The Monitor Details page displays detailed information about each monitor. 

View the monitor type, associated device and PATROL Agent, data and event streaming status, and monitor data collection status.

Viewing the performance overview of the monitor

On the Monitor Details page, the default tab is the Performance Overview tab, which is a graphical overview of the monitor.

 ItemDescription
Time period

Time period for which to display the graph. The default is 4 hours.

Choose a predefined time period or create your own custom time period.

Graph optionsSelect Edit Settings to customize the graph. See Customizing the graph for more information.
Previous/next time periodView the graph for the previous or next time period that you have set in (1)

 

Note

- If the selected time period contains a single data point, no graph is drawn. You cannot view this data point if data markers for graphs is disabled. To view the data point, enable the Show Data Markers option in the Devices Preferences page.

- The Monitor Name in the graph shows the absolute path, only when Show absolute path for the Monitor Instances is enabled under User Preferences.

For example, 

If Show absolute path for the Monitor Instances is not enabled, the path is displayed as <Server Host Name>/Services

If Show absolute path for the Monitor Instances is enabled, the path is displayed as Windows Process <Server Host Name>/ServicesNotice the Windows Process and /Services Paging in the path.

To view events using the events matrix

The event status and severity matrix displays the number of events in each status and severity.

Click any event count in the matrix to display the relevant events in the Events tab.

Note

To display the non-English monitor types and attributes, stop and restart the Presentation Server after you import the Central Monitoring repository:

From the <installation directory>\truesightpserver\bin folder, execute the following commands:

tssh server stop

tssh server start

On Linux computers, add & at the end of the tssh server start and tssh server stop commands so that the process runs in the background and you can continue to use the shell.

Customizing the graph

You can dynamically change the metric or other graph data using the graphing options.

OptionDescription
Graph Type

Select a graph type:

Multimetric Comparison - graphical analysis of multiple metrics

Single Metric Analysis - graphical analysis of a single metric

Metric

For a single metric analysis, select the monitor metric from the list or select the metrics to compare for a multimetric comparison.

Set the left- and right-axis attributes for a multimetric comparison.

Single metric analysis only
Baselines

There are two baselines: Baseline High and Baseline Low. Baseline High represents the point at which 95% of the weighted average of the historical values fall below this value for the selected time period. Baseline Low represents the point at which 90% of the weighted average of historical values for the selected time period fall above this line. Baseline indicators always use the current week as baseline data. The baseline indicator is recalibrated for each hourly point per week.

Select All to show condensed Baseline High and Baseline Low for hourly, daily, and weekly baseline values.

ThresholdsIf thresholds have been set for the data type that you are viewing, check boxes are displayed. These indicators show you the event settings relative to the performance of the data you are viewing.
Events

Show Intelligent Events: Displays any intelligent events on the selected attributes and for the selected duration. BMC PATROL Agent events that are associated with monitors are also considered intelligent events.

Show Abnormality: Displays any events on the selected attributes and for the selected duration.

Show External Events: Displays any events raised by a change entry, SNMP trap, or external events.

Graph Data

Hourly Maximum: Highest values of data found for the specified graph period. Peak indicator can be selected only when viewing data that is older than 24 hours.

Hourly Minimum: Lowest values of data found for the specified graph period. Low indicator can be selected only when viewing data that is older than 24 hours.

Period Maximum: Displays highest attribute value on the Y-axis.

Period Minimum: Displays lowest attribute value on the Y-axis.

Period Average: Displays average attribute value of all points of Period Minimum and Period Maximum attribute values.

PATROL Agent Data

Obtain Data from PATROL Agent: Reads and displays the performance metrics data directly from PATROL Agent. The data for the specified duration is displayed.

Note

When you select this option, all indicators except Show Annotations are hidden from the view because they are not applicable.

Show Annotations: Displays any annotations on the selected attributes and for the selected duration.

Note

 Annotations longer than hundred characters are truncated beyond the first hundred characters.
