This topic presents instructions for modifying the list of monitored attributes for the Infrastructure Management adapter for IBM Tivoli Monitoring.

Through the Administration Console, you can edit the following characteristics of IBM Tivoli Monitoring adapter instances:

  • Include and exclude filters 
  • Auto-sync schedule

In addition, if you imported all the monitor types of IBM Tivoli Monitoring agents when you configured the adapter instance, you can edit the attributes and groups in the list of application classes (see To edit the list of attributes when all monitor types are imported.)

If you did not import all the monitor types of IBM Tivoli Monitoring agents when you configured the adapter instance, you can edit the attributes and groups by creating a new adapter instance. (See To edit the list of attributes when all monitor types are not imported.)

To edit the list of attributes when all monitor types are imported

If you imported all the IBM Tivoli Monitoring monitor types during monitor instance creation, then you can modify the list of monitored attributes.

  1. In the Administration Console, expand the Adapters> IBM Tivoli folder and select the adapter instance.
  2. Right-click the adapter instance and select Edit.

  3. In the Edit IBM Tivoli dialog box, click Next.

  4. Select or clear groups of application classes and click Next.

  5. Adjust the include and exclude filters, if required, and click Next.

  6. Adjust the auto-sync schedule, if required, and click Next.

  7. Review the summary details for the adapter. Click Back to adjust details, or click Finish to complete editing the adapter instance and to trigger an auto-sync poll.

To edit the list of attributes when all monitor types are not imported

If you did not import all the IBM Tivoli Monitoring monitor types during monitor instance creation, then you can adjust the list of monitor types by adding a new IBM Tivoli Monitoring adapter instance.

  1. In the Administration Console, add a new instance and connect to the Integration Service for IBM Tivoli Monitoring as described in Adding an adapter for IBM Tivoli Monitoring.
    Ensure that the Skip Import check box is clear so that you can import new monitor types.
  2. On the Import IBM Tivoli Application Classes screen, which lists the monitored agents, click Next and edit the list of imported monitor types.

    Note

    You cannot remove monitor types that are in use, but you can clear the attributes groups from the list of application classes so that the attributes are not displayed in the Operations Console.
