Introduction
ManageEngine® Applications Manager is a comprehensive application monitoring software used to
monitor heterogeneous business applications such as web applications, application servers, web servers,
databases, network services, systems, virtual systems, cloud resources, etc. It provides remote business
management to the applications or resources in the network. It is a powerful tool for system and network
administrators, helping them monitor any number of applications or services running in the network
without much manual effort.
Applications Manager offers out-of-the-box discovery, availability, health, performance and fault
management, and reporting of multi-vendor applications.
Alarms are generated to notify the faults in the application and are configured to trigger actions, such as
notifying the user through e-mail, SMS, trap, executing a command and invoking a MBean operation.
Through alarms, you can identify the root cause of any problem in the network with just a few clicks.
Additionally, the flexible architecture of the Applications Manager allows you to manage any application
(J2EE or J2SE) that exposes management information via JMX or SNMP through custom applications.
Note: By clicking on the Help link in the Web Client, you can access the context sensitive help
pages.

Differences between Windows and Linux versions of
Applications Manager
Although most of the Applications Manager features are supported on both the Windows and Linux
versions, there are certain features which are only available in the Windows version.
Features supported only in the Windows Version:
The Microsoft applications/servers listed below can be monitored only using the Windows version of
Applications Manager. This is because the data collection happens through WMI (Windows Management
Instrumentation):
•
Exchange Server
•
Active Directory
•
Microsoft .Net
•
Hyper-V
•
MSMQ
•
SharePoint
•
IIS Server
•
Windows Performance Counters(any parameter related to Win32_PerfFormattedData)
Apart from these monitors, other features that are supported only in the Windows version are:
Event log rules: Any event can be monitored and notified when it occurs. This is useful when any
application generates a failure event in the Windows Event log viewer. This is helpful in a way that the
event log comes before the application actually crashes. This serves as a proactive mode of monitoring
your applications and services.
NTLM authenticated URLs and Recording HTTP(s) Sequence/Real Browser Monitor(RBM): You can
record the HTTP(s) sequence through Recorder.exe tool which works only from a Windows OS. However,
you will be able to save the sequence to Applications Manager on a Linux OS.
NOTE: In the Linux Version of Applications Manager, Windows Server Monitoring is possible only in the
SNMP mode.

(applicable only for Linux).
1. Create a text with the same name as that of the installer and with extension as ".sp". i.e, For
<File Name>.bin, create a text file named <File Name>.sp
Example: If the file name is ManageEngine_ApplicationsManager_9_linux.bin, create a text
file named ManageEngine_ApplicationsManager_9_linux.sp
2. Open the ".sp" text file in an editor, add is.debug=1 as the content.
3. Save the ".sp" text file in the same directory where the binary file resides.
4. Change to the directory where the binary file is present by executing cd command
5. Invoke the installer as ./<File Name>.bin -is:javaconsole -is:log log.txt
6. The above command will create the log file named log.txt. Mail the log file to [email protected]
Note: If the execution of the installation command throws an error such as "there may not be enough
temporary space available in the temp folder", then execute the file with the argument as
[for Windows] - <File Name>.exe -is:tempdir $DIRNAME
[for Linux]
- ./<File Name>.bin -is:tempdir $DIRNAME
where $DIRNAME is the absolute path of any existing directory.

•
Change the "accept-all" property to "true" for the "jmx-connector" node :
<jmx-connector accept-all="true"
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
52
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
The configuration line should look like this :
<jmx-connector accept-all="true" address="0.0.0.0" auth-realmname="admin-realm" enabled="true" name="system" port="8686"
protocol="rmi_jrmp" security-enabled="false"/>
JBoss
To monitor JBoss, the http-invoker.sar should be deployed in the JBoss Server. The
application (http-invoker.sar) is by default deployed in the JBoss server.
If the http port of the JBoss server is changed then the port number in the attribute
InvokerURLSuffix should also be modified in jboss-3.2.0/server/default/deploy/httpinvoker.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml file.
To monitor JBoss 5.0.0 version and above jbossagent.sar should be deployed in JBoss
server.
To deploy, follow the steps below
Copy jbossagent.sar from location <Applications Manager home>/working/resources
and paste under <JBOSS_HOME>/server/default/deploy. If you are running JBoss in
different domain like all, then deployment target folder would be
<JBOSS_HOME>/server/all/deploy.
Oracle Application Server
Applications Manager uses the Dynamic Monitoring Service (DMS) provided by Oracle
Application Server to monitor the same. For this reason, the DMS Servlet has to be made
accessible to the system where the Applications Manager is running.
To enable the access, please follow the instructions provided below
[The instructions are referred from the Oracle website :
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B14099_16/core.1012/b14001/monitor.htm#sthref86]
By default, the dms0/AggreSpy URL is redirected and the redirect location is protected,
allowing only the localhost (127.0.0.1) to access the AggreSpy Servlet.
To view metrics from a system other than the localhost you need to change the DMS
configuration for the system that is running the Oracle Application Server that you want to
monitor by modifying the file $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf/dms.conf on UNIX,
or %ORACLE_HOME%\Apache\Apache\conf\dms.conf on Windows systems.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
53
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
The following example shows a sample default configuration from dms.conf. This
configuration limits AggreSpy to access metrics on the localhost (127.0.0.1). The port
shown, 7200, may differ on your installation.
Example: Sample dms.conf File for localhost Access for DMS Metrics
# proxy to DMS AggreSpy
Redirect /dms0/AggreSpy http://localhost:7200/dmsoc4j/AggreSpy
#DMS VirtualHost for access and logging control
Listen 127.0.0.1:7200
OpmnHostPort http://localhost:7200
<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:7200>
ServerName 127.0.0.1
By changing the dms.conf configuration to specify the host that provides, or serves DMS
metrics, you can allow users on systems other than the localhost to access the DMS
metrics from the location http://host:port/dms0/AggreSpy.
Caution: Modifying dms.conf has security implications. Only modify this file if you
understand the security implications for your site. By exposing metrics to systems other
than the localhost, you allow other sites to potentially view critical Oracle Application
Server internal status and runtime information.
To view metrics from a system other than the localhost (127.0.0.1), do the following:
•
Modify dms.conf by changing the entries with the value for localhost "127.0.0.1"
shown in Example to the name of the server providing the metrics (obtain the
server name from the ServerName directive in the httpd.conf file, for example
tv.us.oracle.com).
•
Find below a sample updated dms.conf that allows access from a system other
than the localhost (127.0.0.1).
Example: Sample dms.conf File for Remote Host Access for DMS Metrics
# proxy to DMS AggreSpy
Redirect /dms0/AggreSpy http://tv.us.oracle.com:7200/dmsoc4j/AggreSpy
#DMS VirtualHost for access and logging control
Listen tv.us.oracle.com:7200
OpmnHostPort http://tv.us.oracle.com:7200
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
54
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
<VirtualHost tv.us.oracle.com:7200>
ServerName tv.us.oracle.com
•
Restart, or stop and start the Oracle HTTP Server using Application Server
Control Console or using the Oracle Process Manager and Notification Server
opmnctl command.
For example,
%opmnctl restartproc process-type=HTTP_Server
or
%opmnctl stopproc process-type=HTTP_Server
%opmnctl startproc process-type=HTTP_Server
After performing the above steps, please ensure that you are able to
access the url http://<host>:7200/dmsoc4j/AggreSpy from the
Applications Manager system.
Tomcat
AdventNet agent has to be deployed in Tomcat Servers 3.x and 4.x. More

Database Servers
MS SQL Database Server
For monitoring a MS SQL database server the user should be permitted to access the
MASTER and MSDB databases. He must log in using either the Public and
Db_datareader roles for both MASTER and MSDB databases.
For SQL 2005, 2008 and 2012 servers the 'View Server State' permission should be
also present. If you would like to monitor SQL Server using SQL named instance, you
need to ensure that the 'SQL Browser Service' is running in the system.
To grant View Server State, you can use any of the following methods :
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
59
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
1) Execute the following query
GRANT VIEW SERVER STATE TO username;
2) In SQL management studio for user choose Properties -> Securables -> Click Add (
under securables ) -> choose "All objects of the Types..." -> choose Servers -> choose
Grant for "View server state" permission.
Note:
The collation option for Applications Manager's backend MS SQL Database is caseinsensitive.
MySQL Database Server
While monitoring a MySQL database server ensure that you assign a user name that has
permission to access the MySQL database from the host where Applications Manager is
running. An alternate way is to add a relevant user who has the privileges to do the
same.
The user should have privileges to execute SELECT, SHOW DATABASES,
REPLICATION commands in the MySQL server.
For enabling these privileges, execute the following commands in the remote MySQL
Server:
INSERT INTO user (Host,User) VALUES('<host>','<user>');
GRANT SELECT,SHOW DATABASES,REPLICATION CLIENT ON *.* TO
'<user>'@'<host>';
FLUSH PRIVILEGES; (Use the host name - Applications Manager machine).
PostgreSQL
Applications Manager uses PostgreSQL's subsystem statistics collector to monitor
PostgreSQL server activity. By default, the statistics collector is accessible.
If you have problems in adding a new PostgreSQL server, follow the steps given below:
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
60
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
1. Open postgresql.conf under <postgres home>/data
2. Check value of configuration parameter listen address it has to be "*", if not
change it to "*". Click here for more details on configuring postgresql.conf
3. Open pg_hba.conf under /data
4. Add a new line host all all 0.0.0.0/0 md5 to allow all machines with proper
password authentication to access PostgreSQL DB server. Click here for more
details on configuring pg_hba.conf
CLOUD APPS
Windows Azure
•
To add Windows Azure in Applications Manager, you must first export file of your Windows Azure
Managed Certificates (eg., testcertificate.pfx) and password of the pfx file.
•
To monitor Windows Azure in Applications Manager, invoke the batch script
exportCertificateToAppManager.bat in the <Applications Manager Home>\bin directory.
ERP
Oracle EBS
Applications Manager uses the Dynamic Monitoring Service (DMS) to monitor
performance and availability of Oracle E-Business Suite.For this reason, the DMS Servlet
has to be made accessible to the system where the Applications Manager is running.
By default, the dms0/AggreSpy URL is protected, allowing only the localhost (127.0.0.1)
to access the AggreSpy Servlet. To view metrics from a system other than the localhost,
you need to change the DMS configuration for the system running the Oracle EBS.
This can be done as follows:
Step 1: Open the trusted.conf file under $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf on
UNIX, or %ORACLE_HOME%\Apache\Apache\conf\ on Windows systems and add the
Applications Manager Hostname and IPaddress in the "Allow from" list.
<Location ~ "/(dms0|DMS|Spy|AggreSpy)">
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from localhost
Allow from <list of TRUSTED IPs>
</Location>
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
61
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
Step 2: Now open the httpd.conf and httpd_pls.conf file and check if the trusted.conf file
is included. The best way is to check if the word trusted.conf is available in these files. If
not add the following lines and save the files:
# Include the trusted.conf file
include $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf/trusted.conf
Step 3: Restart Oracle E-Business Suite and ensure that you are able to access the url
http://<host>:<port>/dms0/AggreSpy from the Applications Manager system.
Note:
Modifying trusted.conf has security implications. Modify this file only if you understand the
security implications for your site. By exposing metrics to systems other than the
localhost, you allow other sites to potentially view critical Oracle EBS Server internal
status and runtime information.

