NFA Harvester isn't keeping up.
We recently migrated from Reporter/Analyzer to a 2-tier configuration of NFA 9.3.0. The servers are VMs under ESXi5.5, where physical hardware is consistent with CA's requirements (Dual Quad-core XEONs, onboard 12-spindle RAID, significant memory). We have about 275 interfaces, and 250 devices.
Our Harvester is configured as an 8x with 8gb RAM, running on Win2008R2. Task Manager shows 5% CPU and 35% memory usage.
We see the reaper getting behind by up to 2 hours. ReaperWork shows a steady coming and going of files, but ReaperInput is very slow to empty. The system doesn't appear to be taxed, but data is not getting processed quickly enough,
Is there some performance tweaking we can do to speed up Harvester processing - maybe more java processes or increased cache buffer sizes?
