many files in processedcore folder



We have UCMDB 2019.02 with CP 2019.11.102.

We have 2 virtualized DFP. (Xeon E5-2650 (8 cores) 16GB RAM)
One is working very well because it's manages about 1000 nodes
The other DFP is saturated because it's manages many nodes (ip's and ranges). About 4800 nodes.

When the Inventory discovery by scanner job runs, many files begin to appear in the incoming folder of the DFP. After several minutes these scan files goes to the processedcore folder, and again, after a few minutes the files goes to sending folder. Finally the files in the sending folder dissapear and the data CI's appears in the UCMDB.

These workflow works well in the low-load DFP but in the high-load DFP the scan files retains in the processedcore many days.
Sometimes we have to restart the probe so thtat it starts processing the files.
We think that the high number os scan files may be the problem.

Is there any parameter or config to increase the performance of the high-load DFP?

We can not balance the number of IP/range between the DFP because these ranges are in other network.

We have read about increase the XMLenricher threads, memory of XMLenricher... etc

We have not sure if the XMLenricher is the problem (files in processedcore folder). Maybe the postgres DB of the DFP have something to do in this problem....?


Any solutions?

Re: many files in processedcore folder

I would try to keep each probe under 2k discovered nodes. You can try to allocate more memory to the XML Enricher process but there are also other Probe components which are affected and the fix isn't by just increasing a single value.

You need at least another probe.
