Pattern templates

BMC Discovery includes patterns that model commonly deployed software. Through monthly Technology Knowledge Updates (TKUs), the Technology Knowledge Network team updates and creates new patterns to increase coverage of the leading products running in global 2000 data centers. Additionally, many template patterns are supplied with BMC Discovery. They are available from the Create Pattern page.

The following patterns are included:

  • template_simple_si—Maintain a simple Software Instance based on identifying a process.
  • template_si_instances—Maintain an identifiable Software Instance triggered on a process with its identity in its command line.
  • template_si_version_path—Maintain a grouped Software Instance triggered on a process, with the Software Instance version found in the path.
  • template_si_version_path_table—Maintain a grouped Software Instance triggered on a process, with the Software Instance version found in the path and looked up in a table.
  • template_si_version_command—Maintain a grouped Software Instance triggered on a process, with the Software Instance version found by running a command.
  • template_si_version_registry—Maintain a grouped Software Instance triggered on a process, with the Software Instance version found in the Windows registry.
  • template_si_version_xml_file—Maintain a grouped Software Instance triggered on a process, with the Software Instance version found in an XML file.
  • template_si_version_package—Maintain a grouped Software Instance triggered on a process, with the Software Instance version found in package information.
  • template_si_collect_children—Maintain a Software Instance based on identifying a process that collects the process' children into a single SI.
  • template_bai_search—Maintain a Business Application Instance based on identifying a Software Instance and searching for some other components.
  • template_bai_add—Maintain a Business Application Instance based on identifying each of several Software Instances that contribute to it.
  • template_host_location—Maintain relationships linking hosts to locations based on hostname.
  • template_sql_asset_integration—Use business contextual information stored in a SQL database to annotate hosts with ownership and location information.
  • template_sql_deep_discovery—Issue SQL queries to a discovered database to extract further information about it or other software.
  • template_mainframe_mq—Maintain an identifiable Mainframe MQDetail and relationships to the parent Message Server Software Instance.
  • template_mainframe_storage—Maintain an identifiable item of Mainframe Storage based on a TapeDrive or DASDDrive and relationships to the containing StorageCollection and MFParts.
  • template_mainframe_transaction—Maintain an identifiable Mainframe Transaction and relationships to the parent Transaction Server Software Instance.
  • template_cmdb_cs_augment—Augment BMC_ComputerSystem CIs synchronized to the CMDB with additional information taken from the BMC Discovery Host node.
  • template_cmdb_hostname_override—Override the HostName attribute of BMC_ComputerSystem in the CMDB so it takes only the first component of compound dot-separated hostnames.
  • template_cmdb_location—Relate BMC_ComputerSystem CIs to BMC_PhysicalLocation CIs in the CMDB.
  • template_cmdb_ss_augment—Augment BMC_SoftwareServer CIs synchronized to the CMDB with additional attributes taken from the BMC Discovery Software Instance node.
  • template_cmdb_ss_cti—Override the default Category, Type, and Item values for BMC_SoftwareServer CIs mapped from particular BMC Discovery Software Instance nodes.