VMware Virtual Infrastructure Groups
Applications Manager can discover your entire VMware virtual infrastructure through the vCenter server
and provide dependency mapping of its components. The ‘VMware Virtual Infrastructure Group’ allows
you to quickly discover all your virtual resources and model them the same way they are configured in the
vCenter server. The VMware infrastructure will be automatically categorized into components such as
Datacenter, Cluster, ESX/ESXi hosts, VMs, etc. Once you discover the virtual infrastructure, you can
easily track the availability, health and performance metrics of its various components.
The VMware virtual infrastructure group is different from monitor groups due to the fact that you have to
manually map all the resources to a monitor group. In the VMware virtual infrastructure group, the virtual
resources in your network are automatically discovered through the vCenter server and the components
mapped accordingly. When combined with the out-of-the-box support for 50+ applications, servers,
databases, and transactions spanning physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures along with autoprovisioning of virtual systems, the VMware virtual infrastructure group becomes even more powerful.
Creating a New VMware Virtual Infrastructure Group
Follow the steps given below to create a VMware Virtual Infrastructure group:
1. Click New Monitor Group and select VMware Virtual Infrastructure from the drop-down menu.
The ‘Discover Virtual Infrastructure through vCenter’ screen will be displayed.

Example:
Default configurations in tomcat-users.xml in Tomcat Server.
<tomcat-users>
<role rolename="tomcat" />
<role rolename="role1" />
<user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat" />
<user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1" />
<user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1" />
</tomcat-users>
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.

Configurations based on Tomcat Server Deployment
Monitoring of Tomcat Server depends on its deployment. This section explains the possible
deployment scenarios of Tomcat. Your configuration of host name and the port depends on these
scenarios.
1. Standalone Tomcat Server
This is a general scenario wherein you have a Tomcat server which has the HTTP (apache) within
its deployment. In this case, when configuring a tomcat monitor, specify the host name of the
Tomcat server and the port of the HTTP.
2. One Tomcat Server (with HTTP) and one external instance of Apache
There is one Tomcat server with HTTP (apache) instance running in it and another external
Apache running outside.
Example: Tomcat server name: Tomcat A; HTTP (in Tomcat server) port: 8080; External
Apache server port: 80
In this case, while configuring for a Tomcat monitor, specify the host name as 'Tomcat A'
and specify the port of the HTTP that runs with the Tomcat and not the external Apache,
i.e., specify the port as 8080 and not 80.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
86
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
3. One Tomcat Server (without HTTP) and one external instance of Apache
There is one Tomcat server without HTTP in it and another external Apache running.
Example: Tomcat server name: Tomcat A; HTTP (in Tomcat server) port: Not available;
External Apache server port: 80
In this case, while configuring for a Tomcat monitor, specify the host name as 'Tomcat A'
and specify the port of the external Apache, i.e., 80.
4. Multiple Tomcat Server (with HTTP instances in each of these servers) and one external
instance of Apache
There are multiple Tomcat servers, say 3, with HTTP instances in each of them and another
external Apache running.
Example: Tomcat Server names: Tomcat A, Tomcat B, Tomcat C; HTTP (in Tomcat
servers) port: 8070, 8080, 8090 respectively; External Apache server port: 80
In this case, you need to create tomcat server monitor individually for Tomcat A, Tomcat B,
and Tomcat C and specify their ports as 8070, 8080, and 8090 respectively.
5. Multiple Tomcat Server (without HTTP instances in these servers) and one external
instance of Apache
There are multiple Tomcat servers, say 3, without HTTP instances in them and another external
Apache running.
Example: Tomcat Server names: Tomcat A, Tomcat B, Tomcat C; HTTP (in Tomcat
servers) port: Not available; External Apache server port: 80
You can monitor only one of the instances in this case. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to have it added.

HTTP URL Monitors
In an environment, where downtime of any website applications and services can cause negative impact
on the business performance, problems must be accurately identified and solved. Applications Manager
acts as a continuous URL monitoring service that keeps a constant watch over the specified URL or
website pages. They test the website applications and web services to ensure that they are functioning
properly.
URL monitors verify the availability of specified, addressable, standard HTTP and HTTPS URLs. They
scan the HTTP and HTTPS pages looking for a predefined keyword to check whether the website is
available.
There are two ways of URL monitoring provided by Applications Manager.
•
HTTP(s)-URLs
•
HTTP(s)-URL Sequence Recorder (Transaction Recorder Tool)
The difference between the two types of monitoring is that URL Monitoring monitors single HTTP and
HTTPS URL, whereas URL sequence monitors a set of HTTP and HTTPS URLs in sequence. Also, any
HTTP and HTTPS URL can be monitored using URL Monitoring.
Please go through the following sections to know about the configuration details.
HTTP-URLs
To configure for URL monitoring, follow the given steps:
1. Select New Monitor. Choose HTTP-URLs.
2. Provide any display name for the HTTP-URL monitoring.
3. Provide the HTTP/HTTPS URL address, you want to monitor.
4. Enter any keyword as match content. The URL monitoring searches the keyword in the content
of the URL page to check the availability of the URL. This is optional.
Note: The content search is case-sensitive. If you provide 2 words, the content match is
performed for the words separately. For example, if you specify the content as applications
manager, the match is found for applications and manager separately. If you need the content
match to be performed for the complete text, specify the 2 words in quotes, example
"applications manager".
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
110
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
5. Provide the polling interval for which Applications Manager updates the status of the monitor.
6. Choose between the Post and Get, which are the two types of Form method for any
HTTP/HTTPS URL.
7. Click Add URL Monitor to initiate monitoring of the specified URL.
Apart from the basic URL Monitoring, Applications Manager also provides you with advanced options that
furnish effective and more flexible URL Monitoring. This is optional and you need to choose these options
only if the HTTP/ HTTPS URL requires Form-based authentication.
1. Provide the request parameters, if any. The request parameters must be provided as
name=value pairs for Post and Get methods.
For example, if you want to monitor a URL like,
http://appmanager:9090/showresource.do?haid=1&type=UrlMonitor&method=getMonitorForm,
then provide "?haid=1&type=UrlMonitor&method=getMonitorForm" as request parameter.
2. Enter a keyword which when matches with the content in the URL must be notified of error in
Error If Match field. Note: The search is case sensitive. Multiple keywords should be put within
quotes. Otherwise, it will be treated as 'Any' one of the multiple keywords.
3. Enter the Response Code details by choosing them from the combo box. By default, it is greater
than 200. Hence the error will be notified once the criteria mentioned are met.
4. Enter the time, in minutes, for which the URL monitor should wait for a page to complete
downloading before timing out in Time out field.
5. Check "If monitor detects error, re-try immediately to verify error", where the monitoring is
automatically performed when it detects an error, i.e. when an error is detected, the monitor will
immediately be scheduled to run again once.
6. Provide the User name and password, if the URL requires Form-based authentication.
Note: To monitor NTLM authenticated URLs, copy the cryptix-jce-provider.jar from
http://www.cryptix.org/cryptix-jce-20050328-snap.zip to <AppMgr Home>\lib\ext. Restart Applications
Manager.
HTTP-URL Sequence Recorder (Transaction Recorder Tool)
The purpose of URL Sequence is to monitor multiple web pages of an online application. It checks pages
with dynamically generated information enhancing interactive transactions such as logging into a login
page, creating an account using a web form, instructing the application to perform some action, etc.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
111
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
URL Sequencing starts with a specific URL such as the Login page and then followed by additional
links/URL in it. The URL Sequence monitoring thus performs end-to-end verification of particular
transactions helping you to troubleshoot any problems while monitoring.
Note: If you are connecting to an URL using a proxy server, then you must configure proxy to initiate
the URL sequence monitoring. Refer to the Configuring Proxy section of Performing Admin Activities,
for further details.
You can use the Transaction Recorder Tool to record all user online transactions in their exact
sequence. These transactions will then be replayed at regular intervals of time and notifications will be
sent when any error is detected.

Monitoring Dynamic URLs:
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
115
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
For Eg., If your login page has some hidden parameter that needs to be submitted while logging into your
application and also the value for the hidden parameter is different for each login request. In this case, the
hidden parameter value in the login page needs to be fetched dynamically and passed to the subsequent
URL.
For monitoring these kind of dynamic URL Sequences, you can use $<Parameter name> [eg.,
$sessionID = 12] in the Request Parameter text box of the URL. So, while monitoring the URL Sequence,
$<Parameter name> will fetch the dynamic values and pass it to the next URL in the sequence.
Note: While using the Recorder tool, you cannot specify the parameters in the Request Parameter text
box, so instead, after adding the URL Sequence, go to corresponding URL's 'Edit Monitor' and enter the
parameters.

