9Release Notes for v2.8.01

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

Release Notes for v2.8.01

What's NewThis version of EMC Networker KM for PATROL is now fully compatible with NetWorker v8.x.

New parameters available:

NSRClientExecTime was added to the NSR_CLIENT_CONTAINER application class.

NSRDaemonExecTime was added to the NSR_DAEMON_CONTAINER application class.

NSRDatabaseExecTime was added to the NSR_DATABASE_CONTAINER class.

NSRLogExecTime was added to the NSR_LOG_CONTAINER class.

NSRGroupExecTime was added to the NSR_POLICY_CONTAINER class.

NSRSaveGrpExecTime was added to the NSR_JOB_CONTAINER class.

NSRRequestExecTime was added to the NSR_MOUNT_CONTAINER class.

NSRJukeboxExecTime was added to the NSR_LIBRARY_CONTAINER class.

NSRDeviceExecTime was added to the NSR_DEVICE_CONTAINER class.

NSRPoolExecTime was added to the NSR_POOL_CONTAINER class.

Changes and ImprovementsAll configuration menus (KM commands) support regular expressions. For example, the Groupconfiguration menu can be used for disabling all "test" groups, which will also stop monitoringtheir save groups.

Fixed IssuesA compatibility issue prevented the KM to operate when the Agent was run with the PATROL ConfigCache support.

On Windows platforms, a warning occurred due to a command error in the login status parameter (NSRLoginStatus). The problem is solved now and the commands are executed to set thefollowing parameters correctly: NSRServerSummary, NSRMonitorRAP &NSRAdministratorChange.

An error in setting the parameters for Process Count, Memory Size, CPU Utilization & CPUDuration is now corrected. On UNIX platforms, daemon collector command & arguments weremodified to return only the relevant daemon lines from the process list.

10Overview

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

Overview

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL monitors your EMC Networker application within a centralizedmanagement console to ensure its runs efficiently 24 hours a day.

The KM more especially monitors the:

Server availability: status of all the processes.

Log files: monitoring of the daemon.log and messages files, size, etc.

Pending Media Events: monitoring of the media mount requests

Bootstrap Messages: bootstrap settings verification, recommendations, etc.

Client Indexes: number of entries, utilization as a percentage and index size.

Devices: status of mounted volumes and history of volume mounts.

Save Groups and Save Sets: status, progress, size and duration

All the information collected is grouped into application classes and displayed in the PATROL Console.Alarms and warnings inform you when a suspicious behavior is detected; thus allowing you to quicklyand clearly identify peaks, troughs and trends in the performance of your backup resources.

Refer to the Reference Guide for more information about the application classes.

Changes to EMC NetWorker

It is required to set-up a save group log file on all managed systems on Unix platforms. This file can beused by the NSR KM to collect save group information efficiently. The save group log file can beconfigured in EMC NetWorker using the steps below.

1. Open the EMC NetWorker Administrator GUI, and select Customize > Notifications

2. Select View > Details to see all details of a notification

3. Click Create and fill out the form as below:Name: NSR KM savegroup logging

Comment: Required notification for NSR KM

Action: cat >> /nsr/logs/savegrp.log

Event: Savegroup

Priority: Info, Warning, Critical, Emergency,

Notice, Waiting, Alert

4. Click Apply.

The NSR KM will process the contents of EMC NetWorker messages file (/nsr/logs/messages) in the absence of abovesave group log file (/nsr/logs/savegrp.log).

The above save group log file set-up is not required on W indows managed nodes because it is one of the standardEMC NetWorker log files.

12Preparing for Installation

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

The NSR KM will not maintain or recycle this save group log file. It is recommended to recycle the save group log fileregularly .

Changes to BMC PATROL

To improve the performance of the NSR KM, the PATROL Agent tuning variable /AgentSetup/AgentTuning/pslInstructionMax should be increased to at least 5,000,000. This applies for all EMCNetWorker servers and storage nodes where the KM is installed. This adjustment will allow the KM datacollectors to execute without incurring an internal scheduling delay.

This PATROL Agent tuning variable can be updated using wpconfig (on Microsoft Windows) or xpconfig(on Unix). Alternatively, you can use the following single line PSL command through the PATROLConsole OS> prompt to update this tuning variable.

%PSL v="/AgentSetup/AgentTuning/pslInstructionMax";

if(get(v)<5000000){pconfig("REPLACE",v,5000000);}

In large EMC NetWorker systems, the value of 5,000,000 for the tuning variable pslInstructionMax may still beinsufficient. In such situations, error messages will appear on the PATROL Console System Output W indow (SOW)reporting that some NSR KM data collectors are in an infinite loop. In this case you can set the tuning variable to zeroto disable this functionality .

