If you are looking into server load issues on your Jazz application server, you may want to review the Known Resource-intensive Scenarios article. The article aims to capture user and system scenarios across the ALM portfolio that can potentially drive relatively higher load on a Jazz application. Such scenarios can lead to server debt (such as out-of-memory errors) if they are run during peak times on systems that don't have sufficient spare resources available. These scenarios are qualified or quantified to make them easier to understand. Where possible, best practices are provided that can minimize or avoid the issue altogether.

Getting started with reporting by using Lifecycle Query Engine data sources in version 6.0.3: You can use the Report Builder in the Jazz Reporting Service to create and run reports about artifacts across projects or versioned data in configurations. Using indexed data from the Lifecycle Query Engine (LQE) data sources, you can, for example: Create a multi-project report that shows test cases, the requirements that they validate, and related defects. You can include designs from Design Manager by editing the SPARQL query in the Advanced section of Report Builder. Run this report, scoping the results by choosing a configuration (stream or baseline). Learn how to set up your environment and understand some of the limitations when you use either the LQE or LQE using Configurations data source. Consider the limitations described here before you use LQE data sources for production reports. If you are interested only in document-style reports, you can export Report Builder reports as Rational Publishing Engine templates to make document authoring easier. [Read more at Jazz.net...]

Are you considering migrating your data from Rational DOORS to Rational DOORS Next Generation(RDNG)?
Are you looking for guidance and best practice before you begin to be successful first time?
If so, then your starting point is definitely the detailed guidance on developerWorks on how to Migr
New Sizing and Best Practice Guide on Jazz.net's Deployment wiki
Since the developerWorks article was published, we realized that more detailed sizing information was required prior to executing the migration of data packages from DOORS 9 to RDNG. We collated pertinent sizing information from the Rati
There are significant improvements to the import timings with RDNG 6.0.2 release, so please refer to this article if you are evaluating an existing or future migration as this could indeed be an influencing factor.
The document details:
Sizing Guidelines for Rational DOORS Next Generation 6.x
Recommendations on the maximum sizes of your modules, projects and repositories so as to maximize your success when importing your packages and working in the future within RDNG.
The considerations for hardware are simplified from guidance published elsewhere in the Deployment wiki, but here they are explained within the context of how to plan for your new world.
Guidance on how to convert your Rational DOORS modules prior to migration
Invariably there will be modules and projects within DOORS 9 which will not match up to the guidance prescribed for RDNG. Use this section to understand how to easily manipulate your data before migrating.
What if the data to be migrated exceeds the recommendations?
The guidance is clearly aimed for the general use cases and is very much our strongest recommendation.
It is understood that there are very large enterprise requirements management estates out there. It is recommended that you contact IBM if this applies to you.
