One of my aims in this blog is to update it frequently. With that in mind, I'll set a goal of updating at least once a week.The easiest way of guaranteeing that is having a simple theme for a series of posts.
I'll start off by listing a number of technotes that have caught my eye over the week for various reasons. These will not necessarily be new ones or even ones that I've recently used, rather they'll be ones that I've read and thought worthwhile sharing during the week.
So, here we go with the first set of technotes:
- ITM Example Perl/SOAP - Agent Survey - http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21572396
This note, created by John Alvord , will present you with a list of problems with the ITM environment:
- Agent not running situations as configured
- Remote TEMS not responsive
- Agent not responsive
- Excessive start/stop situation messages
- Agent maximum uptime
- Agent time Skew
- Situation Start Delay
- Agent Connect Rate
- Agent Down Level Maintenance
- Agent Switching IZ76410
- TEMA Down Level
- Persistent Situation Error
It's an excellent example of how to access internal information.
- TEP showing bad labels for custom agent navigator items - http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21407280
It's common enough to forget to load the agent support files on a Linux/Unix installation when you're used to Windows. Then you see the ugly Kxx:Kxx10110 labels instead of English.
However, this week, not only did I see the ugly labels, the Situation Event Console was nowhere to be seen in the Portal! The enterprise workspace existed, there were no errors but the SEC was invisible and there was no icon to add it to a workspace. Reconfiguring the TEPS fixed both problems.
- Limitations on Historical Data Collection of TEMS CCC Logs - https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21445980
The CCC Logs in ITM should, theoretically, enable logging of situation history in the Tivoli data-warehouse. Unfortunately, it's not that simple and the technote explains a little why.
I think that's enough for a first post...
