Configuring performance settings

In the Alloy Discovery > Performance section, you can configure how Alloy Discovery performs simultaneous tasks.

Maximum number of active tasks - the limit for tasks that Alloy Discovery runs concurrently. You can configure multitasking as follows:

  • In the Maximum number of active tasks field, enter the number of concurrent active tasks. The default number is 3.

  • To disable multitasking, enter 1.

    NOTE: When more than one task attempts to execute the same operation on a single Network Node (for example, audit the same computer), only one operation will be executed. Other concurrent operations will be skipped. The Skipped status will be shown in the Task Progress window.

Maximum number of parallel audits - the limit for audit processes throughout all the active tasks that Alloy Discovery performs concurrently. You can configure parallel auditing as follows:

  • In the Maximum number of parallel audits field, enter the number of concurrent audit processes. The default number is 8.

  • To disable parallel auditing, enter 1.

    NOTE: When the limit for the parallel operations is reached, no task can start new audit process until Alloy Discovery is free to operate.

    NOTE: The audit data within one task can only be uploaded to the database one at a time.

Enable multithreading for SNMP - when selected, enables Alloy Discovery to retrieve SNMP data from multiple devices simultaneously.
