Issue/Introduction

Can the DX Netops Performance Management Data Aggregator and DX Netops Performance Management Data Collector be combined on to one server?

We may have a situation where we only have 3 servers available and wanted to know which servers would work best together on one platform.  

Environment

Release : 20.2

Component : DX Netops, CA Performance Management

Resolution

There is a low scale install that combines the DA and DC.

Note the limitations of this type of install.

The sizing wizard will note whether this type of installation is appropriate for your environment:

Please note the resources required by the sizing wizard.

Undersizing resources for an environment or trying to use a low scale install for a non-low scale environment will lead to problems with that environment.


Additional Information

Note that of the Data Aggregator, Data Repository, Data Collector, Netops Portal (CA Performance Center/CAPC) this is the only configuration where those components can be combined, and only in situations where it is appropriate for the size of the environment as recommended by the sizing wizard.
