OBM Server Monitoring Dashboards

Jump to solution

I have installed OBM Server Monitoring 2.21 on OBM 2018.05.  I see in the content pack definition 5 dashboards, but none show up as pages in OBM, nor are they listed if I create a new page and look at the listed dashboards.

I went through the directions again, but I didn't see anything obvious that I missed.  I restarted the server, but no change.  Do the OMi Server Health, -DPS, Summary, OMi Event Pipeline Statistics, OMI RTSM Health DPS xml files exist on my server system, from whiich I can manually load them?

Thanks,
Mel

Go into Perfromance Perspective and select the OMi Deployment view. Click on the Gateway and DPS nodes in that view and see if you have data.

Those Dashboards are part of the performance perspective. Not available individually. You can do some play under Administration --> Operation Console --> Performance Dashboard mapping.

It would be nice if Micro Focus supplied a document explaining all the graphs, charts and statistics to provide some explanations and provide some warning that there could be problem and where to check.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Mel,

This is the extent of documentation around the OBM Server Self-Monitoring performance dashboards:

The PDF in the content - OBM Server Monitoring Contrib Readme_2.21.pdf - includes a list of the Performance Dashboards it provides, which type of CI they are found under and the list of metrics displayed in the charts.

The event pipeline steps are described withing the respective performance dashboard as an embedded html.

Carol,

Thanks.  Not your fault, but pretty graphs and charts, without information on what it really means, what should set off red flags and how to fix the problem, are just pretty grachs and charts.

Hi Mel,

The threshold monitoring policies will generate events if certain thresholds are exceeded (eg JVM Heap, num of events or num of history lines etc in the DB, or duplicate nodes, etc) and provide instruction text, so you could start there (ie, check the measurement threshold policy content). 

The metrics on which they are based are visible in Performance Dashboard so you can see the values over time to (a) understand what is normal for your environment so you can recognise what is not normal later, and (b) if a problem occurred, check this same data.  For example, the most common things to look at in troubleshooting are:

"JVM Heap Utilization" chart (in the "OMi Server Health" dashboard) - If it gets consistently high (eg 90%) then you should increase the heap for that JVM.

"Event Pipeline Steps Last Time (ms)" chart (in the "OMi Event Pipeline Statistics" dashboard) - If event processing is slow, see which steps in the event pipeline are taking the longest time.  If they are the EPI steps (called PipelineEntry, ResolutionCompleted, PipelinExit), then you would investigate your EPI scripts and associated filters to see if they could be optimised.

Hope that helps,
CP.
