Best Practices

This section lists some best practices administrators and users should review for optimal deployment, configuration, and operation of LFMT.

  • Deploy a separate LFMT Indexer/Collector pair at each datacenter if they are geographically distributed.
  • Deploy each LFMT Database in a DBMS within the same local as the associated LFMT Indexer/Collector pair.
  • During the initial deployment of LFMT, consider a phased approach for adding application servers to the log collection process.
  • Monitor the performance impact of LFMT on each application server during the initial deployment.
  • To reduce the performance impact of log file collection set the collection interval to be twice the required log file transfer time.
  • Turn off Anti-virus checking on the LFMT Server Host(s).
  • Limit the custom indexes for each application/application type. A general rule is 3 per application.
  • Set up scrubbing and indexing for only those application types that are required.
  • Ensure that network traffic generated by Genesys application servers has a higher priority LFMT traffic.
  • Set a low quality of service (QoS) value for network traffic generated by LFMT.
  • If possible, use a dedicated VLAN or LAN for LFMT traffic.
