C.2 Performance Caveats

Due to the number of objects, amount of data to scan, and your configuration, the GSR Collector can be resource intensive and long running. By default, it will collect data on all objects and accessible shares in Active Directory. This default configuration is not ideal for most Novell Storage Manager deployments. However, the configuration of the GSR Collector allows you to scope it according to your needs. You are encouraged to scope it according to the objects and shares that will be managed by Novell Storage Manager. You should be careful when running the GSR Collector during peak traffic load on the NSM Engine.
