This blog covers the solution to response time delays that may be seen with web service calls in IBM Business Process Manager Advanced V8.x. The problem and its solution that are discussed in this blog apply to IBM Business Process Manager Advanced topology that is configured with DB2.
For the sake of this scenario, we will assume that you are using a WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V8.0.x.x and an IBM Business Process Manager Advanced V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 two-node, four-cluster topology using DB2 ESE V9.7.0 Fix Pack 6.
This blog covers the multicast traffic considerations with multiple IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) V8.5 environments in a flat network. It also covers the steps that must be taken to address these considerations.
For the sake of this discussion, we can assume that a customer is on a WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V8.5.x.x (WAS ND) and a BPM Standard V8.5 two node three cluster topology.

Because the WebSphere Application Server versions are different for the latest versions of IBM Business Process Manager V8.5 and IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1.x, it can be a difficult task to augment IBM Business Monitor on an existing IBM Business Process Manager installation. Therefore, it limits the topology options.
Besides, even in IBM Integration Designer V8.5, a model generated in the Monitor Model Editor works without problems except when an artifact, that is bundled with the monitor model application, is developed in the same IBM... [More]
