Cell configuration parameters
Used as the initial value of the
cell_description slot of the internal
Used to configure how the the cell handles exceptions:
Indicates the level on which the cell must operate.
The operation level determines from which clients the cell accepts connections and events. The default value can accept connections from any computer.
Indicates whether the operation level should be lowered in case there is no license available for the desired level, as set by
Typically, more license tokens are available for lower operation levels.
Specifies the range of ports to use for outgoing connections.
For forward propagation, this port is used on the client side (or on the propagating cell side). This is useful to pass the event through firewalls with high restrictions. Most firewall configurations ignore source port information but require destination port information. However, firewall configuration usually can restrict the source ports as well.
Indicates whether or not the ports specified in
ConnectionPortRange should be reused as much as possible.
By default, the cell or command-line interface (CLI) tries to reuse ports from the specified range, in the specified order. When
ConnectionPortReuse=No, the next free port from the specified range is used for every new connection within the same session. When it reaches the end of the range, it restarts at the beginning of the range.
Determines whether or not the cell is a Operations Manager cell. This parameter is automatically configured by mcrtcell and should not be changed manually in mcell.conf.
JServer can only communicate directly with POMEnabled cell.
A Operations Manager (
POMEnabled=Yes) cell does not accept adapter clients, unless a license key is provided.
- A Operations Manager cell Knowledge Base must not be recompiled, unless license key is provided.
POMEnabled=Yes, then you cannot msend events to the cell unless you have an Event Management license.
POMEnabled=No, then you can msend events to the cell but the JServer can not communicate with it.
Specifies limitation of event processing speed.
At 100% the cell accepts events as fast as it can. At x% it does not accept events during (100-x)% of the time. This limits the cell's CPU utilization.
determines the interval length (in seconds) of a single collection. Metrics from a single collection are presented in the short term metrics counters. The default value is
specifies the number of similar single collections to be taken into account. The combination of that many most recent collections is presented in the medium term metrics counters. The default value is
Determines whether the cell listens on one specific interface or on all available interfaces.
ServerAllInterfaces=Yes, the cell communicates on all network interfaces on the host. When
ServerAllInterfaces=No, the cell only communicates with the network interface that has the IP address specified in the mcell.dir file of that cell.
Specifies the name of the cell directory file.
Specifies the TCP/IP port number at which the cell listens for all in-bound requests from sources, such as the administration console, CLIs, and adapters.
Specifies whether the cell is an Event Management cell or a Service Impact Model cell.
ServiceModelEnabled=No, the cell operates as an Event Management cell.
ServiceModelEnabled=Yes and Service Impact Management class definitions are loaded, the cell operates as a Infrastructure Management Service Impact Model Cell. If these class definitions are not available, the cell operates as an Infrastructure Management Event Management Cell.
Specifies the path to the default system-defined log directory.
Specifies the path to the default system-defined tmp directory.
Specifies the path to the default system-defined var directory.
1 Can also be used in the mclient.conf configuration file, which affects the behavior of all of the CLI commands. These parameters retain the same qualities and definitions in the mclient.conf file as they have in the mcell.conf file.
