    I need expects opinion on Spectrum Licencing or per SS performance capabilities as i am using 10.2.1 with number of model loaded on SS is 91000. we are facing performance issues on this environment.

    in our environment traps count per second is high so whats the capabilities of single SS and if we move to any other solution what's that?

    i want to know the limits of SS so i am able to take a decision about what to do next..

    Is distributed environment still exists or its ends with 64 bit SS.

    Yes, Distributed Environment is still supported.


    I would suggest to perform a Spectrum sizing:



    Run the $SPECROOT/perfCollector9 <SpectroSERVER_hosname>


    $ ./perfCollector9 serverA


    All the required information to fill in the sizer will be found in $SPECROOT/Performance/SpectroSERVER_hostname_SizerInfo.txt file


    Except the event rate. The community thread below will explain where you can get it:




    Q. How many traps can each SS handle efficiently?

    A: 600 traps/second sustained and 1000 traps/second peak for a window of about 10 minutes. The SpectroSERVER will queue up traps if larger trap rates are experienced, however this leads to an increase in memory utilization during that time.
