EA Performance Optimization Guidelines

This section describes the optimal performance environments in which to run Enterprise Analyzer, including selecting the right hardware configuration for specific types of usage, and optimizing the EA configuration for the selected configuration. The suggestions for performance improvements are focused on the repository build phase of the workspace.

The most time-consuming and hardware-intensive aspects of running Enterprise Analyzer are the source verification and database loading during the workspace build phase. The guidelines include suggestions for improving performance by using multiple Queue Processors and taking advantage of multiple CPU cores, using the parallel verification option which determines the number of used Queue Processors, and guidelines for defining the number of Queue Processors needed for a given configuration of available machines and database server power.

There are two deployment scenarios for Enterprise Analyzer:
