Is clustering supported for the database? I would share the SQL server used for SCOM 2007, which is clustered.
What is the support lifecycle for the application? i.e. if we install 9.5 today, until when would we get patches and updates (assuming the client doesn't upgrade every year). Also, when a service pack comes out, do we still get support if we didnt install it?
We release NPM about twice a year, and we release service packs between those releases, maybe one every month or so.
Maintenance entitles you to all SPs and all upgrades. We will provide email and phone support on unpatched versions, but if a bug is fixed in a SP, that is likely the only option for fixing that bug.
What is the average SNMP packet size transmitted at each poll? I assume this information is being stored in the database as well so in order to size the storage required for the DB as well as bandwidth requirements, I would need this information.
4k bytes for a node; 2.5 k bytes for an interface.
Thank you very much!
