Whenever the engineer installs the PA domains on an ITM environment - there are few default domains analytical tasks that gets installed.
When I mean "domain" - I mean the agents that the PA supports. There are currently 6 domains that ITPA supports -like OS agent., DB2, VMware, Oracle, ITCAM, and System P.
These default tasks can be viewed when the user clicks on the Performance Analyzer Configuration icon on the TEPS GUI.
A new popup appears listing all the tasks and the default analytical tasks for each domain.
Snapshot below shows the various domains in the Performance Analyzer Configuration Panel.
The first is the ITCAM RT, and you see some other tasks that are not listed with their correct domain names - this happens if the domain is not installed.
In this lab environment - I have the ITCAM, OS agents ( i.e the Linux, Unix and Windows), VMware, agents and the application support installed -hence they are showing up right.
Now, the Performance Analyzer user -would like to add some new tasks other than the one that is shipped out-of-the-box.
Snapshot below: is from the Linux default analytical tasks, and here let's say the user would like to add some new tasks.
The Linux Analytical tasks are shown in enlarged mode on the left.
User can either add a new task - or right click on one of the existing default tasks and clone it.
In this example - I am going to right click on Available Memory (Linux ) forecast and create a similar task with some modifications. I'd change the title so that it looks different from the existing "Available Memory". ( see snap below )
( User has to enable the task as it gets installed as inactive when created - By clicking on the Active )
Now, we have a new task in the tasks table.
Let's say - the user wants to clean up these new manually created tasks later. Then the user would go to the MTEMS (Manage TEMS) GUI ( <ITMHOME>/itmcmd manage )and then reconfigure the Performance Analyzer.
Or manually run the command:
itmcmd config -A pa
During the reconfiguration - one of the questions that is posed is the "Initialize PA Tables".
Change this to YES, and a popup will appear stating that the default analytical tasks will be restored ot outof box and newly created tasks will be cleaned up.
This should clean up any manually created tasks.
