IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version

Override a monitoring level

  1. For the server or group to override its current monitoring level....

    The Modify Server settings page opens.

  2. Click to select a monitoring level from the override monitoring level drop down box.

    If you select L2, you will be given the option to check MP for Method Profiling.

    The time interval setting in Enable Method Profiling is for how often the data collector should aggregate method data and push the data to the Managing Server. For example, if the interval setting is 60 minutes, then it means, every 60 minutes, the data collector aggregates the method data and push the data to the Managing Server.

    To disable the Method Profiling feature, clear "Enable Method Profiling". You can view the method profile reports on the Method Profiling Management page. If you override the system default monitoring level, the request sampling setting will also be changed according to the default monitoring level that the server is running on.

  3. Click OK.
