Services field descriptions
You can use many fields to define services in IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor.
|The number of threads IBM Sterling Control Center
Monitor uses to
poll Connect servers in collecting server statistics. The minimum
and default value is 7.
Note: A good rule of thumb for setting this value is to make it the larger of either 7 or 20% of the total number of managed servers. That is, if the number of servers is less than 35, set Simultaneous Pollers to 7; if the number is 35 or greater, set Simultaneous Pollers to the total number of managed servers times 0.20.
|Check for configuration changes on servers
|How often IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor should check for changes to configuration objects on managed servers. Select Never or specify a time for Run Daily at.
|Minimum number of configuration versions
|The minimum number of configuration versions IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor should retain for each configuration object type.
|Minimum age of configuration versions
|The minimum age of configuration versions that IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor should retain.
|Start certificate expiry notification
|The number of days before expiry of trusted or key certificates when IBM Sterling Control Center
Monitor will begin generating events. The
default is 60 days.
Certificate expiry checking works only for certificates in IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor‘s object repository. To ensure that your certificates are in the repository, you can manually check and add them using Configure Servers > Secure+ > Secure+ Key Certificates or > Secure+ Trusted Certificates. Or, you can automatically check for configuration changes on a daily basis using the Check for Configuration Changes on Servers system setting.
This option is available only for servers that support configuration management.
When a certificate has reached the point when expiry notifications are to be generated, notifications are generated once a day until the certificate's expiration time changes.
To act upon certificate expiry events, or notifications, you can use the Certificate Expiry Warning predefined rule to define the number of days before expiry that action will be taken.
