Configure MOM Agent Load Balancing

The MOM equalizes the metric count among the Collectors by disconnecting participating agents from over-burdened Collectors. The disconnected agents reconnect to the MOM, and then are redirected to under-burdened Collectors. Load balancing is only for the agent metric load; it is not applicable to the CA CEM data load.

The MOM equalizes the metric count among the Collectors by disconnecting participating agents from over-burdened Collectors. The disconnected agents reconnect to the MOM, and then are redirected to under-burdened Collectors. Load balancing is only for the agent metric load; it is not applicable to the CA CEM data load.
To configure MOM agent load balancing, perform these steps:
Notes:
  • When load balancing an overloaded Collector, before CA APM version 9.1, the MOM did not consider agents that were configured to connect directly to a Collector. Starting with CA APM version 9.1, the MOM considers and can disconnect pre9.1 and 9.1 and later agents. To keep pre9.1 and later agents connected to a specific Collector and not load balanced, add the agent - Collector element to loadbalacing.xml.
  • If your cluster is handling a full load that includes agents and TIMs, use weighting factors on Collectors running the Enterprise Manager services. Enterprise Manager services can require increased resources, so using weighting factors can compensate for possible reduced metric capacity.
