Alerts maintenance

You can modify alerts that are generated by IBM® Tivoli® Monitoring by changing their status and thresholds.

This transaction is used to enable or disable alerts that are generated by IBM® Tivoli® Monitoring and to set warning and critical thresholds. All alerts that are generated by IBM® Tivoli® Monitoring are shown with their status and threshold values.

When you modify alert status and thresholds, the modified values are used at the next sample time.

Default sample period maintenance

The default sample period provides information about real-time reporting for certain attribute groups.

Some attribute groups have an implicit date and time for each record in the group. For example, the R/3_Abap_Dumps attribute group reports the create time for the dump and the R/3_System_Log attribute group reports the create time for the log entry. These records have a date and time field. You can obtain a report for a short history of the table instead of just the most recent information. This time interval is the time span for data collection and is used as the real-time interval when the data is collected. The /IBMMON/ITM_PERIOD transaction defines a default sample period (time span for real-time reporting) for each of these attribute groups. The sample period identifies the length of the data sample period that starts from the current time and works back in time.

Log file name maintenance

Specific log files that are matched only to instances are included in IBM® Tivoli® Monitoring reports with log file information.

This transaction is used to identify which log files to consider for inclusion in IBM® Tivoli® Monitoring reports that contain log file information. All log files with a name that matches the specified name patterns on the specified instances are included in the report at the next data collection interval.

Managed group maintenance

The Managed Group names transaction monitors and processes specific transactions in the SAP system.

Use this transaction to maintain IBM® Tivoli® Monitoring Managed Group definitions. All Managed Group names are passed to the IBM Cloud Pak console and shown in the Managed System Selection Lists. At the time of data collection, only data that matches the Attribute selection conditions is sent to the SAP agent. This data is shown in reports or used for evaluation in situations and policies.

You use Managed Groups to monitor subsets of information in the SAP system. You focus only on the parts of the SAP system in which you are interested and you ignore other parts that do not concern you. For example, if you are only interested in the response time of transactions that are part of the Financial Application, you create a Managed Group that is named Financials. Then, you include only Financial transaction codes in it. Whenever the Financial Managed Group is processed by the Tivoli Enterprise Portal only information that contains the specified transaction codes is considered when a report is shown, situation or policy is evaluated..
