    The TrueSight Presentation Server hosts the web-based TrueSight console functions and consumes data from various TrueSight products to provide a consolidated set of views for monitoring the infrastructure, real and synthetic applications, and capacity planning. In addition to data presentation, the Presentation Server performs functions such as role-based access control and data management functions such as storage and persistence.

     

     The TrueSight Presentation Server supports integrations to other products, high availability, and disaster recovery. User management and multitenancy support is enabled through integrated system authentication with Atrium Single Sign-On.

    TrueSight Presentation Server structure

    The following diagram illustrates the relationship of the TrueSight Presentation Server functions.


    LayerDescription

    application

    The application layer consists of all the functions that are displayed in the TrueSight console and the Application Programming Interface (APIs) that communicate with the platform layer APIs.
    platformThe platform layer consists of functions such as messaging, Representational State Transfer (REST) web services, role-based access control (RBAC), logging, clustering for high availability, and other core functions that make up the Presentation Server.
    datastore

    The datastore layer functions include data caching and data persistence:

    • Data caching - The Presentation Server uses Infinispan as the caching service for caching the entities created in the TrueSight console and the entities received from the data providers, such as Meta (managed object definition), managed objects, devices, events from the cell, and groups. 

    • Data persistence - The Presentation Server utilizes the following software to store and persist information:

      • PostgreSQL Server - Stores information such as data provider servers, devices, groups, application model entities and relationships, and entities such as PATROL Agents, and Integration Service hosts and clusters.

      • Elasticsearch with Lucene - Persists and searches the events received from the data providers.

    Integrated system authentication with Atrium Single Sign-On

    For system authentication and tenant administration, the Presentation Server utilizes Atrium Single Sign-On. Atrium Single Sign-On is an authentication system that supports many authentication protocols and provides single sign-on and single sign-off for users of BMC products. Atrium Single Sign-On allows users to present credentials only once for authentication and subsequently be authenticated automatically by every BMC product that is integrated into the system. Atrium Single Sign-On supports authentication with traditional systems such as LDAP or Active Directory. For complete information about Atrium Single Sign-On, see  BMC Atrium Single Sign-On 9.0.
