Create Log Interval Configuration

Interval Logging allows you to collect resource usage data from the CA SDM servers. The collected interval log is used to analyze and troubleshoot any performance or memory-related issues in the CA SDM servers. You can also share the collected data with CA Support Online to help identify and resolve CA SDM server problems.

HID_Create Log Interval Configuration
Interval Logging allows you to collect resource usage data from the CA SDM servers. The collected interval log is used to analyze and troubleshoot any performance or memory-related issues in the CA SDM servers. You can also share the collected data with CA Support Online to help identify and resolve CA SDM server problems.
For Windows, install and add the pslist.exe tool to the windows OS %PATH% environment variable on each of the CA SDM servers.
To collect the usage data on the CA SDM servers, add the servers to the Interval Log Configuration list. Select the type of data you want to collect from each server, and change the logging options for the servers.
For example, if you select only the CPU usage option for a particular server, the utility collects the server CPU usage data.
Follow these steps:
  1. Select
    System
    ,
    Interval Logging
    from the
    Administration
    tab.
  2. Click
    Create New
    to add an interval logging configuration.
  3. Complete the fields as appropriate for the configuration.
    • Server Name
      Specifies the server for which you want to collect the log data. Use the Search icon to view the list of servers you can add for the interval logging.
    • Recurrence Interval
      Specifies the time interval during which the log data is collected for the server in hh:mm:ss format. For example, if the recurrence interval is set to 3 minutes, the log data is collected for every 3 minutes.
      • Default: 3 minutes
      • Minimum: 2 minutes
    • Enabled
      Indicates whether logging is enabled or disabled for the server. If enabled, log data is generated for the server.
    • Record Status
      Indicates whether the interval logging configuration is active or inactive.
    • Scheduled Start Date
      Specifies the start date and time for collecting the log data. If you do not enter a start date, interval logging starts immediately till the configuration is active, enabled, or scheduled end date.
    • Scheduled End Date
      Specifies the end date and time for collecting the log data. If you do not enter an end date, interval logging continues to run till the configuration is active and enabled.
  4. Select the appropriate interval log you want to collect from the server. For example, select CPU Usage if you want to collect the log for CPU usage data.
    • CPU Usage
      Collect the CPU usage statistics for the server by executing the pslist - x on Windows, or “ps” on Unix.
    • Memory Usage
      Collects the memory usage data for the server by executing the pslist - m on Windows, or “ps” on Unix.
    • Network Status
      Collects the information of all active connections and network statistics by executing the netstat /b or /a.
    • Task List
      Collects the application and services information for all the tasks running on the server.
    • Web Session Counts
      Collects the CA SDM sessions and user statistics for the web engine processes by executing the pdm_webstat command.
    • Server Status
      Collect the information about all CA SDM daemons or processes on the server by executing the pdm_status command.
    • DB Report
      Collects the information of database record types by executing the db_report command.
    • Virtual DB Info
      Collects the information that is related to queued database requests by executing the pdm_vdbinfo command.
    • List Server Connections
      Collects the information on active connections for the server by executing the pdm_listconn command.
    • List Slump Processes
      Collects the information about slump connections and processes by executing the slstat command.
    Depending on the selected server type, the interval logging options are enabled or disabled for the server.
  5. Click
    Save
    .
    The server is configured for interval logging.
  6. (Optional) Repeat Steps 1-5 to create more interval log configurations.
