Forcing the Business Layer to load plugins in a separate or 64-bit process in NPM 12

Updated March 17, 2017

Overview

This article provides information about changing the behavior of Business Layer (Module Engine) to load plugins as separate processes, as opposed to a single process (default). This is especially beneficial in large or complex environments.

Environment

Orion Core 2016.1 and later

Resolution

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console. 
  2. Access the Centralized Settings feature by adding the following to the URL:
    /Orion/Admin/AdvancedConfiguration/Global.aspx
    For example: http:/<server_name>:8787/Orion/Admin/AdvancedConfiguration/Global.aspx
  3. Select the Global tab to apply the setting to all servers, or select a specific server.
  4. Scroll down to SolarWinds.BusinessLayerHost.BusinessLayerHostSettings section and locate the ForcePluginsInSeparateProcess setting. Check the box (checked = True (Separate Processes), unchecked = False (Single Process)).
  5. Click Save.
  6. Restart the Orion Module Engine service.
