NetIQ AppManager 7.0.x


After you apply Hotfix 73283 for the management server, each time the server no longer requires a connection to the QDB, it destroys the connection instead of keeping it for re-use the next time it needs a connection. As a result, the management server creates a new connection each time it needs to connect to the QDB, which causes slow performance. For example, if you configure a job to collect data, the data takes a long time to appear in the Operator Console and the Control Center console. In addition, if you run mspioc.exe to display information about the persistent IOC (PIOC) queue, the results show a continuous increase in the size of the PIOC files.


To correct for this issue, the Management Server in this Hotfix has been modified as follows:

When the management server no longer requires an existing connection to the QDB, it returns the connection to a pool of unused connections. The next time it requires a connection, it checks the pool instead of automatically creating a new connection.


This is a known issue with the NetIQ AppManager 7.0.x Managemetn Server Service contained in Hotfix 73283.
