Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management


High Utilization on the ZCM 10 server when Patch Management Subscription Service initially starts.


A tunable parameter exists to control the number of threads that the ZCM 10 system uses to process content. To change the parameter, do the following:
  1. Set the MaxConcurrentImports value in the file Program Files\Novell\ZENworks\conf\loader\ContentImport.xml to a value of 1 instead of the default value of 2. For example:
        Parameter Name="MaxConcurrentImports">1
  2. Restart the Novell ZENworks Loader Service.
Changing the parameter to 1 will slow down the processing of all content, including Patch content.
