Connecting to Local Analyst
WVP E also offers connection to an in-house subsystem (i.e., Local Analyst) which can maintain a lifelong history of system performance data. To configure WVP E to connect to Local Analyst, the below parameter needs to be updated.
- Navigate to the OSS location where the WVP E UI files are installed.
By default, the path is set to /usr/tandem/wvpe. To find this information, logon to My Nonstop, click on ‘Status Detail’ button for Web ViewPoint Enterprise installed instance. This opens a new window that includes the OSS location detail.
- Edit the host.json file in the data folder /usr/tandem/wvpe/assets/data.
- Update the ‘cloudLink’ parameter to match that of the Local Analyst URL.
Ex: “cloudLink”: “https://10.1.1.122”
- For Local Analyst, go to Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager on Windows Server. Make sure that the Website set up for Local Analyst here has a Self-Signed Certificate.
Create a Self-Signed Certificate using the Actions panel on the right of the screen here for your Local Analyst website, if not done already.
Once done, go to “Sites” from the Connections panel on the left of the screen. Click on “Bindings” from the Action Panel on the right of the screen.
Verify Bindings – Click on LocalAnalyst in left pane then click on Bindings in the right pane. If no binding is present, click on Add and enter the information mentioned below:
Add the following and click OK.
- Type: https
- Port: Default is 443
This should set up your Local Analyst on a self-signed HTTPS certificate.
Go to your main browser on your local machine where you access your Web ViewPoint Enterprise. In a new tab, go to your Local Analyst IP address using https. For example, type “https://<your-local-analyst-ip>/” in your browser address bar and accept the certificate prompt.
Click on “Advanced” here and click on “Proceed to <your-local-analyst-ip>” and accept the certificate.
Change the “CodeBehind” to “CodeFile” in C:\Program Files (x86)\Local Analyst\Local Analyst Services\Website\NSLiveLogOn.aspx and then restart the LA Webserver.
- Now launch the WVP E URL in any browser and logon.
- In the Summary Page, click on the cloud icon on the toolbar for any NonStop Server to access all historical data spanning years. Enter the Local Analyst username and password to connect.
If your Local Analyst password is previously entered, then you will securely and automatically be logged into Local Analyst and see activities of your system in full detail. You then have access to all historical data LA maintains and may use all its features.
