reason for BSMC 10.01 Generic Output policies?
In the update to BSMC 10.01 there are new Gerneric Output policies. What is the reason for these? How would you consume this data in OMi 10? What were the requirments that drove this?
The main idea behind the generic output policies is to make BSMC 10 a generic data integration platform. When data consumer doesn't expect to receieve data in the form of events or metrics, there is no need for BSMC to produce events or metrics out of the raw data. That means the generic output policy only makes sense together with the data forwarding policy which can transform the data received from the generic output policy into XML or JSON formats and forward it to the data receiver. Examples of such data receiver would be BVD (supported already), SHR or OpsA (support is planned to be added later), or any other receiver capable to accept XML or JSON input.
