    Hi,
    did someone try this new 6.3 feature?!
    I upgraded my Windows test client to 6.3.0 and I put the PERFMON* options into the dsm.opt file, I previously upgraded (actually removed the old one and fresh installed TIP/AC 6.3) but I did nothing on the server side (6.2.3.0 on AIX system), does someone know if I have to upgrade even the server to 6.3?
    Actually I "selective" backed up twice a 90MB directory but nothing appeared on the AC (TSM -> Reporting -> Client Performance Monitor).
    Any hint will be appreciated :)

    Ciao.

    Hi Rigido!
    There are no need to upgrade server to v6.3.
    This feature works only with API(any Data Protection).
    You need to add perfmontcpaddress and so on to DP options file.

    Check on AC server perfmon port(default 5129) and perfmon availability(does perfmon is started).
    I believe this helps u :)

    I think this is all I needed to know.
    I really hoped that just installing (not using) API was enough, so even standard BA client could send performance data.

    Thank you!

    TSM Administration Center 6.3 must be installed. The TSM for Databases/Mail 6.3.X must be installed and the dsm.opt file for that must have the following options configured:
    PERFMONTCPSERVERADDRESS xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    PERFMONTCPPORT 5129 (Documentation for Admin Center says 5130, but listens on 5129)
    PERFMONCOMMTIMEOUT 30

    Worked great for me once I found the port issues and corrected the client.

    Hope this helps!
