Oncommand/ Operations Manager Slow after upgrade to 5

Hi I upgraded to oncommand 5 and ops manager/dfm is so-ooooo - slooooow now... (Not to mention it does't work with newer browsers)

What about the rest of you. Have you noticed this to be unresponsive when going through the web pages etc? If so what dod you do to reolve or is it just me?

Re: Oncommand/ Operations Manager Slow after upgrade to 5

Hi Peter,

     There are two things that happen after upgrade to 5.0. Which were added as part of some house keeping of the database and the perfdata files.

After upgrade to 5.0, the job history of protection Mgr/Backup Mgr are deleted//purge from the db beyond 90days. Which was not the case until 5.0.

Same way the perfdata files are compacted on a weekly basis to remove data for stale volume in dfm db.

Both these process are quite intensive on the first run due to the amount of data that needs to be purged/compacted. But once this first run finishes, it will improve your performance and recurring cleaning/house keeping will not have any impact.

I upgraded a couple months ago and it’s been horrible since. So I am not entirely sure what I am supposed to do now.. Are you saying purge all old historical data?

Hi Peter,

     What is the OS flavor of your DFM server  ? Are you seeing this sluggishness in OnCommand Console or even in Operations Manager Console and NetApp Management console too ?

If its been 2 months since upgrade then its not due to what I mentioned above.

Re: Oncommand/ Operations Manager Slow after upgrade to 5

Windows 2008 SP2 x64 4GB RAM and 1 vCPU (it’s a VM). This ran fine before the upgrade and currently the performance counters seem to be bored.

The on command console is sluggish when I go for reporting information etc and when I want to view events etc its take about 40- 80 seconds to bring up a page (that’s what the counter shows in the lower right) And as you may know it doesn’t work well with IE9.

Re: Oncommand/ Operations Manager Slow after upgrade to 5

Hi Peter,

           Can you increase your RAM and CPU ? and tell us if you see any difference ? Also as you would have seen in the pop up during launch that only IE 8 is supported and not 9.

How big is your environment ? What all functionality are you using like, Protection Performance etc ?

I don’t see adding more resources would make a difference. I am monitoring 6 nodes. I like to look at reporting and performance data.

Here are some current performance on the virtual machine without increasing RAM. I know that would be the easiest thing to assume and already thought of it myself. But I have to ask why as the memory it has now isn’t being fully utilized.

Re: Oncommand/ Operations Manager Slow after upgrade to 5

Hey Peter,

I would probably agree with your assessment of your memory allocation - it seems to be more than sufficient.  It might be worth throwing in another CPU.  Even though your single core does not seem to be overloaded, I have found that even two cores allow for more parallel processing and can speed things up.

Well folks no difference with that as suspected. Anyone have anything else? Perhaps I should build a linux version of this and migrate the db to the new linux oncommand server?

Hi Peter,

     Generally response time of OnCommand is better with FireFox and Linux. Change and let us know your experience.
