Chapter 11. Integration with Tivoli Monitoring 487
You can use any of these to monitor basic functions of your OS. Additionally, there are
numerous modules that provide special monitoring capabilities for additional software
products. There are modules for:
WebSphere® Application Server
Microsoft Active Directory
If you want in depth monitoring for your IBM Tivoli Storage Resource Manager DB2 instance,
you can use these additional modules.
In our examples here, we use the shipped monitor Parametric Services to watch the status of
the Windows services, which are required to run IBM Tivoli Storage Resource Manager.
Additionally, there is a default action to restart stopped services.
11.3 Daemons to monitor and restart actions
This section describes how to configure IBM Tivoli Monitoring to monitor the IBM Tivoli
Storage Resource Manager Windows services.
Open the Tivoli Desktop and navigate to your Monitoring Policy Region (Figure 11-2).
Figure 11-2 Policy Region tonga-region
Create a profile manager to contain the monitoring profiles. Select Create -> Profile
Manager and create a dataless Profile manager, called PM_DM_ITSRM in our example

Figure 11-3 Profile Manager PM_DM_ITSANM
Open the Profile Manager, select Create -> Profile and choose a Tmw2kProfile (which is the
Monitoring profile resource). If this entry does not show up in the list, make sure the
Tmw2kProfile is in the managed resources list of the Policy Region. Figure 11-4 shows a
Profile called P_DM_ITSRM in .
Figure 11-4 Create Monitoring Profile
Double click on the newly created profile and in the screen that appears, click Add with
Defaults. This opens a chooser window, where you can select the resource model you want
to add to your profile. In the Category list box, choose Windows and select the Parametric
Services entry (Figure 11-5).

In this window, we can adjust all attributes belonging to that resource model. To specify the
services to monitor open the Parameters window (Figure 11-7). You must enter the names of
the services exactly as they appear in the Windows Registry under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services. The services which IBM
Tivoli Storage Area Network Manager needs to run are:

Click Apply Changes and Close to close the window, bring up the next dialog with the
Indications button. As you can see from the definitions, the default action, when a service is
stopped or failed, is to restart the service automatically. Additionally a CRITICAL TEC event is
generated (Figure 11-8).
