Collecting data via Capacity Agents
You can use Capacity Agents to collect data from the managed systems in your environment. The managed systems include physical systems and systems that run on the virtualized platforms, such as AIX, HP, KVM, and Solaris. The data collected by the Capacity Agents is transferred to the Gateway Server, which processes the data. The processed data is transferred to the Application Server and then to the database. You can view this data in the views and analyze it for investigating the capacity-related issues in the managed systems.
Additionally, you can configure the Gateway Server to aggregate and store the process-level data from the Capacity Agents. This process-level data can be accessed from the Process Profile page in the Data Explorer view for AIX, KVM and Solaris in the TrueSight console.
To collect data using Capacity Agents, complete the following tasks:
After the data is collected from the Capacity Agents, the Gateway Server converts the data to the VIS file format. The ETLs that were created automatically transfer the VIS files to the Application Server.
Configure the Gateway Server to aggregate process-level data
Before you begin
Configure the Gateway Server and Capacity Agents to collect data.
To configure the Gateway Server to aggregate process-level data
- In the TrueSight Capacity Optimization console, select the required Gateway Server.
- Schedule process rollup for aggregating and storing process-level data from AIX, KVM and Solaris servers. For more information, see Aggregating process-level data for views.
- In the TrueSight console, use the Process Profile page of the Data Explorer views to view the process-level data. For more information, see Using views to analyze infrastructure and virtual data.
