Enabling the Model Activation debug, and Global Collection Search debug, in the $SPECROOT/SS/.vnmrc file allowed us to see that model activation for RTM_TestHosts are taking a very long time to complete. This is holding up the Global Collection updates.
To enable the debugs:
1. Edit the $SPECROOT/SS/.vnmrc file
2. set wait_active=yes
3. set spm_wait_active=yes
4. add mdlact_debug=true
5. add real_time_search_debug=true
6. restart the SpectroSERVER
Spectrum reads the .vnmrc file at startup, therefore the SpectroSERVER must be stopped and restarted before the changes take affect. The debug outputs are written to the $SPECROOT/SS/VNM.OUT file.
If you find the RTM_TestHosts are taking thousands of seconds to activate, you will benefit from the Spectrum_10.02.00.D171 patch.
