IBM MustGather: Read first for WebSphere Intelligent Management



MustGather documents aid in problem determination and save time resolving Problem Management Records

Resolving The Problem

Collecting MustGather data early, even before opening the PMR, helps IBM Support quickly determine if:
  • Symptoms match known problems (rediscovery).
  • There is a non-defect problem that can be identified and resolved.
  • There is a defect that identifies a workaround to reduce severity.
  • Locating root cause can speed development of a code fix.

Gathering general information

Use the collector tool to capture general information for each host machine.
When you run the collector tool, it creates a jar file with the information about that profile that it was run against, please send us the jar file that the collector tool created.
If there is a message about the collector tool being deprecated you can ignore it, do not run ISADC tool, the collector tool should continue after a pause in the script.

Entering "Collector -summary" output into an electronically-opened PMR (SR) eliminates waiting on the phone to provide general information to Level 1 support.

Gathering component specific information
Take a look at the components and the component descriptions in the table below for IBM WebSphere Intelligent Management.
