more than 1000 agents with a single server. If you need to install more than 1000
agents, you should install an additional server for those agents to maintain
optimal performance.
3.4.4 Installation port requirements
IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center uses TCP/IP ports for communication, as
shown in Table 3-3. These ports must be opened and available for use.
If there is a firewall between the Agent Manager, the agents, and the resource
managers in your deployment, you must open the ports for TCP traffic as
indicated in the table.

If you want to choose a port other than the default 9510 for Common Agent
communication, make sure that the port you choose, and ports above it, are
available for use. For example, if N represents the open port you want to use,
ensure that ports N+4 and N+5 are open as well.

You can find the port numbers used on your system by running the following
command, netstat -a or netstat -ano (to see the PID using that port, too), as
shown in Figure 3-1 on page 53 and Figure 3-1 on page 53.
Note: To list ports in use, execute the following commands:
򐂰 For Windows:
netstat -an
򐂰 For UNIX and Linux:
netstat -an | grep LISTEN
