Every application and parameter PATROL discovers running on a monitored computer is represented as an icon on the PATROL Console. Application icons appear in the icon window of the computer they run on. Parameter icons appear in the icon window of the application or the computer they are associated with.
To access an application, double-click on the computer icon with the left mouse button. To access a parameter, double-click on an application with the left mouse button.
PATROL determines the application or parameter class and selects the appropriate icon from a library of icons. That icon is displayed for every instance of the application or parameter.
Following table contains information about each application in the PATROL KM for UNIX. For information about parameter icons, refer to the documentation for your console.
PATROL KM for UNIX Applications, Icons, and Descriptions
Represents a virtualized IBM ® AIX ® environment where an AIX partition corresponds to the logical partition type implemented on the AIX 5.3 POWER5 servers. You can use this application to manage processor capacity in CPUs while the OS is running.
Represents a computer instance that corresponds to the host computer that you are monitoring. Opening a computer instance icon displays the application classes that are active for that system.
Represents the COLLECTOR application, which maintains all of the collector parameters, the DCM application, which controls data collection from the Data Collection Manager binary program to associated PATROL parameters, and the CompositeColl, which enables you to construct a new composite parameter that consists of one or more parameters in a logical relationship that evaluates to true or false.
Represents the application that you can use to construct a new composite parameter that consists of one or more parameters in a logical relationship that evaluates to true or false You can use this application to set a warning or alarm condition based on the logical condition and not just on the parameter value.
Represents the application that displays instances of the composite parameters that you construct with the COMPOSITES_COLLECTOR application.
Represents the CPU application, which monitors CPU usage. This application also contains the SMP application on computers with multiple processors.
Represents the Data Collection Manager ( DCM) application, which controls data collection from BMC PATROL Perform collector to the Data Collection Manager and to associated BMC PATROL parameters.
Represents the DISK application, which monitors and provides information about disks and disk usage.
Represents the FILESYSTEM application, which monitors and provides information about filesystem resources.
Represents the HEALTH AT A GLANCE (HAAG) application, which monitors the general health and well-being of the system by providing an overall view of the system's CPU, filesystem, and virtual memory usage.
Represents the HP_VIRTUALIZATION application, which provides details of the HP Virtual Server environment in the BMC PATROL Consoles.
Represents the KERNEL application, which monitors system kernel processes and provides kernel resource-usage information, including i-nodes, the file table, and the process table.
|Represents the LOG and LOGMON application, which monitors different system log files.|
|Represents the LOGTEMP application, which allows you to create search string templates that you can apply to one or more log files.|
Represents the LDOM application, which monitors logical domains.
Represents the LVIRT application, which provides details of the Linux Virtual Server environment in the BMC PATROL Consoles.
Represents the MEMORY application, which monitors memory activity, including paging, I/O caching, and swapping.
Represents the NETWORK application, which monitors network activity.
Represents the NFS application, which monitors RPC (Remote Procedure Call) and NFS (Network File System) activities
Represents the PATROL application, which shows the number of PATROL Consoles currently running.
Represents the PATROLAGENT application, which monitors and manages the agent.
Represents the POOL application, which monitors and manages the pool of CPU resources required for Oracle ® Solaris™ zones Instances of the POOL application are displayed within the SOLARIS_VIRTUALIZATION container.
Represents the PRINTER application, which monitors the print queue and printer activity and with which you can perform printer administration activities.
Represents the PROCESS application, which displays statistics on active and zombie processes.
Represents the application that holds PROCCONT instances You can use this application to specify which processes you want to monitor.
Represents the PROCPRES application, which monitors specified processes running on your system This application is a child application of the PROCESS and PROCESS_PRESENCE (PROCCONT) applications and resides in the PROCESS_PRESENCE application's container window.
Represents the PROJECT application, which monitors projects created in global and non-global zones.
Represents the SCHEDULER application, which provides menu commands that enable you to perform tasks or run jobs once or at regular intervals. The task or jobs are written by you and stored as script files.
Represents the SECURITY application, which provides security-related menu commands.
Represents the SMP application This application displays information for each processor on multiprocessor computers. The prefix for SMP parameters is SMP. SMP parameters appear under SMP instances in the CPU container window for computers that have multiple processors.
Represents the SNMPHealth application This application displays information about the status of the PATROL SNMP subsystem. It also provides the ability to test various aspects of the system.
Represents the STORAGE application This application is a container for the DISK, FILESYSTEM, SWAP, and ZPOOL applications. It does not possess any parameters.
Represents the SWAP application, which monitors and provides information about utilization of system swap files SWAP parameters appear under SWAP instance icons. The SWAP application can return different results on different platforms.
Represents the UNIX_OS application class This application is a container for all other UNIX operating system applications. It does not possess any parameters. It does provide menu commands to set debugging for various collectors and to exclude application instances from being monitored.
Represents the USERS application, which monitors and provides information about user sessions and processes.
Represents the WPAR application, which monitors WPARs created in the AIX 6.1 environment.
Represents the ZONE application, which monitors and manages Solaris 10 zones Instances of the ZONE application are displayed within the SOLARIS_VIRTUALIZATION container.
Represents the ZPOOL application, which monitors and manages the storage pools and filesystems created on the storage pools.
