Overview
Dell Compellent Enterprise Manager ETL for BMC Capacity Optimization
Version 3.0.00
Dell Compellent Enterprise Manager ETL for BMC Capacity Optimization is a connector specifically
designed for BMC Capacity Optimization and can be defined as an ETL Service, named Sentry
Software Integration for BCO - Dell Compellent Enterprise Manager Extractor Service, that
continuously polls and collects data from Dell Compellent Enterprise Manager. Once an ETL Service is
started, it runs continuously on BMC Capacity Optimization. Once properly configured, the Dell
Compellent Enterprise Manager Extractor Service task collects all of the metric required for
performing critical capacity optimization tasks, such as: analysis, trending, simulation and analytic
modeling.

Dell Compellent Enterprise Manager ETL for BMC Capacity Optimization
Version 3.0.00
Dell Compellent Enterprise
Manager
Dell Compellent Enterprise Manager allows you to monitor, manage, and analyze Storage Centers
from a centralized management console. It consists of the following components:
Data Collector: Data Collector is a service that gathers reporting data and alerts from all
Storage Centers. There are two types of Data Collectors: Primary and Remote. All installations
must include one primary Data Collector. Each Data Collector service (primary or remote) is
managed using a Data Collector Manager.
Database: Data Collector stores data in a database or flat file. The database can run on the
same or a different platform from Data Collector.
Enterprise Manager Clients: An Enterprise Manager Client connects to the Data Collector
Service to provide a centralized management console for one or more Storage Centers.
Additional clients can be connected to the same Data Collector Service to provide management
from more than one location.
Server Agents: By installing a Server Agent for Microsoft Windows on each Windows server
using a Storage Center, Data Collector can gather local volume information from a Windows
server. Using this information, Enterprise Manager can free volume storage space from expired
Replays that would otherwise remain locked by Windows. Each Server Agent is managed by a
Server Agent Manager.
This guide describes how to install and configure Enterprise Manager components. For more
information, please refer to the Dell Compellent Enterprise Manager documentation.
Requirements
Dell Compellent Enterprise Manager requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6 or higher (1.6
Update 30 or higher recommended). On 64-bit systems both the 32-bit and the 64-bit JRE are
required
