The new 3.4.0 Netcool Connector Feature

    When we were reading the Netcool OMNIbus Connector documentation we were left with more doubts than certainties.

    "A Netcool connector is available for non-production use. You can use this connector to synchronize IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps AI Manager with an existing Netcool/OMNIbus Integrations environment to view event data in the AI ​​Manager Stories and alerts dashboard."

    The link we consulted is

    We are planning to adopt the hybrid model of integrating the on-premises environment with Watson AIOps.

    In the highlighted excerpt, the Netcool Connector must be used for the integration of the On premises Environment with the AI ​​Manager.

    How is the on-premises environment integrated with EventManager? Would it be the same Gateway considered in the hybrid model or the new Netcool Connector?

    Another question is: is the Netcool Connector a two-way connection? Are the alarms correlated by the EventManager synchronized in the on premises environment?

    Another question is about active alarm thresholds that can be handled by EventManager? Traditionally, we work with a limitation of 80k active alarms for each considered ObjectServer.

    In our environment, it is estimated to work with 150k active alarms.

    Can we consider the new Netcool Connector functionality in the integration of the On premises Environment with EventManager and later with the integration of AI Manager?

    Thanks in advance for any help.