The KM stores all configuration information in the PATROL Agent configuration database (pconfig),under paths /NSR and /Runtime/NSR. PATROL Agent user (default: patrol) should be able to read andwrite to these pconfig variables at anytime. If Access Control List (ACL) is used to control which usersare authorized to connect to a PATROL Agent, please ensure that the mode for PATROL Agent userincludes “C” in the PATROL Agent variable /AgentSetup/accessControlList. Please refer thePATROL Agent Reference Manual for more details.

You cannot copy or distribute these KM configuration variables between managed nodes, because they may nothave the same value for each managed node. For example, the KM user login details may not be the same for allmanaged nodes. A lso some of these variables, like installation paths, are set automatically during the initialdiscovery .

Additional Software Requirements

Purpose Software Version

When running NSR KM with sudo user account onSolaris, HP-UX, AIX or Linux managed nodes

Sudo (superuser do) 1.6.7 or later

When running NSR KM on Linux managed nodes Korn shell binary (/bin/ksh) Any

When running NSR KM on Microsoft Windows x64managed nodes

Reg.exe patch KB948698(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948698)

Any

The Microsoft Windows x64 Reg.exe patch, KB948698 is required to allow access to 64-bit registrykeys from PATROL Agent. Access the above patch site from the managed node to obtain the correctpatch for that platform.

13Preparing for Installation

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

Security RequirementsBy default, EMC NetWorker is installed and run as the root user (on Unix) or as administrator user (onMicrosoft Windows). EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL needs to be run as a user account withadministrative privileges to read and execute EMC NetWorker application programs and file systems.Login details of this user are configured in the NSR KM during the KM configuration. The password isstored in the PATROL Agent in a DES encrypted format.

The encrypted password can be viewed by any user who has access to the PATROL Agentconfiguration variables (pconfig). This user could then execute PSL statements using the encryptedpassword through the PATROL Console. This can be prevented by setting up an appropriate AccessControl List (ACL) for users. Please refer to the PATROL Agent Reference Manual for details on howto set up an ACL.

One of the following user accounts can be used for configuring the login details of the KM:

1. root user (Unix) or administrator user (Microsoft Windows)

2. a non-root user, such as patrol, with sudo privileges on EMC NetWorker to execute applicationprograms and access the file systems (Unix only)

3. a non-root (Unix) or non-administrator (Microsoft Windows) account, such as patrol, configured inEMC NetWorker application to administer the EMC NetWorker application

Refer to the EMC NetWorker System Administrator’s Guide for details on how to set up this type of account.

Access Permissions

The NSR KM user needs “read & execute” permission to executable and library files under the pathslisted below. The EMC NetWorker installation path INSTALL_PATH is normally /nsr or /opt/networker (on Unix) or C:\Program Files\nsr (on MS Windows).

Unix Microsoft Windows

INSTALL_PATH/bin INSTALL_PATH\bin

INSTALL_PATH/lib

/usr/bin

/usr/sbin

/usr/sbin/nsr

/usr/lib/nsr

/etc/LGTOuscsi

If the KM is enabled to failover in a clustered environment, the login user needs execute permissions tothe following cluster commands:

14Preparing for Installation

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

/opt/VRTSvcs/bin/hagrp (in Veritas Cluster Server)

vxdctl (in Veritas Cluster File System)

/usr/cluster/bin/clrg (in Oracle Solaris Cluster)

C:\Windows\sysnative\cluster (in Microsoft Cluster)

The EMC NetWorker KM includes some scripts which should be executable by the PATROL Agent userand the NetWorker KM user. These scripts are stored under KM_HOME path, normally PATROL_HOME/lib/NSR.

To list all OS commands used by the NSR KM, execute the following PSL code from the PATROLConsole, using PSL Task menu, after installing and loading the KM.

i=0; sudoers="";

foreach var (grep("^/Runtime/NSR/CommandControls/",pconfig("LIST")))

{

ctl=get(var);

opt=ntharg(grep("Option",ctl),"2-"," =");

nsa=ntharg(grep("NoSudoAttempt",ctl),"2-"," =");

sua=ntharg(grep("SingleUserAttempt",ctl),"2-"," =");

typ=ntharg(grep("CommandType",ctl),"2-"," =");

cmd=nthargf(grep("CommandText",ctl),"2-","=","=");

if((typ == "")||(typ == "OS"))

{

met="";

if(opt == "NoLogin") { met = "(run as patrol user)"; }

elsif(nsa == "YES") { met = "(run as configured user without sudo)"; }

elsif(sua == "YES") { met = "(run as supplied user - used in menu)"; }

else

{

scmd=cmd;

s=index(scmd,"%sudo");

if(s) { scmd=replace(substr(scmd,s,length(scmd)),"%sudo",""); }

sudoers=union(sudoers,ntharg(ntharg(scmd,1,"|"),"1-"," "," "));

}

printf("(%2d) %-30s %-40s: %s\n",i++,ntharg(var,"5","/"),met,cmd);

}

}

printf("\n\nCommands used with sudo:\n%s",sort(sudoers));

The PATROL Agent user (normally patrol) needs “read & execute” permission to following paths andfiles:

Unix Microsoft Windows

INSTALL_PATH/res INSTALL_PATH\res

INSTALL_PATH/index INSTALL_PATH\index

INSTALL_PATH/mm INSTALL_PATH\mm

INSTALL_PATH/logs/daemon.log INSTALL_PATH\logs\daemon.log

INSTALL_PATH/logs/messages INSTALL_PATH\logs\messages

INSTALL_PATH/logs/summary INSTALL_PATH\logs\summary

INSTALL_PATH\logs\savegrp.log

15Preparing for Installation

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

/var/adm/messages (on Solaris)

/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log (on HP-UX)

To access files under above paths the relevant user needs “read & execute” permission to all parent directories.

