Pack Components
A probe pack is a set of similar probes. For example, the CA NM - Storage Pack includes all the storage server monitoring probes in CA UIM. Each pack includes the following components:
  • Pack ID
    : indicates the unique name of the probe pack.
  • Rank
    : indicates a unique number for each pack.
  • Probe Name
    : indicates the name of the probe in the pack.
Default Probe Packs
The probe includes a list of predefined probe packs. Probes in your CA UIM environment are included in these packs.
CA NM - Base Infrastructure Pack
The CA NM - Base Infrastructure Pack includes the core probes of your CA UIM environment. From usage_metering version 9.01, the billing report does not include the resources of this pack.

Custom Probe Packs
You can create and use custom probe packs for the probes in your CA UIM environment for your billing reports. The report identifies deployed probes undefined in any pack as
unknown
and does not include them in the billable count. Contact CA Support for detailed billing analysis in this situation.
Custom Pack Rules
The following rules apply for custom packs:
  • Specify the pack ID and rank of your custom pack as different from the default packs.
  • Specify different Pack IDs for multiple packs for your custom pack.
  • Specify different ranks for multiple packs for your custom pack. If you specify the same rank for two or more probe packs, the probe generates an incorrect report.
  • Specify the rank as a multiple of 10. For example, 230
Create Custom Packs
You can create an XML file for your custom packs. The format of the XML file is as follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Packs>
<Pack id="
Pack_name
" rank="
number
">
<Probe name="
Probe_name
"/>
</Pack>
</Packs>
Follow these steps:
  1. Create an
    XML
    file with a text editor.
  2. Specify the details in the applicable format.
  3. Save the file as
    packs.xml
    .
For example, a sample packs.xml file is as follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Packs>
<Pack id="My Custom Big Data Pack" rank="250">
<Probe name="cassandra_monitor"/>
<Probe name="net_connect"/>
<Probe name="hadoop_monitor"/>
<Probe name="emailgtw"/>
</Pack>
<Pack id="My Custom Server Pack" rank="260">
<Probe name="aws"/>
<Probe name="vmware"/>
<Probe name="hitachi"/>
</Pack>
</Packs>
Deploy Custom Pack
You can use your custom
packs.xml
file with the usage_metering probe for your billing reports.
Follow these steps:
  1. Place the
    packs.xml
    file in the following location:
    <CA UIM Installation Directory>\probes\service\usage_metering\
  2. (Optional)
    Restart the usage_metering probe.
