Managing Components Using eG Admin Interface
The flowchart below explains the basic steps for managing components using the eG administrative interface.
Figure 9 : The Manage/Unmanage flow chart
Step 1: Start Discovery.
Step 2: Check if all the components are automatically discovered. If the components are not automatically discovered, then change the IP range/ Alter port, and run discovery again.
Step 3: Now manage the discovered components. The Discovered components have to be explicitly managed for the eG agents to monitor them.
Step 4: If the components are still not discovered, then manually add the components to the eG Enterprise system.
Step 5: Try to sign out of the eG administrative interface.
Step 6: The unconfigured test window appears. Now, configure the tests manually.
Step 7: Every test takes certain input parameters for execution; these parameters vary according to the purpose of the test and may typically indicate:
- How often the test is to be executed;
- On which host should the test run;
- What should be monitored – for eg., a test that checks the availability of TCP ports on a host will take a list of TCP ports to check for as a parameter;
- Credentials required (if any) for accessing the target host or for running certain commands built-into the test, and MORE.
Step 8: Finally, signout of the eG administrative interface.
