 Question:

 What is the impact of Leap Seconds on APM? Is any remediation required?

 

 Environment:

 Any APM environment.

 

 Answer:

 APM, its databases, and components will not be effected by a leap second. The software is designed to automatically handle small changes in clock time regardless of  the cause, without any intervention.

 Leap seconds have occurred previously over the past few years, and no problems have ever been reported to CA Technical Support for these previous events.
