Step 1. Verify Service System Configuration

When a service is first added to NetWitness, default values for the system configuration parameters are in effect. You can edit these values to tune performance.


In most cases, the default values for compression, statistics update interval, and number of threads in the thread pool are set at a good point for optimal system performance.

To edit system configuration parameters for a Broker or Concentrator:

  1. Go to netwitness_adminicon_25x22.png (Admin) > Services.
  2. In the Services view, select a Broker or Concentrator, and select netwitness_ic-actns.png > View > Config.

    The Services Config view for the selected service is displayed.


  1. Under System Configuration, click a field that you want to edit, and type a new value.
  2. When finished editing, click Apply.
