    Under Monthly activities - none of them are required, outside FRS Prune.
    I'd run prune only of repository diagnostic tool shows inconsistancies. So Repodiag tool run would be the monthly activity for me.

    Weekly - there is normally no need to restart Tomcat and SIA.

    The only required activity is regular synchronized Backup of CMS DB and FRS store.

    Also, monitor /logging directory for size as even with no special tracing enabled it can grow over time too much.

      Hi Suman,

      1. As you have mentioned there are 50 webi reports, so how many webi serves are running for 50 reports?

          we are in cluster environment with 4 Nodes- 8 webi processing servers - 2 in each node

          Most of the time we see in 1 - 2 nodes the webi processing server goes to stopping state.

      2. Each webi server can withstand 50 connections, if it reaches the nearest number(around 50) it goes to stopping mode automatically. In that case how many connections are you able to see in webi server metrics?

          All the WEBI Processing server in all the node are set to 50 for Max connection.

      What is the max limit in the connection, so that we can increase this parameters.
