You can use application models to perform the following activities:

  • View the status and high-level information of all the applications in your network and identify those applications that need your attention.
  • Filter and sort applications by status so that you can track applications that you are interested in.
  • Drill-down into application and leverage the problem isolation capabilities of TrueSight Operations Management.
  • View the overall status summary of an application and focus on a specific area to find the root cause of any issue.
  • View the top-level service node in the the application model view to better understand the overall health of the application.
  • View each node in the the application model view to better understand the health and status of each node.

This topic presents the following sections:

To view an application model

  1. In the Operations Management console, click Monitoring > Applications.
  2. Click the application whose model you want to view.
  3. In the Application Monitoring page, click the Model tab. The application model for that application is displayed.

Each node in the application model represents a device or a group that is a part of the application. The color of each node determines the severity status of that node. The severity status is used to calculate the overall status of the application. For example, even if one node in the application is in red, the entire application is considered in critical state. The following figure is an example of an automatic application model:

To change the orientation of an application model

  • Click the icon and select from Top To Bottom, Bottom To Top, Left To Right, and Right To Left depending on the hierarchy in which you want to view the model.

To highlight only impacted nodes

  • Click Spotlight on to highlight only the impacted nodes. The rest of the nodes in the application model are dimmed. To view all the nodes in the same brightness, click Spotlight off.

To view the events and devices associated with each node

  1. Click a node to view all the events and devices associated with the node.
    The Events tab that displays the event details is displayed by default. This information is propagated from the Monitoring > Events page. For more information about monitored events and the actions you take, see Performing event operations.

If your system is integrated with BMC TrueSight IT Data Analytics, you can perform root-cause analysis on events from the application model, node, or a specific event.

  1. For applications associated with IT Data Analytics, from the action menu next to the application name, select Launch BMC TrueSight IT Data Analytics.
  2. Select a node and from the action menu next to the node name in the details pane, select Launch BMC TrueSight IT Data Analytics.
  3. From the action menu next to an event, select Launch BMC TrueSight IT Data Analytics.
