Error description

  • PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Metrics returned from the data provider to the DASH TWL widgets
    are sometimes not correctly fomatted when the integer is used as
    a percentage value.
    
    RECREATE INSTRUCTIONS:
    The I5OS ITM agent uses a range parameter in their ODI file of
    10000
    
    
    *RANGE: 10000
    
    The ITM data provider uses the range value to populate the
    "valueMax" propertie in the payload sent.
    
    
    This range is calculated by the twl widget via the following
    formula.
    
    
    
    <value>/10000 * 100
    
    
    The end result after scale is applied is an incorrect
    percentage.
    

Local fix

  • Local fix is to change the application ODI file attribute
    definition from a range of 10000 to 1000. Keep in mind that
    changing the ODI may not work for all agent attributes that use
     an integer that needs to be presented as a percentage, it all
    depends on the value returned for that integer column.
    

Problem summary

  • Some attributes incorrectly scaled in the JAZZ/sm UI (DASH). The
     problem was orginally reported by the KI5 agent.  The Jazz/sm
    widgets use the valueMax field for calulation of the scale value
     for integer display.  The IBM Tivoli Monitoring data provider
    was changed to allow for proper formatting on the UI side.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Changed the calculation for the "valueMax" field returned in the
     data provider payload for attributes.
    
    The fix for this APAR is contained in the following maintenance
    packages:
    
      | fix pack | 6.3.0-TIV-ITM-FP0006
