KBI 311269 Issue Addressed: Different Performance Rule Event Message Format Between Argent XT and AT


Argent Advanced Technology 3.1A-1504-T4 and earlier


Friday, 7 August 2015


There is significant difference in Event message format of Performance Rule between Argent XT and Argent AT

Take following disk performance Rule PRF_DISK_ALL_5 as example,

Suppose server has drive C, D and S, and only C drive has lower than 5% free disk space

In Argent AT, the Event message will look like following:

LogicalDisk (C:)\%Free Space = 4.7 (< 5)

In Argent XT, the Event message will look like following:

%Free Space of LogicalDisk (C:)\ = 4.7

%Free Space of LogicalDisk (D:)\ = 71.3

%Free Space of LogicalDisk (C:)\ = 95.5

The most significant difference is that Argent AT only lists out the drive that breaks the Rule while Argent XT lists out all the drives discovered by the system, no matter the drive breaks the Rule or not

Technical Background

New COMMON registry HKLM\Software\Argent\COMMON\USE_XT_PERF_EVENT_MSG_FORMAT (DWORD) is implemented to provide the backward compatibility

The default value is 0

When the boolean value is 1, the Argent XT compatible format is used

In other words, all performance instances should be included in the Event message


Upgrade to Argent AT 3.1A-1504-T5 or later
