This topic provides information about integrating with TrueSight Presentation Server to collect and analyze event data.
At a high level, this integration helps you perform the following functions:
To see all the features (or capabilities) supported with this integration, see the compatibility matrix at Integrating.
The metrics chart is not displayed for events that are generated from the integrated TrueSight Presentation Server.
This topic contains the following information:
The high-level steps involved in performing this integration and enabling the functions available with the integration are described in the following table:
|Goal||High-level steps||Additional information|
|2||Create a data collector.||Collecting data from external systems|
Perform a search to analyze the events retrieved.
|Getting started with search|
|Send events and fetch applications||1|
Create a saved search.
|Saving and sharing searches for analytics and monitoring|
Create a notification to log an event in TrueSight Presentation Server.
While creating the notification, you can also search for application names available on TrueSight Presentation Server. With this the logged event is associated with the application name that you searched while creating the notification.
|Setting up notifications to create alerts or reports|
To integrate TrueSight Presentation Server with IT Data Analytics, you need to perform the following functions:
Enable Atrium Single Sign-On 9.0 to communicate with IT Data Analytics.
An integration with TrueSight Presentation Server actually involves an integration with TrueSight Infrastructure Management registered with TrueSight Presentation Server. When you integrate IT Data Analytics with TrueSight Presentation Server, TrueSight Infrastructure Management cells get listed on IT Data Analytics. You can see the cells listed by navigating to Administration > External Configurations, selecting the external configuration (which was automatically created after the integration), and clicking View External Configuration. You can use these cells to achieve the following goals:
The following information provides details about registering details of the IT Data Analytics server on the TrueSight console.
Ensure that TrueSight Presentation Server is up and running in your environment. For more information, see
Ensure that you have already configured TrueSight Infrastructure Management on TrueSight Presentation Server. For more information, see
If you have not already enabled Atrium Single Sign-On 9.0 to communicate with IT Data Analytics, run the enablesso CLI command CLI command.
You might want to see some troubleshooting scenarios regarding the integration. For more information, see Troubleshooting common issues.
To enable cross-launch from the TrueSight console into IT Data Analytics, you must first register details of the IT Data Analytics Server with TrueSight Presentation Server (on the TrueSight console). For more information, see the integration process.
You can cross-launch into IT Data Analytics from applications and events available on the TrueSight Console. Before you cross-launch into IT Data Analytics, it is important that you create a data collector for the following items:
Collecting data into the system. Creating data collectors beforehand ensures that you can search events after you cross-launch from the TrueSight console into IT Data Analytics.are objects that help you collect data records (or events) from the target hosts and make it available for search and analysis. For more information, see
Create data collectors to start collection of event data from TrueSight Presentation Server. For more information, see Monitor using external configuration data collector.
Create notifications on the event data collected and subsequently log events on TrueSight Presentation Server. For more information, see Setting up notifications to create alerts or reports.
