HPPM 9.2 Unix Version - TrialOpen in a New Window



We have face some issues with extracting graphs and charts from the servers and backend team has gotten back that we need to have HPPM 9.2 in order to extract the graphs. However, we need to ensure that with the HPPM9.2 the charts and graphs can be extracted, prior to get customer to purchase it.


Pls assist on this. We need the trail version for HPPM9.2 unix version, to test it out on the environment.



OVPM and BSMCOpen in a New Window


on a windows machine we have installed the BSMC/OpsC.10.11. Afterwards we noticed that OVPM also was installed on that system. But the BSMC has overwritten some settings in ovtomcatB. So OVPM was not reachable any more.

Question: Is there a way to make both OVPM and BSMC work on one machine? Is there a description available how to configure ovpm to make it work again after BSMC installation?

Kind regards,


unable to see data in OVPM graphsOpen in a New Window

Hi ,

I am unable to see data in infra performance graphs for a particular node.

the perforamnace agent is running on it and also I have checked command

/opt/OV/bin/ovcodautil -dumpds scope , it is generating data.

I tried ovpm trace on but could not find anything in logs

agent is 

eux091{root}# opcagt -version


Agent End message with no resetOpen in a New Window

hi there,

i'm sure all of you met the "Agent End" message whenever a component of the perf agent goes down; the details are:

Node:    GOOFY    

Message group: Performance

Application:   alarmgen

Object:        alarmgen

Severity:      Warning

Text:          Agent End 

And my question is: how do i trigger/intercept/generate a reset (a normal message, acknowledging the previous warning) when agent's components are all running correctly?

That's all

Probably this post will win "the silliest question" award but i simply hate "persistent" messages.

Wynyard VMA failureOpen in a New Window

VCENTER is not communicating with VMA and performance metrics from ESXI hosts is not collecting. issue started after upgrading ESXi hosts in Wynyard. In Doxford the ESXi are not upgraded yet, ant reporting there is OK.

First, both vCenters (Doxford and Wynyard) were upgraded, without affecting reporting.

Then ESXi hosts in Wynyard were upgraded (both OS and FW) and the issues started (middle of December).

To me, the ESXi hosts have changed the way they output data, and because HPOA version is quite old, it doesn’t understand that.


OVPM upgrade to 9.20 failed looking for existing HPSpiInfGOpen in a New Window

OVPM 9.03 was installed on an Redhat 6.8 server with OML 9.11.130 (OML_00084) nd the 11.15.019 agent.

When tring to upgrade to 9.20, the upgrade process failed and I have been unable to get OVPM to install correctly.


It complains the some of the expected file sets are missing when trying to do the upgrade.


It is only trying to install 4 filesets:





If the first two are not already on the system the upgrade will fail at the first on that is missing.

If the are on the system, it will finish, however pieces are missing,

/opt/OV/bin/ovpm is missing and web access get a 404 response.

TCP Port 8081 is in LISTEN state.

I have tried to manually install the first 2 rpms to get this far.

HP Performance Manager 9.2 and Performance Agent CompatibilityOpen in a New Window

Dear all,

as per the HPE Software Product Support Matrix Tool (SUMA), HP Performance Manager version v9.2 and Reporter v4 do not have any "Performance Agent" versions listed as compatible/supported (only "Operations Agent" entries) while Performance Manager version 9.0 and Reporter 3.9 list Performance Agents down to version 4.7 as supported. At first sight, a quick test on Performance Manager v9.2 against a Performance Agent running v5.0 showed data graphs as expected.

Is Performance Manager v9.2 and Reporter 4.0 compatible with Performance Agents in the same way as v9.0/v3.9 were? We want to avoid having two installations of Performance Manager, one for newer Operation agents and one for older Performance agents.

Agentless Performance (SiteScope) doesn't worksOpen in a New Window


We have some servers in our environment that it's necessary generate performance graphics with agentless mode (SiteScope). We know that it needs a monitor on SiteScope and we've already configured, but on Performance Manager it doesn't generate graphics.

The monitor on SiteScope is working fine and the option to send metrics to Operations Agent is marked, but when I go to Performance Manager it says that an error occurs.


Thanks for any help.
