Adobe ad0-e117 practice test

Adobe Experience Manager Architect Master Exam

Question 1

An existing AEM sites platform will receive the latest service pack. The service pack includes
functional and non-functional fixes such as security patches. Which action should the Architect take
to make sure the update is successful?

  • A. Advise the customer to request Adobe to install the fixes directly on production since they are prechecked.
  • B. Install the service pack m staging and ensure that all the bundles are up and running, then deploy to production.
  • C. Identify the packages affected by the service pack after installing them into production and monitor them.
  • D. Do a full staging of the service pack including a regression test, if passed, deploy to production.



Question 2

A customer wants to simplify and automate publishing press pages and defines the following flows:

What should the Architect recommend?

  • A. Create a custom workflow
  • B. Advise the customer to use Launches
  • C. Implement a Sling event listener that triggers on page creation
  • D. Configure MSM with the "Activate on Blueprint activation" option



Question 3

A client using AEM 6.5 on-premise is experiencing an unsustainable repository growth of 100Gb a
day. After investigation, an Architect finds out that the DAM is causing this issue. Each image
uploaded to the DAM triggers the creation of approximately 100 renditions, necessary by business to
consume in different channels and systems. The client also complains about stale content reported
by site visitors happening randomly in pages where article-related components are present.
How should the Architect address these issues?

  • A. Leverage AEM Adaptive Image Servlet, cache image variations in Dispatcher, and reimplement article-related components to use AJAX to load the content
  • B. Split WCM and DAM in separate instances, set up Connected Assets, and re-implement article- related components to use AJAX to load the content
  • C. Leverage AEM Adaptive Image Servlet cache image variations in Dispatcher, and implement a cache TTL in Dispatcher
  • D. Split WCM and DAM in separate instances, set up Connected Assets, and implement a workflow to purge all pages affected by an article change in Dispatcher



Question 4

During development the AEM Publisher server keeps crashing randomly. The deployment included a
new static FAQ component that was used in the websites Contact Us page. An Architect investigates
to find the root cause for the random failures, and notices the following parameters:
The server slows down when requests are sent to the Contact us page
The number of requests to the page were very few
Heap dump shows a large number of instances of the FAQ component
What is likely causing this issue?

  • A. The page was not cached in the Dispatcher.
  • B. The component triggers a traversal query.
  • C. The JVM garbage collection is not running.
  • D. The component has a cyclic dependency to itself



Question 5

An AEM Architect is moving existing content from an on-premise AEM to an AEM Cloud Service
instance using the Content Transfer Tool. As part of the initial source preparation, the Architect is
going to run the offline compaction on the on-premise AEM.
What other two actions should the Architect do to the on-premise AEM before proceeding with the
extraction phase? (Choose two.)

  • A. Validate that all replication agents are disabled
  • B. Verify that wipe mode is enabled
  • C. Stop all bundles using the AEM Web Console
  • D. Verify that free disk space is at least 1.5x the JCR size
  • E. Run datastore consistency check via oak-run

B, D


Question 6

Refer to the exhibit.

A customer with an existing AEM implementation wants to enrich product pages with technical data
coming from their PIM system. The PIM system sits behind an API Management solution that
publicly exposes the PIM API's as RESTful web services with basic authentication as the security
mechanism. Data consistency with the PIM and secure access to the APIs are key elements of the
How should the Architect set up the integration between AEM and the PIM?

  • A. Integrate the AEM Publishers directly with the API Management solution
  • B. Use a client-side integration with AJAX from the browser to the API Management
  • C. Import the technical data into the AEM Author and replicate to Publishers
  • D. Convert the technical data to Content Fragments and expose using Content Services



Question 7

A client has an existing AEM site using components that proxy AEM WCM Core Components. The site
uses simple page authoring without referenced content, The client wants to create a new experience
on another marketing channel. The plan is to use as much of the existing page content as possible to
avoid refactoring the current content and to maintain consistency across channels.
Which AEM capability should an Architect use to meet these requirements?

  • A. Experience Fragments
  • B. Content Fragments
  • C. Assets API
  • D. Sling Model Exporter



Question 8

During an optimization session, a client using AEM 6.5 mentions that they face challenges with their
AEM Author setup. The client has significant repository growth and can see an increased amount of
TAR files in the segmentstore on disk. When editors are working, they see that workflows take up
more time. The purging of workflows works as expected. Which two optimizations should an
Architect suggest to took into and further investigate? (Choose two.)

  • A. Leverage workflow offloading for all workflows
  • B. Configure the Maximum Parallel Jobs
  • C. Increase the maxFileSize of the TAR segmentstore
  • D. Leverage Transient Workflows where possible
  • E. Execute an offline tar compaction twice a day

B, D


Question 9

A customer wants to implement an AEM solution to serve localized content to several regional
websites. Which AEM capability should the Architect recommend?

  • A. Use translation connector and Multi Site Manager
  • B. Use il8N API and Multi Site Manager
  • C. Use translation connector and il8N API
  • D. Use translation connector and translation workflows



Question 10

A company is implementing a new e-commerce site that is expected to get seasonal and flash-sale
induced traffic peaks from all over the world. It is projected that a minute of downtime could cause
excessive lost revenue. The company management wants to keep resource utilization to optimal
levels without experiencing degradation to avoid introducing bugs in the system.
The Architect needs to choose between AEM 6.5 and AEM as Cloud Service.
What are the two most critical non-functional requirements the Architect must consider? (Choose

  • A. Scalability
  • B. Availability
  • C. Reliability
