Configuring Performance Settings

You can configure how Network Inventory performs simultaneous tasks as follows:

  1. Navigate to Network Inventory > Performance.
  2. By default, Network Inventory runs up to 3 concurrent tasks. You can change the value in the Maximum number of active tasks field as needed. If you want to disable multitasking and perform only one task at a time, 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), Network Inventory will execute only one operation. Other concurrent operations will be skipped.

  3. By default, Network Inventory runs up to 8 concurrent audit processes throughout all the active tasks. You can change the value in the Maximum number of parallel audits field as needed. If you want to disable parallel auditing, enter 1.

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

  4. You can define whether Network Inventory retrieves SNMP data from multiple devices simultaneously by using the Enable multithreading for SNMP check box.
  5. Click OK.
