As a Solution Administrator or Tenant Administrator, you need to configure and administer the monitoring of your infrastructure by setting up data collection and monitoring for IT operations.
To set up the monitors, you must incrementally create monitors in a development or testing environment (phase I) before moving them to a production environment (phase II). You can set up your environments as described in the following illustration.
If you have separate environments for development and testing, you must configure the environments in three phases:
Phase I: In development environment
Phase II: In testing environment
Phase III: In production environment
Refer to the following Phase I and Phase II sections for steps to transition from one phase to the next.
Remember the following guidelines while performing the Phase I and II workflows:
The following process diagram describes the recommended workflow in a development or testing environment:
After you have validated and tested the collected data, you can move to the production environment. The following process diagram describes the recommended workflow in a production environment:
Define manual application models based on groups and devices, or implement BMC TrueSight App Visibility manager to enable automatic application models from which you can monitor the performance and health of active or synthetic applications, perform diagnostics, and trace application transactions.
Use third-party adapters to provide a mechanism for external applications to funnel data into Infrastructure Management. Data adapters facilitate the synchronization of performance data collected by specific monitoring solutions into Infrastructure Management for further analysis.
|Define impact service models to monitor when higher-level entities, such as applications, technical services, business services, and organizations are impacted, and how they are impacted when lower-level IT infrastructure entities, such as servers, network devices, and application systems are affected by some condition.|