Script Monitors
Custom script monitoring can be a tedious task if the output of the scripts that are run, are to be
monitored manually. Applications Manager provides with script monitoring functionality to ease the
process by automatically monitoring the output of in-house custom scripts (Windows/Linux) and by
creating alarms as per the configuration. Script monitor allows you to monitor the script that is present in
the local system or in the remote system, transfers the output to an Output File, parses the output and
executes the actions configured.
To add Script Monitor, follow the given steps:
1. Click New Monitor. Choose Script Monitor.
2. Enter the Display Name of the Monitor.
3. Choose whether the script to be monitored is present in the Local Server or in a Remote
Server
4. If it is Local Server, Give the absolute path of the Script to be Monitored and also the absolute
path of the directory from which the script should be executed. The execution directory should
in the same hierarchy of the 'script to be monitored' directory structure.
5. Under Output Settings, Give the Output file name with absolute path.
6. Enter the Name of the String and Numeric attributes.
7. Enter the value of Delimiter used in the output file. By default, it is "=". If you don't specify a
delimiter, then 'space' would be considered as a delimiter.
8. If you want to monitor a tabular Output file, enter the details of the tables - Name, String and
Numeric column attributes, delimiter and also specify which attribute is the Unique Column.
Note: Inorder to identify a tabular output file, execute the following commands before and
after the actual script.
echo<--table <table-name> starts-->
[Script Commands]
echo<--table <table-name> ends-->
This would enable Applications Manager to identify the Output File's table.
And also, it is mandatory to have the file headers as the first line in the file.
9. Specify the Arguments. For e.g., hostname 80 http
10. Set the Polling Interval. By default, it is 5 minutes
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
127
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
11. Specify the Timeout value in seconds. The value can be the maximum time taken by the script
to execute.
12. In Linux, Specify the mode in which script should be executed. By default, it is "sh".
13. f the script is in a remote server, select the Host Name from the list
14. If the remote server is a new host, then enter the server's Host Name / IP Address. Choose the
mode of monitoring - Telnet or SSH.
15. Enter the User Name and Password of the server.
16. Enter the Port number - Default Telnet port no: 23, SSH: 22
17. Specify the command prompt value, which is the last character in your command prompt.
Default value is $ and possible values are >, #, etc.
18. Upon adding the script monitor, you can view the details of the newly added Script Monitor
Example:
To monitor a script interfacestatus.bat that creates a user defined table called InterfaceStats and user
defined parameters like DiskStatus, DiskErrors and No. ofProcess, in the output file
interfacestatusoutput.txt
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
128
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
In the Script Monitor creation form, give the absolute path of the script : c:\interfacestatus.bat
Output settings:
Give the absolute path of Output file: c:\interfacestatusoutput.txt
Give DiskStatus as the string attribute, No.ofProcess and DiskErrors are the numeric attributes with
Delimiter "="
If you want to monitor statistics in a table format , select Tables in output file.
Here, we have the table InterfaceStats with the stats Name, IP, Status, In, Out where Name, IP, Status
are string attributes; In & Out are numeric attributes. The Delimiter is the separater between the two
column names -> space. If tab is the delimiter, then give \t . Usually tab will be the delimiter for sql queries
results.
Note: The starting tag of the table, InterfaceStats is "<--table InterfaceStats starts-->" and the end tag is
"<--table InterfaceStats ends-->". Also, the first line of the table should contain the attribute names. The
attribute names or the column names should also be separated by the same delimiter used to separate
the data rows and that is specified as the column delimiter. In this case, they are Name, IP, Status, In and
out. The remaining lines between the start and end tag should comprise of the actual data. Make sure
that the delimiter for the table is unique and you should specify that as the column delimiter.
Unique Column is the attribute that doesn't repeat itself in the rows and identify the row by that value.
Here it is IP.

Monitor Groups topic.
There are situations where the host gets automatically discovered with the Monitor running in the host. To
disable the default option, disable it using Global Settings.
It is important to note that if Applications Manager server is running in Windows machine, then it can
monitor any type of host but if the server is running in Linux, then it can monitor Windows only if an SNMP
agent is running in it. Also, any type of user can be used to log into Linux, whereas only Admin users can
log into Windows.
Note: The important configuration details that are required while discovering host resource by
Applications Manager are available in Appendix - Data Collection.
Mode of Monitoring - SSH/Telnet vs SNMP
We recommend Telnet or SSH mode of monitoring because the following attributes are not available
through SNMP:
• Disk I/O Stats
• Process Monitoring - CPU Utilization
• Swap Memory Utilization
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
132
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
Please check this link for more details
System administrators generally prefer to check system resources with commands and will prefer to
compare it with the SSH/telnet mode output, rather than running SNMP walk to compare. Also, having the
connection to the Linux boxes over SSH will make it easier for you to configure the same for script
monitors or 'execute program' actions if required.

Application Log Files on multiple servers etc.
Custom Monitor Demo: Have a look at the demo that helps you to add a new Custom Monitor Type
WorkFlow
Step1) The custom monitor type helps you create and define metrics / attributes that will be tracked.
Step 2) Then specify a script (Linux Shell Script / Windows Batch File) that needs to be executed to get
the data and provide it to Applications Manager in the appropriate format.
In these scripts users can use any mechanism to get the data. For example users can :
•
Invoke a Java Program, PHP, Python Scripts etc and make database calls to pull data and feed it
to Applications Manager
•
Can make native calls to other programs and pipe the data to the output file
•
Parse Log Files and give a summary of metrics as the input to Applications Manager
Creating New Monitor Types:
You can create new monitor type by clicking on the 'New Monitor Type' link inside the New Monitor link or
by clicking on the Custom Monitor Types icon under Admin tab.

them to the new monitor type defined.
[Script Monitor Overview: Based on the polling interval, Applications Manager executes the script to be
monitored. The script will transfer its output to another specific Output File configured. The output of the
script should be in a Key=Value format where '=' can be any delimiter. Applications Manager parses the
Output File and executes the actions configured]
Adding Custom Monitors:
•
In the User Created Monitor Type screen, the newly created monitor types are listed down. Click
on the Add New icon to add the monitors
•
Add New monitor screen opens up, Select the custom monitor type from Monitor Types drop
down box. [ For eg., Siebel]
o
Enter the Display Name.
o
Choose the location of script that you want to monitor - Local or Remote.
o
Specify the absolute path of the script.
o
Specify the absolute path of the execution directory.
o
Specify the absolute path of the Output File
o
Enter the arguments that needs to be passed.
o
Enter the polling interval and timeout.
o
Click Add Monitor(s)
You have already given the attributes to be monitored as common to all monitors under custom
Monitor Type. So there is no need to give input attributes to be monitored again
•
Upon adding the custom monitors, you can see the performance attributes in the monitor details
page.
Usage Scenario 1: Creating New Siebel Monitor Type
One customer had 6 Siebel applications running in 6 different machines. As, out of the box support for
Siebel Application is not available, he uses the Script Monitoring feature of ManageEngine Applications
Manager to monitor his applications. He has identical scripts running in the 6 machines and they produce
the same output in the output file in the respective machines. Now he configures them as six Script
Monitors. This gives him an opportunity to monitor his Siebel applications. Using Script Monitor facility, he
monitors the following attributes
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
142
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
•
transaction Router
•
server request processor
•
transaction processor
There are few disadvantages in his usage.
1. He has to give the same Output details while specifying the same six applications.
2. If he has to edit / add / delete the attributes , then he has to do so in all the 6 Script Monitors.
3. Further he would like to see them as 6 Siebel Monitors rather than 6 Script Monitors.
Here comes the usage of New Monitor Type, that would avoid all the above inconveniences.
1. Output Settings can be specified only once. You could specify the Scalar String / Numeric attributes
and tabular settings only once while defining the type, say Siebel.
2. You could create any number of monitor instances for that particular type , just like any other in-built
type say SAP / Weblogic / Oracle monitors in Applications Manager. While doing so, you just need to
specify the Hostname and the corresponding Scripts
3. Adding / Deleting / Modifying attributes of some particular monitor type commonly will affect all the
monitors of that monitor type.
4. Now you will be seeing 6 Siebel monitors rather than 6 Script Monitors.
5. Reports can be enabled for this type like any other type.
The same concept can be applied to any other application say for monitoring People Soft applications.
Usage Scenario 2: Business Intelligence Dashboard
Users can build custom Business Intelligence dashboards and have it reported and alerted on. Some
possible metrics could be
•
Call Volume in the last one Month
•
Time taken to finish a call
•
Number of simultaneous Calls
Usage Scenario 3: Custom Application Log Files
Some metrics that you can add with a little bit of coding are :
•
Number of security breaches
•
Number of Errors During Login etc.
Managing Custom Monitor Types:
You can edit the configuration of the Monitor types by clicking on the Custom Monitor Type link under
Admin Tab. It opens up to list all the User created Monitor Types. From here you add new monitors to the

Database Query Monitor
Database Query Monitor is used to monitor a single or a specific set of queries for any given database.
•
Availability tab, gives the Availability history for the past 24 hours or 30 days.
•
Performance tab gives the Health Status and events for the past 24 hours or 30 days.
•
List view enables you to perform bulk admin configurations.
Using a single query or a given set of queries, you can monitor the status of any given database using
Applications Manager Database Query monitor. Queries are the best way to find out whether your
database is up and running 24x7. In business enterprises such as an online store, there are a number of
applications and databases used for e-commerce. Any interruption in such an environment could mean
only one thing: loss of revenue.
The execution of such a query or a set of queries can be automated by setting the polling interval. By
fixing the polling interval, user can automate this process and the results are obtained at the end of the
polling. The result includes execution time (time taken by the query to provide results) and also displays
any error that may occur during regular polling intervals. These errors help identify any issue that may
occur with the database.
Let us consider an example. Many enterprise environment run critical applications which need to be up
and running 24x7. Let us assume, the status of such applications are maintained in a
"APPLICATION_STATUS" table. Using Database Query monitor, the user shall be able to send a select
set of queries to that database to find out if they are operational or not.
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
| APPLICATIONS_STATUS

ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
SELECT * APPLICATIONS_STATUS
By executing the above command using Database Query monitor, the user will then obtain the list of
applications that are running along with its status. The user can then identify the applications whose
status is 'Critical' and then carry out necessary action by configuring Alarms in Applications Manager.
This action could be in the form of creating a ticket, or executing a script to rectify the problem.
Database Query monitor can also be used to identify any bottle necks in the networks which are linked to
several databases and help remove them by identifying the correct database which has the issue. This
bottle neck issue can arise because there is a problem with the one of applications or with the databases.
Using Database Query monitor, user can then execute a given set of queries and analyze the result
which provides a clear indication of the error that has caused such an occurance. The result includes the
execution time (time taken by the query to generate the result). If the execution time is above a certain
pre-assigned threshold, then the issue is with the database or if the result is below the pre-assigned
threshold, then the issue is elswhere.
The Database Query monitor currently supports the following set of databases queries:
•
MySQL
•
MS SQL
•
Sybase
•
DB2
•
Oracle and
•
Postgres
Applications Manager also provides the ability to compare various column value in the output by attributes
types. Option to Enable or Disable Reports is provided.
Note: Please note that the number of queries is limited to five queries. Total number of rows shown in
the output is limited to 50 rows.

Script Monitors
Applications Manager provides Script Monitoring functionality to automatically monitor the output of adhoc Windows/Linux/Solaris scripts that are used in-house.
•
During creation of a new script monitor, you need to give the location of the custom script (local /
remote), attributes (numeric/string) to be monitored, the Output File in which the output is going
to be redirected and the polling interval.
•
Based on the polling interval, Applications Manager executes the script.
•
The script will transfer its output to the Output File configured. The output of the script should be
in a Key=Value format where '=' can be any delimiter.
•
Applications Manager parses the Output File and executes the actions configured. It enables you
to alert an Administrator or automatically take corrective actions by way executing other OS
scripts.
•
Reports for the attributes configured would be shown as graphs. Option to enable or disable
reports is given.
Availability tab, gives the Availability history for the past 24 hours or 30 days. Performance tab gives the
Health Status and events for the past 24 hours or 30 days. List view enables you to perform bulk admin
configurations.
Overriding Availability and Response Time of the Script:
This option would be useful, if you want to override the response time measured for custom scripts using
a defined value in the output file. Applications Manager looks for few reserved keywords in the output file,
if it matches then it will replace the corresponding attribute.
For eg., if the script output is looking like this,
script_availability=1 (Allowed values are 0 or 1. "0" refers to success. "1" refers to failure.)
script_message=Server is not running.
script_responsetime=10
Then while parsing the output file, script_availability value will be taken and based on that the availability
is calculated.The same is the case for response time.

