Hello, everybody,

I want to start Purview, but Netsight says:

How can I fix it?

May be there is an article in GTAC?

Please, help!

Many thanks in advance,
Ilya

P.S. There is no Analytics in "Related categories"

Ilya, you may want to open a case.
It sounds like the Netsight server is likely running low on resources.
It is best to check the following to start, to make sure you are within these guidlines, especially if running version 8.x

Hi, Volker,

If I just increase memory and disk sizes - would it be enough? Or I should reinstall Netsight anyway?

Now I have Netsight on Windows - and I like it very much. Changing platform is would be very time-consuming job for me.

Hi llya,

There is one way to allocation memory to MYSQL on Netsight.

Netsight Console - How to allocate more memory to MYSQL and Netsight Server
https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/How_To/Netsight-Console-How-to-allocate-more-memo...

But, agree with Mike and Volker to check your hardware requirements.


Best regards,

I have done as you'd said and it helped me. But I've got the other problem - Purview appliance is on and "green" in Devices, but it says: "Sensor is down"

The data are flowing to Netsight.

Additionally, we had serveral installations of former versions of XMC on windows, an we liked it too. But with the V8 ongoing the performance is bad (you can see it in the chart, windows is supported only for small) and the flexibility for troubleshooting is between awful and not existent....
So we moved ALL installations to V8 and virtual appliance based on linux.

Have no fear if you are not an expert in linux, this works out of of the box extremely smooth !

Well... every next Netsight release is a pain...) I 100% sure I will get troubles restoring Nesight config from Windows to Linux. There are V2110, 100+ APs, 100+ switches, NAC...

Are there any other ways without REINSTALLATION of Netsight? Could I just increase CPU-DISK-Memory options for virtual machine?

Many thanks to you!

Why don ́t you try it parallel ?
Just export Netsight database and import in the Linux appliance ? You don ́t need to install it. Copy the VM-Appliance (ovf-file) ore HyperV-appliance and start it. Configure the basics on the startmenue and import DB - that`s it. I takes not more than 15min ...

Why should be every next release a pain ?
- With 8.1 and every future release we will have a bunch of new exciting functions...
- Update process on linux is very easy
- you save a windows license and a lot of ressources
- we run 80k users and 2000+ switches with one XMC

Any other concerns ?
