Operations Analytics InstallationOpen in a New Window

Hello Everyone,

I wanted one clarification . .. 

Can Operations Analytics be installed on a single machine? I mean . . Server, collector, Logger and vertica

all in one machine ? I am talking about the trial version. . . 

 

Operation AnalyticsOpen in a New Window

Hi . . .

I need one information. . .

In OpsA 2.31 installation document, it is given as in attached doc.

When i tried to download the software, i got one single zip file of 7.2 GB with the description :-

"HP_Operations_Analytics_for_HP_OneView_Sept_2015_Z7550-96174.zip".

Is this the same combined with all 4 zip files? or is this different one?

 

 

 

Opsa self monitoringOpen in a New Window

Hi people,

As far as i know OpsA uses automatically configured Flex connector for self monitoring.

However for integration it asks  serial number of the logger host. How can  i get the serial number of logger host?

 

To view Operations Analytics collector logs, you need to run opsa-flex-config.sh on each Operations Analytics Collector host and perform the following steps from the command line:

  1. Review the list of Logger hosts already configured for the opsa_default tenant.

  2. Enter the serial number of the Logger host for which you want to configure the Operations Analytics Log File Connector for HP Arcsight Logger.

* Enter the serial number of the Logger host for which you want to configure the Operations Analytics Log File Connector for HP Arcsight Logger.

 

HP OPSA - ArcSight Logger integration IssueOpen in a New Window

Good day

 

We woudl like to find out

 

We currently have OPSA 2.31 Integrated into ArcSight Logger

WIndows events are being populated, however when we look at the arcsight_log_stream table in Vertica it seems its only populating some of the 130 fields from logger

Has anyone had the same issue, as I can see there are some config files that I can possibly edit however would like to see if anyone else has done it before while I am awaiting an answer from HPE Support

 

Thanks

 

The pane don't show - Most Significant MessagesOpen in a New Window

Hi,

I have tried to get information in Log and Event Analytics - Most Significant Messages, the panel is empty. 

Information is: com.hp.opsa.aql.execution.error.AQLServiceException: Data could not be retrieved. Try checking the opsa-task-manager logs on the Operations Analytics Appliance Server. There are messages in opsa-task-manager-service.log:

WARNING: Couldn't flush system prefs: java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException: /etc/.java/.systemPrefs/com create failed.
Jan 15, 2016 4:43:01 PM java.util.prefs.FileSystemPreferences syncWorld

Jan 15, 2016 4:43:31 PM java.util.prefs.FileSystemPreferences syncWorld
WARNING: Couldn't flush system prefs: java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException: /etc/.java/.systemPrefs/com create failed.

Messages are comming from Splunk to OpsA.

Any idea why is this?

 

Prevent loosing all selections after redefine time-rangeOpen in a New Window

Hi Everyone

As the topic name provides, I am interested in using saved selections for the OpsA dashboards, while still finetuning the whole query.

To describe my problem:
I am using a dashboard and clicking some additional metrics to a simple line chart. I now figure out, that there are some unconditional issues at a specific time during about 30 mins. Now, I wanna zoom into this timerange, keeping the selected metrics. Unfortunately this won't work for me with OpsA 2.31. All selections will be reset when defining the new timeframe and I have to reselect of the metrics.

Is there a way or workaround to keep those selections saved, or is it a limitation?

Thanks for any input.

Cheers

 

HowTo customize the OpsA-Server Session Timeout?Open in a New Window

Hi Folks

My customer wants to change the session timeout value from the default (20 minutes) to a longer period, since he has integrated the OpsA-dashboard with OMi and is expiriencing some strange login redirecting issues to the OpsA-Server when the session is expired.

Is there may an option in a configuration file to change the default session timeout value to a custom one?

Thank you in advance and best Regards,

Simon

 

Error with OpsA UIOpen in a New Window

Hi, 

 

I'm facing errors with OpsA UI, where some of the components are not working at all, like creation of new dashboard etc. 

 

I searched the logs and found that in /opt/HP/opsa/log/opsa-task-manager/opsa-task-manager.log, 

 

ther are many entries of the following message : 

 

ERROR - ClusterManager: Error managing cluster: Failed to obtain DB connection from data source 'dataSource': java.sql.SQLException: Failed to get connection for  Quartz Connection Provider[Vertica][VJDBC](100176) Failed to connect to host <vertica_ip> on port 5433. Reason: Failed to establish a connection to the primary server or any backup address.

 

where <vertica_ip> is the private IP used by the Vertica node for their private connections. 

 

I din't give this IP during the postinstall script, but still somehow OpsA is using it to setup connection.

 

Kindly advise, how do I resolve this.

 

 

Integration OneView with full OpsAOpen in a New Window

Hi,

 

     I have a console of full OpsA that  already is recollecting logs from windows servers and from a OneView console, but I need repeat the process of integration of Oneview with Full Opsa but when I tried repeat this process (same OneView console), I get the next message:

 

   "Specified collector host is not a registered collector"

 

   My doubt is what I need for do for repeat the process of integration of same Oneview console to full  OpsA, because this console is for show our customer this process and for monitoring our servers. 

 

Thanks,
