Data collection considerations for HP IVM systems

In order to collect configuration and performance data for HP Integrity VM (HP IVM) systems, BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization data collector should be installed on the host that is running HP IVM. All the configuration and statistical groups that are collected on a regular HP-UX system are collected for an IVM host system. In addition, the collector collects configuration metrics about all the virtual machines that are running on the host. Collectors can be installed on the IVM virtual machines as well. The data collected from the virtual machines will be populated and available in the database tables. 

Listed below are some data collection considerations for this environment:

  • BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization data collector should be installed on the host that is running HP IVM.
  • All the configuration and statistical groups that are collected on a regular HP-UX system are collected for an IVM host system.
  • In addition, the collector collects configuration metrics about all the virtual machines that are running on the host.
  • Collectors can be installed on the IVM virtual machines as well. The data collected from the virtual machines will be populated and available in the database tables. No attempt is made to correlate metrics collected from inside the virtual machine to that collected from the host OS.
  • For IVM running within HP nPar systems, the collector should be installed on the partition hosting the Integrity virtual machines.
