Security Manager 6.5.3

Situation

Optimizes Control Center Startup Process -This Hotfix resolves an issue where if a user who belongs to a large number of Active Directory groups starts the Security Manager Control Center, Security Manager might take a significant amount of time to display the Control Center. After you apply this Hotfix, when a user starts the Control Center, Security Manager displays the Control Center much more quickly, regardless of the number of groups to which the user belongs. (ENG296363)
Improves Central Computer Domain Handling -This Hotfix resolves an issue where if the central computer cannot communicate with an Active Directory network or domain, the NetIQ Security Manager Core service on the central computer does not start. (ENG303057)
Improves UNIX and iSeries Data Handling -This Hotfix resolves an issue where if the central computer receives a very large number of UNIX or iSeries real-time events in a short period of time, Security Manager may run out of memory and cause an exception. If Security Manager runs out of memory on the central computer, you can lose incoming UNIX or iSeries data.
After you apply this Hotfix, Security Manager can have a maximum of 100,000 events in the queue for processing, by default. If the queue receives more than 100,000 events, Security Manager generates a warning event with the identifier 31017 and stops receiving incoming UNIX or iSeries events until the queue drops to 50% of the configured maximum threshold. After the queue reaches 50%, Security Manager resumes receiving UNIX or iSeries events and generates a second 31017 event to indicate the Security Manager queue has resumed receiving events.

After you apply this Hotfix, when Security Manager reaches the maximum threshold and stops receiving events, you may still lose incoming data. However, this Hotfix allows the central computer to remain online and quickly resume receiving and processing real-time events once the queue drops to 50% of the threshold. (ENG305450)
