Past 7 days or past week reportOpen in a New Window

Hi Experts

We have installed OBR 10.01 on Linux machine. (standalone)

We just want to know whether OBR has a default option for Past 7 days or Past week report. When i take any report (out of the box) i dont see any option for taking past 7 days, i have to take custom range and then manually select the dates. This way we are unable to schedule the reports. How can we achieve this? Is this default behaviour?

 

Sticky Bit failure?Open in a New Window

Hello! I am trying to install OBR on RHEL 7, Typical install, and all prerequisites pass except for the "Sticky bit for Ping command Check".  I get this:

Executing initialize action : Sticky bit for Ping command Check
[Failed]: #ERROR: Sticky bit is not set for /bin/ping. You must set and run the
installation again.

But I have set it.  Here it is on my system:

[root@scobrp01 OBR]# ll /bin/ping
-rwsr-xr-t. 1 root root 44896 Jun 5 2015 /bin/ping
[root@scobrp01 OBR]#

I never had to deal with the sticky bit before, I set the +t and the +s there, but the test still doesn't pass.  What is the installer checking for?  How can I make it pass?

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to use the CDE designer to create a CP for additional OA metrics. I have to collect BYDSK_BUSYTIME and i order to get this i need to even the BYDSK_DEVNAME. Though I select the following the CDE designer fails to compile

Dim Attr: HOSTNAME and BYDSK_DEVNAME

Fact Attr: HOSTNAME, BYDSK_DEVNAME, BYDSK_BUSYTIME


has anybody done such CP with the designer where we need one more level of dimension other than K_CI_System ?

 

Regards,

Allwyn

Configuration Wizard not getting past "Create Vertica Database"Open in a New Window

Hello!  After a successful installation of OBR 10.10, I logged into the Admin Console using the default password, changed it successfully, and now I am stuck at the Configuration Wizard.  I set the Timezone, then fill out all of the fields for the Vertica Configuration - this is a Typical install and the Vertica DB will be on the same server, Redhat 6 - and nothing happens when I click the Next button.  I get a quick flash of the circular wait icon, but nothing happens.

I have tried Chrome and IE, shut down pop-up blockers, and tried it from another machine, no luck.  Nothing happens.  Anybody see this?  i have installed OBR before and this did not happen.

Error while loading data in actual tablesOpen in a New Window

Hello Experts,

I created one content pack to pull data from Event DB. It worked perfectly over development box. When I install the content pack over production box, the csv is not getting loaded. I looked into loader.log

Data is very well residing in stage tables.

 

2017-03-02 14:14:56,245 FATAL [ ABCBatchID:5399119, ABCStreamID:ROI_Domain@K_ROI, ABCStepID:Load_K_ROI, ABCProcessID:5399120 ][K_ROI]:[Vertica][VerticaDSII] (20) An error occurred during query execution: server closed the connection unexpectedly

            This probably means the server terminated abnormally

            before or while processing the request.

 (SQL-HY000) ;return value: 1

2017-03-02 14:14:56,251 FATAL [ ABCBatchID:5399119, ABCStreamID:ROI_Domain@K_ROI, ABCStepID:Load_K_ROI, ABCProcessID:5399120 ][K_ROI]:[Vertica][VerticaDSII] (10) An error occurred during query preparation: no connection to the server

 (SQL-HY000) ;return value: 1

 

Any catch on this.

Network Performance Content Pack limitation.Open in a New Window

In Network Performance Content Pack Reference, there is following description:

"Note: The Network Performance Content Pack collects data only from Type2 NodeGroups, that is, routers and switches."

But I also need to collects data from other than Type2 NodeGroups.

For example, firewall, load balancer, bandwidth controller, N/W power manager, remote console, time server, etc.

 

How can I get these data from NPS, using "Network Performance Content Pack"?

 

There are 2 other CPs. "Network_Component_Health_CP" and "Network_Interface_Health_CP".

Can these CPs get the data like firewall, load balancer, etc. from NPS?

 

Regards,

Takaaki Kawagome