Windows Performance Counters
Applications Manager uses WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) for monitoring Windows
Performance Counters. WMI gives preinstalled performance counter classes; each class describes an
object in performance libraries.
For eg., the object that appears in the Perfmon System Monitor named NetworkInterface is represented
in WMI by the Win32_PerfRawData_Tcpip_NetworkInterface class for raw data
Win32_PerfFormattedData_Tcpip_NetworkInterface class for pre-calculated, or "cooked" data.
Currently Applications Manager supports monitoring the counters of classes derived from
Win32_PerfFormattedData
Some of the WMI Performance classes for Performance Objects that are present in Perfmon are
Processor -Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_Processor

Buffer Hit Ratio
Description
When a scan of the buffer cache shows that there are no free buffers,
Database Block Writer determines which blocks to be eliminated based
on a least recently used algorithm or LRU. Having a block required by a
user process in the buffer cache already is called a buffer cache hit or is
determined as a ratio. Hits are good because they reduce the amount of
disk I/O required for the user process.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
217
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
Parameters
Data Dictionary Hit Ratio
Description
The purpose of the row or dictionary cache is to store rows of information
from the data dictionary in memory for faster access. The row cache is
designed to hold the actual rows of data from objects in data dictionary.
While this data is held in the row cache, the users of the database may
access that information more quickly than if Oracle had to read the data
into memory from disk. The ratio of the data gets to the data misses in
the row cache is Data Dictionary Hit Ratio.
Library Hit Ratio
The Library cache stores all shared SQL and PL/SQL blocks, along with
their parse trees. In OLTP environments where a large numbers of users
are entering and exchanging data, there is a great chance for
overlapping the parse and execute needs of those different queries.
Such an overlap in the library is called a cache hit and the ratio
determined to the misses and hits is called Library Cache Hit Ratio.

NoSQL Database Servers
NoSQL databases defined as a non-relational, distributed database, are gaining recognition as an
alternative mode to the relational database management system among the organizations.
Inspite of the fact that NoSQL databases have a number of significant advantages, they share almost an
equal set of setbacks. However when used appropriately, NoSQL databases can offer real benefits. How
will you ensure a smooth and unruffled operation of these boundless unstructured data?
Applications Manager provides NoSQL database monitoring, helping you to keep track of how the
database is used and alerts you on any threshold breaches ensuring the performance of the database to
the highest standards.
The Applications Manager functionality includes the ability to collect metrics like Bytes received / sent per
minute helping to monitor the network traffic, Transaction details, response time, number of open
connections, items cached, etc., from the NoSQL database and present them using our dashboard in a
simple and impactful manner.
The different NoSQL database servers supported are:
•
CassandraDB Server
•
MongoDB Server
•

individual queues and collect metrics which reflect the queue's performance and throughput.
The critical components of RabbitMQ servers include:
•
Queued messages and message rates statistics
•
Node details like socket descriptor and Erlang process utilization
•
Channel statistics like message publish rates
•
Exchange message rates
•
In depth connection status
Monitored Parameters:
RabbitMQ monitoring includes delivering proactive alarm notifications during network congestion,
checking if a consumer is processing slowly or has gone down under heavy message traffic, identifying
performance bottlenecks due to high socket descriptors utilization and generating historical reports.
The Availability view shows an availability history bar graph of the RabbitMQ server. Using the drop-down
list at the right-hand corner of the page, you can set the bar chart to show availability history for the past
24 hours or 30 days.
The Performance tab gives a graphical representation of the publish, delivery, acknowledged and
unacknowledged rates of RabbitMQ server as well as the health history for the past 24 hours or 30 days.
The colored icons at the corners of the graphs pop up a 'heat chart' for the respective metric rate.
The List view lists all the RabbitMQ servers monitored by Applications Manager along with their overall
availability and health status. You can edit the monitor details and configure alarms from the list. You can
also perform bulk admin configurations from this view. Click on the individual monitors listed to view
detailed performance metrics.

Servers
In network-level management, maintaining the status and connectivity of the network, is a picture at a
higher level. It is of prime importance to know the status of the machines in the network, how loaded (or
overloaded) they are and how efficiently they are utilized (or overused) to enable necessary corrective
administrative functions to be performed on the identified overloaded/poorly performing systems.
Server-level management is a down-to-earth concept which involves lot of manual intervention, human
resources, and administrative tasks to be performed. Applications Manager provides with a server-level
monitoring functionality to achieve such goals and to ease the process of configuration management of
hosts.

When it comes to choosing the mode of monitoring for servers, we recommend Telnet/SSH over SNMP.
Page Space in AIX Servers:
To get in-depth details on Page Space in AIX servers, you can use the following command "lsps -a".
The command "lspa -a" lists the location of the paging space logical volumes as they were, not as they
are.
Normally page spaces are used when the process running in the system has used the entire allocated
memory and it has run out of memory space. It then uses the page spaces in the system to move the
piece of code/data that is not currently referenced by the running process into the page space area so
that it could be moved back to the Primary memory when it is been referenced again by the currently
running process.
While trying to monitor the AIX server, if you get "No data Available" for Page Space, you can
troubleshoot it by following the steps given below:
First, you need to establish connection only through TELNET or SSH mode.
Second, check whether the command lsps -a exists in the system and then execute it.
Displaying Paging Space Characteristics
The "lsps" command displays the characteristics of paging spaces, such as the paging space name,
physical volume name, volume group name, size, percentage of the paging space used, whether the
space is active or inactive, and whether the paging space is set to automatic. The paging space
parameter specifies the paging space whose characteristics are to be shown.
The following examples show the use of lsps command with various flags to obtain the paging space
information. The "-c" flag will display the information in colon format and paging space size in physical
partitions.

Adding and Activating a Paging Space
To make a paging space available to the operating system, you must add the paging space and then
make it available. The total space available to the system for paging is the sum of the sizes of all active
paging-space logical volumes.
Note: You should not add paging space to volume groups on portable disks because removing a disk
with an active paging space will cause the system to crash.
You can get more details about the command here: http://web.utanet.at/mario/exam/5129c72.htm
Apart from the above mentioned parameters, you can also monitor the following

other actions.
To monitor Network Interfaces
Note: Network Interface monitoring is possible only in SNMP and WMI mode of monitoring
In the Server Monitor page, under Network Interfaces, all the network interfaces will be listed. The
various attributes that can be monitored are:
•
Interface Traffic - Input traffic (bits received), Output Traffic (bits transmitted). You can set alarm
thresholds for these attributes.
•
Interface utilization - Input Utilization %, Output Utilization %. You can set alarm thresholds for
these attributes.
•
Packets received - Packets received per second
•
Packets transmitted - Packets transmitted per second
•
Error packets - No. of packets in error per second after receiving the packets
•
Discarded packets - No. of packets discarded per second after receiving the packets
•
Health - the health of the interface based on the attributes
•
Status - whether the interface is up or down (shown only in SNMP mode of monitoring)
Associating Scripts and URLs to the Host Resource:
By associating a script or a URL to a Host resource, their attributes become one among the other
attributes of the Host and their data is also shown under Host Details itself. Health of the Host resource is
dependent on the Health of the Scripts and URLs as well.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
265
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
For eg., If you wish to monitor RequestExecutionTime, RequestsCurrent, RequestsDisconnected of the
ASP.NET application, WMI scripts can be used to get the statistics (this info is not available when
Applications Manager is used). You can write your own script that would fetch these details then
configure this script to the Applications Manager. After configuring this script to the Applications Manager
you can associate this script to the host monitor itself. Then the attributes of the script would behave like
the other attributes of the Host monitor. Hence, you can configure in such a way that the Health of the
script directly affects the Health of the host.
Likewise, If you want to monitor a website hosted in a system in such a way that, whenever there is a
change in the health of the website, the health of the server should reflect the change. In this case you
can configure the URL monitor and then associate that url to the host. Hence, if the website is down, the
health of the Host resource is affected.
•
Associate/Remove Scripts: Click on 'Associate/Remove Scripts' link in Host Details. Scripts that
are associated and that are not associated with the Host would be listed. Accordingly, you can
then select the scripts that you want to associate or remove.
•
Associate/Remove URLs: Click on 'Associate/Remove URLs' link in Host Details. URLs that are
associated and that are not associated with the Host would be listed. Accordingly, you can then
select the URLs that you want to associate or remove.

Web Service Monitoring
Web Services is an XML-based technology that allow applications to communicate with each other,
regardless of the environment, by exchanging messages in a standardized format (XML) via web
interfaces (SOAP and WSDL APIs).
ManageEngine Applications Manager provides a flexible approach to manage a SOA that uses SOAP
Web Services. It helps business managers configure SLAs and track high level availablity of the Web
Service. Application admins can monitor the performance of these Web Services by configuring
Applications Manager to execute 'Operations' published by the Web Service. By specifying the WSDL, a
simple wizard helps you configure operations that need to be invoked and gives the ability to specify
arguments to the operation. In addition to this, there is out-of-the-box support for configuring thresholds
on individual operation execution times and taking corrective actions.
Adding Operations
You can add Operations to the Web Service for monitoring. Operations are abstract descriptions of
actions supported by the service.
Follow the steps given below to add operations:
1. Click the Add Operation link present on the right-hand side of the web services monitor screen.
This displays the Add Operation screen.
2. The operations configured in the web service will be listed in the Select Operation drop-down list
box. You can either choose any of these operations or choose custom operation.
3. If you select a pre-configured operation, the SOAP Action and SOAP Request values for the
operation will be automatically displayed. Replace the '?' in the SOAP request with your input
value.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
345
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
4. If you choose the custom operation, you have to specify the Operation Name, SOAP Action and
SOAP Request values.
5. You can use the Test Operation option to check the output before adding the operation for
monitoring.
6. Click Save button to add the operation. Click Save and Configure Another button to add the
operation and configure another operation.
The Operations thus added, will be listed in the details page under the Operation Statistics section. In
this section, you can view the details of the operation such as Operation Name, SOAP Request, SOAP
Response, status and execution time. Applications Manager provides a link in the Alert Email for SOAP
Action, to view the SOAP response for the specific Operation. You can also configure thresholds and
alarms for all the operations.
Editing Arguments
Click the Manage Operation link under the 'Operation Statistics' section to go to the 'Manage Operation'
page. In this page, click the
icon to edit the Operation Display name as well as the Arguments
including SOAP Action and SOAP Request values.
You can also enable/disable reports for the operations from the Manage Operation page. If you disable
reports, Applications Manager will not update the Operation Execution Time graph for that time period.