If a monitored log file cannot be read by the PATROL Agent user, it will be copied to KM_TEMP pathusing the configured KM login account, and processed by the PATROL Agent user. On completion, thecopied log file will be removed. This may increase the file system usage under KM_TEMP temporarilyduring this activity.

On Windows platforms the EMC NetWorker installation is identified by checking the Windows Registry.Depending on whether you are using a 32/64-bit OS and/or 32/64-bit Application, the Registry entriesare stored in different locations:

“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Legato\NetWorker\” and “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Legato\NetWorker\”.

Sudo User for Operating System Access

If a non-root user with sudo privileges is preferred as the NSR KM user, configure the account as asudoer through the visudo utility using code appropriate for your platform as detailed below. This usershould be able to execute NetWorker commands and OS commands.

The code below also applies to all non-root users who may execute NSR KM administration and reportmenu commands using their sudo privileges. The NSR KM accepts any non-root user with the followingsudo configuration in the sudoers file. Please replace user1, user2, user3 with appropriate KM username. The EMC NetWorker installation path INSTALL_PATH, referenced below is normally /nsr or /opt/networker and PATROL_HOME is the path where the PATROL Agent is installed (including thetarget, like /opt/bmc/Patrol3/Solaris29-sun4/).

On Solaris:

User_Alias NSRKMUSERS = user1, user2, user3

Defaults:NSRKMUSERS !lecture,!authenticate,\

env_keep+="LD_LIBRARY_PATH INSTALL_PATH KM_HOME KM_TEMP",env_reset

NSRKMUSERS ALL=/bin/*,/sbin/*,/usr/bin/*,/usr/sbin/*,\

/usr/sbin/nsr/*,/etc/LGTOuscsi/*\

INSTALL_PATH/bin/*,\

PATROL_HOME/lib/NSR/*,PATROL_HOME/bin/*

user1, user2, user3 must be replaced with username(s) used by the KM; INSTALL_PATH and PATROL_HOME with therelevant paths.

On HP-UX:

User_Alias NSRKMUSERS = user1, user2, user3

Defaults:NSRKMUSERS !lecture,!authenticate,\

env_keep+="SHLIB_PATH INSTALL_PATH KM_HOME KM_TEMP",env_reset

user1, user2, user3 must be replaced with username(s) used by the KM; INSTALL_PATH and PATROL_HOME with therelevant paths.

This non-root sudo user configured in the KM will be able to execute root equivalent commands byopening a shell window. To prevent this, ensure this user is only used within the KM and not madepublic for general use.

Entering the non-root sudo user with ‘Use Sudo’ option selected in to the KM login configurationdialog, before updating the sudoers file, will generate sudo errors. Also if the sudo user is configureddifferently, the KM may run sudo commands using incorrect sudo settings, which will expose thesudo user password.

Disk Space RequirementsEMC NetWorker KM for PATROL requires approximately:

3 MBytes disk space on each monitored PATROL Agent system

5 MBytes disk space on each PATROL Console system

400 KBytes disk space on each PATROL Central Console Server system

1 MBytes disk space on each PATROL Central Web Server system

The NSR KM is installed under the PATROL installation path.

When monitoring a standard installation of EMC NetWorker using NSR KM, the PATROL Agent willgenerate approximately 250 KBytes of history data per day. An enterprise installation of EMC NetWorkeron a server with multiple storage nodes, clients, jukeboxes, and standalone devices will generate morehistory data (as per other KMs used by the PATROL Agent). These history data files are recycled byPATROL depending on the PATROL Agent history retention period.

During NSR KM data collection, it will use a temporary folder (KM_HOME/tmp) to store some temporaryfiles. These temporary files are removed at the end of the data collection cycle. Required space under

17Preparing for Installation

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

this file system depends on the complexity of the EMC NetWorker environment. If the available space forthis folder is less than 10 MBytes, it can be changed to a different file system, which has sufficient diskspace. This can be achieved by replacing the temporary folder, KM_HOME/tmp, with a soft linkpointing to a different file system, like /tmp. This new temporary folder should have read, write andexecute permissions for both PATROL Agent user and the NSR KM login user.

Getting the BMC Software Installation UtilityIn order to install EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL, you need the latest version of the BMC SoftwareInstallation Utility.

