Configuring in the PATROL consoles

This section provides instructions for configuring PATROL for iSeries components. The PATROL for iSeries KM needs no special configuration before it begins collecting data after you load it. However, there are a few configuration options that you might want to set up, depending on the needs of your environment.

    None of the steps describes the procedure to enable remote monitroing from CMA. at end we are looking for a document to configure remote monitoring on Active Jobs, History log search criteria etc. Pleasse update the document with required information.

        Thanks Shweta. I ahve gone through all the documents. I enabled monitoring on iSeries remotely using a CMA policy and I'm able to see iSeries servers in PCO server. However my requirement is to setup monitoring like how it worked in earlier version.

        To describe more, earlier we have patrol agent for iseries 3.6.8 and it monitored through PCM/PCO. In this version monitroing enabled like below.

        1. X number of active jobs configured for this agent and for each job we could see CPU, IO, max/min status code etc
        2. if userid XXXXX logged-on/logged-off from server, an alert and ticket is raised with the summary “Out-of-range Alarm of global parameter "Nbr_Match_Msgs" triggered on "OS400_QHSTID.CPF1124_QSECOFR_Start". 2.00 > 0”

        In similar way many confgurations done for Active Jobs, QHST etc on old KM. I would like to see the similar configurations in new iSeries 4.2.2 version. Is there any way to import/export configurations from ols KM to new KM? or else do we have any procedure to create a CMS policy to define configurations as same as old?

        Note that we are using CMA not Truesight.

          No we can not import from old km and export it to new one as both km works very differently. from 4.x version onward we are monitoring iSeries machine remotely.

          We do monitor X number of active jobs by 4.x version as well.

          please see configuration attached,in which all jobs with QBATCH name will be monitored and if you select option marked in red then instances of those jobs also created. each instance have their cpu, i/o, status etc..

          you can configure multiple groups for different different jobs.
