Configuring rate events to a user-configured cell

Rate events like ALARM and ABNORMALITIES are generated by the Rate process that can be configured to be processed in a custom cell instead of the default Infrastructure Management server cell. Do the following to configure the rate events to be processed in a custom cell:

To configure a cell to send rate events to a user-configured cell instead of the default cell

Perform the following sequence of steps to create and configure a cell to send rate events to a user-configured cell instead of the default cell (Infrastructure Management cell).

  1. Create a new cell by running the mcrtcell command. Consider this as a rate cell. For more information about mcrtcell command, see mcrtcell.
  2. Perform the following sequence of steps to update the configuration files in this rate cell.
    1. Using a text editor, open the mcell.conf file located in the pw\server\etc\<cell> directory location and update the POMEnabled property as shown in the following code block: 

      POMEnabled=No

      Note

      Replace <cell> with the rate cell name in the preceding directory location that is pw\server\etc\<cell>.

    2. Copy the mcell.propagate file from the pw\server\etc directory to pw\server\etc\<cell>
    3. Edit the mcell.propagate file located in the pw\server\etc\<cell> directory location as shown in the following code block: 

      mc_parameter_threshold=f

      mc_tool_key=f

    4. Restart the rate cell.

  3. Update the refine_multiple_server_events.mrl file located in the pw\server\etc\<cell>\kb\rules directory location of the default cell that is Infrastructure Management (JServer) cell. Comment out the code lines as shown in the following example: 

    #refine initialize_ppm_ev:
    #PPM_EV ($EV)
    #{
    #if (listlen($EV.mc_history) != 0) then
    #{
    #$EV.pn_object_id = 0;
    #$EV.pn_object_class_id = 0;
    #$EV.pn_parameter_id = 0;
    #opadd($EV, "Initialized PPM_EV slots specific to CI association", "");
    #};
    #}
    #END


  4. Recompile the Knowledge Base of the default cell that is Infrastructure Management cell.

  5. Update the rate cell details in the pronet.conf file located in the pw\custom\conf directory location of the Infrastructure Management cell as shown in the following code block: 

    pronet.rate.cell.cellName=<rate cell name>

  6. Update the mcell.dir file located in the pw\server\etc\<cell> directory location of the rate cell as shown in the following code block: 

    #Syntax

    cell <default cell name> key <host name> <port>

    #Example

    cell pncell_imcell.bmc.com mc imcell.bmc.com 1828

    Note

    <port> : Specify the port number of the default cell that is Infrastructure Management cell. Default port number of Infrastructure Management cell is 1828.

  7. Reload the mcell.dir file by running the following command: 

    #Syntax

    mcontrol -n <rate cell name> reload dir

    #Example

    mcontrol -n ratecell reload dir

  8. Create a propagation policy or rule on the rate cell to propagate events to the default cell that is Infrastructure Management cell.

  9. Restart the Infrastructure Management server by running the pw system start command.
