Chapter 3. Extended Package

The extended package adds the capabilities that are necessary to monitor events on multiple systems at a site and to generate enhanced reports.

Multiple System Monitoring

The extended package adds the capabilities to monitor multiple systems at a site by including a System Group Manager (SGM). The system selected as the group manager runs the SGM, which manages the group and acts as the SEM for the system that is the group manager.

The SGM provides functionality to uniformly manage multiple systems when more than one system is installed at a site. Specifically, it performs the following functions:

  • System group event tracking

  • System group configuration management

  • System group availability monitoring

  • Notification (based on the events that occur on systems in the group)

Any system within a system group can be designated the group manager (it is possible to have more than one group manager). A system that is designated as the group manager monitors all systems in the group as well as itself.

Figure 3-1 provides a block diagram of system group management.

Enhanced Reporting

In the extended package, an enhanced report generator adds the capability to generate reports for groups of systems. It can generate the following reports for groups of systems:

  • Availability metrics (MTBI, availability, etc.) at a site level and individual system level

  • Site event reports:

    • By host

    • By event CLASS

    • By event TYPE
