We are in the process of moving from CA eHealth to CA UIM and we are looking for replica of eHealth monitoring in UIM.
I am observing below challenges.
Disk Monitoring --> We need static and dynamic thresholds to be created and apply it to all the servers in a group.
IM based cdm probe is not having an option to configure dynamic thresholds. Using Admin console, we can configure dynamic thresholds at disk level (Ex: cdm\hostname\Disks\DiskName) and not at all Disks level. That means, we have to go to each disk and configure the dynamic thresholds. This is not a feasible option for a server with more than 20 mount points/Disk partitions.
Is there any way to configure and apply the rules at all disk partitions/mount points irrespective of partition/mount point name? How can I push these dynamic rules to all servers?
The same with IOSTAT probe.
Static Thresholds: in eHealth, we have time sliding windows which control the static thresholds to alarm on particular metric. Example: If CPU utilization is >=95% for 15 mins out of 30 mins, generate alarm.
I don't see this option is available for static thresholds. Whereas, it is available for Dynamic thresholds. What is the option here?
Combined monitoring rules: We nee combined rules that generate alarm for multiple metrics.
Example: If CPU Utilization > 90% and CPU Average Load >=15 then generate alarm.
I don't see this kind of configuration available. How best we can achieve this? I do not prefer LUA script in AO as we have multiple rule of this kind.
Process Set Monitoring: We are creating the process set (group of processes) and monitoring them with set of alarm rules. With this setup, let us say there are 2 processes are setup to make a process set. We will enable CPU and Memory monitoring on process set. If the process set CPU/Memory is high against given threshold alarm will be generated. How can we achieve this in UIM?
