Adding/Modifying New Component Types Using the Integration Console

eG Enterprise provides out-of-the-box monitoring support to over 150 applications/devices, 10+ operating systems, and 9+ virtualization platforms. Specialized monitoring models are available in eG for each of these applications/devices/systems/hypervisors. If eG does not offer a monitoring model out-of-the-box for any application/device that is operational in your environment, then you can use the Integration Console to build a monitoring model for that type of component. This can be achieved by:

  • Creating a new component-type for the custom application/device using the Integration Console;
  • Building a layer stack for the new component-type;
  • Associating/Disassociating performance and configuration tests for that component-type;

This chapter discusses each of these steps in detail, using an illustrated example. In this example, we will be creating a monitoring model for the Tuxedo_Domain_Server component. As part of this exercise, we will be:

  • Creating a new Tuxedo_Domain_Server component-type;
  • Building a layer model for this component-type by grouping together some user-defined and pre-defined layers;
  • Disassociating some tests that are by default mapped to the layers supported by this component-type;
  • Associating configuration tests with this component-type