PATROL Console

PATROL Central

The PATROL Agent can also be configured to automatically preload the KM.

Loading the KM

This section provides instructions to load EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL on Microsoft Windows andUnix platforms.

Before you load the NSR KM, you must install the KM on PATROL Console and PATROL Agent systems.

37Installing the KM

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

Preparing to Load the KM

1. Start the PATROL Console and update the connection to all PATROL Agent systems where the NSRKM is installed.

2. Check the value of the PATROL Agent tuning variable, /AgentSetup/AgentTuning/pslInstructionMax, and if necessary, increase it

Loading the KM on PATROL Console

1. From the PATROL Console menu bar, choose File>Load KM...

2. Select the NSR_LOAD.kml file, and click Open or OK. The NSR KM will be loaded to the PATROLConsole, and all connected PATROL Agents will start discovering the EMC NetWorker environment.If the automatic discovery successfully finds the EMC NetWorker server/storage node installation, NSR_SETUP instance will be instantiated,

This automatic discovery may take up to 5 minutes to instantiate the NSR_SETUP instance. Look for anyerror messages on the PATROL Console System Output Window (SOW) during the initial discovery.

3. Select File>Save Configuration to save the new list of loaded KM files as the PATROL Consoleuser preference.

4. Repeat the above steps on each PATROL Console.

Loading the KM on PATROL Central

1. Right click on the PATROL Main Map, and choose Load Knowledge Modules... A wizard box willdisplay a list of all managed systems.

2. Select the managed systems where the NSR KM is to be loaded, and click Next>. The wizard willdisplay a list of all available .kml files for the managed systems you selected.

3. Select the NSR_LOAD.kml file for each managed system, click Next> and Finish.

If you cannot find the NSR_LOAD.kml file in the wizard list for any system you selected, then the KM has not beeninstalled on that system.

The NSR KM will be loaded to the PATROL Central Console Server, and all connected selected managedsystems will start discovering the EMC NetWorker environment. If the automatic discovery successfullyfinds the EMC Networker installation, the NSR_SETUP instance will be instantiated.

This automatic discovery may take up to 5 minutes to instantiate the NSR_SETUP instance. Look for any errormessages on the PATROL Central System Output W indow (SOW) during the initial discovery .

4. Repeat the above steps for each PATROL Central Management Profile where NSR KM is to beunloaded.

38Installing the KM

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

Configuring PATROL Agent to Preload the KM

To configure PATROL Agent to preload the KM:

1. In order to enable EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL to operate all the time, without a PATROLConsole connection, the KM should be added to the PATROL Agent configuration variable /AgentSetup/preloadedKMs. This can be achieved on the EMC NetWorker instance by using themenu Configuration>Preloading.

2. Select Add to add the KM files to the list of preloaded KMs. If the NSR KM is successfully added tothe list, an acknowledgement will be displayed.

The same menu is used to remove the NSR KM files from the preloaded KMs list.

Unloading the KMThis section describes the procedures for unloading (not uninstalling) the NSR KM from the PATROLAgent, PATROL Console or PATROL Central Console. The intention is that this section is only used if youno longer want to use some parts of the KM, though there may be circumstances where you may wishto fully unload the KM without uninstalling the files.

When the NSR KM is unloaded from a PATROL Agent, PATROL stops monitoring the EMC NetWorkerapplication on that system when there is no connection to a PATROL Console with NSR KM loaded.

When the NSR KM is unloaded from PATROL Console, the PATROL Console stops displaying andmonitoring the EMC NetWorker application on any PATROL Console connected system.

Unloading the KM from the PATROL Agent

To unload the KM from the PATROL Agent:

1. Remove the NSR KM from the list of preloaded KMs using the menu Configuration>Preloadingfrom the EMC NetWorker instance. Alternatively, using the utility wpconfig (on MicrosoftWindows) or xpconfig (on Unix), remove NSR_LOAD.kml from the PATROL Agent configurationvariable /AgentSetup/preloadedKMs.

2. Restart the PATROL Agent.

3. Repeat these steps on every PATROL Agent system (managed node) where the NSR KM is to beunloaded.

The NSR KM cannot be partially unloaded from the PATROL Agent using the above steps. If you need to unload someparts of the KM from the PATROL Agent, refer to the PATROL Agent Reference Manual.

Unloading the KM from the PATROL Console

Application classes are unloaded individually. This allows for a partial unloading of the KM to enable it torun as a reduced installation.

To unload the NSR KM completely or partially:

39Installing the KM

Performing Post-Installation OperationsIt is recommended to perform post installation checks once the KM is installed and loaded on thePATROL Console to ensure it properly operates. Post-installation operations include:

Configuring the KM user account

Verifying:

the application discovery

the instance limits

the initial setup

Restarting the PATROL Agent and PATROL Console.

Configuring the KM User AccountA user account with administrative privileges must be configured in BMC PATROL to read and executeEMC Networker application programs and file systems. Depending on the operating systems used,several options will be available.

