Agent name identification

WhaTap basically uses the data collected from application servers to identify each server while collecting monitoring data. Basic information uses the application server as a unique identifier by a combination of application server's type, IP address, and such. If necessary, use the name set by the user or change the pattern to a unique value. The agent name must be unique.

The reason why the data extracted from the application server is used, is like the following. When a communication loss caused by the stop of the application server, network disconnection, or agent problem between the collection server and the agent, is restored, the continuity of the data from the reconnected agent is maintained.

Caution
  • The agent names must be unique on a project basis.
  • If the agent ID and name have been changed, previous data is not connected.
Note
  • In WhaTap Monitoring, the object and agent can be used interchangeably as the monitoring target.
  • object_name String

    Default {type}-{ip2}-{ip3}-{process}

    It is an agent naming (ONAME) scheme to identify applications. An OID is created based on the ONAME.

    NameDescription
    {type}Use the value set in whatap.app_name.
    {ip#}When IPs are divided, the #th digit is used.
    {process}Use the value set in whatap.app_process_name.
    {hostname}The server host name is used.
  • app_name String

    It is a component used in the agent naming (ONAME) scheme to identify applications. It corresponds to the {type} among the object_name options.

  • app_process_name String

    It is a component used in the agent naming scheme to identify applications. It sets the target process to collect data of the application server such as CPU and heap memory. The value corresponds to the {process} of the object_name.

  • whatap.okind String

    Set the group unit to which the agent belongs. By setting multiple agents together, the topology can be checked by the group name.

  • whatap.onode String

    Set the node unit to which the agent belongs.
