Hi Marije, Starting with Pega 7.2, D-Nodes provide the infrastructure for business monitoring (Visual Business Director). For more information on Dnode refer https://pdn.pega.com/documents/decision-strategy-manager-d-node-operations-guide Upgrade guide: https://pdn.pega.com/documents/decision-strategy-manager-upgrade-guide Obsolete Resources • Interaction Services JDBC data source • Visual Business Director JDBC data source • ResponseDispatcherWM work manager • Interaction Services application • Visual Business Director application • Extra GridGain nodes Kindly refer the upgrade guide, section Key Performance Indicators Starting with Pega 7.1, Key performance indicators replace VBD metrics.There is no automated process to migrate metrics to KPIs, you have to identify the metrics and redefine them as KPIs. Let me know if this answers your query
VBD in 7.2 no longer has any dependency on VBD-specific tables, so there is no need for an option to install something outside of PegaDATA. The data that used to be stored in these tables was moved to Cassandra. I should add that when using VBD with IH, VBD in 7.2 supports single or split schema. VBD does not currently support monitoring IH data when it lives outside of the PegaDATA.