On Unix platforms, you can use the following user accounts:

a root user

a non-root user, such as patrol, that has sudo privileges on EMC Networker to execute applicationprograms and access file systems

a non-root account, such as patrol, configured in the EMC Networker application to administer theEMC Networker application.

On Windows platforms, you can use the following user accounts:

an administrator user

a non-administrator account, such as patrol, configured in the EMC Networker application toadminister the EMC Networker application.

4. Click OK.

44Installing the KM

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

Checking the Initial Setup of the KMTo check the initial setup of the KM:

1. Check whether the discovered files and directory paths are correct, using the menu Configuration> Paths from the EMC NetWorker instance.

2. Check whether the discovered Node Type is correct using the menu Configuration > Node Typefrom the EMC NetWorker instance.

3. Check the InfoBoxes and Parameters of all the NSR KM instances and verify that they are setcorrectly.

4. Under each container instance, open all detail parameters (text parameters with names in theformat NSR<Object>Details), and check for error messages.

5. Check the new value of parameter NSRLoginStatus set after completion of all data collection. Ifeither is not in OK state, open the annotation point to determine the cause of the error.

6. After the KM has been running for at least an hour:

Right-click the KM main icon > KM commands > KM Status from the EMC Storage Managerinstance. A report is displayed, detailing information on the managed system. Check through thereport for any warnings or alarms. If any errors are found during any of the above steps(including any incorrect data in Infoboxes or any warnings or alarms in the KM Status report),determine the cause(s) and take steps to resolve these errors. You may need to refer to the UserGuide, or contact Technical Support, attaching the KM Status report.

If needed, click Save As Task to open the report in a task window. You could later save it as atext file or print it.

7. The KM installed on the storage node may monitor the same elements which are already monitoredthrough the server node. This may be unnecessary and can trigger duplicate alerts. You can disablethese components on either server or storage node by setting their instance limit to 0 (zero), usingthe menu Configuration> Instance Limits.

Restarting PATROL Agent and PATROL ConsoleRestarting the PATROL Agent and PATROL Console is optional but often a good practice to confirm thatthe NSR KM operates correctly after restarting the PATROL Agent and/or PATROL Console.

In addition, the PATROL Agent restart will force all KM discoveries and data collections to startimmediately.

2. Go through the Add an Adapter wizard to actually delete the monitor types that had been createdbased on the previous version of the KM

3. Close

4. Resume the entire Creating an Adapter for a BMC PATROL KM procedure

For complete and detailed information on these procedures, please refer to the BMC ProactiveNet documentationavailable from BMC Web site.

Importing and Customizing Thresholds1. Launch the BMC ProactiveNet PW Commands. On Windows 2008, you need to run the PW

Commands as Administrator.

2. Execute the following command line:pw adapter -type patrol -get_thresholds <file name> -pproxy_host <hostname|ipaddress>

-pproxy_port <port_number>] [-pproxy_user <username>] [-pproxy_passwd <password>] -i -v

where

-get_thresholds <file name> = File name with absolute path at which thresholds

will be imported

-pproxy_host <hostname|ipaddress> = Host name or IP Address of Patrol Proxy Server

47Integrating the KM

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

  -pproxy_port <port_number> = Port at which Patrol Proxy Agent communicates with Patrol

Proxy Server

  -pproxy_user <username> = User name of Patrol Proxy user

  -pproxy_passwd <password> = Password to authenticate Patrol Proxy user

  -i = import Instance level thresholds

  -v = run in "verbose" mode, producing extra lines of output during extraction and

conversion processes

The command has produced a text file with all the parameter threshold settings.

3. Open the file in a text editor. Check that the global thresholds have been properly interpreted.

4. Then go to the # INSTANCE LEVEL THRESHOLDS section of the file.

5. Uncomment all instance level thresholds for the _PATROL__NSR_ prefixed instances.

Search the file for the 'NOT_IMPLEMENTED' occurrences to detect thresholds that were not properlyconverted by the PATROL Adapter.

6. Save the file.

7. Execute the following command:pw threshold loadpatrolthreshold [<thresholdfilename> [-v]]

where:

  <thresholdfilename> is a thresholds file name. If no file path is specified

then the default '<Installation Directory>/pw/tmp/' is used

  -v  enables the Verbose mode

Class-level thresholds can be displayed using the Absolute Global Thresholds panel in the BMCProactiveNet Operator Console, while instance-level thresholds are displayed in the Absolute InstanceThresholds panel.

Managing Baselines and Key Performance IndicatorsIn order to facilitate the detection of abnormalities on your monitored environment, BMC ProactiveNetcalculates baselines per parameter (metrics or attributes) based on values collected over a specifiedperiod of time to determine a normal operating range. When the collected values for these parametersare out of range, an alert is triggered.

Some parameters are identified by default as Key Performance Indicators and therefore automaticallyincluded in the base lining calculation.

Managing baselines

The baseline is the expected normal operating range for a metric or attribute of a monitor.

