Doubt on RTSM Topology integration in OBR

Hi Experts,

We have the following scenario in our environment and we are in a confusion of integrating Topology in OBR.
Kindly could you help in suggesting which server needs to be integrated in OBR for topology.
Also we are using a "ZEN software Load balancer" for RTSM.
OMI is on Application Failover

1) HP OMi GW1
2) HP OMi GW2
3) HP OMi DPS1
4) HP OMi DPS2
5) Zen Load Balancer for OMi(Software load balancer)

Kindly help me to understanding the scenario

What does the OBR documentation call "the virtual IP address of the load balancer"? It's a vague definition to say the least.

First of all, why virtual IP address, and not virtual name? Also load balanced BSM/OMi systems have 2 different virtual names configured - one for user access (with stickiness by session), another for data collectors (with round robin). So which one is OBR designed to use?


Yes, the documentation could use some examples. I think most of my official enhancement requests for OBR/SHR are for documentation updates, in fact. 😉

For instance, for a BSM VIP, use FQDN:

However, in your environment I would think that the user access VIP would be the best target.

All OBR Views have been deployed via BSM/OMi Package Manager?