Real Browser Monitor
Real Browser Monitor (RBM) provides live End-User experience measurement. RBM opens up a
Microsoft Internet Explorer Browser and monitors a web application just like how a real user sees it. It
supports playback from different geographical locations.
For eg., if you have different users logging in to your application from UK, US, Germany, Australia, etc.
you can monitor their experience from a central Applications Manager Server. You could have the
Applications Manager running in a data center in India and have the Real Browser Monitor agents
deployed in other geographical locations and have it report Web Application Performance data to the
central site. This way you can monitor the availability and performance of the website pages at different
locations.
Working of Real Browser Monitor
•
•
•
Components of RBM - Toolbar for Browser (Internet Explorer), EUM agent to be installed from
where the "Internet Explorer" playback has to be performed and Applications Manager Server.
End User Monitoring(EUM) agents (separate .exe downloads) need to be installed in the client
locations.
System requirement for the machine where EUM agent is to be deployed :
EUM agents have to be installed on a dedicated Windows Machine - 256 MB RAM, 1 GB HD,
with Internet Explorer 6 or above. However, Applications Manager can be installed on Windows
or Linux. This works with the Professional Edition and Enterprise Edition (with Managed Server).
•
EUM agents register to ManageEngine Applications Manager on startup. You need to specify the
"host and Web Client Port" of Applications Manager the first time the agent is installed and
running. The agents get listed automatically.
•
Using the RBM Toolbar you can record the required URL sequences and the actions that a
typical end-user would access. The actions will be recorded as webscripts. The webscripts can
be viewed in the webscript manager.
•
Real Browser monitor is created in Applications Manager server by calling the required
webscripts and agents. The EUM agent will periodically check Applications Manager Server if
RBM monitor has been configured for this agent. If available, the EUM agent will run the
webscript associated, by invoking Internet Explorer. The recorded actions will be replayed in the
browser. [Note: While playback is happening, do not close the Internet Explorer]. Once the
playback is complete, EUM agent will update the results of the playback [response time,
response code, etc] in Applications Manager.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
347
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
•
Only one Internet Explorer used by EUM agent can run in the background / foreground while
playback is in progress. This means only one transaction can be executing at a time. Applications
Manager takes care of ensuring this synchronized playback.
•
The availability and performance of the websites are monitored in real time by using the Real
Browser monitor. If the health of the URLs is critical, then alarms can be generated. Based on the
alarms, the admin will fix the issue.
Monitoring End-User Experience with RBM Monitor
The availability and response time of the recorded URLs will be monitored according to the poll interval
set. Alarms are configured based on threshold configurations. So, if the health of the URLs is critical,
alarms will be generated.
The Availability tab gives the Availability history for the past 24 hours or 30 days. The Performance tab
gives the Health history for the past 24 hours or 30 days and also the Total Response Time of the various
monitors. The List view enables you to perform bulk admin configurations. Click on the individual monitors

•
Total response time of the individual urls in the transaction:
This section provides a good indication of how each individual url present within a transaction
performs from different geographical locations. This section lists all the urls of the transaction and
shows the response time of each url from multiple locations. The location from which the url has
the maximum response time value will be highlighted. Click on any of the response time values
listed to navigate to the 'Monitor Information' page of that particular url.
FAQ:
1. How does Real Browser monitor differ from URL Sequence monitor?
The URL sequence monitor supports only the recording of URL sequences and not the actions performed
in the URLs. Also, RBM supports playback from different geographical locations unlike a URL sequence
monitor.

Alarms
What is an Alarm?
Alarms are notifications generated based on some condition or criteria, helping to detect problems when
any of the servers running in the network is experiencing it. This improves the fault management ensuring
productive application monitoring
There are three severity levels for the Alarms and they are
•
Critical
•
Warning
•
Clear
and
Alarms are generated for the following type of attributes:
1. Availability of a Monitor. When the availability of the Monitor is down, the severity is represented
as
and when it is up, the severity is represented as
.
2. Health of a Monitor.
3. Attributes of a Monitor. Alarms will be generated, if the threshold profile condition set for these
attributes is met.
Note:
•
The availability of a Monitor requires no configurations from your side.
•
Alarms are also generated based on dependencies configured to the attributes. Refer to
Configuring Dependencies section for more details.

Viewing and Configuring Alarms Globally
Configuring Alarms is the final step in monitoring your applications or services.
Once the Monitor is associated with the Monitor Group, alarms can be configured through the Configure
Alarm screen. This provides an overview of all the attributes of the Monitor in a Monitor Group, and the
thresholds and actions associated with the attribute.
How to Demos: Have a look at our demo on configuring Alarms in our website.
The purpose of Global Alarm Configuration is that you can associate thresholds and actions directly
rather than from the individual Monitor screen. Additionally, you can view all the thresholds and actions
associated with the attributes of a Monitor Group / Monitor in a single screen.
You can perform the following functions in the screen:
•
You can create and associate a threshold for an attribute by clicking 'associate' link. It opens the
'configure alarms' page, herein you can create a new threshold or apply an existing threshold for
the attribute.
Note: By selecting 'Apply to selected monitors', the threshold for this attribute is applied to
selected / all monitors of the same type. For eg., say you are associating a threshold for
Response time of a particular Linux server. By selecting 'Apply to selected monitors', the
threshold for response time can be applied to all Linux servers or to a select number of Linux
servers.
For more information, refer to the Associating Threshold and Action with Attributes section.
•
You can edit already existing thresholds by clicking on the threshold name.
Note: You can also view the Global Alarm Configuration screen by clicking 'Configure Alarms' under
admin tab.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.

ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
Creating Threshold Profile
Thresholds let you define the status of an attribute based on specific conditions. For example, you can
define a threshold to show the status of the web server as critical, if the response time exceeds 100
seconds. Likewise, you can define a threshold to show the status as clear, if the MBean's attribute Active is equal to true.
To define a threshold, follow the steps given below:
1. Click New Threshold. This opens the Create New Threshold Profile screen.
2. Create New Threshold Profile for Numeric Values or for String Values
3. Specify the Threshold Name.
4. Specify the conditions for the different severity of the alarms. You can also specify a message
that has to be appended to the alarm. By default, you can configure Critical severity, By clicking
on advanced, you can configure Warning and Clear severity.
5. Specify the number of polls that can be scheduled before reporting an error. By default, it takes
the value from Global Settings. Refer Configuring Consecutive Polls for setting configurations for
individual monitors.
6. Click Create Threshold Profile to add the threshold after defining all the conditions.
7. Choose the View Threshold option available in the top menu to view the threshold. The
Threshold Profile screen lists all the default thresholds and newly created thresholds. Note: You
can also edit the threshold created using the edit
icon.
The thresholds thus defined can be associated with the attributes for determining the status of the
attributes of the Monitor Group. You can also associate thresholds and actions directly through Global
Alarm Configuration instead of the individual Monitor screen.
Refer to Associating Threshold and Action with Attributes for more details.

Execute MBean Operation
Actions of type Execute MBean Operation can be created to invoke operations on MBeans of JMX
Compliant Resources. The JMX compliant resources that are supported by Applications Manager are :
WebLogic, WebSphere, JBoss, AdventNet RMI Adapter and JMX agents (JDK1.5 / MX4J). Creating a
MBean Operation would be helpful if you want to monitor the value of any custom attribute and do any
action based on its value.
For Eg, When you want to shut down your JBoss server when the number of threads running in it goes
above a specified value, you can add the necessary code to shutdown the server on the JBoss Montor
side as a MBean operation and invoke this as a MBean Operation action from the Applications Manager.
To configure an Execute MBean , follow these steps:
1. Select the New Action link from the top menu.
2. Click Execute MBean under the Actions menu in the left frame. This opens the Create New
MBean Operation Action screen.
3. By following a simple set of 4 steps you can create a MBean Operation. First Step : If you have a
JMX compliant monitor already configured, it will be listed in the Combo box. Provide a name for
the action and select any one of the resources for which you create a MBean Operation. If you
donot have any monitor configured, use the link given the page to discover a new monitor. Click
on the Show Domains Button to go to the next step.
4. Secondly, The list of domains present in the agent you have selected are displayed. Select any of
the Domains and click on the button Show MBeans.
5. In the third Step, Select any one of the MBeans for which you want to create the action and click
Show Operations.
6. All the MBean Operations are listed in this screen with varying return types and arguments. Click
Create Action button for the operation for which you want to create this action. A success
message that you have created this action would be displayed and the newly created action will
be listed under the head Execute MBean Operations Action(s)
Note: You can give multiple values to the operation arguments as comma separated values. For an
operation with multiple arguments, the combinations of the values supplied, can also be executed.
This is done in order to ensure that we need not create separate actions to represent different
combinations of argument values.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
379
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
For Example, if you want to create actions for the logging level of a product, the operation change
logginLevel may take two arguments as, "User" and "Level". You can supply, admin and operator as
values for User and debug and info for Level respectively. You can execute the operation manually by
choosing any of the combinations using the "Manual Execution" option. By default the first values
given will be taken to execute the action, as Admin and debug in the above example.
Passing multiple values can be further enhanced by using Replaceable Tags.
After creating an MBean Operation action, you can test the execution of that action in two ways:
•
You can have a trial execution of the action. To do so, click the Execute icon
•
You can also manually execute the action, click on
of that action.
. This opens a popup with the operation
details. Select the options from the list and click Execute Action button. The action would be
called with the given values and return value will be given in the UI.
Note: There is a link Fetch data now in the corresponding monitor details page, which will fetch the
data from the server, after you have executed the action. This will help you to see the value of the
custom attribute without waiting for the next polling interval.

Replaceable Tags
Alarm Configuration can be further enhanced by 'Replaceable Tags'. An email action is configured, if, for
e.g., Tomcat Server goes down. While creating the E-Mail action, you can specify the "Message" as "This
resource is running $HOSTNAME at port $PORT". If the Tomcat Server goes down, then email action is
triggered with a message that contains the actual name of the Host and Port Number. Hereby the Dollar
Tags are replaced with the host in which the tomcat server is running and the exact port of the tomcat
server.
Further, if you want Applications Manager to pass arguments to Custom Scripts, which would be invoked
as part of 'Execute Program Action', you can make use of Replaceable Tags.
For e.g., in 'Execute Program Action' , you can give the value for 'Program To Execute' to be
<run.bat $HOSTIP $MONITORNAME $PORT>
If the action is invoked then the $tags would be replaced with the then actual values say
<run.bat 191.167.111.27 MyServer 9090>

Alarm Escalation
Using this option, you can escalate if any alarm has not been attended to for a given time period. You can
configure rules to send Escalation EMails about unattended alarms to the Admin or to the superior.
Alarm Escalation Configuration:
•
Under the Admin Tab, Click on Alarm Escalation icon.
•
Set the rule. For eg., Send Escalation EMail if the critical alarms of all monitors are not cleared
within 2 hours. You can set rules for alarms in individual monitor groups too.
•
Give the EMail ID to which Escalation EMail should be sent.
•
Set the time period for which the rule should be executed repeatedly.
•
By choosing not to receive duplicate escalation EMails for the same alarm, you opt for optimizing
the number of escalation EMails sent. For eg., If there are five critical alarms that were escalated
in the first execution run (say 10 minutes), only if there is an addition of new alarm or deletion of
alarm, the next set of alarms will be escalated in the second run. If there is no change in the
environment in the next 10 minutes, ie., if the five critical alarms still remain the same, escalation
EMail will not be sent.

