You can use Netcool/Impact to expose data types and policy user output parameters through the UI data provider to populate Tivoli Integrated Portal (TIP) charting portlets. Through the use of Netcool/Impact polices, you can provide additional filtering logic to allow the data populated in the portlets to be in context of other portlets, like the Netcool/OMNIbus Active Event List (AEL). In this scenario we will visualize the archived event data in real-time.
In this example, we have a Netcool/OMNIbus ObjectServer TDW (Tivoli Data Warehouse) gateway which forwards events to an IBM DB2 database for event archiving purposes. We want to setup two new right click menu options:
LaunchEventArchive – When selected, a new page that contains our archived events will be displayed in context to the event that was selected.
UpdateEventArchive – When selected, the charting portlet in the same page will be updated in context to the event which was selected.
This particular scenario has been written and tested with Netcool/Impact 6.1.1, Tivoli Integrated Portal 188.8.131.52, and both Netcool/OMNIbus 184.108.40.206 and Netcool/OMNIbus 7.4.
