Re: cluster support for asset manager 9.4

Hi Ankita,


Asset Manager is a standalone application; it is not cluster aware; instead it can be hosted on a platform that ensures high availability. Critical components in terms of availability are:

  • Asset Manager Database
  • Automated Process Manager
  • Web Services and Web Tier serves


Database should be considered first to be protected from single point of failure. Oracle has High Availability feature; I guess MS Sql server does not. However, it can be hosted on MS cluster; failover cluster supposed to be an optimum solution. The cluster itself should take care of the application; nothing need to be configured at the application level. The whitepaper “HP Asset Manager Asset Manager® 5.x High Availability Guidelines” gives you a direction. The document is available under doc\white_papers folder of Asset Manager installation directory, e.g. C:\Program Files\HP\Asset Manager 9.31 en\doc\white_papers.


The other two components can be hosted on standalone server with reliable hardware. The server hosting Web Services and Web Tier need to have better resources.


One more point: A physical server always gives better performance compared to a virtual one with same resources.


Please let us know if you have further queries.

There is no cluster mode in Asset Manager. Any clustering you do is outside of AM, and must be configured there.