Bulk Alarm Configuration
After configuring alarm for a particular monitor, if the same configuration holds good for all other monitors
of the same type, then by using Alarm Template functionality you can do Bulk Alarm Configuration.
Currently, Threshold and Action configurations are supported. It is very useful in cases where you want to
configure identical Thresholds/Actions for a huge number of similar monitors.
For e.g., If there are ten Tomcat servers and you want to configure an email action, if the response time
for Tomcat exceeds 100 seconds. The alarm (Threshold and Action) is configured for one Tomcat server
and by using Alarm Template this configuration can be applied to all the other Tomcat servers.
Usage of Alarm Template is illustrated below:
1. Click on the Alarm Template link under 'Snapshot' of the particular monitor.
2. A popup opens up with two choices: Overwrite existing Threshold Configuration and
Overwrite existing Action Configuration
3. If you choose to overwrite the existing Threshold Configuration, then Thresholds already
associated would be overwritten with the new configuration, otherwise the old setting is retained.
4. If you choose to Overwrite existing Action Configuration, then actions already associated, are
removed and the new configuration added. Otherwise new configuration is appended to the
existing configuration.
5. Under the Advanced option, you can choose the monitors to which alarm template can be
applied.
6. On clicking on Apply, the alarm configuration is applied across all monitors of the same Monitor
Type.

Configuring Dependencies and Alarm Rules
Dependencies: You have the option to associate multiple dependent devices across managed servers.
Dependencies determine the health/availability of a Monitor. This includes dependent parameters of the
Monitor based on which the severity of the health and availability are determined.
Alarm Rules: They determine the health/availability of a Monitors Groups.
Dependent Devices: You can configure a dependent device in such a manner that if the availability of
the dependent device is down, all the Monitors/Monitor Group's availability under the dependent device
will be down. You can configure the dependent device for a Monitor Group or individual monitor to
suppress false downtime alarms caused by the dependent device being down.
Configuring Dependencies for Monitors:
By configuring dependencies, you can specify whether the health or availability depends on all or few
dependencies. The severity is also determined by order of severity which is given below:
1. Critical
2. Warning
3. Clear
For example, If there are 9 dependencies in a Monitor Group where three are critical, three are warning,
and three are clear and the severity of Health of Monitor Group is based on any three selected
dependencies, then the severity will be Critical as per the order of severity.
To configure dependencies for the Monitor, do the following steps:
1. Select the Home tab that lists all the Monitor Groups.
2. Click on the Monitor Group that lists the Monitor.
3. Click on the Configure Alarm icon
of the respective Monitor. This opens the Configure Alarm
screen.
4. Choose Health or Availability from the combo box. The dependent attributes will be shown in

selected parameters.
Depends on any "n" selected parameters: The severity of health depends on only 'n' selected
parameters. The number of parameter, n has to be selected from the combo box.
7. Click Save All to complete configuring dependencies.
Configuring Alarm Rules for Monitor Groups:
By configuring Alarm Rules, you can specify how the health or availability depends on the constituent
Monitors in that Monitor Group. For eg., using Alarm Rules, you can say Health of the Monitor Group is
Critical if the health of any two monitors in the monitor group is critical or Availability of the Monitor Group
is Critical if health of any one of the monitors is critical.
To configure alarm rules for the Monitor Group, do the following steps:
1. Select the Home tab that lists all the Monitor Groups.
2. Click on the Monitor Group you want to configure alarm rules.
3. Click on the Configure Alarm icon
of the Monitor Group [under Today's Availability]. This

5. For Availability Alarm Rule, set the rule as Monitor Group is down if any/all/selected Monitor's availability is down
or
Monitor Group is down if Monitor's health is critical/warning
6. For Health Alarm Rule, set the rule as Monitor Group is Critical if any/all/selected Monitor's availability is down or if Monitor's health is
critical/warning
Monitor Group is Warning if any/all/selected Monitor's availability is down or if Monitor's health is
critical/warning
7. You have the option of setting any number of rules. For eg., it can be Monitor Group's Availability
is down if any one of the monitor's availability is down or if the health of any one of the monitor is
critical. Likewise, you can have your customized set of Alarm Rules.

Configuring Consecutive Polls
If you do not want Applications Manager to generate alarm for the first time the threshold condition is
crossed, then you can use this option to specify the number of consecutive polls before generating an
alarm. For e.g., If you want an email alarm to be generated only if the CPU Disk utilization is above 100%,
consecutively for more than two polls, then you can configure the number of consecutive polls before
reporting an error as two. In Action / Alarm Settings , you can have a common setting for all the monitors.
If you want to overwrite the common settings, you can also configure the polls before reporting an error
on availability and threshold of individual monitors.
To Configure Polls on Availability for Individual monitors
1. Click on Configure Alarm lcon, in the 'Today's availability' graph of the selected monitor.
2. You can configure the number of times consecutive polling should take place before reporting
that the monitor is up or down.
3. You can also click on the Configure Alarm Link in the Snapshot view of the monitor, and by
clicking on the Configure Alarm icon, for availability attribute, you can configure the consecutive
polls.
4. You can enter the number of times consecutive polling needs be done before reporting that the
availability is up or down. You can leave the 'Polls before reporting an error' field empty to have
the action / alarm settings for consecutive polls take effect.
To Configure Polls on Threshold for Individual monitors
1. Click New Threshold Profile. This opens the Create new Threshold Profile screen.
2. Create New Threshold Profile, as per details found in Creating Threshold Profile.
3. Note: Specify the number of polls that can be scheduled before reporting an error. By default, it
takes the value from action / alarm settings. For e.g., if you have created a threshold for web
server to be critical if the response time crosses 100 seconds. And you wish to receive an email
alarm only if the web server becomes critical after two polls and not at the first poll itself. Then
configure the number of polls before reporting an error as two. You can leave the 'Polls before
reporting an error' field empty to have the action / alarm settings for consecutive polls to take
effect.

Heat Report
A sample Heat Report is shown below. This report is largely useful to compare the similar types of
monitors and to check their performance of each monitor with other monitors. These heat charts are
plotted based on how the attribute of the particular monitor type performs according to the threshold
configured for that particular monitor. If a threshold is configured for the attribute of a particular monitor,
then the threshold is taken and heat chart is plotted. There are three colors by which heat chart is plotted.
Red color indicates critical breach in threshold, Orange color indicates warning, and Green color is clear.
If the threshold is breached, then the color of the heat chart changes accordingly. This implies drop in
performance, thus providing clear understanding of various monitors performance of the same type. If the
threshold value for each attribute for that particular monitor is not set, then the common threshold value is
automatically assumed and this heat chart is generated.
The 'Edit' option provided in this chart will facilitate the user to view the heat chart in any other threshold
definition on the fly. Please note that by editing threshold the view won't affect the original threshold
configured for the attribute.

Capacity Planning Reports
Capacity planning helps IT enterprises balance hardware costs with computing needs. The major
objectives of effective capacity management are:
•
Making efficient use of existing capacity.
•
Minimizing wastage of computing resources.
To view capacity planning reports generated by Applications Manager:
•
Click the Reports module tab to open the index page that lists all the reports generated by
Applications Manager.
•
Click on the Capacity Planning link in the list of reports at the left side of the page.
These reports render resources like CPU and Memory utilization for both Physical and Virtual Servers.
Before proceeding, make sure that you have enabled reports for all the monitors.
You can get reports over various customized time periods. The capacity planning reports can be exported
in .pdf, excel, CSV and e-mail formats. The reports are classified into three types:
•
Undersized Servers/Machines
•
Oversized Servers/Machines
•
Idle Servers/Machines
Undersized Monitors/Machines
These are servers that consistently use nearly all of their configured capacity. For a given amount of time,
if the average CPU or Memory utilization of a server are very high, the resources allotted to the server is
undersized. The server need to be right-sized so that workloads running within the virtual machine can
get sufficient resource capacity.
Oversized Monitors/Machines
These are servers that consistently use less resources than their configured capacity. For a given amount
of time, if the average CPU or Memory utilization of a server are very low, the resources allotted to the
server is oversized. The server needs to be right-sized down to a lower capacity that is sufficient for the
workloads running within the virtual machine.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
405
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
Idle Monitors/Machines
With Applications Manager capacity planning reports you can also view individual resource utilization
details of a particular monitor for a specific time interval configured by the user. These are monitors that
show an insignificant level of capacity usage on one or more resources most of the time. For example,
say the average CPU utilization is very low over most hours of day. This analysis is to identify servers that
are not being used, for example, users are no longer running workloads.
Rightsizing Virtual Machines
Applications Manager analyzes oversized and undersized machines using CPU and memory utilization
metrics. A utilization threshold is configured for a specific metric like CPU or Memory. If a machine uses
resources capacity less than this threshold, the machine is oversized. The degree to which a virtual
machine is oversized is calculated along with the the amount of time a machine spends in an overutilized
state.
Similarly, if a machine uses resources capacity more than this threshold, the machine is undersized. The
degree to which a virtual machine is undersized is calculated along with the the amount of time a machine
spends in an underutilized state.
You can view the reports for selected servers from the Select Server drop-down list. You can also select
a particular Monitor group from the Select Monitor Group drop-down.
Click on the server type to generate reports for the specified time period and threshold limit. You can set
the conditions to be satisfied for a server to be undersized, oversized or idle.
Click on one of the server types (undersized, oversized or idle servers). A new window is opened to
display a capacity planning report with server details like:
•
Monitor Name - Name of the Monitor
•
Undersized/ oversized/ idle - The state of the server.
•
CPU Utilization - Percentage of CPU Utilized
•
Memory Utilization - Percentage of Memory Utilized
•
User Notes - The user can add and save notes which will appear in the report.
The attribute column is RED or GREEN and the undersized column has values YES or NO respectively,
depending upon the condition specified.

