View target resource information using the job manager
In a flexible management environment, we can view server, application, cluster, and host resources associated with targets and target groups registered to the job manager. We can also view the status of specific resources at each target, and view properties for a particular target resource as a name-value pair.
Before we can view information about target resources, you must have registered at least one target with the job manager.
The type of resources we can view depends on the topology. For example, we cannot view clusters if a deployment manager that you registered to the job manager does not have a defined cluster.
The first time you access the Target resource collection page, no target resources are listed. We must enter parameters for the Find option to obtain a list of target resources based on the parameter information that you provide. The next time you select Jobs > Target resources, a list of target resources are displayed based on the parameters you last specified on the Find option for this console page. We can then optionally modify the Find option criteria to display a different set of target resources. After at least one target resource displays, we can view information about the target resources.
The Target resource collection page is in the console for a job manager and for a deployment manager.
- Optionally use the Find option to display a set of target resources.
If no target resources are displayed, use the Find option to display target resources based on the parameter information that you enter.
- Click Jobs > Target resources in the console navigation.
- Choose the resource type in the Type list.
- To do a Find operation on specific parameters, specify a valid operator and a text string.
- Click Find.
The list of target resources along with the number of target resources for a given target resource in the list and the target for the resource are displayed.
- Optionally display the status of specific target resources for each target.
- Click Jobs > Target resources > resource in an console.
The resource ID, target name, and resource status are displayed.
- Optionally display the properties of a target resource by clicking Jobs > Target resources > resource > resource_ID in an console.
Depending on the tasks that you completed, we might have viewed server, application, and cluster resources associated with targets and target groups registered to the job manager. You might have also viewed the status of specific resources at each target, and viewed properties for a particular target resource as a name-value pair.
Avoid trouble: Resource information is not updated automatically. To update it, run an inventory job on the managed resource.gotcha
What to do next
We can continue to view target resources and do other job management tasks such as submit jobs, create target groups for job submission, and view targets.
