QUESTION:

The "Consider the following recommendations for the integration" section of the "Integrating CA Spectrum and CA UIM through the Web Server for Server Management" document located at "https://wiki.ca.com/display/CASP941/Integrating+CA+Spectrum+and+CA+UIM+through+the+Web+Server+for+Server+Management" recommends to use a OneClick web server which is not integrated with Spectrum Report Manager. Why is that?

 

ANSWER:

In our internal performance tests, we observed that if Spectrum OneClick has Spectrum Report Manager(SRM), SRM sync threads will take precedence compared to other threads and typically takes longer duration based on the data in the customer environment. This will potentially delay UIM sync threads and results in OneClick performance issues and time out for subsequent UIM syncs. 

Keeping in view of the above constraints, we recommend to have UIM integration with a OneClick web server which is not integrated with Spectrum Report Manager.
