LDMS9 overloading Oracle 11g

Since upgrading to LDMS9 sp2, we've had problems with the inventory service dropping offline. Our Oracle DBA was noticing the database listener would stop responding, which seemed to cause the service problems, and has been looking at Oracle. This morning, after rolling out patches over the weekend, I noticed that the inventory data is badly out of date on many machines, including mine. (Example - system does daily inventory scans, but machines are showing nothing since late July or early August.) I had clened out the ErrorScan folder 10 days ago, and in the last 10 days I have ~7300 failures in there (about 3/4 of all scans, if my ~1000 machines are scanning daily for the last 10 days.) Asked the DBA, and he had finally determined that LANDesk is overloading the listeners with the number of concurrent database sessions trying to connect to Oracle, and asked that I limit LDMS to 120 concurrent connections.


Is there a way to do something like this? I can't find anything in the community about it...


This isn't a huge system, either - one core, a dozen total users, about 1000 devices.

    Are you sure with the Overloading?

    You may check your Agent Options, how often you make Scans and so on,

    to reduce this.

    I would suggest you to open a case for this.


    Best Regards

    Re: LDMS9 overloading Oracle 11g

    Are you using the latest MCP Patches (0519?

    I remember that in one (Core) of them, was a fix for Oracle Database with updating PK.

    You may ask the Support for it.


    >>Feb 2011 MCP Datamart Creates invalid PK column leading to invalid triggers for Oracle users.

    Limiting the # of concurrent sessions will seriously cripple your LANDesk functionality. If you are managing 1000 nodes, then you should have as many as 200+ concurrent sessions running. LANDesk requires a database with close to dedicated database funcitionality.

    What do you mean by having four nodes? Have you setup multiple inventory services? For a 1,000 node environment this sound like a bit of overkill if you have.Not necessarily related to your issue, but sounded odd.


    Definitely look into the patch since it sounds like what you are encountering, and having constant errors certainly won't be helping your performance.
