TKU June 2008

In TKU June 2008 the pattern module was updated to include the following changes:

Addition of pattern to identify Tideway Foundation Lifecycle Management

Pattern added to enable identification and versioning of Tideway Foundation Lifecycle Management

Key Update in the patterns of Foundation components

The key used for Foundation components is now composed of 'type' and 'host.key' rather than 'name' and 'host.key'. The reason for the change is that 'name' also contains the hostname of the host being scanned and using the hostname as part of the SI key is against best practice recommendations.

Minor improvement to pattern triggers

Regular expressions used when matching processes that trigger Foundation component patterns were improved slightly

TKU July 2008

Changes to the way SIs are linked to BAIs

The pattern now links the BAI to the SIs on the basis of version as well as SI type.

TKU November 2008

In TKU November 2008 the pattern module was updated to include the following changes:

With the release of Tideway Foundation 7.1.6, each of the main components making up Tideway Foundation were given a watchdog process with the same name as the trigger process. To prevent each of the six patterns triggering twice - once on the child and once on the parent, code has been added to terminate a pattern if it triggers on a child process rather than its parent.


TKU February 2010

In TKU February 2010 the pattern module was updated to include the following changes:

With the release of BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping 8.1,two additional patterns have been added - Report Service and SQL Provider Service.
Also a check has been added to assign the appropriate SI type to the product based on its version. All versions above 8.0 have their SI type set to BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping <Component Name> .

TKU March 2010

In TKU March 2010 the Foundation/ADDM BAI pattern was updated to create a BAI key that is not affected by version changes, preventing duplicate BAIs being created if the product was updated and then re-scanned.
