BPPM 8.6 monitors and thresholds migration

Simius .

Hi everyone,

 

I have configured some monitors in BPPM 8.6 (individual monitors, aggregate monitors, snmp). The SNMP data are polled via PNET agent.

Is there a procedure to migrate these monitors and thresholds to a different BPPM 8.6 environment with the same architecture design?

Is it possible to export monitors and thresholds from the first environment and import them into the other one?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

 

Best Regards,

 

Simius

    Thresholds migration:

     

    pw threshold checkpoint


    Run pw threshold checkpoint command to manage existing thresholds. With this

    command thresholds can be saved for:

    ■ Particular monitor type.

    ■ Monitor instance.

    ■ Multiple instances.

     

    This feature can also be used to apply thresholds from one setup to another. This

    feature is useful to restore backed up thresholds in case any existing thresholds are

    lost.

    Thank you Alexandr,

     

    I assume that this kind of migration can be applied only to the Absolute thresholds and not to the Signature thresholds (based on baselines) because in the other environment I may have different baselines...correct?

     

    Is it possible to import/export the monitors or do they need to be recreated manually?

    1) You are right - only Abs thresholds will be exported.

    2) I have no idea

    Hello there,

     

    does anybody know if it's possible to migrate monitors created in version 8.1 to a new installation of BPPM 8.6?

    Can it be done (I mean, is there a procedure to do this) or will I have to recreate the monitors manually?

     

    Thanks and Regards,
