The recommended settings generally depend on the workload -- the types of jobs, their frequency of execution, how many target servers they run against, and how much time is available to complete them (i.e., your maintenance window). It would also be good to know if you're experiencing performance issues, on the GUI consoles for example, or jobs taking longer than you'd expect..
But even without this information, a couple of settings that could be tweaked:
- Looks like your max. work item threads is set to 5? That's too low. You can easily set it to 50, and possibly higher (100) if that helps performance. But that has to be in conjunction with...
- ... the max heap space allocated to the app server JVM. Given that you have 16GB of RAM on the machine, you could easily allocate 4GB to the JVM heap. I'm assuming that apart from the Bladelogic app server, there's no other app hosted on this machine.
Hi Tony Harding
How is your tuning going?
Did this get resolved?
If so, please can you update the discussion thread with details so that is can be marked as answered.
In addition to Neeran Karnik comments, you should be
a) running BMC supplied Gather Statistics package if you are using Oracle Database,
b) running regular cleanup
You should seriously be looking at upgrading to a more current version of BSA - Current version is 8.3SP1
