Configuring Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) monitoring

You must configure the Cisco UCS agent to monitor the health, network, and performance of Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS).

Before you begin

About this task

The Cisco UCS agent is a multiple instance agent. You must create the first instance, and start the agent manually. The directions here are for the most current release of this agent. For more information about how to check the version of an agent in your environment, see Using agent commands.

The configuration attributes define which Cisco UCS infrastructure is monitored. The attributes define a connection to Cisco UCSM 1.4, or later. You can configure more than one instances of the monitoring agent on a remote monitoring host system. You can also create separate instances to monitor specific Cisco UCS infrastructure.

After the Cisco UCS agent is installed, you can start the agent. However, you must manually configure the agent to view data for all the agent attributes.
