  4. 4. Clean Up Existing Captiva System • Check for old batches, which can cause problems when updating • Zero priority batches • Task with error status • Locked batches • Old incomplete batches • 7.1 Update process will update the Captiva Database 4 1Reminder: Reveille’s out- of-box tests identify old batches
  5. 5. New Hardware/Operating Systems • Take advantage of 64 bit OS for memory • Update IA server to 64 Bit Windows • Strongly recommended to enhance performance • Enables access to full 32-bit memory space (4 GB) • Update at least some of your module servers to 64 bit Windows OS • Some new IA modules will be strongly recommended to run on 64 bit Windows 5 DO! DO! 2 Remember: 64-bit Windows offers increased performance and security
  6. 6. Establish Performance Baseline • Captiva Server Metrics for existing system • DAL average execution time • DAL average number of data requests • DAL error count • Processing message count • VBA message thread queue length • Database event queue length • WMI Classes for this data • Win32_PerfFormattedData_IA6Dal_IA6Dal • Win32_PerfFormattedData_InputAccel_IA6Server_InputAccel 6 3Did you know? Reveille’s built- in KPIs provide these Captiva Server Metrics
  7. 7. Test/ Prepare for Update • Captiva Database Updates • Create backup copy of current Captiva Database • Run 7.1 database update program against this back up copy and check for any errors • Scripts or Batch files to cleanly shutdown and restart on Captiva modules on all servers • Shutdown Module services first • Shutdown Captiva Server • Apply updates • Start Captiva Servers • Start all module services • Check all modules are connected 7 4 Don’t forget!
