Are there recommendations for which subnet the OBR Database should be installed

Jump to solution

Hello,

My customer wants to install OBR 10.40 and integrate it with an OBM instance. Are there any restrictions or recommendations of the subnet of the OBR database that should be considered for the install? Is there any documentation that covers this topic?

Thanks,

Kia

Hello Kia,

There is not 'official' documentation that I know about.

However, it would be wise to have the OBR Database (Vertica) on the same subnet as the OBR server.

There are actually 3 databases involved with an OBR installation.

  • PostgreSQL - OBR Process DB
  • Vertica - Repository DB for reports
  • SQL Anywhere - SAP BO Command DB and used to store SAP BO information and authentication.

Depending on how you decide to deploy your environment will make a difference.

You can also configure Remote Collectors to collect information from other servers and then send it to OBR.

I would recommend that you use the sizing guide (included on doc portal) for OBR 10.40 to make sure that your environment has sufficient resources to function properly.

I would then recommend that however you deploy your environment, that you have your OBR and Vertica servers (if not the same) on the same subnet.

The main collection and processing of data is done by the OBR server and then placed in the Vertica DB.

The SAP BO application is used for authentication and reports.

Review the OBR 10.40 Product Documentation for more information.  It does include a section for General Recommendations and Best Practices within the Install Section.

I hope that this is helpful.

Mark
