Qpid Broker Loggers Test

Loggers are responsible for writing of a log. The log includes log events that match a Logger's inclusion rules. Loggers are associated with either the Broker or a virtual host. Virtual host loggers write only log events related to that virtual host. Broker Loggers write log events from the Broker as a whole. Optionally a Broker Logger can be configured to exclude log events coming from virtual hosts. These abilities can be usefully exploited together in managed service scenarios to produce separate logs for separate user groups. Loggers can be added or removed at runtime, without restarting the Broker. However changes to a Logger's configuration such as file names and rolling options don't take effect until the next restart. Changes to a Logger's inclusion rules take effect immediately. This test reports the current state of the broker log files and alerts the administrators for any errors/warnings that exist in the broker log files.

Target of the test : Apache Qpid Java Broker

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the target Apache Qpid Java Broker.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The IP address of the target server that is being monitored.

Port

The port number through which the Apache Qpid Java Broker communicates. The default port is 8080.

Username

By default, the eG agent executes REST APIs on the target component to collect the required metrics. For the eG agent to execute the REST APIs, a user with monitoring privilege is required. Specify the name of such a user in this text box.

Password

Specify the password corresponding to the user mentioned in the Username text box here.

Confirm Password

Confirm the password by retyping it here.

SSL

By default, the SSL flag is set to No, indicating that the target Apache Qpid Java Broker is not SSL-enabled by default. To enable the test to connect to an SSL-enabled Apache Qpid Java Broker, set the SSL flag to Yes.

Timeout

Specify the duration (in seconds) within which the query executed by this test should time out in this text box.