The baseline is calculated by collecting the values for a monitor’s attributes and metrics over a specifiedtime period and establishing a low baseline value (consisting of the 10th percentile of all the values for agiven time period) and a high baseline value (consisting of the 90th percentile of all the values for agiven time period), taking a weighted average of these values over time. A higher weight is given to thelatest data being factored into the baseline average. The accuracy of the baseline improves over time.

48Integrating the KM

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

Requirements for baseline generation

For baselines to be generated for an attribute, that abnormality threshold means that the thresholdexists and is not suppressed. Additionally, if the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) mode is active, only those attributes that have anactive abnormality threshold and are also KPI attributes will have baselines generated for them.

Absolute thresholds (with "outside baseline") or signature thresholds do not satisfy these requirements.

Managing Key Performance Indicators

The KPI attribute of a parameter can be activated or deactivated manually through the BMC ProactiveNetAdministration Console. In this KM, some parameters or attributes have been designated as importantindicators of performance (KPIs). We do not recommend that these default settings are modified.

However, advanced users may activate or deactivate KPIs from the BMC ProactiveNet AdministrationConsole.

To add or remove Key Performance Indicator (KPI) attributes for amonitor type

1. In the Administration Console, from the menu bar, choose Tools > KPI Administration. TheKPI Administration dialog box is displayed.

2. From the Monitor Type list, choose the monitor type for which you want to add or remove KPIattributes. A list of attributes for the selected monitor type is displayed.

3. In the KPI column for the attributes that you want to add or remove as Key Performance Indicators:

select the KPI check box to add the corresponding attribute as a KPI

deselect the KPI check box to remove the corresponding attribute from the KPIs for that monitortype

For complete and detailed information on this procedure, please refer to the BMC ProactiveNet documentation availablefrom BMC Web site.

Parameters for which the system by default calculates baselines as well as parameters considered asKPIs are respectively identified by the following icons:

separate them with a colon (:).

5. Click OK.

If you want to rediscover the paths, empty all f ields, click OK, and restart the PATROL Agent.

Specifying the Node TypeYou may have to manually indicate the type of node monitored if the discovery fails to recognize it:

1. In the Console, right-click the EMC Networker instance > KM Commands > Configuration >Node Type

2. Select the node type

3. Click OK.

Configuring the Multi-Node Monitoring ModeIf the NSR KM environment is installed in a cluster using Veritas Cluster Server, Veritas Cluster FileSystem, Oracle Solaris Cluster, or Microsoft Cluster, the NSR KM must be installed on all the clusternodes to enable continuous monitoring and avoid single point of failure. To avoid duplicate alerts frommultiple nodes, it is recommended to configure the solution to operate in multi-node monitoring mode.

To configure the multi-node monitoring mode:

1. In the Console, right-click the EMC Networker instance > KM Commands Configuration >Monitoring Mode

Configuring the Multi-Node Monitoring Mode

52Monitoring your environment

2. Select Multi-node Mode

3. Select the appropriate Cluster Application

4. Indicate the Failover Group Name. Leave this field blank if you previously selected Veritas ClusterFile System. The NSR KM will then monitor the entire cluster from the active master system, whichis identified by the vxdctl -c mode command. This method requires vxconfigd in enable mode withits clustered state active.

5. Enable remote PATROL Agent Checking to check the monitoring status of the other nodes andclick Ok

6. Indicate all the information required to communicate with the remote PATROL Agent (authenticationserver, protocol, port number, and credentials)

7. Click Ok.

EMC NetWorker server will then be monitored through the online cluster node. The KM on offline nodewill monitor in passive mode, until NetWorker is failed over. In the passive mode the KM will monitoronly the NetWorker components that requires monitoring.

If a managed node is unable to determine the system which should be in A ctive Multi-node Mode, it will change toTemporary Single-node Mode.

Filtering Elements to MonitorBy default, the solution monitors all the elements discovered, which may represent an importantworkload to the agents and servers. Because the monitoring of some elements may be irrelevant forvarious reasons, you can apply filters to indicate which elements will be monitored or not.

To filter elements to monitor:

1. In the Console, right-click one of the following instances depending on the elements that you wishto monitor:

Clients > KM Commands > Configuration> Clients to filter clients to be monitored

Daemons > KM Commands > Configuration > Daemons to filter daemons to be monitored

Databases > KM Commands > Configuration > Databases to filter databases to bemonitored

Logs > KM Commands > Configuration>Logs to filter logs to be monitored. Only the dailymessages file will be monitored on AIX and Microsoft Windows platforms since there is no ASCIIformat system log file to monitor.

