1.0.00 features

This section contains information about the features in version 1.0.00 of the PATROL for Composite Attributes product.

Create user-defined metrics using the agent-level composite monitor

PATROL for Composite Attributes enables you to create user-defined metrics.   

  • Composition using Logical condition

The KM allows you to create monitors by using multiple attributes of same or different monitors running on a PATROL Agent using logical, relational, and arithmetic operators that evaluate to either True or False.

A logical expression supports the following operators:

    • Logical operators: && and  ||
    • Relational operators: ==, !=, >,>=, <, and <=
  • Composition using Arithmetic operators

The KM allows you to create monitors by using arithmetic operators of same or different monitors running on a PATROL Agent.

An arithmetic expression supports the following operators: 

    • Arithmetic operators: +, -, *, and /

Create custom parent instance hierarchy

This feature allows you to decide the parent of any newly created composite instance. You can specify any existing instance on the PATROL Agent that is used as a parent for the created composite instances. By default, the Composite instances are created under the Composite container. 

Documentation redesign

The redesigned monitor type and attribute documentation helps you find information about all the metrics of the monitored resource on the respective monitor type page. For example, if you are monitoring Composite Logical and want to view all the metrics related to it, you can see them all here: Composite Logical.

Additional features

  • User-defined instance and attribute name - When you configure a policy in PATROL for Composite Attributes, the KM gives you the flexibility to define an instance and attribute name. For more information, see Configuring the Composite Agent Level monitor in TrueSight
    Instance Name -  This allows you to define a unique display name that is used to identify a Composite instance.
    Attribute Name - This name is used to represent the attribute in TrueSight.
  • Configurable polling interval - This feature gives the flexibility to define the polling interval for each of the composite instances. By default, the polling interval is set to 5 minutes.
  • Conditional alert for logical expression - This feature allows you to set the alert based on the result of the logical expression. For example: You can set the alert type to Critical for an expression that evaluates to False, and you can set the alert type to Warning for an expression that evaluates to True.
  • Performance scalability and reliability - In PATROL for Composite Attributes, you can create multiple expressions. For more information, see Performance Scalability and Reliability data.
