  • If Tivoli Storage Manager monitoring agents are installed on the Tivoli Monitoring server, memory requirements increase quickly as the number of Tivoli Storage Manager servers are monitored from that one IBM Tivoli Monitoring server.
  • If a Tivoli Storage Manager monitoring agent is installed on a Tivoli Storage Manager server, only a single instance of the agent is running on the Tivoli Storage Manager server and no increases in memory requirements are needed by the IBM Tivoli Monitoring server.
