    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.

    Icon

    Definition

    AIX_VIRTUALIZATION

    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.

    Agent host

    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.

    COLLECTORS

    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.

    COMPOSITES_COLLECTOR

    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.

    COMPOSITES

    Represents the application that displays instances of the composite parameters that you construct with the COMPOSITES_COLLECTOR application.

    CPU

    Represents the CPU application, which monitors CPU usage. This application also contains the SMP application on computers with multiple processors.

    DCM

    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.

    DISK

    Represents the DISK application, which monitors and provides information about disks and disk usage.

    FILESYSTEM

    Represents the FILESYSTEM application, which monitors and provides information about filesystem resources.

    HEALTH_AT_A GLANCE

    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.

    HP_VIRTUALIZATION

    Represents the HP_VIRTUALIZATION application, which provides details of the HP Virtual Server environment in the BMC PATROL Consoles.

    KERNEL

    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.

    LOG

    Represents the LOG and LOGMON application, which monitors different system log files.

    LOGTEMP

    Represents the LOGTEMP application, which allows you to create search string templates that you can apply to one or more log files.

    LDOM

    Represents the LDOM application, which monitors logical domains.

    LINUX_VIRTUALIZATION

    Represents the LVIRT application, which provides details of the Linux Virtual Server environment in the BMC PATROL Consoles.

    MEMORY

    Represents the MEMORY application, which monitors memory activity, including paging, I/O caching, and swapping.

    NETWORK

    Represents the NETWORK application, which monitors network activity.

    NFS

    Represents the NFS application, which monitors RPC (Remote Procedure Call) and NFS (Network File System) activities

    PATROL

    Represents the PATROL application, which shows the number of PATROL Consoles currently running.

    PATROLAGENT

    Represents the PATROLAGENT application, which monitors and manages the agent.

    POOL

    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.

    PRINTER

    Represents the PRINTER application, which monitors the print queue and printer activity and with which you can perform printer administration activities.

    PROCESS

    Represents the PROCESS application, which displays statistics on active and zombie processes.

    PROCCONT

    Represents the application that holds PROCCONT instances You can use this application to specify which processes you want to monitor.

    PROCPRES

    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.

    PROJECT

    Represents the PROJECT application, which monitors projects created in global and non-global zones.

    SCHEDULER

    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.

    SECURITY

    Represents the SECURITY application, which provides security-related menu commands.

    SMP
