We have CA SOI as a Manager of Managers. Is it possible to use CA UIM instead of SOI as a MOM?
If yes, then how we will be able to enable the event policies and escalation policies, conditional policies etc?
Thanks in advance,
Apart from the technical challenges that will need to be addressed by a combination of auto-operator rules, custom probes and the like, to handle escalation policies, you will lose the Service Layer perspective along with the impact propagation that is currently provided by SOI (in case you are using it). You could do some approach with groups, but it will not be as powerful.
I'm not sure if UIM can substitute SOI.
What UIM can do is integrate with the below list of CA Products:
Integrate CA Application Delivery AnalysisIntegrate CA Cloud MonitorIntegrate CA Cloud Service ManagementIntegrate CA Network Flow AnalysisIntegrate CA SiteMinderIntegrate CA SpectrumIntegrate Flow Analysis (Flow Probe)
Capacity Predictive Analytics for CA UIM - Pre-releaseLog Analytics
And then, within UIM, with NAS and EMS manage alarms and events, as well those that come from some of the integrations.
There are some features that SOI has that UIM is not capable to offer, UIM has the concept of CI and the concept of group, but it does not have the concept of business service or the impact service modeling feature, so, you will loose all the functionality related with business services, which is the main SOI focus.
On the other hand, you can create in UIM custom scripts in lua, to enable business like rules on the alarms, for instance, if an application server A is down, and suddenly a second Application server B gets down, create a third critical alarm saying the service is down.
