The IBM Tivoli Monitoring Information Center for V6.2.3 Fix Pack 1 has been refreshed to include the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Agent Builder User's Guide V6.2.3 Fix Pack 1.
The Agent Builder User's Guide was updated for the following enhancements:
- You can test data sources in the Agent Builder without the need for a Tivoli
Monitoring infrastructure. The data displayed includes the data that was
collected and actual values for derived attributes. This feature is available
for the following data sources:
For more information,
see Attribute group testing.
- Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
- Windows Performance Monitor (Perfmon)
- Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
- Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) event sender
- Java Management Extensions (JMX)
- Common Information Model (CIM)
- Log file
- Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)
- Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) ping
- Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Availability
- Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)
- Transmission Control Protocol socket (TCP) socket
- Java Application Programming Interface (API)
- When you add an attribute using the Add data source wizard, you have an
option to add additional attributes before you exit the wizard. For more
information, see Creating attributes.
- When you create an agent to monitor script output, you can specify
separators on a per attribute basis to do the following tasks:
more information, see Script parsing and separators.
- Separate one attribute from another with a custom separator that you define
- Extract a fixed number of bytes from the script output
- Delimit an attribute value with a string at the beginning and end of the
- Return the remainder of a line of text as the attribute value
- You can now filter the data rows that are returned from attribute groups
that return sampled data. You use the formula editor to create and apply filters
to determine when to return a data row. For more information, see Filtering attribute groups.
- You can build a new data source by filtering on the data rows of existing
attribute groups that return sampled data. You use the formula editor to create
and apply filters to the existing attribute group. The result is a new attribute
group that contains data rows filtered from the existing attribute group. For
more information, see Filtered Attribute Groups.
- For information about how to configure and tune the data collection
properties of your agents, see Configuring and Tuning data collection.
- By default, only a single copy of scripts, command files or supplemental
files is embedded in the agent. These files in existing Agent Builder projects
can also be consolidated. For more information, see File Separation & Consolidation.
