Manage Data Sources page

The Manage Data Sources page enables you to add clusters and to view detailed information about the clusters that you are monitoring.

Command buttons

The command buttons enable you to perform the following tasks for a selected cluster:

Opens the Add Cluster dialog box, which enables you to add clusters.
Opens the Edit Cluster dialog box, which enables you to edit the settings of the selected cluster.
Removes the selected cluster and all the associated events and storage objects. After the cluster is removed, it is no longer monitored.
Attention: The cluster, its storage objects, and all associated events are removed, and the cluster is no longer monitored by Performance Manager. The instance of Performance Manager registered with the removed clustered is also unregistered from the cluster.

Clusters list

The Clusters list displays, in tabular format, the properties of all the discovered clusters. You can use the column filters to customize the data that is displayed:

Host Name or IP Address
Displays the host name, Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN), short name, or the IP address of the cluster-management LIF that is used to connect to the cluster.
Displays the type of protocol that can be configured on the cluster: HTTP or HTTPS (for a secure connection). If a connection is established with the cluster by using both protocols, HTTPS is chosen over HTTP. The default is HTTPS with port 443.
Displays the port number of the cluster. If the port is not specified, the default port for the selected protocol is used (80 for HTTP or 443 for HTTPS).
User Name
Displays the user name that can be used to log in to the cluster.
Displays the current status of the cluster:
  • Normal—Cluster is operating normally.
  • Authorization Failure—Invalid credentials for accessing the cluster.
  • Network Access Failure—Network connection issue or a network timeout occurred.
  • LIF Error—Issue with a node-management or cluster-management LIF.
  • Collection Stopped—An older version and a newer version of Performance Manager are monitoring the same cluster, which has stopped data collection.

    Only the newer version can monitor the cluster. You must remove the cluster from the older version for the newer version to resume data collection.

  • Duplicate Datasource—Duplicate data sources, such as clusters, are being monitored.
  • ZAPI Error—Issue with the cluster that is preventing data collection.
  • Internal Error
  • Unknown
