IMS User Test

This test monitors the user accounts that exist in a domain.

Target of the test : An Oracle Communications Messaging Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every domain.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The host for which the test is to be configured.

Port

The SMTP port of the Oracle Communications messaging server.

ServerRoot

Specify the path to the directory into which all servers of a given server group (i.e., all servers managed by a given Administration Server) are installed. For example, in Windows environments, the path can be expressed as: C:\iOracom\server5. In Unix platforms, the path can be specified in the following format: /usr/iOracom/server5. A server group may include other Oracle Communications messaging servers in addition to the messaging server.

ConfigRoot

Specify the path to the directory in which the config root file "msg.conf" exists. By default, this file will be located within the "config" directory of the "current messaging server instance directory". For example, in Windows environments, the path can be expressed as: C:\iPlanet\Server5\msg-egtest\config. In Unix platforms, the path can be specified in the following format: usr/iplanet/server5/msg-sun08/config.

Domains

Specify the names of the domains hosted in the current messaging server instance. Multiple domains can be provided as a comma-separated list, but ensure that there is no space between a comma and a domain name. Example: chn.egurkha.com,eg.egurkha.com. Only the users present in the specified domains will be monitored.

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.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Users connected

Indicates the number of user accounts present in a domain.

Number

 

Disk space consumed

Indicates the total disk space consumed by the messages in the user accounts of a particular domain.

MB

If this value is high then it indicates that the users of this domain are consuming more disk space. The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, provides the list of top 10 users of a domain who have consumed maximum disk resources. This information helps users in identifying the user accounts which utilize more space, and take the necessary measures to free adequate disk space in those accounts

Messages stored

Indicates the total number of messages present in the user accounts of a particular domain

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, provides the list of top 10 users of a domain holding maximum number of messages in their respective user accounts.
