Create new OVPA datasource and metrics

Hello All

 

We use OVPA  on some of our servers and when I run ovcodautil -obj, I am seeing following datasources are created by default,

 

SCOPE

CODA

 

Is it possible to create our own datasource and metrics

 

Datasource             :                       USER

Metric                       :                       LogonTime

Metric                       :                       LogoffTime

 

Please confirm.

Re: Create new OVPA datasource and metrics

You can create your own datasource , refer the Data Source Integration topic under the "HP Operations Agent - User Guide"

Re: Create new OVPA datasource and metrics

Thanks I created my own datasource and my own metric.

 

However while running ovcodautil -dumpds DATASOURCE, it lists only last instance value collected.

 

Is there any possibility of listing all instance data using ovcodautil -dumpds command or through any other ways.

 

I also noticed that scopeux, midaemon is not running on the node where new Datasource and metric has been created.

 

Agent version is 11.11.025

Re: Create new OVPA datasource and metrics

The ovcodautil -dumpds command will only show you the last collection interval values.

 

If you want to see more than that, you can use "/opt/perf/bin/extract -xp -b FIRST -e LAST -C <data class> -f <output_file>"

 

You can restart the midaemon and scopeux processes by running /opt/perf/bin/ovpa restart all.

Re: Create new OVPA datasource and metrics

You may use the command suggested by 

 

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/OV-Performance-Management-Forum/How-to-extract-process-detail-from-OVPA...

 

I have attached the same log file once again for your reference  ..

 

In the attached log file , I have taken the Unix machine as an example you may use the same method for the Windows Agents as well :
