Configuring Tests for IBM Datapower

After adding an IBM Datapower component, you will be redirected to the Components page (see Figure 1). Using the options provided in the Components page, you can modify, unmanage or delete the newly added component. In addition, you can also configure the tests, set thresholds and maintenance policies, and change the IP address.

To collect the performance metrics, you may need to configure the tests that are mapped to the IBM Datapower component. To configure the tests that need manual configuration, click on the icon in Figure 1.

Figure 2 then appears where the list of unconfigured tests will be listed in the UNCONFIGURED TESTS list box.
