Chapter 1. Important Considerations When Tuning IdM

Identity Management’s component services are tuned to work in an optimal way for most deployments. As a System Administrator, you may want to adjust the performance of IdM services to suit the demands of your specific environment.

Important Considerations

  • Each IdM deployment is a unique combination of hardware, software, networking, data, workloads, and many other factors. Adjustments that benefit one environment may be detrimental to another.
  • Performance-tuning is an iterative, experimental process. Red Hat recommends making adjustments to only one variable at a time and monitoring its impact in your environment. After achieving the desired result with one variable, adjust the next variable while continuing to monitor the performance of previous adjustments.
