Access Probe Configuration Options
After you install the zdataservice probe, you work with configuration options to connect to CIM servers, z/VM systems, and z/OS systems.
 
Follow these steps:
 
  1. Log in to Admin Console.
  2. Select the hub, and select the robot where the target probe is deployed.
  3. Select the 
    Probes
     tab.
  4. Select the inline menu button ( Inline Menu.png ) next to the probe > 
    Configure 
    or
     Raw Configure
    .
     If you selected 
    Configure
    , the configuration GUI for the probe opens in a new tab. If you selected 
    Raw Configure
    , the Raw Configure utility for the probe opens in Admin Console. For more information about using the Raw Configure utility, see the latest CA Unified Infrastructure Management DocOps platform.
    You can select to work with CIM Configurationz/VM Configuration, or z/OS Configuration.
Configure CIM Server Connections
You configure the CIM Data Collector to connect to z/OS Common Information Model (CIM) servers to gather metrics for the zops monitoring probe and the zstorage monitoring probe. The CIM server supplies the data to the Data Service probe. You can configure the Data Service probe to connect to one or more CIM servers from the LPARs where you want to gather metrics.
 
Follow these steps:
 
  1. Click the 
    CIM Configuration
     folder in the left pane.
    The CIM Configuration information appears in the right pane.
  2. Specify the value for the 
    Connection Timeout
     parameter. Enter a value in seconds to specify the timeout. 
    Default:
     600 seconds
  3. Click 
    New
     to add a new row to the list of CIM Server connections.
  4. Enter values for the following parameters in the lower pane:
    •  
      Host
      Specifies the host name or IP address of the CIM server.
    •  
      Protocol
      Specifies the protocol to use when connecting to CIM. Select https or http. This value should be set to https, but can be temporarily configured with http for debugging purposes.
    •  
      Port
      Specifies the port number of the CIM server that serves data.
  5. Locate and delete the default Host (name) and Port (number) from the CIM Server Connections table.
  6. Click 
    Save
     then click 
    OK
     to refresh the configuration.
    The CIM Configuration page refreshes with the information you just entered and the zdataservice probe automatically restarts.
  7. Close the Probe Configuration page.
Configure the Data Collector for z/VM Connections
You configure the Data Collector for z/VM to connect to z/VM systems to gather metrics for the zvm monitoring probe. You can configure the Data Service probe to connect to one or more z/VM servers from where you want to gather metrics.
Before you proceed, verify that a Data Collector for z/VM and Monitor Record Collector are installed on the z/VM.
 
Follow these steps:
 
  1. Click the 
    z/VM Configuration
     folder in the left pane.
    The z/VM Configuration information appears in the right pane. 
  2. Specify the value for the 
    Connection Timeout
     parameter. This parameter specifies the timeout value (in seconds) after which the Data Service Probe stops the connection if there is no response from the Data Collector for z/VM.
    Note:
     When the collector sends timeout messages, we recommend that you increase the value of this parameter. 
    Default:
     10 seconds
  3. Click 
    New
     to add a new row to the list of z/VM Connections.
  4. Enter values for the following parameters in the lower pane:
    •  
      Host
      Specifies the host name or IP address of the Data Collector for z/VM.
    •  
      Port
      Specifies the port number on which the Data Collector for z/VM runs the REST API.
  5. Locate and delete the default Host (name) and Port (number) from the Data Collector for z/VM Connections table.
  6. Click 
    Save
     then click 
    OK
     to refresh the configuration.
    The z/VM Configuration page refreshes with the information you just entered and the zdataservice probe automatically restarts.
  7. Close the Probe Configuration page.
Configure the Data Collector for z/OS Connections
You configure the Data Collector for z/OS connections to connect to the data collectors running on z/OS to gather metrics for the znetwork monitoring probe. You can configure the Data Service probe to connect to one or more z/OS Data Collectors from where you want to gather metrics.
Before you proceed, ensure that the Data Collector for z/OS is installed on z/OS.
 
Follow these steps:
 
  1. Click the 
    z/OS Configuration
     folder in the left pane.
    The z/OS Configuration information appears in the right pane. 
  2. Specify the value for the 
    Connection Timeout
     parameter. This parameter specifies the timeout value (in seconds) after which the Data Service Probe stops the connection if there is no response from the Data Collector for z/OS.
    Note:
     When the collector sends timeout messages, we recommend that you increase the value of this parameter. 
    Default:
     10 seconds
  3. Click 
    New
     to add a new row to the list of z/OS Data Collector Connections.
  4. Enter values for the following parameters in the lower pane:
    •  
      Host
      Specifies the host name or IP address of the Data Collector for z/OS.
    •  
      Port
      Specifies the port number on which the Data Collector for z/OS runs the REST API.
  5. Locate and delete the default Host (name) and Port (number) from the z/OS Data Collector Connections table.
  6. Click 
    Save
     then click 
    OK
     to refresh the configuration.
    The z/OS Configuration page refreshes with the information you just entered and the zdataservice probe automatically restarts.
  7. Close the Probe Configuration page.
