connectivity to the APM server then you can install a forward proxy such as IBM HTTP
Server or Squid and configure the agents to use the forward proxy to tunnel their traffic to the APM server using the
instructions at this link:
How could I monitor WebSphere Liberty application on Bluemix with APMSaaS?
We all know there're some monitoring alternatives like Monitoring & Analytics + Availability Monitoring in Bluemix public.

Synthetic transaction agent - Historical data collection.
Hi, I'm using the APM Synthetic Transactions agent to monitor a couple of websites, and we would like to keep the history
for longer than the 12 hours that I can see in the UI. I know there is data kept locally in the warehouse, as there
is the option to compare against previous days. We have a customer who would like to use the data to display the
service availability for up to one year. What are my options?
From memory, I don't there is the option to offload the data to the ITM warehouse.
dwAnswers - Week of Mar 20th
Can the IPM V8.1.3 Server Databases operate in encypted mode?
For example, can the following IPM V8.1.3 server databases be encrypted?
DATAMART, SCR32, and WAREHOUS ?
Why are we receiving alerts for RESTART?
We built a situation
so that If queue name is !=*.RESTART and queue size is > 10 % and queue is not alias queue
then send an alert.
For some reason we are receiving also alerts for .RESTART situations too , why?
