    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,

          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?

             

            Regards,

              2) 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,
