cdm
CPU, Memory and Disk Monitor.

The cdm probe monitors CPU, disk and memory parameters to detect performance bottlenecks.
This component requires Nimsoft Robot 3.00 or newer.

Note

  • The 32-bit versions of this probe are unable to monitor TerraByte-sized disks.
  • When running this probe in a clustered environment, you should not set the flag /disk/fixed_default/active=yes since this will cause problems with the disks that appear and dissapear with the resource groups. This flag is unavailable through the GUI, and only reached through raw configure method or by directly modifying the cdm.cfg file.
  • Version 4.0x: Changed behaviour when running in a cluster together with cluster probe version 2.2x. The probe will receive information about cluster disk resources from the cluster probe and create monitoring profiles for these based on the 'fixed_default' settings. These profile are automatically registered with the cluster probe to ensure continous monitoring on cluster group failover. The cluster group is used as Alarm and Quality of Service source instead of the cluster node. Note: On upgrade, old monitoring profiles for the cluster disks are overriden with the new ones.


Installation notes

AIX 5.x:
The memory gathering routines use libperfstat , which must be installed. It is found in the bos.perf.perfstat and bos.perf.libperfstat filesets. To verify that you have the correct file-sets installed, you can run:

# lslpp -l | grep perf

This should give you something like this (versions may differ):
  bos.perf.libperfstat      5.1.0.35  COMMITTED  Performance Statistics Library
  bos.perf.perfstat         5.1.0.35  COMMITTED  Performance Statistics

If you do not see bos.perf.libperfstat and bos.perf.perfstat in the output from the command, you will need to install those file-sets.

6.71
08.09.2021

What's New:

  • Added support for monitoring a newly discovered disk instantly by CDM. Newly discovered mount-points/disks are monitored as soon as CDM discovers them.

To use this feature, you must make the following changes in any of these interfaces:

    • In IM through Raw Configure: 

Update the key ‘Monitor_Newly_Discovered_Disk_OnTheFly’ to 'yes'. By default, this is set to 'no'.

    • In Default Disk(s) (Enhanced) template (in MCS): 

Enable ‘Monitor Newly Discovered Disk at First Instance (On the Fly)’. By default, this is disabled.

    • In Admin Console: 

Enable ‘Monitor Newly Discovered Disk at First Instance (On the Fly)’. By default, this is disabled.

For the CDM and the Cluster probe integration: 

As a prerequisite, you must install the latest cluster probe version along with the CDM probe v6.70.  Make sure to set the following key/values in the cdm.cfx file under the <fixed default> section.

      • 'active = yes'
      • 'Monitor_Newly_Discovered_Disk_OnTheFly = yes'
  • Added support to allow the custom values in all QoS Interval fields for the CDM probe (MCS Templates). 'QoS Interval' field label is renamed to 'QoS Intervals (Number of Intervals)'. This field allows values in the range of 1 to 999.

Fixed Defects:

  • Fixed an issue where incorrect shared disk (Used and Free disks) size is shown in IM GUI. Support case 32672121.
  • Fixed an issue with the cluster probe, related to the new drives. Whenever any new drives are added, not only those drives are discovered but also enabled/activated. Support case 32475320.
  • Fixed an issue with the new drives/mount points getting added and are auto discovered and monitored. Support case 20304402, 20103461, and 20187228.
  • Fixed an issue where the disk size was showing incorrect on IM GUI when the disk size is in TB and float number(Non integer fractional number) (Ex : actual value is 1.5TB but it shows as 2TB). Support case 32621269.
  • Fixed an issue where the metric disk free is showing negative value (-21474836.48) in alarm message when the disk size is too large. Support case 32598885.
