How To Enable NetSuite Application Performance Monitor (APM) – Concurrency Monitor

Why Do I Need This?

With the latest release 2018.1 NetSuite started enforcing the concurrence for some customers but by 2018.2 NetSuite started enforcing the concurrence on all customers.

What Does This Mean?

  • Integrations (REST/WebService) that connect to NetSuite database to grab data will use a default limit of 5 concurrent (simultaneous) connections.
  • This number is shared for all integrations within your NetSuite System/Node.
  • If you have one integration that needs 2 concurrent connections, there will be 3 concurrent connections left for other integrations until the first two are closed.
  • If you have too many integrations running you will get an error on one or more integrations stating, you have exceeded the allotted 5 concurrent connections.

What Can Be Done?

  • Monitor your integrations with NetSuite Concurrency Monitor
  • Schedule integrations to run when other integrations are not running
  • Write/Rewrite your integrations to not need as many connections
  • Purchase SuiteCloud Plus (SCP) License to increase your limit

NetSuite Application Performance Monitor (APM) – Concurrency Monitor

  • The monitor dashboard allows you to view and plan the scheduling of your integrations.
    • The dashboard will outline your connections
      • Average Concurrency
      • Peak Concurrency
      • Total Exceeded Concurrency
      • Highest Exceeded Concurrency
      • Concurrency Limit
    • Within this tool you will see days and times that integrations run to help you to better schedule when integrations should run.
  • This monitor can be a beneficial tool to determine if you need to get the SCP license.

Bundle Install

  • Log into NetSuite as an administrator or a role that allows you to search/install bundles
  • Using the "Customization" menu, find "SuiteBuilder" then click on "Search & Install Bundles"

Use "67350" or keyword "APM" to search for the bundle

  • Click on "Application Performance Management"
  • Click on the "Install" button, you will get a prompt like below.
  • After you click on the "OK" button of this prompt you will get a NetSuite legal disclaimer to read and agree/disagree to. (If you disagree you will not be able to install the bundle)
  • A copy of this NetSuite legal disclaimer is attached below. (NOTE: The live document may change at any time, this is just a copy as of the date of this post.)
  • Please read the live document before you agree to it

Use Concurrency Monitor

  • Once the bundle is installed you can get to the monitor using the "Customization" menu, find "Performance" then click on "Concurrency Monitor"
  • If you look at the examples below they show a time line of when scripts have ran.
    • First image is all ETLs within the limit
    • Second image is all ETLs exceeding the limit

SuiteCloud Plus License

  • By default, all accounts have a concurrent connection limit of 5, with this license your limit increases to 15.
  • If needed you can purchase additional SuiteCloud Plus licenses to increase your concurrency in increments of 15 though the monitor of your integrations should be attempted first.