Groups > KM Commands > Configuration > Groups to filter groups to be monitored. Bydefault, only save groups that belong to these groups will be instantiated and monitored. You canhowever disable this direct relationship between monitored groups configuration and monitoredsave groups instances by running the following PSL through PATROL Console: %PSL pconfig("REPLACE","/NSR/FilterJobByPolicy", false);

Group Client > KM Commands > Configuration > Group Client to filter group clients to bemonitored

Jukeboxes > KM Commands > Configuration > Jukeboxes to filter jukeboxes to bemonitored

Standalone Devices > KM Commands > Configuration > Standalone Devices to filterstandalone devices to be monitored

Volume Pools > KM Commands > Configuration > Volume Pools to filter volume pools tobe monitored

Reload Commands Forces a reload of commands used by NSR KM during the next full discoverycycle. By default, all new commands are reloaded automatically.

Administration > Start Server/Storage Node

Starts server/storage node daemons.

Administration > Stop Server/StorageNode

Stops server/storage node daemons.

Configuration > Login Accesses the Login Configuration dialog for viewing and entering NSR KM logindetails for the operating system.This user account should have privileges to execute EMC NetWorkeradministration commands and can use sudo privileges on Unix PATROL Agents.This user account will be used by NSR KM pre-discoveries, discoveries, datacollectors, recovery actions, and InfoBoxes to execute operating systemcommands. It will not be used by any KM commands.The password is encrypted and stored on the PATROL Agent using the BMCPATROL encryption function.

Configuration > Preloading Accesses Preloading Configuration dialog, which adds or removes the KM fromPATROL Agent variable /AgentSetup/preloadedKMs.By preloading the NSR KM, the PATROL Agent will monitor the EMC NetWorkerapplication without any PATROL Console connection.

Configuration > Monitoring Mode Accesses the Monitoring Mode Configuration dialog, which is used forenabling or disabling KM failover, when monitoring VCS clustered EMC NetWorkerenvironment.

Configuration > Paths Accesses the Path Configuration dialog, which displays and sets all pathsused by NSR KM.Paths are automatically discovered by the NSR KM server discovery. They areused as environment variables for executing various EMC NetWorker applicationcommands. Altering these paths may impact the operation of the KM.

Binary paths are used as environment variables:

$PATH (on Unix)

%PATH% (on MS Windows)

Library paths are used as environment variables:

$LD_LIBRARY_PATH (on Solaris)

$SHLIB_PATH (on HP-UX)

$LIBPATH (on AIX)

Additional Information and Support

TroubleshootingRefer to the table below to diagnose any problems you may encounter when installing or running theEMC NetWorker KM for PATROL.

For any problem, look for error messages on the PATROL Console System Output W indow (SOW). Most errormessages are self-explanatory .

Most KM problems are reported in the KM Status Report, which can be v iewed by selecting the KM command KMStatus from the Legato NetWorker or NSR_SETUP icon. Run this report to diagnose any problems.

131Additional Information and Support

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

The NSR KM triggers PEM events for most severe problems. Each event triggered from the KM includes an ExpertAdv ice, which prov ides details about the problem and some suggestions to resolve it.

Problem Possible Resolution

Unable to find NSR_LOAD.kml

Check that the Load KM browser is looking for *.kml files under PATROL_HOME/lib/knowledge folder.

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL files have not been installed correctly under the PATROLinstallation directory on the PATROL Console.

NSR_SETUP icon does not appear after loading

Check whether this managed node is a supported EMC NetWorker node (server orstorage node), and it is configured properly.

Check that the version of EMC NetWorker is supported by EMC NetWorker KM forPATROL.

Check that there is no KM version mismatch between the PATROL Console and thePATROL Agent. Check the messages in the PATROL Console SOW to verify this.

Check whether the PATROL Agent tuning variable, /AgentSetup/AgentTuning/pslInstructionMax has been increased as suggested in Changes to BMC PATROL. Check the messages in the PATROL Console SOW.

Check whether the PATROL Agent user has necessary privileges added in the Agent’sAccess Control List (/AgentSetup/accessControlList) in order to read and writeto the Agent Configuration Database.

Parameter NSRLoginStatus is in suspicious (warning) status

This parameter will also show a “suspicious” state if any command executed by NSR KMfails.

Check the annotation point on the first state change data point of this parameter tolook for any failing commands. If an annotation point cannot be found, or if it is notup-to-date, check the KM Status Report, which can be viewed by selecting the KMcommand KM Status from the EMC NetWorker icon. These errors are produced fromthe EMC NetWorker commands executed by the NSR KM.

Check that the operating system user configured in the KM command Configuration> Login can execute all EMC NetWorker commands and access the EMC NetWorkerfiles.

All/some KM objects disappear from the Console

Check whether there is a KM version mismatch between the PATROL Console and thePATROL Agent, possibly after an improper upgrade of the KM. Check the messages inthe PATROL Console SOW to verify this.

Check that the NSR KM login details are still valid. Has the password changed on thesystem? Look for any error messages on the SOW, and check for additionalinformation in the last annotation point for parameter NSRLoginStatus.

Behavior of the NSR KM has notchanged in accordancewith theRelease Notes aftera KM upgrade

Check the version of the KM from the main InfoBox. If it has not changed, then theinstallation is not complete. Make sure both the PATROL Console and the PATROLAgent are uninstalled and installed correctly during the KM upgrade.

