Question:

Is there way to increase the number of RBM scripts to run on an OPMS simultaneously? It looks like there are 6 running by default. Is that the max? 

Environment:
Current ASM release
Answer:

Six is the default setting, but it can be changed. The procedure to increase the number of RBM Workers - on the OPMS server

1) edit the file /etc/default/asm-smartpop-rbtm, and increase the value for number of workers

2) run dpkg-reconfigure asm-smartpop-rbtm to implement the changes

 

Monitor the OPMS closely after making these changes, as increasing the number of workers will increase resource (memory, CPU, and disk) usage.
