Description Adam Grare 2018-05-09 18:30:28 UTC
Currently the VimBrokerWorker uses WaitForUpdates to maintain a cache of inventory and makes it available to be queried by a RefreshWorker while doing an EmsRefresh.

Targeted refreshes are initiated through parsing of Events caught by the EventCatcher and a refresh is queued by an automate method.

This leads to a relatively large turnaround time from something changing on the provider until it is persisted in the database.

It is possible to instead of using events to trigger targeted refreshes to parse the UpdateSet returned by WaitForUpdates and save that to the database.  This reduces the total time to process targeted refreshes.

This is available today as a prototype through settings (prototype/ems_vmware/update_driven_refresh) but is not yet completely at feature parity with existing EmsRefresh.

At this point vmware streaming refresh is ready to test, setting prototype/ems_vmware/update_driven_refresh to true and restarting the appliance will enable streaming refresh for vmware.
