How to Checking process status by running the itnm_status command in ITNM?

On UNIX, operating systems, you can check the status of IBM Tivoli.

Netcool/OMNIbus, the Tivoli Integrated Portal, and Network Manager by using the itnm_status command.? steps.

To check the status of all Network Manager components on the current server:

Change to the $NCHOME/precision/bin directory.

Type the following command: itnm_status

This command displays the status of all the Network Manager components that are installed on the server.

How to Assign poller for MIB graphing in ITNM?

If you have defined additional pollers, and want to assign a poller to handle MIB graphing, edit the properties file.

You must have created the poller that you want to use for MIB graphing before you edit the file.

To assign a poller for MIB graphing:

Open the following file: $TIPHOME/profiles/TIPProfile/etc/tnm/tnm.properties.

Change the value of the tnm.graph.poller parameter from DEFAULT_POLLER to the name of the required poller.

Save and close the file

What are the phases of Discovery in ITNM?

Now that the discovery has started, can monitor the progress of the discovery on the Network Discovery Status page.

Use the status in the Discovery Phase field to determine how the discovery is running:

Until the first device is discovered, the discovery phase is Idle/Standby (0).

After the first device is discovered, the status changes to Discovering Network (1). As further devices are discovered, the count in the Processed IP Addresses field increases.

The discovery then runs through the following statuses:

-Downloading ARP (2)

-Downloading Connections (3)

-Correlating Connectivity (-1)

After the discovery is completed, the status reverts to Idle/Standby (0).

Name the various Other ITM Agents installed on unix/linux servers.

– ux Monitoring Agent for UNIX OS

– um Universal Agent

– yn Monitoring Agent for WebSphere

– ht Monitoring Agent for Web Servers

– mq WebSphere MQ Monitoring Agent

– mc WebSphere MQ Configuration Agent

What are the benefits of TADDM?

The benefits of TADDM are as follows:

TADDM provides the information about the current running application on the network.

TADDM helps in understanding the computing environment of your organization.

By TADDM we get to know which applications and services are deployed on the network.

TADDM can also discover the relationships between applications and services.

By the help of TADDM we can determine the network related problems.

By TADDM we can determine the compliance related problem.

Give the overview of TADDM Components.

Discovery Manager: The server running the TADDM discovery processes.

Administrative Console: It provides the server status, runtime and license information.

Discovery Client: A java based GUI on which we can configure and run discovery processes.

Domain Manager: A portal in the administrative console with which you can view all your configuration items and manage users.

Anchor Servers: These are required to run the discovery in firewall zones.

Windows Gateway Server: These are required to discover the windows systems.

Database(CMDB): The repository to store the information collected after discovery.

Write the command to split the ITM agents?

tacmd exportBundles -o SPD -t ux -e <full path of directory where to store the splitted image > -i <Full path to the directory where agent file after extracting>/unix

Write the command to export situation in ITM?

tacmd viewSit -s N_IGIS_Missing_MQService -e N_IGIS_Missing_MQService

Give the brief overview of CMDB?

It is a data store or logical collection of data that contains all the information about IT assets.

It maintains the relationship between these assets, CIs and their changes.

It can become the reliable and accurate source of information if managed properly.

The major difference between the CMDB and any other data repository is of making the relationship between the Configuration Items.
