Issue:
The Host_SystemEDGE VCAIM configuration has thousands and thousands of vms.  Spectrum needs to query multiple tables and process thousands of entries to keep status up to date.  Spectrum uses standard SNMP get-next which isn't as efficient as get-bulk.  Is there a way to enable get-bulk in Spectrum so that it won't overwhelm the SystemEdge agent and/or back up Spectrum?
Resolution:
As of CA Spectrum release 10.3.1 the SNMP "get-bulk" function does not exist in any version.  CA engineering has tentatively determined that CA Spectrum will be enhanced in a release due out in 2019 that will support get-bulk.
