How to monitor memory consumption of Traverse via SNMP?
To track the memory consumption of a Traverse component using SNMP, create an Advanced SNMP test with these parameters:
- Navigate to Adminstration->Devices->Tests
- Select 'Create New Advanced Tests' (must be logged into the department or represented into the department)
- Check the box to select 'Advanced SNMP Test'
- Enter the following, replacing 'xxxx' below with the Process ID (PID) of the component and replacing 'COMPONENT NAME' with the component being used to monitor:
Test Name: COMPONENT NAME Process Memory
Interval: 5 min
Test Units: MB
SNMP OID: .188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.1.1.2.xxxx
Result Multiplier: 0.001
- Select the 'Provision Tests' button at the bottom of the page
One way to determine the PID from a command prompt on the Traverse server is to check the PID associated with a unique TCP port used by the component:
netstat -ano | grep 9999 (netstat -anp | grep 9999 for Linux)
where '9999' is a unique port number associated with the Traverse component. Example JMX ports used by Traverse components include:
Web application: 7691
Data Gathering Engine: 7692
Message Handler: 7693
Correlation & Summary Engine: 7696
If using Linux, you may also run 'cat' on the component's .pid file to display the PID
Web application: <TRAVERSE_HOME>/etc/webapp.pid
Data Gathering Engine: <TRAVERSE_HOME>/etc/monitor.pid
Message Handler: <TRAVERSE_HOME>/etc/msgsvr.pid
Correlation & Summary Engine: <TRAVERSE_HOME>/etc/cse.pid
Please note also that the Process ID will change each time the component is started, as such the SNMP OID will need to be updated each time the component is restarted.
All versions of Traverse.
