Topology synchronization is a costly operation on SAM server and it is recommended to configure topology synchronization judiciously. Performance of SAM topology synchronization is dependent on the factors mentioned in Performance factors of SAM topology synchronization.

Table 1. Performance factors of SAM topology synchronization

Performance factor

Dependency of SAM topology synchronization

Size of topology

Time taken to import topology is directly proportional to size of topology.

Frequency of sync

More frequent syncs increase load on SAM server.


Concurrent topology synchronization works better on a multi core machine.

Network latency

Topology import slows down due to network latency.
