IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 18.104.22.168
Where to install IBM Support Assistant and Memory Dump Diagnostic for Java
The following section describes two common configurations:
- Install ISA and MDD for Java on a standalone server that is not running an application server. After the heap dump has been collected on the application server, it must be transferred to the MDD for Java computer for post-processing.
This configuration is recommended for production environments where you do not want the post-processing of the dump to impact the performance of the application server.
- Install ISA and MDD for Java on each application server host computer, so that you can analyze the heap dump locally without having to transfer it.
This configuration might be suitable for a development or test environment where the overhead of analyzing the heap dump is not a concern.
The decision on where to install might also be influenced by the platforms supported by ISA.
