    Overview

    Deployable packages consist of monitoring installation components, such as the BMC PATROL Agent and monitoring solutions. The monitoring installation components can then be installed together using the deployable package.

    As an administrator, after creating a deployable package, you can save the package for future use, or save and download the package on the current host. For saved packages, you can download and install the package on any host, or edit a package.

    Working with the deployable packages

    As an administrator, to monitor your environment, you need to create deployable packages that you can deploy and install to PATROL Agents. You can include single or multiple monitoring solutions in a deployable package. For more information, see Creating deployable packages.

    Example

    To monitor the disk space and CPU usage on a Windows computer, you need to create a deployable package that includes the BMC PATROL for Microsoft Windows Servers monitoring solution. From this monitoring solution, you need to include the PATROL Knowledge Module for Microsoft Windows Operating System. When you deploy this package, you are able to monitor the disk space and CPU usage.

    The Deployable Packages tab on the Repository page lets you manage the deployable packages.

     

    The following table lists the tasks you can perform from this tab:
