Before you begin, you need to ensure you have a valid:
Software key (Used to activate the Opsview Monitor software)
Repository key (Used to access the Opsview Monitor repositories)
A valid subscription will provide you with both a Software and Repository Key when you subscribe to Opsview Atom or make an Enterprise or Pro purchase, or you subscribe to an active Opsview Monitor 30-day Trial.
Please note, the Opsview Monitor server will be taken offline during the upgrade.
Opsview Monitor's dashboard capability may potentially expand the quantity of Application Programming Interface (API) calls made to the Opsview Monitor system and, in turn, increase the overall load. We recommend that you undertake the steps in the following list before upgrading your system.
• Baseline the performance of your Opsview Monitor master server and your database, if it is separate from the master, to establish how well it is currently performing; • Review the hardware requirements and pay particular attention to the system memory requirements; see Section 3.1 Prerequisites; • You will need to establish if the dashboard will only be used by existing Opsview Monitor Users or if it will be rolled out to new Users. Naturally, increasing the number of Users who use your system will increase system load, which may have an impact on the overall performance.
