The TrueSight console displays events in the Events page. Events come from two sources:
- Infrastructure Management Servers
- Remote cells
In an integrated environment, events from App Visibility Manager are sent through an Infrastructure Managements Server or a remote cell. In an environment with only App Visibility Manager (that is, not integrated with Infrastructure Management), application metrics and problems are displayed through the Application View.
By default, the Events page displays events from the Infrastructure Management Servers that you have access to. You can perform actions and remote actions on these events, and apply all types of filters to better monitor and manage them.
A remote cell or an event enrichment cell is a component of the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management product that pre-processes and propagates events to the Infrastructure Management Server cell. However, not all events are propagated to the Infrastructure Management Server cell. For example, a remote cell might manage all SNMP events or events from a Windows log adapter and not send those to the Infrastructure Management cell. In some scenarios, you might need to view these events for diagnosis and troubleshooting. In the Events page, you can select a remote cell as a source and view all its events and work on them.
Consider the following points when you are working with events from a remote cell:
