ManageEngine® Applications Manager
Under the Performance polling tab, you can see performance data collection options like:
Using this option, Performance Data collection can be scheduled for the given number of polls. Except for Availability check and health, other performance parameters like memory usage data can be collected at the scheduled number of polls. This would be helpful in decreasing the load on the system of the users who want to monitor availability and health alone.
For eg., If the polling interval of a particular server monitor is one minute and the performance data is scheduled to be collected once in five pollings. In this case, the availability of the server is checked every minute whereas the performance data like CPU Memory is collected every five minutes.
Disk I/O Statistics Monitoring: Using this option, Disk IO Stats can be Enabled or Disabled for the servers. On enabling the option, Data Collection will happen for Disk IO stats and you can see the details of Disk IO Stats in the Server details page. If it is not enabled, Data Collection will be stopped for Disk IO Stats.
Note: This option is available for Windows, IBM AIX, Linux and Solaris servers.
Disk Monitoring: Windows Disk Monitoring option can be used to enable or disable monitoring of Local Disk, Network Mapped Drives and Volume Mount Points. By default, Local Disk monitoring is enabled for all windows servers
Note: Details associated with Windows Network Mapped drives and Windows Volume Mount Points will not be collected in SNMP mode.
Process & Service monitors availability: You can also set the Process & Service monitors availability to show process and server monitors as down when the server is down.
Server Error Alert Settings: Server Error Alert settings option will allow you to select the severity levels of server error at which you want to get alerted.
Hardware Health monitoring: Server Hardware Health monitoring can be used to enable or disable hardware monitoring in servers. You can also opt the various hardware components (like power, fan, disk,etc.,) to be monitored by checking the options given. This will globally configure the hardware monitoring status.You can do the same for individual monitors in the respective monitor details page.
Hardware Device level configuration: Hardware Configuration option is also available under Host Details in the right hand side of the details page, will allow you to opt for the various hardware components you want to monitor. You can also use this option to change the globally configured hardware status for a particular server.
You can customize alerts for hardware device monitoring. If the status of the device matches with the values defined in the severity text box, then the device status is displayed as the corresponding severity. For example, the nonCriticalLower status need not be defined as a Warning status, it can also be defined as Clear according to user requirement. The alarm severities are:
Critical Severity: If the status matches with any of the values defined in the Critical Severity text box, then APM displays the status of the hardware device as Critical.
The values defined by default are failed, error, failure, nonRecoverable, criticalUpper, criticalLower, nonRecoverableLower and critical.
Warning Severity: If the status matches with any of the values defined in the Warning Severity text box, then APM displays the status of the hardware device as Warning.
The values defined by default are degraded, warning, nonCritical, nonCriticalUpper, nonRecoverableUpper and nonCriticalLower.
Clear Severity: If the status matches with any of the values defined in the Clear Severity text box, then APM displays the status of the hardware device as clear.
The value defined by default is 'ok'.
Note: If the status of the device does not match with any of the values defined in the severity text box, the device status is displayed as unknown. Status values defined within the severity text boxes are comma-separated and case-insensitive.
Using this option, You can Enable or Disable Data
Collection for Wep Applications, EJBs and Servlet Statistics for Weblogic servers.
The list of Weblogic servers are displayed by selecting the checkbox. Data Collection
will happen for the Weblogic components that are displayed under the corresponding
By default, EJB and Servlet Data Collection are disabled.You can enable Data Collection for EJB and Servlet by selecting the Weblogic server from Disable list box and move it to the Enable listbox and save the configuration.
Using this option, You can Enable or Disable data collection for Scheduled jobs and Database backup.
By default, they are disabled.
Using this option, you can enable or disable data collection for database tables, to takes place Once in a Day.
By default, the data collection takes place for every polling.
You can Enable/Disable datacollection for Database Tables by selecting the "Collect Database tables information once in Day" checkbox and save the configuration.
Using this option, you can choose different SNMP versions(v1/v2c) to monitor the SNMP devices/ Servers in SNMP mode.
Using this option, you can change the various settings for HTTP(s) URL(s):
Checking the first opiton, will allow you to log the responses of the HTTP(s) URLs or HTTP(s) Sequences in \working\Debug-Info\URL Directory.
Enabling the second option, will send the alarms along with the link to the responses of the HTTP(s) URLs Sequences we are logging. The response will be send whenever the availability of the HTTP(s) URLs goes down.
Under the Web services Operation - Settings tab, you can set the Operation's Execution time beyond which to enable logging of responses for the Web Service's Operation in Applications Manager. The responses of the web services operations are logged in the following directory: working\Debug-Info\WebService Directory.
Applications Manager allows you to configure packets to be sent for ping monitoring.
Applications Manager allows you to enable/disable data collection of the metrics listed in the Optimize Data Collection tab. Once enabled, you can also customize the polling interval of these metrics.
Under the Optimize Data Collection tab, select the monitor type and the metric name that you want to enable/disable from the respective drop-down menus.
You can configure polling status by:
This will be the default polling status, for any new monitor added. All the monitors of this type, will have the default polling status, until any exclusive customization is done for the monitor.
Use this option to change the polling status of any particular monitor(s).
Changing the polling status of the 'Monitor Type', will also change any customizations done for its monitors.
