Adding sources for resource monitoring data

If you enable resource monitoring, you must specify the sources of resource monitoring data. A cloud schedule can contain resource monitoring locations that can be in the local premises, in the cloud location, or in both the places.


  1. Open a schedule for editing.
  2. At the bottom of the Resource Monitoring page, click Add. You might need to scroll down in the view. The Create and manage configurations wizard opens.
  3. Do one of these steps:
    • To create a resource monitoring location, click Create new resource monitoring location.
    • To add an existing location or to create a resource monitoring location that is based on an existing location, click Create or add a resource monitoring location from an existing source.
  4. Type an IP address or the fully qualified host name. This address or host name is for the node to monitor, not the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server. The IP address can be of a computer that is in the cloud. You can choose the types of data sources.
  5. Select from these data sources:
    • Apache HTTP Server Monitoring
    • Apache Tomcat Application Server Monitoring
    • IBM DB2 Monitoring
    • IBM Tivoli Monitoring
    • IBM WebSphere PMI Monitoring
    • JBoss Application Server Monitoring
    • JVM Monitoring
    • Oracle Database Monitoring
    • Oracle WebLogic Server Monitoring
    • SAP NetWeaver Web Application Server Monitoring
    • SNMP Monitoring
    • UNIX rstatd monitor
    • Windows Performance Monitor
    You can select multiple types of data sources, but you must configure each one separately. You cannot collect Windows Performance Monitoring data from a computer that is running the Linux operating system. Also, you cannot collect Windows Performance Monitoring data if your workbench is running the Linux operating system. In other words, to collect Windows Performance Monitoring data, the workbench and the node to monitor must both be running the Windows operating system.

What to do next

Configure the data sources.
