Shadowbase Monitor Installation

You may now integrate metrics from your Shadowbase application on to Web ViewPoint Enterprise (WVP E) using My NonStop. Shadowbase 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 Shadowbase 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 Shadowbase 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 Shadowbase Monitor.

You can make your desired changes to Startup Parameters and Configure Params alongside Objects and Metrics now. Make sure to assign unique Startup processes, that the Shadowbase Monitor will be using.

Then set up the Configure Params. Make sure to configure the Collector and Consumer Process names of the Shadowbase application running on your NonStop. If you have multiple Collector and Consumer processes you can configure them here by using a comma separated value. You can also configure other params here such as sample measure parameter file, queue manager process name, and sample interval.

After that, you can choose to collect the Shadowbase Collector & Consumer 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 Shadowbase Monitor on Web ViewPoint Enterprise. You may choose which Shadowbase 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.
