Installation and Configuration
You may now integrate metrics from your Base24 Monitor application on to Web ViewPoint Enterprise (WVP E) using My NonStop. Base24 Monitor Plugin can be easily installed using the Studio tab on My NonStop. You start by signing into your My NonStop application using the Group.User or alias who you setup as Manager during the installation. For more information on how to install My NonStop, visit How to Install and Configure My NonStop. After a successful logon, the Home Screen which is the Studio screen, lists the latest available Base24 Monitor version. You can simply download, install, and start the application on your NonStop server. Note that, installing Web ViewPoint Enterprise is mandatory to onboard Base24 Monitor Plugin. Before starting the installation process, you must have the Guardian and OSS installation locations of Web ViewPoint Enterprise ready. You will need this information for installing this plugin. To begin the installation, simply click on Install button to fetch the installation files from RA Studio and to upload to your NonStop server. This process may take several minutes. Next, a Pre-Installation screen is prompted for you to enter the details of Web ViewPoint Enterprise’s Install location. Once done, the installer goes ahead and unpaks the installation files for Base24 Monitor.
You can make your desired changes to Startup Parameters and Configure Params alongside Objects and Metrics now. Make sure to configure the Collector and Broker Process names of the Connex Monitor application running on your NonStop.
Then set up the Configure Params:
|Name||Description||Default Value||Required for|
|B24-NCPCOM-FILE||Location of PATHCOM file used to fetch BASE24 infrastructure metrics||$SYSTEM.SYSTEM.PATHCOM||Infrastructure (NCP) statistics|
|B24-NCPCOM-PATHMON-PROCESS||Specifies the Pathmon process associated with the BASE24 environment||$ZVPT||Infrastructure (NCP) statistics|
|B24-OPENING-COMMAND||Command use to connect to the PATHMON process||OPEN||Infrastructure (NCP) statistics|
|B24-SHELL-PROMPT-ROOT||Text that identifies the PATHCOM shell prompt||=||Infrastructure (NCP) statistics|
|B24-SHELL-PROMPT-ROOT-MORE||Text that indicates the PATHCOM more information||MORE||Infrastructure (NCP) statistics|
|B24-FILE-PATTERN||File pattern identifying the log files to be read by WVPE||$DEV01.B24DATA.PX||Transactions (PTLF) statistics|
After that, you can choose to collect the Base24 Objects and their corresponding Metrics. The data will then be collected for the chosen Metrics and will be available on Web ViewPoint Enterprise.
Once you press Install, the wizard proceeds with installing the product. Upon successful completion, it first asks you if you want to logon to RA Studio to receive a personalized Handbook consisting of all the configuration settings and details in it.
Upon successful registration and login to RA Studio, it downloads the Handbook. You can see all the changes that you made to all the configuration settings and parameters here besides the default values assigned initially.
After this, it asks you permission for starting the instance. Once the product is successfully started, you can start using Base24 Monitor on Web ViewPoint Enterprise.
You may choose which Base24 Monitor objects and metrics you would like to monitor and visualize on the Global Dash or set up any alert conditions and thresholds for various metrics and take automated action before things go wrong.
To make any changes in the future regarding the configuration parameters and settings, you can visit the Manage Section on your My NonStop and make the required changes on the installed products.
