To enable display in the Unified Manager web UI of performance issues discovered by a Performance Manager server, you must configure a connection between that server and Unified Manager in the Performance Manager maintenance console.
Before you begin
- You must have created a local user with Event Publisher privileges on the Unified Manager in the connection you want to create.
- You must have an authorized login ID.
- Performance Manager, if installed as a virtual appliance, requires you have a user ID and password authorized to log in to the maintenance console of the Performance Manager server for which you want to display performance data in the Unified Manager web UI.
- You must be prepared to specify the following information about Unified Manager:
- Unified Manager server name or IP address
- Unified Manager server port (must always be 443)
- Event Publisher user name (the name of the local Unified Manager user assigned Event Publisher privileges)
- Event Publisher password (the password of the local Unified Manager user assigned Event Publisher privileges)
- Your Unified Manager and Performance Manager installation platforms must match.
- Unified Manager, if installed as a virtual appliance, can only connect with Performance Manager servers also installed as virtual appliances.
- The clusters that are to be managed by Performance Manager and Unified Manager must be added to both Performance Manager and Unified Manager.
About this task
You can configure connections between one Unified Manager and multiple Performance Manager
- Log in via SSH as the maintenance user to the Performance Manager host to set up the Performance Manager and Unified Manager connection.
- If Performance Manager is installed as a virtual appliance, log in as the maintenance user to the maintenance console of the Performance Manager server for which you want to create the Unified Manager connection.
- In the maintenance console, type the number of the menu option labeled "Unified Manager Connection" and then type the number of the menu option labeled "Add/Modify Unified Manager Server Connection."
- When prompted, supply the requested Unified Manager server name or IP address and Unified Manager server port information.
The maintenance console checks the validity of the specified Unified Manager server name or IP address and Unified Manager server port, and, if necessary, prompts you to accept the Unified Manager server trust certificate to support the connection. The default Unified Manager server port 443 must be used.
- When prompted, supply the requested Event Publisher user name and Event Publisher password and then confirm that the settings are correct.
- If you want to configure an additional connection between the Unified Manager and another Performance Manager server, log in as the maintenance user to that Performance Manager server and repeat this sequence.
You can configure connections between a single Unified Manager server and up to five Performance Manager servers.
After the connection is complete, all new performance incidents discovered by Performance Manager
are reflected on the Unified Manager Dashboard page
and Events page
Note: Until an initial performance incident is discovered the Unified Manager Dashboard page remains unchanged.
