Real Time Monitoring Tool

The RTMP Plugin Download page includes a link to download the Real Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT).

RTMT runs as a client-side application and can be installed on a Windows workstation. It is cluster-aware and provides critical service and performance monitoring (perfmon), trace/log collection and viewing, and Alert Management on the node for the IP address you request when you launch the RTMT. It does not provide the status of all critical applications on all the nodes at the same time.

Use RTMT to:

  • Monitor the health of the system by generating email alerts for objects whose values go above or below a threshold
  • Collect and view traces
  • View syslog messages
  • Monitor performance counters.

RTMT has extensive online help. Refer to it for information on alerts, schedule collection, performance monitoring, and collecting and downloading tracing and logging data.

    Unified Intelligence Center performance objects and counters

    Unified Intelligence Center performance objects are named for system components that generate data. Each performance object provides performance counters that represent data for specific to that object. For example, the CUIC Licensing performance object has counters for License Start and License Expiration dates. The CUIC Reporting object has counters for the number of reports that are running and the number of reports that have failed. The counters for each object display when the folder expands.

    Reporting Counters. The following diagram illustrates the runtime interactions and the relationship among the components involved on the execution of a report. The diagram provides a simple structure that defines the reporting engine performance counters.
    Figure 6. Report Execution



    When the data for the report is available, the Data Processing Center computes the formula fields and global report footers. The gauge, grid, and chart managers in the engine pre-process the data to generate subsets of information that will be consumed by their corresponding peer components on the User Interface. The diagram shows which processes have a high cost of execution and the importance of closely monitoring the operations performed by charts, grids, data processing center, the data sources, and so forth. Monitor these components to track the behavior of each component and its total contribution to the cost of executing a report.

    Aggregating the costs of all components provides a holistic view of the system performance. Keeping counters at the component level allows the system and application administrator to drill down into the details to determine what each component is doing and to perform any necessary corrective actions that.

    This section lists all the performance objects monitored for Unified Intelligence Center and explains the counters for each.


    Note


    Online help is available for each counter. Right-click the counter and select Counter Description.

    % Page Usage

    The percentage of active pages.

    % VM Used

    The system virtual memory utilization as a percentage. The value of this counter equals (Total KBytes - Free KBytes - Buffers KBytes - Cached KBytes + Shared KBytes + Used Swap KBytes) / (Total KBytes + Total Swap KBytes), which also corresponds to Used VM KBytes/Total VM KBytes.

    Free Swap KBytes

    The amount of free swap space that is available in your system in kilobytes.

    HighFree

    The amount of free memory in the high region. Linux kernel splits the virtual memory address space into memory regions. The high memory is memory above a certain physical address, and its amount depends on the total memory and the type of kernel on the system.

    HighTotal

    The total amount of memory in the high region.

    LowFree

    The free low (non-paged) memory for kernel.

    LowTotal

    The total low (non-paged) memory for kernel.

    PageFaultsPerSec

    This represents the number of page faults (major + minor) made by the system per second (post 2.5 kernels only). This is not a count of page faults that generate I/O, because some page faults can be resolved without I/O.

    PageMajorFaultsPerSec

    This represents the number of major faults the system has made per second, those which have required loading a memory page from disk (post 2.5 kernels only).

    Pages

    Shared KBytes

    The amount of shared memory in your system in kilobytes.

    SlabCache

    This represents all memory used by created slabcaches by various kernel components, as a macroscopic counter representing the sum of all the individual entries in the proc's slabinfo.

    SwapCached

    Total KBytes

    The total amount of memory in your system in kilobytes.

    Total Swap KBytes

    The total amount of swap space in your system in kilobytes.

    Total VM KBytes

    The total amount of system physical and memory and swap space (Total Kbytes + Total Swap Kbytes) that is in use in your system in kilobytes.

    Used KBytes

    The amount of system physical memory that is in use on the system in kilobytes. The value of the Used KBytes counter equals Total KBytes - Free KBytes - Buffers KBytes - Cached KBytes + Shared KBytes. The Used KBytes value differs from the Linux term that displays in the top or free command output. The Used value that displays in the top or free command output equals the difference in Total KBytes - Free KBytes and also includes the sum of Buffers KBytes and Cached KBytes.
