Covers Spectrum SpectroSERVER, OneClick (java client and WebApp) and SRM/CABI integration.
Answer: Spectrum's only SSH use is in NCM functionality.
Only used if devices supporting/requiring SSH are configured for NCM.
Spectrum would use SSH in that scenario, but it's not in control of the SSH tools.
Spectrum doesn't require, install or control SSH tools.
Under the control of system admins.
Covers the Portal web server, Data Aggregator, Data Collector and Data Repository component systems.
Answer: Performance Managers only use of SSH is for Data Repository (DR) DB nodes.
Vertica requires it for install/upgrade cycles run by the install owner, and for regular operation by the OS level DB admin user. It's also used in remote host backup processing.
Performance Manager doesn't care which specific ciphers are available for use. We only care about a successful connection between systems. That is what really matters, whether or not after disabling ciphers a valid SSH connection between systems can still be made.
Managing the ciphers allowed/used by SSH is done at the OS level by system admins. Configure sshd to use whatever ciphers are required.
Performance Manager will use the system ssh to talk to the system sshd. There should be some common cipher available to SSH tools after having disabled the weak ones.
Covers all NFA component systems.
Answer: There is no use of SSH by NFA components. Any SSH use on NFA is hosts isn't required by the software.