Discovery
Network Discovery
Services
Network Discovery is the process of discovering all Monitors in a specified network. It discovers
Monitors running in the default port only.
To discover all the Monitors in a network:
1. Click the Admin module tab.
2. Click Discover a Network under Discovery from the Admin Activities. This opens the Configure
Network Discovery screen.
3. Enter the Network IP Address.
4. Enter the SubNetMask of the network.
5. Click Start Discovery to start discovering Monitors within the mentioned network.
Note: To view the Monitors discovered in the network, click the Configured Networks link available in
the left frame under Discovery Links or in the Admin module tab, under Network Discovery, click
View.
Some FAQs regarding Network Discovery
1.How does "Network Discovery" function work? How to discover the network? Eg.Through what mode?
Initially Applications Manager get all the Ip addresses in the given domain and then Applications Manager
discovers them by using ping test. If the ping test succeeds and if SNMP agent is running on that
machine, Applications Manager will try to add it to the appropriate category ( i.e., windows / linux / solaris
) and collect data, otherwise Applications Manager will add that server to unknown category.
2. If I add a new "Network Discovery", does it only discover once or discover at regular intervals?
Because there are only "Add New" and "Disable Network Discovery" buttons, I don't know when it will
start to discover and when it will finsh discovery.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
426
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
When you add Network Discovery, it will rediscover the network every time you restart Applications
Manager and also it will do rediscovery once in every 24 hours. Once you start network discovery, it will
start discovering the servers in the network. It will wait for 20 seconds interval between discovering
servers.
3. I find "Network Discovery" can find a small part of the monitors in the network only, there are lots of
monitors that can't be found.
In the professional trial version of Applications Manager, only 50 servers are discovered using Network
Discovery.
4. I don't want to monitor a certain monitor, I delete it manually; but I don't disable network discovery, will
it be discovered and monitored again?
Yes, it will discover that monitor again in the next rediscovery which takes place after 24 hours.
Services
Using this option, you can choose which of the services needs to monitored by default. The services are
listed down along with their default ports. For eg., if you had already added a Windows Server monitor, by
using this option, you can choose the services (that are running in that windows server) to be monitored.
You choose to monitor all the tomcats & IIS servers that are running in the windows server. Data
Collection does not happen for services that are not enabled, thereby increasing the efficiency of
monitoring in general.
By using the edit option, you can edit the port number. If there are multiple ports, enter the ports as
comma separated.

Custom Monitor Type
By using this option, you can define your own monitor types apart from the monitor types that are
available by default.
This feature allows to associate a monitor type to the inhouse scripts that might be used for monitoring
your own applications. For eg., if you are using various scripts to monitor Siebel CRM, you can now
associate these scripts and model Siebel as one of the monitor types. Thereby having robust out of the
box support for monitoring Forum Software, build Business Intelligence Dashboards, monitor Custom
Application Log Files on multiple servers etc.
Custom Monitor Demo: Have a look at the demo that helps you to add a new Custom Monitor Type
WorkFlow
Step1) The custom monitor type helps you create and define metrics / attributes that will be tracked.
Step 2) Then specify a script (Linux Shell Script / Windows Batch File) that needs to be executed to get
the data and provide it to Applications Manager in the appropriate format.
In these scripts users can use any mechanism to get the data. For example users can :
•
Invoke a Java Program, PHP, Python Scripts etc and make database calls to pull data and feed it
to Applications Manager
•
Can make native calls to other programs and pipe the data to the output file
•
Parse Log Files and give a summary of metrics as the input to Applications Manager
Creating New Monitor Types:
You can create new monitor type by clicking on the 'New Monitor Type' link inside the New Monitor link or
by clicking on the Custom Monitor Types icon under Admin tab.
•
Enter the Monitor Type name
•
Select Base type - Currently, scripts are the base to build new monitor type.
•
Select the Monitor Type Category - For eg., If you are monitoring postgresql using in-house
scripts, you can add postgresql monitor type and you can place it under Database category
Define the attributes you want to monitor
•
Enter the String Attributes that you want to monitor - Enter the attributes line by line.
•
Enter the Numeric Attributes that you want to monitor - Enter the attributes line by line.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
428
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
•
You can monitor the output in a table format, enter the Table Name, Numeric attributes, Sting
attributes, Unique column and Column delimiter. More help
•
Click on Create Monitor Type to finish the configuration of new monitor type.
Now, you have defined a custom Monitor type. The next step would be to create instances & associate
them to the new monitor type defined.
[Script Monitor Overview: Based on the polling interval, Applications Manager executes the script to be
monitored. The script will transfer its output to another specific Output File configured. The output of the
script should be in a Key=Value format where '=' can be any delimiter. Applications Manager parses the
Output File and executes the actions configured]
Adding Custom Monitors:
•
In the User Created Monitor Type screen, the newly created monitor types are listed down. Click
on the Add New icon to add the monitors
•
Add New monitor screen opens up, Select the custom monitor type from Monitor Types drop
down box. [ For eg., Siebel]
o
Enter the Display Name.
o
Choose the location of script that you want to monitor - Local or Remote.
o
Specify the absolute path of the script.
o
Specify the absolute path of the execution directory.
o
Specify the absolute path of the Output File
o
Enter the arguments that needs to be passed.
o
Enter the polling interval and timeout.
o
Click Add Monitor(s)
You have already given the attributes to be monitored as common to all monitors under custom
Monitor Type. So there is no need to give input attributes to be monitored again
•
Upon adding the custom monitors, you can see the performance attributes in the monitor details
page.
Usage Scenario 1: Creating New Siebel Monitor Type
One customer had 6 Siebel applications running in 6 different machines. As, out of the box support for
Siebel Application is not available, he uses the Script Monitoring feature of ManageEngine Applications
Manager to monitor his applications. He has identical scripts running in the 6 machines and they produce
the same output in the output file in the respective machines. Now he configures them as six Script
Monitors. This gives him an opportunity to monitor his Siebel applications. Using Script Monitor facility, he
monitors the following attributes
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
429
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
•
transaction Router
•
server request processor
•
transaction processor
There are few disadvantages in his usage.
1. He has to give the same Output details while specifying the same six applications.
2. If he has to edit / add / delete the attributes , then he has to do so in all the 6 Script Monitors.
3. Further he would like to see them as 6 Siebel Monitors rather than 6 Script Monitors.
Here comes the usage of New Monitor Type, that would avoid all the above inconveniences.
1. Output Settings can be specified only once. You could specify the Scalar String / Numeric attributes
and tabular settings only once while defining the type, say Siebel.
2. You could create any number of monitor instances for that particular type , just like any other in-built
type say SAP / Weblogic / Oracle monitors in Applications Manager. While doing so, you just need to
specify the Hostname and the corresponding Scripts
3. Adding / Deleting / Modifying attributes of some particular monitor type commonly will affect all the
monitors of that monitor type.
4. Now you will be seeing 6 Siebel monitors rather than 6 Script Monitors.
5. Reports can be enabled for this type like any other type.
The same concept can be applied to any other application say for monitoring People Soft applications.
Usage Scenario 2: Business Intelligence Dashboard
Users can build custom Business Intelligence dashboards and have it reported and alerted on. Some
possible metrics could be
•
Call Volume in the last one Month
•
Time taken to finish a call
•
Number of simultaneous Calls
Usage Scenario 3: Custom Application Log Files
Some metrics that you can add with a little bit of coding are :
•
Number of security breaches
•
Number of Errors During Login etc.
Managing Custom Monitor Types:
You can edit the configuration of the Monitor types by clicking on the Custom Monitor Type link under
Admin Tab. It opens up to list all the User created Monitor Types. From here you add new monitors to the
custom monitor types, edit the configuration and more importantly enable or disable reports of these
custom monitor types.

Performance Polling
Data Collection
Using this option, Performance Data collection can be scheduled for the given number of polls. Except for
Availability check and health, other performance parameters like memory usage data can be collected at
the scheduled number of polls. This would be helpful in decreasing the load on the system of the users
who want to monitor availability and health alone.
For eg., If the polling interval of a particular server monitor is one minute and the performance data is
scheduled to be collected once in five pollings. In this case, the availability of the server is checked every
minute whereas the performance data like CPU Memory is collected every five minutes.
Servers
Using this option, Disk IO Stats can be Enabled or Disabled for the servers. On enabling the option, Data
Collection will happen for Disk IO stats and you can see the details of Disk IO Stats in the Server details

1. Applications Manager will check if the process is running and whether the command and arguments
are same as that was being added initially. If the arguments change often then you can retain the
command and remove the argument. You can also update the command & argument field with certain
path which will not change throughout the lifecycle of the process.

Availability Settings
This section explains the availability settings that can be made in Applications Manager. To access
availability Settings, click the Admin tab and click Availability Settings.
Show Monitor Status as Up during Maintenance
Using Downtime Scheduler, you have the option to schedule a time period for which monitoring is not
needed. If you want to show the availabilty of monitors under maintenance as Up, irrespective of their
previous state, select this option.
Clear Health Alert during Maintenance Period
When you schedule a downtime or unmanage a monitor, it will show the last health status. If the monitor
is down before a downtime or maintenance, it will be displayed as 'Down'.
If you choose this option, then Applications Manager will clear the last health status of the monitor.
Check for Network Availability
When Applications Manager is out of the network or is not connected to the network, the status of all the
Monitors that are currently been monitored will be shown as 'Down'. You can avoid this by enabling the
'Check for Network Availability' option.
When this option is enabled, Applications Manager will generate alarms for the unavailability of resources
only if the specified host is reachable in the network. For example, let us assume that the system/host
which runs the Applications Manager has been isolated from the network. Enable this option and specify
a hostname in the network (preferably not the hostname where Applications Manager runs). Now,
Applications Manager tries to ping that machine for its availability in the network. If not available, alarms
are not generated and resources are not shown as down.
You can also specify the IP of your routers, gateways, etc., to check the system/host which runs the
Applications Manager is present in the network.

ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
Check for URL Availability
When the Applications Manager is out of the network or if external proxy settings are not configured, the
status of all the URLs that are currently been monitored will be shown as 'Down'. You can avoid this (and
false alarms) by enabling the 'Check URL Availability' option.
When this option is enabled, Applications Manager will generate alarms for the unavailability of URL only
if the other specified URL - reference URL is not down. For eg, let us assume that the system/host which
runs the Applications Manager has been isolated from the network. Enable this option and specify
another URL say for eg., google.com which is expected to be up always. Now, Applications Manager tries
to monitor URL for its availability. If not available, it checks reference URL, if the reference URL is
available the alarms are generated. If the reference URL itself is not available (meaning the machine is
out of network or any such case) false alarms are not generated and URL is not shown as down. Further
a mail is sent to the configured mail address intimating the same.
Availability Timeout Check
Using this option, you can set timeout for checking availability globally.

