Topology Considerations for AOM Deployments
Your Siebel applications can be deployed using a variety of topologies, or system layouts. Although AOMs are only a part of the overall deployment, they play a direct and central role in supporting Siebel application users.
You must determine on how many machines you will run Siebel Server, and on how many of these you will run AOM components. In some cases, you may choose to run multiple components on the same Siebel Server.
NOTE: AOM components are typically the major resource consumers for your Siebel Server machines. Tuning considerations discussed in this chapter generally assume that you are not running additional components on an AOM machine that will significantly contend for available resources.
