Periodically, we are making fully tested and supported feature updates available for our Tivoli Common Reporting users. The latest updates, now available in Interim Fix 11, consist of a wireless core software patch and an updated version of Model Maker IBM Cognos Edition, version 1.1.5. Wireline customers
can install and use Model Maker IBM Cognos Edition 1.1.5, however, it offers
no new functionality for wireline customers.
When you install these two updates, you get the following features and improvements.
- Formula Storage
- When the wireless patch in Interim Fix 11 is applied to the Tivoli
Netcool Performance Manager - Wireless Component, summary data can
be stored at raw and hourly intervals, in addition to the previously
supported daily, weekly, and monthly intervals. This information is
stored in the database, and is available for Tivoli Common Reporting or to
be directly extracted from the database. Model Maker IBM Cognos Edition
users can use this new functionality to store formula calculations
based on raw and hourly summary data. The additional intervals are
not supported in the Tivoli Netcool Performance
Manager - Wireless Component Web GUI, which continues to support daily,
weekly, and monthly summary intervals only.
- Filtering technology pack metrics by metric groups when creating
- By default, all of the performance metrics for a particular technology
pack are extracted and included in a data model for reporting. Filtering
the metrics that are included in each data model by metric group can
offer much improved performance, and a targeted set of metrics for
particular reporting requirements. In Model Maker Extractor, you can
now filter the default metrics to ensure that only the metrics that you
need to report on are deployed. You can create a filter file, and then
apply the filter after you have extracted the required raw metrics,
busy hours, or summaries from the technology pack or Tivoli Netcool Performance Manager system.
- Filtering summaries by summary intervals when creating summary
- By default, summaries for all summary intervals are extracted
from the database. In Model Maker Extractor, you can now filter on
daily, weekly, and monthly intervals to create a smaller and more
targeted model for improved performance.
- Performance Enhancements
- Model Maker Generator and Model Maker Manager both include significant
performance enhancements for the process of creating common pack data
