HP Server Migration Pack 2.0.2
HP Virtual Machine Management Pack 2.0.2
Remote Support Configuration and Services 1.0

SIM Environment:
2742 Systems discovered (1078 identified SERVERS)

Issue:
SIM performance is incredibly slow on and off and I cannot put my finger on the main issue. At first SIM was almost inoperable then I found that if I change the schedules for the tasks below to once a day it did not lock up SIM as bad:
Hardware Status Polling for non Servers ran every 10 mins (And on start up of the CMS)
Hardware Status Polling for Servers ran every 5 mins (And on start up of the CMS)

This is now set up to be removed from the list of possible culprits.

With that done SIM was then somewhat "managable" but if a task was kicked off it would lock up SIM and I could not navigate or refresh the web page at a rate that I can say is effecient. It would take over 10+ mins to refresh or navigate to a page.

This is still the case and I am almost at a point to abandon the entire project.

mxdomainmgr.exe is always suspicious as its using 1,600,000K of memory and 100% of one of our CPU cores. This usually is corellated with a task being launched. Read some forum articles but nothing to help me.

I AM LOOKING FOR HELP on speeding up performance and\or figuring out the root cause so I can determine whether or not we should move on. We are planning on pruchasing the essentials packs for all our servers IF this is resolved!

I'm working with HP in trying to get a backend engineer to assist........

Signed frustrated and disapointed!

Cavalarie to help..tu tu tu tu tu ;)

Ok number one, you need to leen down some item,more information is adding up in you SQL data thta is is not needed.So you do not need all informational about you'ree systemes.
HP Insight menu >Events>Event filtering setting> Check Accept registered events with severity:
Check these Critical,Major,minor and Warning, DO NOT CHECK INFORMATIONAL.

PS:Don't ferget to apply you're points,there are situated next to every messages in these thread,next to every messages date and time has UNASSIGNED.

Re: Systems Insight Manager 5.1 with SP1 (with OSEM\ISEE) performance issues (1000+ managed machines)

Step #2 is to remove all informational date in you're server HP Insight menu Option>Events>Delete Evants

Selete >Informational Events..APPLY>RUN NOW

This reduce you re database alot and then you should a difference.

Re: Systems Insight Manager 5.1 with SP1 (with OSEM\ISEE) performance issues (1000+ managed machines)

Thanks for you tips, not sure if it will help my main issue but it is DEFINETLY a good modification as I am sure there are thousands+ of informational events due to the size of our enviroment. It is surely an excellent suggestion. For this I would give a full 10 points under tweak\tip for overall SIM configuration mod.

Not confident it will be the reason for our performance issue but if it turns out to be I will make sure to update this post.

Any other particular changes to minimze db transactions?

Not sure if because the little rabbit coming out of the hat icon will mean this is resolved or not but to be clear its not... :) thanks

Do you try it to see what it did anyway?

Dan

Re: Systems Insight Manager 5.1 with SP1 (with OSEM\ISEE) performance issues (1000+ managed machines)

Made the changes you recommended but still rather slow....
Going through the list to see if I can filter some discovered systems currently I have the following break down:

Enclosure=98
Cluster=2
Management Processor=729
Printer=2
Rack=33
Server=1017
Switch=2
Tape Library=5
Unknown=362
Unmanaged=518

If I filter out Management Processor from being discovered will the servers not see its ILO associated with?

I can't remeber where it was to choose what to keep or not keep depending on the type of discovered system.

Re: Systems Insight Manager 5.1 with SP1 (with OSEM\ISEE) performance issues (1000+ managed machines)

Did you delete all informational ?

There also information older then a certain time you can delete.

if you filter ILO it will be able to associate them.

Re: Systems Insight Manager 5.1 with SP1 (with OSEM\ISEE) performance issues (1000+ managed machines)

I believe it did, showed completed in the task results. How can I confirm manually?

Take a few server out of the blue and verify there events.

Dan

Re: Systems Insight Manager 5.1 with SP1 (with OSEM\ISEE) performance issues (1000+ managed machines)

I have a lot of "Discovered System" events that I cannot delete..... any way to delete them. I get:

Could not delete all selected events.
One or more events are discovered systems
one or more events are in pending state.

Re: Systems Insight Manager 5.1 with SP1 (with OSEM\ISEE) performance issues (1000+ managed machines)

ohnn oh...that not a good signe,usally everything should be cleared, you could delete(Server) and rediscover those items,try a few to see what happens.

Dan

Re: Systems Insight Manager 5.1 with SP1 (with OSEM\ISEE) performance issues (1000+ managed machines)

Just as a side note, noticed that there are 35000+ events older then 90 days.... and 100,000+ events in total. Will work on clearing these up first.

My issue is RESOLVED................. we went through multiple techs and suggestions on things to try but none were as useful as the following which was resolved by Steve (ISS Elevation Engineer):

Apparently my mxjobs table list was in the 100,000, so anytime I would attempt to navigate to tasks or results in sim it would simply hang (it would try to load but would never finish), clearing this table has returned all to normal!!!! Thanks HP!
