Configuring the command interface

To configure the HTTP/HTTPS command interface, set the following properties in the probe's property file:

  • NHttpd.EnableHTTP: Set this property to True.
  • NHttpd.ListeningPort: Set this property to the number of the port that the probe uses to listen for HTTP commands.

Optionally, set a value for the following property as required:

  • NHttpd.ExpireTimeout: Set this property to the maximum time (in seconds) that the HTTP connection remains idle before it is disconnected.

The IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Probe and Gateway Guide contains a full description of these and all properties for the HTTP/HTTPS command interface.
