Software Instance type attributes created

The patterns in this module will set the following value for the type attribute on a SI:

 Pattern NameSI type
WXNodeKognitio WX Node
WXDBKognitio WX Database

Other Node types created

The patterns will also create the following additional nodes:

Simple Identification Mappings

The trigger process is given a simple identification mapping:



"Kognitio WX Node"

unix_cmd "dbgserver"

"Kognitio WX Database"

unix_cmd "wxdb"

Obtaining cmd_path

The pattern WXNode extracts cmd_path from process path using regex:

  • '^(/\S+)/dbgserver'

Obtaining the version information


The pattern WXNode extracts full version using command :

  • %cmd_path%/wxserver info version


The patterns WXNode and WXDB extract full version from the path like :

  • /opt/kognitio/wx2/ver80100rel160415


The pattern WXNode extracts full version from smd-angel file using regex:

  • "Angel\s+v(\d+(?:\.\d+)+)"

Obtaining system_id

The pattern WXNode obtains system_id from Active Versioning command output using regex :

  • '\d+\s+on\s+(\S+)'

If fails then runs command :

  • %cmd_path%/wxserver info config

From the output extracts the value using regex:

  • 'system_id=(\S+)'

Obtaining node_id

The pattern WXNode obtains node_id by running command:

  • %cmd_path%/wxserver info smds

Obtaining master node name

The pattern WXNode obtains master_node value by running command:

  • %cmd_path%/wxserver info smds

If fails , runs command :

  • %cmd_path%/wxserver info master

Application Model Produced by Software Pattern


BMC Atrium Discovery uses the following approach for modeling Kognitio Analytical Platform components.

Software Pattern Model

Pattern Trigger

The WXNode pattern triggers on a dbgserver unix process.

TheWXDB pattern triggers on a wxdb unix process.

The KognitioCluster pattern triggers on a Kognitio WX Node SI with system_id attribute.

SI Depth

The WXNode and WXDB patterns create an instance-based Software Instance with the key based on SI type, and the host key.

The KognitioCluster pattern creates an instance-based SoftwareCluster, its key being based on the cluster_id, and SI type of the triggering SI.

Software Instance Modeling

Software Instance details of the Kognitio Analytical Platform generated with this pattern:

Software Context view

The image below is an example of software context view of the Kognitio Analytical Platform and related software:

Relationship creation

The pattern creates the following relationships:

model.rel.Communication : (Client=Kognitio WX Node, Server=Kognitio WX Database)
model.setContainment : (kognitio_cluster_sc=Kognitio Analytical Platform Cluster, clustered_sis=Kognitio WX Nodes)

Subject Matter Expertise

Subject Matter Expert input will be welcome on any other potential approaches not discussed to improving product versioning coverage and depth of
Kognitio Analytical Platform model.
