5.1.2 Installing monitoring agent .baroc files on the event server
The monitoring server generates Tivoli Enterprise Console events with classes
that are unique to each monitoring agent. Each monitoring agent provides a
.baroc file with the Tivoli Enterprise Console classes that are generated by IBM
Tivoli Monitoring V6.2. In order to view this event data in the event console, you
must install these monitoring agent .baroc files on the event server.
After you have added application support for each agent to the monitoring server,
the monitoring agent .baroc files are located in the following directory:
On Windows, in the
<itm_installdir>\cms\TECLIB directory, where
<itm_installdir> is the directory where you installed IBM Tivoli Monitoring
On Linux and UNIX, in the
directory, where <itm_installdir> is the directory where you installed IBM Tivoli
Monitoring V6.2 and <ms_name> is the name of the monitoring server.
Use the following steps to install the monitoring agent .baroc files on the event
1. Copy the monitoring agent .baroc files from the computer where the
monitoring server is installed to a temporary directory on the event server
computer (for example, /tmp). The location of the agent .baroc files is
Do not copy the om_tec.baroc file; this file contains classes
that are duplicates of classes in the omegamon.baroc file.
2. Set up the Tivoli Management Framework environment by running the
– On Linux and UNIX, run the following command from a shell environment:
3. For each monitoring agent .baroc file to load into the rule base, run the
following command from the same command prompt:
wrb -imprbclass /tmp/<agent_baroc_file> <rb_name>
