The following parameters are valid for the Command option when you are creating a remote action in the Create Remote Actions dialog box:

  • $device - Device name 
  • $srcip - IP of the source agent on which the monitor instance is running. If there is no Source Agent attribute for a monitor or if it is a not a Infrastructure Management event, then this is the IP of the device 
  • $targetip - IP of the TargetIP attribute available for the monitor instance. If there is no TargetIP attribute for the monitor or if it is not a Infrastructure Management event, the value is N/A. 
  • $ip - If there is an attribute Target IP for the monitor, $IP displays the ServerIP. If there is no TargetIP attribute, this is the Device IP. 
  • $instancename - Name of the monitor instance while creating/updating a monitor instance. 
  • $monitortype - Name of a monitor type created by Infrastructure Management developers or external developers if users write an SDK monitor. 
  • $rulename - Event rule name that triggers this command. This is applicable only if the diagnostic command was triggered by an event rule. If not, a N/A would be displayed as a result for this parameter. 
  • $pronethome - Home directory where Infrastructure Management software is installed. 
  • $status - The status of an event (Open or Closed). Applicable only when the diagnostic command is triggered from the event list page and event history page. From other pages, N/A is displayed as output for this parameter. 
  • $severity - Severity of an event (Critical, Major, Minor). Applicable only when the diagnostic command is triggered from the event list page and Event history page. From other pages, N/A is displayed as output for this parameter. 
  • $mc_ueid - Universal event identifier. When an event is propagated, the receiving cell gets a new local identifier, event_handle, but the event keeps the old universal identifier mc_ueid. For example, t2000-alr-2356.
    • Events that are Infrastructure Management events have the format as <host><number>. 
    • Events that are Infrastructure Management abnormalities have the format as <host><number>. 
    • Events that are Infrastructure Management external/imported events have the format as <host><number>. 
  • $mc_location - Location at which the managed object resides. For example, labs.bmc.com 
  • $mc_host - Fully qualified name of the host on which the about occurred. For example, t2000.labs.bmc.com 
  • $mc_host_address - Network address corresponding to the mc_host slot. For example, 172.23.30.78

    Note

    This slot can contain some other type of information in which a host value is not meaningful.

  • $mc_object_class - Identifies the class of an object. For example, Windows Process. If the object class cannot be derived from the original event, it should be filled in during enrichment. 
  • $mc_object - Subcomponent of the host to which the event is related. For example, http://www.bmc.com or Drive = C:\Program Files\ProactiveNet, Target IP/Host Name = 172.22.173.108 
  • $mc_tool_class - A user-defined categorization of the tool reporting the event. For example, the mc_tool_class value for an SNMP adapter could be SNMP. And the mc_tool_Class value for an NT EventLog Adapter might be NT_EVLOG. The mc_tool_class value for native events is PNET. For Infrastructure Management events, this slot contains the string PNET. 
  • $mc_tool - Any event is within any value that can further distinguish whether the event is coming from within a mc_tool_class value. For example, for the NT Event Log Adapter, it could be the name of the log to which the incident was logged. If the mc_tool_class is a management tool such as PATROL or ITO, then the mc_tool should be a string that enables an action on the event to initiate a communication in context with the mc_tool. For Infrastructure Management events, this slot contains the fully-qualified DNS name of the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server. 
  • $status - Status value of the event. 
  • $severity - Severity value of the event. 
  • $mc_priority - Current priority of the event. Possible value include PRIORITY_5 is considered as lowest priority, followed by PRIORITY_4, PRIORITY_3,PRIORITY_2. PRIORITY_1 is considered to be the highest priority.

    Note

    Macros are whole-word substitutions and do not work the way regular expressions do.
    The following example illustrates the usage of macros in general.
    For example on usage of $MC_PRIORITY. If $MC_PRIORITY is used as /tmp/$MC_PRORITY, the macro replacement does not work.
    The correct usage for this macro is $MC_PRIORITY as a standalone word. It does not work if you use suffixes or prefixes with the macro.

  • $msg - Text description of the event. For example, Sybase ASA Intelliscope Forced Commits, 7.370 per sec is above All Baseline
  • $mc_notes - List of free text annotations added to the event. The contents of this slot is implementation dependant. Rules or users should not rely on a particular value in this slot. 
  • $mc_long_msg - Infrastructure Management events, more information is stored in mc_long_msg. 
  • $mc_owner - Current user assigned to the event. 
  • $mc_origin_class - Identifies the event management system type. This slot might have the same value as the mc_tool_class slot if this is only a two-layer implementation.
