Management Point Footprint

Last Updated: Aug 02, 2018 08:37PM IST
By default the Management Point is configured to use 8 simultaneous threads for
  • Scanning remote devices
  • Taking activity snapshots of RDS servers
  • Querying virtualisation environments, application servers, cloud services etc. 
This can be modified as necessary using the Management Point Configuration tool.

Scanning Hardware & Software Inventory

Each thread can scan a single device at a time. A successful scan generally takes between 5 and 30 seconds to complete.  The follow table details how much data is typically transferred during a scan.
 
Operation Range   Average  
Fast Scan (Sent) 1,250 kB 1,250 kB
Fast Scan (Rcvd)   50 - 1,000 kB   400 kB
Scan (Sent)  250 - 700 kB   450 kB
Scan (Rcvd) 100 - 1,500 kB  900 kB

Each active scanning thread typically uses between 200 and 300 kb/s while scanning. By default, successfully scanned devices are re-scanned every 30 days.
 

RDS Activity Snapshots

Each thread can snapshot a single RDS server at a time. A successful snapshot generally takes between 5 and 10 seconds to complete.  The follow table details how much data is typically transferred during a snapshot.
 
Operation Range   Average  
Snapshot (Sent) 1,250 kB 1,250 kB
Snapshot (Rcvd)   2 - 75 kB   10 kB

By default, snapshots are repeated every 15 minutes.

For the majority of environments, 8 simultaneous active threads do not cause any network performance degradation. The maximum number of simultaneous threads supported is 256. If the Management Point is to be used to manage a particularly slow network (e.g. a remote location with a high latency or low bandwidth (<1Mb/s) network connection), the user may choose to reduce the maximum thread count to 4 or less.
