What are the best practices to host AppManager Enterprise within a VM environment?


While NetIQ fully supports AppManager Enterprise deployed within VM environments, several cautions must be keep in mind...

  • Multiple core AppManager virtual systems on one physical VM host are limited to the virtualization capibilities of the physical VM host.
  • Pay close attention to the available disk throughput of the physical VM host, AppManager is a disk I/O intensive product and can receive very large amounts of data from a large number of systems which will need to be processed quickly. (Especially in Performance Profiler (AMPP) environments).
  • It is recommended to not place all of your production AppManager Enterprise infrastructure on one physical VM host.
  • Customers implementing AppManager within virtual environments are likely to see performance issues if done improperly.
