eG Registered Users Test

This test reports the number and type (local or domain) of users who are currently registered with the eG Enterprise system. In the process, the test highlights the following:

  • The number and names of users who are newly registered;
  • The number and names of users whose subscriptions are about to expire or have expired;
  • The AD domains with which the eG manager integrates for managing domain user logins;

Target of the test : The eG Manager

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the eG manager being monitored.

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 port number at which the specified host listens.

JMX Remote Port

Here, specify the port at which the JMX listens for requests from remote hosts. In the <EG_MANAGER_INSTALL_DIR>\manager directory (on Windows; on Unix, this will be the /opt/egurkha/manager directory) of the eG manager, you will find a management.properties file. Set the port defined against the com.sun.management.jmxremote.port parameter of the file as the JMX Remote Port.

User, Password, and Confirm Password

By default, JMX requires no authentication or security. Therefore, the User, Password , and Confirm Password parameters are set to none by default.

JNDIName

The JNDIName is a lookup name for connecting to the JMX connector. By default, this is jmxrmi. If you have registered the JMX connector in the RMI registry using a different lookup name, then you can change this default value to reflect the same.

JMX Provider

This test uses a JMX Provider to access the MBean attributes of the eG manager and collect metrics. Specify the package name of this JMX Provider here. By default, this is set to com.sun.jmx.remote.protocol.

Timeout

Specify the duration (in seconds) for which this test should wait for a response from the eG manager. If there is no response from the eG manager beyond the configured duration, the test will timeout. By default, this is set to 240 seconds.

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.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Total users

Indicates the total number of users who are currently registered with the eG Enterprise system.

Number

 

New users

Indicates the number of users who registered with the eG Enterprise system during the last measurement period.

Number

Use the detailed diagnosis to know which users newly registered with the eG Enterprise system.

Expired users

Indicates the number of user subscriptions that have expired.

Number

Use the detailed diagnosis to know which user subscriptions have expired.

Nearing expiry users

Indicates the number of user subscriptions that are expected to expire within the next 7 days.

Number

Use the detailed diagnosis to know which user subscriptions that are about to expire within the next seven days.

Active users

Indicates the number of user subscriptions that have not expired.

Number

 

Local users

Indicates the number of local users who have registered with the eG Enterprise system.

Number

Local users are those users whose login credentials are stored in the eG database and are hence validated by the eG database while logging in.

Domain users

Indicates the number of domain users who have registered with the eG Enterprise system.

Number

The credentials of domain users are typically maintained by the AD server with which the eG manager integrates. Logins by such users will hence be validated by the AD server only.

Configured domains

Indicates the number of AD domains that have been configured on the eG manager.

Number

Use the detailed diagnosis to know which domains have been configured.
