Issue/Introduction

SpectroSERVER process seems to "hang" during model activation at SpectroSERVER startup when activating the RTM Inventory model.

Cause

For agents that support performance test types through MIB objects, CA Spectrum must perform external reads of these MIB objects at SpectroSERVER activation time to obtain the list of supported test types. This action can delay the SpectroSERVER activation time.

Environment

Release:
Component:

Resolution

Edit the $SPECROOT/SS/.vnmrc file and set the "spm_wait_activate" parameter to "yes" then restart the SpectroSERVER process.

Additional Information

Please reference the "Delayed SpectroSERVER Activation Resulting from External Reads" section of the documentation for more information.
