Tuning SDI for faster tasks
The default timing for SDI tasks is geared for large environments of N,000 endpoints. For dev, testing or lab environments it may be desirable to tune SDI for faster task processing.
Target times for an SDI job can be estimated based on the following algorithm:
2* (DMS Federated Polling period)
+ Endpoint JES Polling Period
+ actual job runtime
+ dcm import time
= Total Time for SDI job to complete
Out of the box this would be close to 1 hour and 30 minutes for even a basic inventory scan.
If endpoint JES polling is set down to 5 minutes and DMS federated polling period is still the default 10 minutes then the job can take:
2*10 + 5 + 2 + 2 = ~29 minutes
There are 2 changes to ensure an SDI job completes in about 10 minutes or less:
1. Change the DMS federated polling from a 10 minute interval to 2 minutes
- this variable is stored in WAS and is called DMS_FEDERATED_AGENT_POLL_INTERVAL_IN_MINUTES
It can be changed in jes.properties on the endpoint, or, prior to agent install on the TCA-Subagent JES configuration template of the TCA stack.
- stop the agent
- backup the ../ep/runtime/agent/subagents/jes.properties
- make a change to the PollingInterval value, for example, PollingInterval=00\:05, would be 5 minutes
- start the agent
device id = #####
parameter name = PollingInterval
parameter value = 00:05
You can build this workflow into a Favorite Task or Provisioning Task Definition and run it against groups of computers.
See links below for assistance on changing the polling intervals.
