IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version

Port Consolidator reference and configuration - WAS agent

The Port Consolidator is used to reduce network resources. It is used on the data collector to limit the number of ports used by the data collector when communicating with the Managing Server. The Port Consolidator only consolidates the traffic in one direction: from the Managing Server to the data collector. All traffic from the Managing Server to the data collector will be routed through the Port Consolidator. However, the traffic from the data collector to the Managing Server is direct.

Typically, all data collectors and Port Consolidators are installed on the same physical computer. However, it is possible to run the Port Consolidator on a different computer. Contact IBM Software Support for setup assistance in this case.
