BMC TrueSight Operations Management provides real-time data about your monitored applications and infrastructure. With the Operations Management console, you can monitor the performance and availability of the following items:
This topic describes the procedure to manually create an application that you can monitor. Creating an application comprises adding devices, groups, or both, and creating dependencies between the components.
To perform this procedure, you must have-level access.
When you create an application, you add devices or groups to the application model. The devices or groups that you add are displayed as nodes model. You can connect the nodes and establish their hierarchy. When you click a node in the application model, details of the node are displayed in a configuration pane at the bottom of the page, as shown in the following figure:
On the Applications Management page, click the action menu iconand select Create Application.
Enter the following application details in the Create Application page:
|Name||Enter an application name.|
(Read only) Because the application is being created manually, the type is Manual.
To enable synthetic monitoring, select ON.
If you enable synthetic monitoring, then set up synthetic transaction monitoring after saving the application.
|Description||(Optional) Enter an application description.|
Set the importance of the application in your network. Importance is not calculated based on an algorithm.
The default setting is Medium.
|Status Computation Model||(Read only) Determines the algorithm that is used to compute the status of the application|
The parent node that contains the application name is displayed on the Model tab.
If you select a group, you can select Enable the Group to be a Cluster, and then enter a value from 1 to 100 to calculate a quorum.
The application is created and you can view the application model on the Model tab. Use the zoom feature on the right corner screen of the Model tab to zoom in and zoom out the application model.
The nodes in application models are dependent on one another. When you create a model, you determine the dependency and whether the event status is propagated—that is, whether the status of a "lower" node influences the status of a "higher" node, and, ultimately, the status of the application. If you do not connect the nodes, or if events are not propagated, then the node status has no impact on the status of the application.
In an automatically created model, the nodes are automatically dependent and events are automatically propagated.
The created application is displayed in the Applications page, where you can view the health of applications in your network.
