I think every Automate admin has experienced the frustration of how slow the desktop application is. My primary Automate server has ~10,000 agents, and my users were having a horrible experience on a daily basis (they named the agent context menu "the right click of death"). I was sick of the painful user experience and the administration headaches -- so I upgraded to MySQL Enterprise and did a deep dive into how the application interacts with the database. Using the management tools from Oracle I found lots of issues, and after correcting them it's a night-and-day difference (the right click of death is gone!). Each Automate deployment is unique, and there's no hard code-able one-size-fits-all approach. However, I created a plugin that will dynamically gather information from the current configuration and adjust MySQL on the fly to optimally perform for Automate. I published a blog post on my site explaining more of the details: https://automationtheory.org/the-mysql-performance-problem/ I wanted everyone to be able to have a properly setup database without having to buy MySQL Enterprise (or be a DBA on the side), so I created a plugin that does all the dirty work. I plan on releasing this plugin as a monthly subscription, but first I want to do some beta testing to verify results on different Automate deployments (to get a good mix of sizes and types). To get started go to https://automationtheory.org/support/kb/faq.php?id=1 The KB article has a download for the plugin and the setup script, along with instructions. Feel free to reach out with any questions or comments.
Hi We are wondering if Automate or a script could report on a CPU Benchmark/Performance rating. The reason I am asking is that we have meetings with our customers based on their IT equipment, and it would be great if we were able to show them the list of CPU's and their benchmark, so we can identify what PC's need replacing. Currently we manually lookup a CPU Benchmark using PassMark's website - https://www.cpubenchmark.net. However, as we have a larger number of customers, it's too time consuming to manually score each device. BrightGauge is a very useful plug-in that we have, but unfortunately there does not appear to be any filter that is able to report on a CPU Score. I look forward to your suggestions/feedback. Many Thanks. Regards, Danny
