Use the detailed diagnosis provided by this test to find out which resource of the organization is currently utilized by more number of users and which user consumes more resources.

Target of the test : Ansible Tower

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed. By default, this is set to 5 minutes.

Host

The IP address of the host for which this test is to be configured.

Port

The port at which the specified host listens. By default, this is NULL

Username and Password

The eG agent makes REST API calls for pulling out performance metrics from the Ansible Tower. For this purpose, the eG agent should be allowed to connect to Ansible Tower's REST API. To enable this connection, administrators need to configure the valid credentials of a user who has administrator privileges on the Ansible Tower against the Username and Password parameters.

Confirm Password

Confirm the password by retyping it here.

DD Frequency

Refers to the frequency with which detailed diagnosis measures are to be generated for this test. The default is 1:1. This indicates that, by default, detailed measures will be generated every time this test runs, and also every time the test detects a problem. You can modify this frequency, if you so desire. Also, if you intend to disable the detailed diagnosis capability for this test, you can do so by specifying none against DD frequency.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise suite embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
