Issue/Introduction

Is it mandatory to use the NetOps Portal? We only use Performance Center and Spectrum. We have no need to combine the two as they already talk to each other as we require.

Environment

All supported DX NetOps Performance Management releases

Resolution

If not using a Data Aggregator and related components, the Portal server is not required if Spectrum is the sole Data Source configured.

If using other Data Sources like the Data Aggregator, Network Flow Analysis or others, as well as Spectrum using the Portal as a consolidated view into that various data becomes very very useful.
