KBI 311992 Enhancement: Include System Down Rule Method As Part Of Instance Name Of Performance Counter


Argent Advanced Technology 5.1A-2207-A and later


Tuesday, 31 May 2022


When saving Argent Predictor data in System Down Rule, Performance Object name is ‘Service Level Agreement’, Performance Counter name is ‘System Alive’, and Performance Instance name is server/device name by default.

If System Down Rule uses method of TCP port, SSH, WMI etc, user might want to differentiate collected Argent Predictor data.

For example, the target mail server is up when testing with Ping, but port 25 is down because SMTP service is not running.

As results, target server could be 100% server uptime, but 95% SMTP service uptime.

Argent AT 5.1A-2207-A is enhanced to save method as part of instance name.

For example, System Down Rule scanning TCP port 25 will save instance name as ‘Server Name (Port: 25)’ if option ‘Include Testing Method As Part Of Performance Counter Instance’ is used.
