System Center 2016 Operations Manager Scalability Improvement in Unix/Linux Agents monitoring

System Center 2016 Operations Manager could now monitor twice as much as Linux/Unix agents per Management Server, against the previously supported scale.

Operations Manager would now use the new Async Windows Management Infrastructure (MI) APIs instead of WSMAN Sync APIs. By default, Operations Manager would use the sync APIs. To get scalability improvement, customers would need to create a new Registry key “UseMIAPI” to enable Operations Manager to use the new Async MI APIs.

 To enable the new Async MI APIs – create a Registry key “UseMIAPI” under HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\\Setup as shown below

 HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\\Setup\UseMIAPI


 Customers can revert back to syncAPI, if needed, by deleting the UseMIAPI registry key.
