Deploying Optim Performance Manager in large scale environments

Each monitored database, or database partition in the case of partitioned database environments, requires operating system resources (memory, CPU, disk space, and network) on the Optim Performance Manager server to collect, process, and store the monitoring data. It is important to ensure that your Optim Performance Manager server has sufficient capacity to monitor your intended environment.

For purposes of this article, the following environments are considered as large scale:

  • Optim Performance Manager monitoring a large number of databases (greater than 30)
  • Optim Performance Manager monitoring one or more partitioned databases with more than 24 partitions
  • Optim Performance Manager with Extended Insight monitoring databases with a transaction rate greater than 10,000 transactions per minute
  • Any combination of the above.
