    In a Disaster recovery scenario - can HEAT keep running without the Analytic Metrics DB?


    Resolution

    HEATSM can run without the Metrics DB, however, the log files for the Metrics server will start to grow rapidly.

    In a situation where this DB is unavailable for an extended period of time (such as disaster recovery scenarios) best practice would be to run through the SCW again and disable the Metrics server until the DB is available again.
