To cut a long story short our CSA was 'accidentally' decommissioned several months ago and today I have created a new vCSA with the same settings as the one that was previously running.
I haven't yet dealt with the client certificates yet but I am a little worried about the amount of data I am seeing hitting the new vCSA since it came online. The Gateway Service Status is showing almost 50000 'Total connections serviced' since it was last restarted less than 3 hours ago.
I have looked at the 'CSA Connection Table' report and I see a fair amount of connections from devices that are no longer listed in the LDMS inventory (and do not physically exist any more) and others from devices that are in the inventory list. For example:
The vast majority of the have the UserAgent set as LANDESK Remote Agent/8.6 or (mostly) LANDESK Remote Agent/9.5 as shown above.
I also see a large amount of records going through the connection tablet such as this which I am not sure about:
There are a few things that are worrying me:
1. Why is the 'Connections Serviced" number so high when I believe there should be no where near this number of devices going through the CSA. The devices that I am seeing in the connection log that are in the inventory list should be connecting directly to the Core server and not going through the vCSA, What could be causing devices to be going through the vCSA when, in theory, they should just be connecting directly to the core server?
2. Why are there records appearing in the 'CSA Connection Table' report for devices that don't exist in the inventory list and do not physically exist any more?
3. What are the 'Broker Service Requests' that are seemingly coming from (or going to) our core LDMS server?
Our LDMS system is v9.6 with SP3 applied and the vCSA is 4.3 with the latest available (as of today) updates applied.
Thanks for any info anyone can share on this and for letting me whether I am panicking for no reason(s)?
