HP Performance Manager 9.2 and Performance Agent Compatibility
as per the HPE Software Product Support Matrix Tool (SUMA), HP Performance Manager version v9.2 and Reporter v4 do not have any "Performance Agent" versions listed as compatible/supported (only "Operations Agent" entries) while Performance Manager version 9.0 and Reporter 3.9 list Performance Agents down to version 4.7 as supported. At first sight, a quick test on Performance Manager v9.2 against a Performance Agent running v5.0 showed data graphs as expected.
Is Performance Manager v9.2 and Reporter 4.0 compatible with Performance Agents in the same way as v9.0/v3.9 were? We want to avoid having two installations of Performance Manager, one for newer Operation agents and one for older Performance agents.
Its single agent from version 11.00 onwards. And the PA 4.7x or 5.x are not supported officially anymore. I recomend to upgrade the older agents to newer versions - OA 11.1x or 12.xx.
I understand that the officially supported way is to have the latest Operations agents deployed. But from a technical perspective, do you know if they work together? I continued testing with a Performance Agent version as low as v4.0 running on RHEL3 - yes we still have some of these 🙂 and Operations agent does not support this platform - and it looked like both Reporter 4.0 and Performance Manager 9.2 had no issues integrating this agent.
