This article is intended to be used for people who want to understand how to optimize Cisco’s optimization manager for performance, health, and ease of use.
It is written for those new to the Cisco Optimisation Manager (CIM) and does not cover the basics of how to create an efficient optimization management process.
CIM is the most popular and well-known Cisco optimization management software for Linux and is a highly customizable tool that allows you to set up a number of different settings to customize Cisco’s optimized management for performance.
In this article, we will learn how to maximize performance and efficiency with Cisco’s Optimization manager for Linux, so that you can manage your organization with more control and efficiency.
The Optimization article article is an extension of the previous article that explains how to implement the Optimization management process for Cisco’s Cisco IOS and Cisco Catalyst 14500 servers.
We will learn the basics for how to setup an Optimization process for each of the Cisco Ios, Cisco Catalyst 7500 servers, and Cisco IMS/CAM routers.
After you understand how Optimization works, you can then take advantage of the results of your optimization process and improve your performance by increasing the number of active users, optimizing performance on your network, or reducing the number and complexity of network connections.
If you are a new user, please read the next section to get started.
The article explains the basics and features of the Optimisation process for CIM, how to set the parameters for the Optimizer, and how to run the Optimizers results.
The following sections describe the different types of optimization parameters and how they affect the process of creating and managing the Optimizations results.
Optimization parameters for Cisco IOs and Cisco AMs Optimization Parameters¶ Optimization options include: Enable-Optimize-All – Enable all optimizations, even if they don’t run.
Enable-Pre-Load-All (pre-load) – Pre-load all optimizations.
Enable – Preload-Active – Pre load all optimizations (preload).
Disable – Disable-Preload-AllOptimizations – Disable all optimizations except pre-load ones.
Disable-ActiveOptimize – Disable active optimization (pre load).
Pre-Load – Pre loading.
EnableDefault – Enables default values for all optimization parameters.
EnablePredictOptimization – Enters the pre load optimization mode.
EnableTuningOptimizer – Enverts the pre- load optimization optimization mode, enables optimizations in the tuning mode, and enables optimization for performance on the server.
DisableTuning – Enforces the default values in the preload optimization mode and in the tunings optimization mode for all parameters.
Performance Optimization Parameter¶ Performance optimization parameters are defined in Cisco IAS, which are described below.
If these parameters are enabled, you will not be able to configure the Optimized Performance settings in Cisco AM and Cisco Cisco IIS.
The most common use of these parameters is to disable the preloads.
If your server does not have preloads, you should disable them in the Optimize-All optimization mode as described in the following sections.
If the Optimizes have been configured for preloads by default, you must specify the Optimizing options in the Cisco AM settings to turn them off.
The Cisco AM Optimization Optimization Settings section describes the different parameters that can be configured in the Performance Optimizations, such as preloads and active optimizations.
Performance Options for Cisco AM & Cisco Iis Optimization Options¶ You can configure the Performance optimization options in Cisco AIS.
You can specify the following Optimization settings: EnableTuneOptimizers – Enforce the default Optimizations tuning values for performance optimizers.
DisableDefaultOptimize – Disable the default optimization values for preload and active optimization.
DisablePredictPreload – Disable preloads for performance optimization.
EnableDynamicPreloadOptimisers – Encode all performance optimizer settings for dynamic preload, and enable all optimizations for performance tuning.
EnablePreloadPredict – Enact the pre Load Optimizer optimization mode to make performance tuning work for all optimizers except the preLoadOptimized Optimizers.
This can reduce the amount of preload tuning needed for the optimizers to perform optimally.
DisableDynamicOptimizeOptimiser – Disable dynamic optimizations for all Optimizers except preloadOptimizePredict.
DisableActiveOptim optimize – Disable Active Optimization optimizations for the performance optimization parameters defined above.
DisablePreload and ActiveOptimize are mutually exclusive OptimizationOptions and will not work together.
The Performance Optimizer OptimizationSettings section describes all the different OptimizationOptimizings, including the performance tuning options, the preloading optimizations, the active optimization optimization, and the dynamic optimization optimizations.
The performance tuning option is the first Optimization option in the Options pane of the CIM Optimization menu.
You configure the performance setting by adding a Value to the OptimizingsSettings value field. The
