This section describes how to configure the PATROL for UNIX and Linux built-in recovery actions, which are corrective actions taken by PATROL when a parameter reaches a set value or is in a warning or alarm state.

Before you begin

The recovery actions that are available to be configured depend on the KMs that you have loaded.

To Configure Recovery Actions

  1. Access the host application class menu as described in Accessing Menu Commands, InfoBoxes, and Online Help.
  2. From the list of recovery actions, select the desired recovery action and click Accept.
  3. From the list of recovery action instances, select the instance and click Edit. For information about which instance to select, see following table.

    Selecting a Recovery Action Instance


    Recovery Action to Select

    Remove files once the percentage of the filesystem currently in use exceeds the threshold established in either Alarm1 or Alarm2 for the FSCapacity parameter. Also attempts to remove core dump files, and if the filesystem is /tmp or /tmp is mounted off this filesystem, attempts to remove from /tmp files that are 30 days or older.


  4. From the Edit Recovery Action dialog box, choose from the settings described in the following table.

    Recovery Action Configuration Options

    PATROL runs the recovery action automatically, without prompting you.

    This recovery action applies to all FILESYSTEM instances.

    Run Attended

    PATROL prompts you before running the recovery action.

    This recovery action applies to all FILESYSTEM instances.

If a Problem Occurs

If you experience a problem when configuring recovery actions, see Troubleshooting PATROL for UNIX and Linux Problems..

BMC Software offers several PATROL consoles from which you can view a PATROL Knowledge Module (KM). Because of the different environments in which these consoles run, each one uses a different method to display and access information in the KM. This appendix provides instructions for accessing the KM menu commands, InfoBoxes, and online Help on each of the PATROL consoles. See the online Help for specific PATROL for UNIX and Linux components to view more detailed information about navigation in the PATROL Consoles.
