BMC Event Adapters prepare the source event data for processing by the cell event processor.
BMC Event Adapters are installed when you install the Integration Service. Event Adapters read or monitor external event sources from IT assets, format the collected information as cell events, and send these events to the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server Cell.
Although BMC Event Adapters are also installed with the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server, BMC recommends that BMC Event Adapters not be used on the server. Event reception into Infrastructure Management must be configured on remote cells with adapters on those cells.
Infrastructure Management provides the following Adapter groups:
- BMC Event Log Adapter for Windows, which collects source events from the Windows Event Log
- BMC Event Adapters (BMC EA):
- LogFile Adapter
- SNMP Adapter
- Perl EventLog Adapter for Windows
- IP Adapters
BMC Event Adapters are implemented in Perl. The adapters run as background processes and generate self-monitoring events that can be viewed in the operator console.