Action / Alarm Settings
This section explains the Action / Alarm Settings that can be made in Applications Manager. To access
Action / Alarm Settings, click the Admin tab and click Action / Alarm Settings.
General:
Enable Actions
When alarms are generated, actions are triggered for those alarms (if you have configured any). If you do
not want the actions to be executed in spite of the alarms, deselect this option.
Execute Actions Repeatedly
If you want the actions to be trigged continuously during every poll, till alarms change from
Critical/Warning to Clear, you can use this functionality. The three types of recursive actions that are
involved are
•
If a Monitor is down, you can execute actions repeatedly till the Monitor is up.
•
If Health is critical/warning, you can execute actions repeatedly till the Health is clear.
•
If the attribute status is critical/warning, you can execute actions repeatedly till the attribute status
is clear.
EMail
By selecting this option, you can add the server snapshot - Dial view as an inline attachment in the alarm
EMail. This option is available only if the Health becomes critical.
Monitor Error Mail
By selecting this option, you can send emails in case of any fatal monitor error like data collection not
happening, etc. This mail will be sent to the email address specified in the 'admin' user account. If no
email address is specified, the mail will be sent to the email address specified in the 'Mail Server' settings,
hence ensure that you specify a valid email address.
Furthermore, you can specify the number of times the error has to occur before email is triggered in the
Check for consecutive polls before sending error box.
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
441
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
Date Format
Using this option, you can set the required date format in the Email alarms. It can either be
Day Mon dd HH:mm:ss IST yyyy (Default) - Thu Feb 22 12:02:40 IST 2007
or
MM/dd//yyyy HH:mm:ss - 02/22//2007 12:02:40. See Replaceable tags for usage of $Date.
SMS:
By default , the complete information that you configure while adding SMS Action is sent through the
SMS. Some SMS service providers restrict the length of characters sent through the SMS. This could
result in truncated message delivery. If you would want to send only information on the Monitor, Attribute,
and its Severity, deselect this option. For E.g., "Health of JBoss Server is critical" will be the SMS format
that is received.
This is in addition to the message provided when creating the SMS action.
Consecutive Polls before Reporting an Error:
The Critical, Warning, and Clear alarms are generated based on attributes that you have configured. You
have control over the alarms that are being generated. Simply specify the number times after which the
alarm should actually be generated. It would eradicate false alarms.
If you want to poll '3' times before reporting that a system (or any Monitor) is down or an attribute is
critical, specify the value as '3' in the first text box. Similarly, you can change the remaining two text boxes
(warning, Clear) also. If you have set the poll as '2' times before reporting a service is up, for the first time
of polling, the service will be shown as Unknown. Only on the second poll, if the service is running, the
status would be shown as 'Up'. Changes made will be reflected across all the monitors.
Apart from Action / Alarm settings, Polls before reporting an error, can be configured for threshold and
availability of individual monitors. Refer Configuring Consecutive Polls.

Configure Proxy
In situations where any URL to be monitored is available in the Internet, then the requests have to be
routed through a HTTP proxy server. Such URL monitoring can be performed by setting the proxy
configuration. For eg., to access websites from your browser, you should configure an HTTP Proxy (In
Internet Explorer, Click on Tools >Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings). Follow the steps given
below to configure a proxy server:
1. Open Web Client, click on Admin tab, then click Configure Proxy.
2. Select Automatically detect settings, if the proxy is to be detected automatically.
3. To specify the proxy settings manually, select Use a proxy server and specify the following
details:
1. Host and port number of the proxy server.
2. User Name and password of the user to access the Internet.
3. Specifies whether you want to use the proxy server for all local (intranet) addresses.
Because a proxy server acts as a security barrier between your internal network (intranet)
and the Internet, you could need extra permissions from your system administrator to
gain access to Web pages through a proxy server. You might be able to gain access to
local addresses easier and faster if you do not use the proxy server.
4. Specify Internet addresses you want to connect to without using a proxy server. For
example, you might not want to use the proxy server to contact other computers on your
local network. Use semicolon (;) to specify multiple IPs.
The entries may be any of the following:
a complete host name (e.g. "www.zohocorp.com")
a domain name; domain names must begin with a dot (e.g. ".zohocorp.com")
an IP-address (e.g. "12.34.56.78")
an IP-subnet, specified as an IP-address and a netmask separated by a "/" (e.g.
"34.56.78/255.255.255.192"); a 0 bit in the netmask means that that bit won't be used in
the comparison (i.e. the addresses are AND'ed with the netmask before comparison).
4. Click Save.
All request to the Internet will then be routed through the proxy server.

AD Authentication and Capability to import users from Active Directory
Setting up of user accounts, passwords, and assigning privileges to different roles manually, while
assuring security is a time-consuming task. We require a more convenient method to add a large number
of users to Applications Manager.
Active Directory Authentication Module is implemented in order to ease the user administration in
Applications Manager. Using Active Directory(AD) authentication module you can import users from
Active Directory to Applications Manager. Active Directory authentication enables users to log in to
Applications Manager if they have an account in an Active Directory domain.
Users imported from the Active Directory can login into Applications Manager using their Active Directory
credentials. This removes the users' burden of remembering yet another username & password for
Applications Manager alone.
Since Active Directory authentication is done in the Domain Controller all the account policy regulations of
the company/domain is automatically inherited to Applications Manager credentials also.
How to Import Users from Active Directory
To import users from Active Directory, use the following steps:

JSON Feed
JSON feeds are used as an alternative for using XML for asynchronously transmitting structured
information between client and server. It is a lightweight text-based open standard designed for humanreadable data interchange.
Applications Manager provides the status of monitors and monitor groups in the form of JSON feeds.
Using these feeds, you can integrate Applications Manager's data into your intranet web portal.
To view the status of monitors/monitor groups, access this URL:
<http://<Applications Manager Hostname>:<port>/jsonfeed.do?method=createMonitorGroupFeed>
We bundle a sample file (jsonsample.html) under <AppManager_Home>/working/html directory to parse
the JSON data.
The following changes should be done in the jsonsample.html file:
•
Change the hostname and port in the URL in first line in the sample file to suit your environment.
<script
src="http://<appmanagerhostname>:<port>/jsonfeed.do?method=createMonitorGroupFeed">
Example: <script
src="http://<appmanager>:<9090>/jsonfeed.do?method=createMonitorGroupFeed">
•
If you want to view the monitor group status coming through JSON feed, you can invoke the URL
below:

Dashboards
Applications Manager monitors over 50 applications and servers out-of-the-box and tracks a variety of
performance indicators for each application or server monitored. In a typical IT environment however,
there are certain servers and metrics that are more business critical than others. Therefore, you might
want to provide more importance to those servers and their metrics. Dashboards are an easy way to put
together such business-critical applications and view their performance and alerts at one place.
Applications Manager provides 4 dashboards by default - default dashboard, business view, Availability
and Qos Worldwide. In addition, you can create custom dashboards such as ones that capture the status
of all web applications deployed in a Tomcat server or status view of all databases and so on.
For more information on dashboards, refer this section.

Production Environment
This document covers configuration details that you need to take care of when moving Applications
Manager into Production:
User Accounts (OS User / Applications Manager Web Client User)
Note: OS User will be referred to as OS User. A user login account to the Applications Manager Web
Client will be referred to as Web Client User. Refer User Administration document for more information on
users.
•
Make sure you change the password for the default "admin" Web Client User within Applications
Manager.
•
Have a dedicated OS User (System) account for installing Applications Manager. This OS user
account needs full permissions on all folders and sub-folders in the installation root of
Applications Manager only. Also make sure this OS User account is fully secure.
It is NOT necessary to install Applications Manager in a root (in Linux) or administrator (windows)
OS User account. But make sure the whole installation is done using the same OS user account.
Do not install using root and try to run using an OS user account. That will fail.
•
If you want to give full "Read-Only" priviledges to certain Web Client Users in your organisation,
then make sure you create a client login with "USER" role.
•
If you want to give restricted "Read-Only" privileges to certain Web Client Users in your
organisation, then make sure you create a client login with "Operator" role. "Operator" can view
only servers that they own.
Other General Guidelines
•
Refer the Security/Firewall Requirements document to understand what changes are required in
the firewall.
•
You can install Applications Manager as a Windows Service or configure a cron job on Linux to
start on server start up.
•
If you are planning to use the Enterprise Edition, fully understand the EE architecture.
•
By default, uploading binaries, MIBs, scripts are allowed in Applications Manager. This may be
required in the intial stages while using Applications Manager for uploading MIBs, action scripts
etc. However while going in to production, it is strongly recommended to disable this
•
Are you getting false alarms for server availabilty? This could be because, your production
servers are taking too long to respond. You can set higher timeouts.
•
To change the default HTTP port used by Applications Manager, refer the Server Settings
document . You can refer to this document on other settings that you can modify. For eg.,
Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
479
ManageEngine Applications Manager : Help Documentation
whenever Applications Manager starts, if you do not want the browser to open automatically, you
need to modify the entry <am.browser.startup=false>
•
Backup the Applications Manager configuration and data.
From a security point of view, the following are done :
•
All passwords are encrypted
•
The encryption keys are uniquely generated for each customer environment.

Applications Manager REST APIs
ManageEngine Applications Manager provides REST APIs for fetching data from Applications Manager.
Using these APIs, Applications Manager's data can be integrated with any internal portal or 3rd party
System Management software. The data can be represented in a single dashboard itself.
By using any XML parser in a scripting language, Java, C, Perl or Python, etc. you can make HTTPs
requests in the format recommended in the API. This data can then be inserted into your own database or
put in any format that you need.
Prerequisites
Applications Manager User Account
Each Applications Manager User should have a valid UserName to use the API.
Take an intranet portal for example. When each user logs in, the assigned monitors and alarms will be
shown. So, it is imperative that each user should have separate API keys. When GetAlarms API is
invoked with the key generated for that particular operator, it will list the alarms that are assigned to that
person alone.
How do APIs work?
In order to use the API, each user should obtain an API key - which is a long text and is unique to their
Applications Manager Account. The API key has to be passed as parameter in every API request made.
Generate API Key
The User can register for the API key from within Applications Manager product using the "REST API"
option in the Admin tab.
Note: Generating the API key is a one-time process.
Steps for using REST API
•
•
Click on the Admin tab
Under Applications Manager Server Settings, click on REST API.
•
•
The API key is generated - eg.7b5fde68148fa2419bc2f1a1ab87e757
Open the browser, the URL would be
http://<myappmanagerZoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd.

•
By changing <type> to the required monitor, data pertaining to that monitor can be retrieved.
Check if the following URL works fine
http://<myappmanagerserver>:9090/AppManager/xml/ListServer?apikey=7b5fde68148fa2419bc2f1a1ab87e757&type=server
will give data of all the server monitors. 'all' will give the entire Applications Manager's data.
•
By using any xml parser in a scripting language, Java, C, Perl or Python etc, you can make
HTTPs requests in the format recommended in the API. This data can then be inserted into your
own database or put in any format that you need.
