Filtering Internal HPOM Error MessagesOpen in a New Window

Hello Support,

I am working with OML version 9.21.130 and OMA 11.14 and i am facing a strange behavior about filtering Internal error messages.

In particular i have some nodes where thers is no OPC_INT_MSG_FLT variable set to TRUE, but i am able as well to intercept internal messages via "opcmsg" policy. Infact source of the event reports the name of the policy/condition.

I am confused about it becuase i expect this behavior only if i have that variable (OPC_INT_MSG_FLT) set to true.

Please can you confirm my opinion? is there any default value about that variable? Is dipendent on agent version?

Consider that events has been generated by agent side and not by management server side, example:

(ctrl-208) Component 'opcmsga' with pid 20766 exited with exit value '6'. Restarting component.






HP Operation Manager fox UNIX freeze when man clicks with mouse quicklyOpen in a New Window

Dear Colleagues,

We experience freeze of HP Operations Manager many times on a day after we moved from windows to Redhat based workstations. Now we use, the HP Operations Manager for UNIX.

The freeze usually happens, when we click with mouse quickly on filtered messages windows to own or check details of alerts.

We use 09.21..130 Version for HP Operation Manager for UNIX

Java version is 1.8.0_111 and run from /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-oracle-

Operating system is: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 7.2 (Maipo)

Kernel version: 3.10.0-327.36.3.el7.x86_64

Has anyone any idea how to solve this issue?

Thank you for the answers, in advance!


Can HP Operations Manager (OpenView) monitor Linux/Unix services?Open in a New Window

Hello, im running HP Operations Manager on a Windows server, the HP tool can monitor other Windows nodes with no problem (Performance, Services...). I did successfully install the Agent on a Linux node (CentOS 6.8), all of the agent services is running well, the certificates on agent node is good, i can synchronize packages n policies with no problem, but when i try deploy Process/Service Monitor Policy on Linux node, the Operations Console tells me that the policy uses a VBscript, which means it does not support a LInux/Unix node.

So my question is: Can HP Operations Manager (OpenView) monitor Linux/Unix services? or did i miss something?

Thanks for reading my question

Best Regards

Hearbeat monitoring from OML9.2Open in a New Window


I want to know how exactly agent heartbeat monitoring works on OML 9.2. any reference doc will be helpful.

Also if we keep the heartbeat polling interval to 5 minutes without selecting the "agent sends alive packets" check box, then will the ping monitoring alert be created if the server is down at the time time of polling or there are some other factors also included?

Perl Script Session valuesOpen in a New Window

I can't seem to locate an answer to this.. but it seems like this should work.. 

my $DiskMBFreeThreshold;
$DiskMBFreeThreshold = 100;
$Session->Value('DiskMBFreeThreshold', $DiskMBFreeThreshold);

my $ExcludeFilter;
$ExcludeFilter = "[D:|E:|F:|G:|K:|L:|M:|N:|O:|P:|Q:|R:|S:|T:|U:|V:|W:|X:|Y:|Z:]";
$Session->Value('ExcludeFilter', $ExcludeFilter);


So I have these two values... when I attempt to use the text based $Session->Value('ExcludeFilter'); I'm told that

Perl Script execution failed: (in cleanup) Can't call method "Value" on an undefined value at PerlScript line 39.

but the numeric variable works fine.  

This is a threshold policy and I'm setting that value using the parameters...and calling it on an instance filter.. 

$ExcludeFilter = $Session->Value('ExcludeFilter'); <-- this is line 39

Any ideas?

Agetn 12.0-12.1 crashing OPCMONA from Disk capacity policyOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

   For what seems like a year now, our opcmona agent on our 12.0-12.1 installs seems to randomly go ou over and over again. With a little troubleshooting I found it to be the DiskCapacity policy that fails. My automation guy put in debig statements that would catalog where in the perl scripts the policy was failing and taking the agent out, however it never got to the Perl and it seems that there is some diconnect between the coda pulling the data and getting to the script. Has anyone ran into this and if so how did you fix it.
