Infrastructure Events workarea overview
The Infrastructure Events workarea allows the cloud administrator to view the status of Distributed Server Option (DSO) and Reconciliation Engine events for a heartbeat status and event log status on the enterprise BMC Remedy AR System server (AR System server) and the cloud AR System server.
This topic includes the following sections:
Heartbeat and event log status
The DSO heartbeat runs at an interval of every two minutes. The Reconciliation Engine heartbeat uses the Continuous Job Interval as set on the enterprise AR System server and the cloud AR System server.
The heartbeat displays one of the following status indicators:
- Good — Displayed when the response time is approximately within 1.5 times the interval.
- Warning — Displayed when the response time is approximately greater than 1.5 times the interval but less than 2 times the interval.
- Error — Displayed when the response time is approximately greater than 2 times the interval.
Heartbeat errors do not always indicates real errors. If there are many records to process, the error could indicate that the system is simply taking more than 2 times the set interval to process the records. If you consistently see heartbeat errors, consider making adjustments to the workflow, as described in Customizing the heartbeat to prevent false errors.
The event log status displays one of the following status indicators:
- Good — Indicates that no issues were found.
- Informational — Displays an informational message from DSO or reconciliation engine.
- Warning — Displays a warning message from DSO or reconciliation engine.
- Error — Displays an error message from DSO or reconciliation engine. The DSO status also displays as
Errorif there is a pending DSO operation.
To troubleshoot reconciliation or DSO issues, see one of the following sections:
- Troubleshooting BMC Remedy Distributed Server Option and DSO status scenario
- Reconciliation Engine issues
To get more information about the cause of these statuses for reconciliation, see To get more reconciliation status information
- Status tables — The status icons display worst condition listed in each table. From best to worst, the status states are Reset, Good, Information, Warning, Unknown, and Error
- Indicates the status is good.
- Indicates that the heartbeat returned 1.5 times longer than the heartbeat interval but less than 2 times the heartbeat interval.
- Indicates an error message was returned or that the heartbeat was returned 2 times longer than the heartbeat interval.
- Indicates an unknown DSO status because a dependent server is down.
- Indicates that the reconciliation job event has a state of warning or information.
- Indicates that monitoring and the status was reset.
- Click View in the Details column for more information about the status.
- Clear the Monitoring On check box to disable monitoring.
- Click the reset button to clear the current status states.
- Click the refresh button to refresh the data.
DSO status scenario
This sample scenario can help you understand the how to interpret a DSO status.
If DSO is no longer running on the cloud AR System server, the cloud AR System heartbeat is set to Error and the enterprise AR System heartbeat is set to unknown. This combination of heartbeat statuses, cloud AR=error and enterprise AR=unknown, indicates that you should troubleshoot and fix any DSO issues on the cloud AR System server before you troubleshoot DSO issues on the enterprise AR System server.
To get more reconciliation status information
From either the cloud AR System server or the enterprise AR System server:
- Launch the BMC Atrium Core Console and select Applications > Reconciliation.
- Look for the applicable reconciliation job:
- BMC CSM CDB Data Reconciliation on the cloud AR System server
- BMC CSM ENT Data Reconciliation on the enterprise AR System server
