Configuring the advanced Data Processing Service settings

You can change the advanced Data Processing Service (DPS) settings.

You can configure the Data Processing Service settings when you register the DPS. You can also make changes to the settings of an existing DPS from the System Topology > Map View or System Topology > Grid View views.

If you modify more than one DPS at a time, only the common setting tabs and fields appear. Select each DPS individually to view all settings that apply to the DPS.

Registering the Data Processing Service

Warning:
When you change the advanced settings, you can render the Data Processing Service invisible to other components. You can also harm the speed of data collection and job processing on the DPS. You should only change these settings when asked to do so by Symantec Technical Support.

The Advanced settings include the following:

  • TCP/IP port settings

  • Session manager settings

  • Scheduler settings

You can change the following TCP/IP port setting:

Port

The TCP/IP Port other components use to communicate with the DPS.

 

You can change the following settings that the Data Processing Service uses internally to define how the Session Manager behaves:

 

Command Threads

The minimum number and maximum number of processor threads available for the Session Manager. This thread pool is used to collect job results and perform other maintenance tasks. These settings are appropriate for most installations. If the Data Processing Service is hosted by a very high performance computer, more available threads may improve performance.

Job Poll Interval

The time, in seconds, the Data Processing Service waits between attempts to collect job results.

 

You can change the following settings the Data Processing Service uses internally to define how the Scheduler behaves:

 

Command Threads

The minimum number and maximum number of processor threads available for the Data Processing Service Scheduler. If the Data Processing Service is hosted by a very high performance computer, more available threads may improve performance.

Submit Threads

The minimum number and maximum number of processor threads available for the scheduler Job Submission thread pool. This thread handles newly submitted jobs.

Resume Threads

The minimum number and maximum number of processor threads available for the scheduler Job Resumption thread pool. This thread handles any jobs that were submitted, transferred to the scheduler, and later resumed.


To configure the advanced Data Processing Service settings

  1. Go to the System Topology > Grid View or System Topology > Map View.

  2. In the System Topology > Grid View or the System Topology > Map View, right-click the Data Processing Service component and click Edit Settings.

  3. In the Data Processing Service area of the Component Settings dialog box, click Advanced.

  4. On the DPS - Advanced panel, make any required changes to the advanced settings.