NSR KM takes a longtime to refreshthe parameters and application classes on the PATROL Console

Data collectors run according to their scheduling interval (polling cycle) defined in the KM.These intervals are defined for a standard environment with minimal resource impact.These intervals can be customized from the PATROL Developer Console to suit yourenvironment. Refer to the PATROL Console User Guide for more details.

Poor performance of the EMC

This happens if the NSR KM is installed on a heavily used system. Depending on the complexity of your EMC NetWorker environment,

132Additional Information and Support

Version 2.8.01

EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL

NetWorker server/storage node after installing the KM

the NSR KM may consume more resources to interrogate the application and process the data. In such a complex environment, the NSR KM may require some fine tuning to optimize the available resources. Consider the following options:

Disable monitoring of unnecessary application instances. This can be achieved byusing the appropriate KM command Configuration > <Component(s)>.

Increase the scheduling interval (polling cycle) for data collectors.

Deactivate unnecessary data collectors and associated application classes.

Deactivate unnecessary data collectors during selected time intervals, where thereare no EMC NetWorker activity. For example, if the save group monitoring can bedisabled between 9 am and 4 pm everyday, except weekends, then disable savegroup data collector (NSRSaveGrpCollector) during this period, using following PSLthrough PATROL Console:

%PSL pconfig("REPLACE","/NSR/NSRSaveGrpCollectorMode",

"0|32400|57600|0|0|||||||||||0|0");

Here the pconfig variable is named as: <collector name>Mode. The value containsfollowing details, delimited by pipe (|):enabled (1)/disabled (0) data collection, default start/end times in number of seconds since midnight, start/end times for non-default days starting fromSunday through to Saturday.

Purge unnecessary information in EMC NetWorker index databases and log files.

If there are too many clients configured in EMC NetWorker, the NSRClientCollectorand NSRGroupCollector may affect the overall performance. In such environmentdisable the NSRClientCollector, or set their instance limits to 0 (zero), using menuConfiguration > Instance Limits.

Defining a "no command execution window" for all collectors will pause runningcommands at peak times or during NetWorker maintenance windows. This can be setusing the PSL below:

%PSL pconfig("REPLACE", "/Runtime/NSR/noExecuteWindow",

"23:59:00|120"); %PSL unset("/NSR_SERVER/noExecuteEnd");

The value of this permanent configuration variable is in format “<start time inHH:MM:SS 24-hour clock>|<duration in seconds>”. The above “23:59:00|120” sets allcollectors to sleep between 23:59:00 and 00:01:00 (2 minutes) every day beforeexecuting commands.

Also this noExecutewindow supports multiple time windows:

%PSL pconfig("REPLACE", "/Runtime/NSR/noExecuteWindow",

["23:59:00|120","11:59:00|120"]);

Old active save groups are not removed from the console

By default, all active save groups are monitored, and they are exempted from ageing. It is possible to change this behaviour by using following PSL through PATROL Console:%PSL pconfig("REPLACE","/NSR/AgeActiveJobs", true);

Infinite Loop Errors(Error messages on the SOW reporting that some NSR KM datacollectors may be in an infinite loop)

Check the setting of the tuning variable /AgentSetup/AgentTuning/pslInstructionMax.

PATROL Agent uses the pre-configured tuning variable (/AgentSetup/AgentTuning/pslInstructionMax) to stop running PSL functions in an infinite loop. When a PSL functionreaches this maximum threshold, it reports this error, and puts the execution of thisfunction to the back of the process queue. This will not only delay the data collector, itwill also impact the performance of the system.

To resolve this situation, the maximum number of instructions should be increased to anoptimum value. This depends on the complexity of your environment. It is required thatthe default value of 500,000 should be increased to at least 5,000,000 on a standardEMC NetWorker environment to enable the NSR KM data collectors to execute withoutimpacting your system.

If this still does not resolve the problem, you can disable this

133Additional Information and Support

functionality by setting the value of the tuning variable to zero.

Unable to turn onthe KM Debug

If you are unable to turn on the KM Debug following the method described in Debuggingthe KM, you turn the debug on by setting appropriate PATROL Agent configurationvariable with a timestamp value. This timestamp value determines when the debugshould be turned off. For example, to turn on the debug for 60 minutes from now, runthe following PSL through PATROL Console:

%PSL pconfig("REPLACE","/NSR/<component>Debug",

time()+3600);

Where <component> is either server for debugging the server discovery or name of thecollector component in lower case followed by Collector, like daemonCollector fordebugging daemon collector.

Old acknowledged save groups are still kept in the pconfig database.

By default the KM stores all acknowledged save groups. Use the following PSL through PATROL Console to keep only the last <Number> of save groups:

%PSL pconfig("REPLACE",

"/NSR/NSR_JOB/jobAcknowledgementCapacity",

<Number>);
