Problem summary

  • Display Item with value of -1 displays in Tivoli Enterprise
    Portal client as 4294967295.
    In the case of a situation definition that includes a Display
    Item, where said Display Item is a 4 byte integer type
    containing a negative value,
    the Display Item value will be incorrect in the Situation Event
    Console and the portal client Message Log; it will also be
    incorrect in the message recorded in the
    Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring server Operation (MSG2) log.  This
    incorrect Display Item value only manifests on some operating
    system platforms, notably on Linux 64 bit platform.
    
    Note, this defect only affects Display Item form of a monitored
    attribute;  it does not affect the attribute's value in context
    of situation's formula (predicate)
    evaluation
    

Problem conclusion

  • Changes were made to the logic to correctly convert negative
    valued Display Item.
