BSM design question

Jump to solution

Dear Sirs,

What are the recommendations for installing BSM,  Single server or 2 servers (DPS and GW)?

Bellow are the parameters:

OM server with 300 nodes

SiS server with 300 nodes

NNMi with 300 nodes

RUM and BPM will be monitoring 30 Business Applications from 80 locations

Integrated with uCMDB and Service Manager as well

10 active users

 

Thank you and Best Regards,

Rabee Merheb

Hi Rabee,

Have a look at the BSM Getting Started Guide PDF.  This has lots of useful information, and Chapter 8 - Deployment Planning briefly discusses one-machine v distibuted.

Personally, I would recommend having some form of DR/Contingency for a production system.

You can add more servers later if needed, but that can take time in a production environment which is not good if you hit capacity limits fast.  Gateway capacity is based on concurrent users and also events per second (EPS) from the Data Collectors.  EPS isn't specifically covered in the calculator - probably because there are lots of other factors in the detailed configuration that would affect the EPS value - especially with RUM.

RUM is actually still set to 'No' on your screenshot above, so RAM requirements will go up a bit more.

Regards,

Tim

Hi Rabee,

This sizing calculator will help you decide what you need:

I recommend only using a single server deployment in development systems.  You can have multiple Gateways for capacity and contingency, and you can add a standby/failover DPS if you need higher availability.

Hi Tim,

Thank you for your reply,

This is a production and not a development enviroment.

Hi Rabee,

Sounds like a medium model with small number of users, to have an accurate estimation you need to determine additional factors such as:  number of transactions for BPM and how many locations per transaction with that use the Deployment Calculator Tab. Otherwise, use the Certified Deployments Tab for guidelines.

Hi,

Bellow is an image of the Deployment calculator.

The certified deployments does not help in specifying the point where to start deploying BSM on 2 servers.

Kindly assist in giving your recommendations.

Hi Rabee,

With the references & documentation provided you can plan your distributed environment with comfort. But form the above results, the amount RAM is short for the GW so consider 9GB RAM & 8 CPU machine. Moreover, with the cost of HW nowaday, consider 20GB RAM with 8 CPUs machine for the DPS. 

If you need further assistance please contact HPE Support.
