Modifying the list of monitored HP OM attributes

This topic presents instructions for modifying the list of monitored attributes for the BMC adapter for HP OM.

Through the Administration Console, you can edit the following characteristics of HP OM adapter instances:

  • Include and exclude filters
  • Auto-sync schedule 

In addition, if you imported all the monitor types of a Smart Plug-In (SPI) when you configured the HP OM adapter instance, you can edit the attributes and groups in the list of application classes.
(See To edit the list of attributes when all monitor types are imported.)


If you did not import all the monitor types of an SPI when you configured the HP OM adapter instance, you can edit the attributes and groups by creating a new adapter instance.
(See To edit the list of attributes when all monitor types are not imported.)

To edit the list of attributes when all monitor types are imported

If you imported all the HP OM monitor types during monitor instance creation, then you can modify the list of monitored attributes.

  1. In the Administration Console, expand the Adapters > HP OM folder, and select the adapter instance.
  2. Right-click the adapter instance and select Edit.

  3. In the Edit HP OM dialog box, click Next.

  4. Select or clear groups of application classes and click Next.

  5. Adjust the include and exclude filters as required and click Next.

  6. Adjust the auto-sync schedule as required and click Next.

  7. Review the summary details for the adapter. Click Back to adjust details, or Finish to complete editing the adapter instance.

    Note

    After you edit or delete an adapter for HP OM, the system might take several minutes to respond if sub-processes are still running. As a workaround, you can manually stop the process:

    • (Microsoft Windows) Through Windows Task Manager, end the ovcodautil.exe process.
    • (Solaris or UNIX) Run the kill ovcodautil command.

To edit the list of attributes when all monitor types are not imported

If you did not import all the HP OM monitor types during monitor instance creation, then you can adjust the list of monitor types by adding a new HP OM adapter instance.

  1. In the Administration Console, add a new instance and connect to the Integration Service for HP OM, as described in Adding an adapter for HP OM.
    Verify that the Skip Import check box is clear so that you can import new monitor types.
  2. On the Import HP OM Application Classes screen, which lists the monitored agents, click Next and edit the list of imported monitor types.

    Note

    You cannot remove monitor types that are in use, but you can clear the attributes groups from the list of application classes so that the attributes are not displayed in the Operations Console.
