Administering Optimization Engines

An optimization engine is an instance of an analytic server.

You can use the Analytic Server Administration – Analytic Domain Summary page to administer all optimization engines. To access the Analytic Server Administration – Analytic Domain Summary page from PIA, select PeopleTools > Utilities > Administration > Analytic Server Administration.

See PeopleSoft Optimization Framework System Architecture.

Before you can use lights-out mode and other optimization features, you must first configure PeopleSoft Integration Broker for basic messaging.

The only PeopleSoft Integration Broker elements that are specific to optimization engine administration are two transactions delivered with your PeopleSoft application. One transaction is type InSync, the other is type OutSync, and both use the OPT_CALL message. Ensure that they are both active on the Transactions page of the default local node definition.
