TrueSight Presentation Server overview

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 TrueSight 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 multi-tenancy support is enabled through integrated system authentication with Remedy Single Sign-On.

TrueSight Presentation 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 TrueSight 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 TrueSight 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 Remedy Single Sign-On

Remedy Single Sign-On (Remedy SSO) is an authentication system that enables users to enter their credentials only once for authenticating in a multi-software environment. Upon authentication, users automatically gain access to all applications that are integrated with Remedy SSO. In TrueSight Presentation Server, Remedy SSO supports only the following authentication types:

  • Local
  • LDAP/AD
  • SAMLv2
  • Kerberos
  • Certificate-based

Based on your organization's requirements, you can configure any of the authentication types to authenticate the users for TrueSight product components. To configure and use these authentication types you must do the following:

  • Install the Remedy Single Sign-On server and configure it with an authentication server such as LDAP/AD or SAMLv2.
  • Create the required tenants (realms), user groups, and users on the Remedy Single Sign-On Admin console.
  • Integrate the Remedy Single Sign-On server with the TrueSight Presentation Server during the TrueSight Presentation Server installation or upgrade.

For getting started with Remedy SSO, see  Remedy Single Sign-On at-a-glance
