After you deploy the Performance Manager virtual appliance and complete the setup wizard, there are several configuration tasks that you might want to perform before you start monitoring your clusters, such as changing the host name, configuring alerts, and adding users.
Before you begin
- You must have deployed the virtual appliance and completed the initial setup of Performance Manager.
- You must be logged in as the OnCommand Administrator to complete all tasks in this workflow.
- Changing the Performance Manager host name
When you deployed Performance Manager, an SSL certificate was generated for HTTPS access. A host name was associated with the certificate, allowing you to use the host name to access the Performance Manager GUI. You might want to change this host name after deployment.
- Configuring Performance Manager to send alert notifications
After the clusters have been added to Performance Manager, you can monitor them, but you cannot receive notifications about events in your cluster environment until you configure several options, such as the email address from which notifications are sent, the users to receive the alerts, and so on. You might also want to modify the default threshold settings at which events are generated.
- Adding users
You must manually add users to Performance Manager to create user accounts and control user access.
