IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Reconfiguring the data collector to bypass the Port Consolidator - WAS agent

If after configuring the data collector to use the Port Consolidator, you want the data collector to bypass the Port Consolidator:

  1. Unconfigure the data collector in the Visualization Engine (Application Monitor) user interface:

    1. Start the Managing Server.

    2. From the top navigation, click Administration > Server Management > Data Collector Configuration.

      The data collector Management page opens.

    3. Go to the Configured data collectors at the top of the page.

    4. To unconfigure the data collector, select the check box that is next to the data collector, and click Apply.

    The unconfigured data collector is added to the Unconfigured data collectors page.

    Notes:

    1. If the data collection has reports associated with it, you are prompted to delete those reports before unconfiguring the data collector.

    2. For further information about unconfiguring a data collector in the WAS administrative console, see the section on unconfiguring a data collector in the IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics: User's Guide.

  2. Stop the Port Consolidator.

      ./proxyserverctrl_ws.sh stop

  3. Verify that the Port Consolidator is stopped...

      ./proxyserverctrl_ws.sh list

    You will now see the message KERNELPROXY is down.

  4. Reconfigure the data collector to bypass the Port Consolidator:

    1. Stop the application server.

    2. Edit DC_home/runtime/app_server_version.node_name.server_name/custom/datacollector_custom.properties file and remove the following lines from the end of the file:

        proxy.host=IP address of data collector
        proxy.port=port

    3. Check for the same lines in the DC_home/runtime/appserver_version.node_name.server_name/appserver_version.node_name.server_name.datacollector.properties file; if they are present, remove them.

    4. Restart the instance of the application server monitored by the data collector.

  5. In the Self-Diagnosis page of the Visualization Engine (Application Monitor) user interface, check to see that the data collector is listed. The data collector will show up as unconfigured.

  6. Check the configuration of your data collector. In the Visualization Engine (Application Monitor) user interface, click Administration > Server Management > Data Collector Configuration.

    The data collector will be listed. However, it will be showing as unavailable.

  7. View Unconfigured data collectors.

    Your data collector will be listed.
