Integrate
DX NetOps Performance Management
with
CA Business Intelligence
(CABI) so that you can access the CABI reports and dashboards in
NetOps Portal
. CABI reports for
DX NetOps Performance Management
offer portable graphical representations of
DX NetOps Performance Management
performance metrics. You can evaluate performance metrics including high-level representations of your sites and their monitored devices from the CABI dashboards in
NetOps Portal
.
In this article:
DX NetOps Performance Management
integrates with CABI in the following ways:
  • The connection is to a standalone CABI instance. In this configuration, CABI contains only
    DX NetOps Performance Management
    data.
  • With the Unified Dashboards and Reporting for Infrastructure Management solution, you can integrate a single instance of CABI with the following products:
    • DX NetOps Performance Management
    • Unified Infrastructure Management
    • DX NetOps Spectrum
    • CA Service Operations Insight
Sharing a single instance of CABI:
Integration Considerations
  • DX NetOps Performance Management
    synchronizes users to CABI using a non-FIPS-compliant algorithm. If you configure
    DX NetOps Performance Management
    to use FIPS-compliant encryption and hashing algorithms (enable FIPS-compliant encryption), you cannot integrate with
    CA Business Intelligence
    (register or use CABI as a data source).
    For more information, see Enable FIPS-Compliant Encryption.
  • Individually, you can configure CABI and
    NetOps Portal
    to authenticate users against an LDAP server. However, when CABI is integrated with
    NetOps Portal
    , configure each to authenticate users against a local user database, not against an LDAP server.
Verify the Prerequisites
  • The Java version that
    DX NetOps Performance Management
    supports on the machine where CABI is installed.
  • The JasperReports Server version that
    CA Business Intelligence
    supports.
  • The required third-party tools for the
    CA Business Intelligence
    JasperReports Server installation.
  • The
    CA Business Intelligence
    JasperReports Server installation procedure.
  • The list of RHEL Linux versions that support a GUI installation. Use the silent installation for all other versions.
