How to Monitor Multiple Cisco Prime Infrastructure Instances
There are three situations in which you will want to use multiple Cisco Prime Infrastructure server instances to manage your network:
- You want to categorize the devices in your network into logical groups, with a different Cisco Prime Infrastructure instance managing each of those groups. For example, you could have one instance managing all of your network’s wired devices and another managing all of its wireless devices.
- The one Cisco Prime Infrastructure instance you have running is sufficient to manage your network, but the addition of one or more instances would improve Cisco Prime Infrastructure performance by spreading the CPU and memory load among multiple instances.
- Your network has sites located throughout the world, and you want a different Cisco Prime Infrastructure instance to manage each of those sites in order to keep their data separate.
If multiple Cisco Prime Infrastructure instances are running in your network, you can monitor those instances from the Operations Center. In this chapter, we will cover a typical workflow you might employ when using the Operations Center. This workflow consists of the following tasks:
- Use the Operations Center Config Dashboard to Manage Multiple Cisco Prime Infrastructure Servers
- Run Reports on Deployments with Multiple Cisco Prime Infrastructure Servers Using Operations Center
