5 1 Introduction The ServerView Inventory Manager (simply called Inventory Manager below) is a component of the Asset Management of the PRIMERGY ServerView Suite and is available via ServerView Operations Manager. The Inventory Manager offers handy and flexible access to managing customized collections of several types of data and their storage in the Server- View database. You can create reports based on this data and display them on screen or export them regularly in several output formats. The following types of system data can be collected and used in reports: Inventory data Overview of all hardware, firmware and software components of a system. This includes some general server information, such as the host name, IP address, UUID, serial number etc. as well as version information which can be used in Update Management. System history values which are collected in the database for a period of time: o o o o Power consumption data Overall status information of a system Ambient temperature data Performance data (CPU, memory, network, storage) You can only create reports if data has previously been collected and stored in the database. The Web-based interface of the Inventory Manager helps you specify data collections according to your needs. If you want to use the Update Management, it is essential that inventory data is collected on a regular basis to ensure that up to date version information is available. If you want to analyze the state of your systems over a period of time, system history data should be collected at short intervals. ServerView Inventory Manager 5

6 1 Introduction As the collection of data takes some time and uses up system resources, such tasks need to be scheduled carefully. To find an appropriate scheduling time, you need to consider the number of managed nodes and other tasks which are also running on the Central Management Station (CMS) at the time of collection. If data has been collected and stored in the database, reports can be created on the basis of this data. The Web-based interface of the Inventory Manager helps you define reports according to your needs. Several types of data can be combined in one report. Reports can be created immediately and shown on screen, or they can be created on a regular basis and stored in a file or in a different database. Reports can be generated in CSV (Comma Separated Value) format. For storage in the database, an SQL script can be generated, which must be executed later on, or the data can be stored directly via ODBC. The storage of report data at intervals might help you find out about changes to your system components (e.g. versions) or give you an overview of the state of your systems (overall, temperature, power, performance) over a period of time. As the creation of reports is based on already available data in the database, the scheduling of such tasks can be done more easily. The presentation of report data is executed immediately and summarizes values of interest to you in compact form. For example, system status values over a period of time can be shown in a graph to let you see the maximum values at a glance. The following figure shows the Inventory Manager s components: 6 ServerView Inventory Manager

7 Figure 1: Inventory Manager and its components Inventory Manager Inventory Manager is the Web-based user interface which supports the specification of data collections and reports and the export or presentation of report data. ServerViewDB (SV DB) The key component is the database, where all data collections and report specifications are stored, along with scheduling information for data collection and export of report data, as well as data gathered during data collection. Data Collection Data Collection gathers data from managed nodes, scheduled or once immediately, and stores it in the database. Data Export Data Export uses the collected data to create reports and store them as exported data in the file system or database. Data Presentation Data Presentation uses the collected data to create reports and presents them on screen. ServerView Inventory Manager 7

8 1 Introduction 1.1 Concepts Data collections Data Collections gather data from managed nodes and store it in the database. This data forms the basis for the creation of reports. Several types of system data are supported as the basis for a collection: Data type set Protocol Contents Inventory data SNMP General server information such as host name, net address, UUID, serial number. hardware, firmware, software system components Power Consumption data SNMP Power utilization; collected over a period of time Status information SNMP Overall system status; collected over a period of time Temperature data SNMP Ambient system temperature; collected over a period of time Performance data VME CPU, memory, network and storage; collected over a period of time Collecting Performance data is only possible if Performance Monitoring is enabled in the Base Configuration Wizard. Configuration Wizard - Threshold Management - Usage Performance Monitoring = Yes The type of protocol used for data collection depends on the protocol which can be used to access a managed node and which is appropriate for the type of collection. In most cases SNMP is used to connect to ServerView agents on a managed node. For performance data, the data which is collected by the VME Performance Service is used directly. 8 ServerView Inventory Manager

9 1.1 Concepts The data types can be used to define data collection tasks. Each data type can be used separately for a collection or some of them can be combined in one Data Collection definition. The Inventory Manager distinguishes two types of data types: Standard data types refer to the data types directly Customized data types are user defined and can refer to a set of data types Both standard and customized data type definitions can be used to run a Data Collection immediately or within a scheduled task. Before you create reports, you should define a data collection task to collect the data you require later on. If you want to use Update Management, it is essential that inventory data is collected regularly so that data in the database is always up-to-date. If you do not want to create reports or use Update Management, it is not necessary to collect any data at all. Moreover, if no data is collected, the database will not become overloaded with data. ServerView Inventory Manager 9

10 1 Introduction Report definitions Report definitions refer to data which is stored in the database and are used to define a report. A report definition can be built from a selection of supported database views. A report definition is defined by the name of such a view which defines the data contents. a selection of attributes which restricts or reorganizes the data contents. a filter definition which allows you to show only subsets of data. Each report definition refers to precisely one view with one selection of attributes and one filter. The Inventory Manager distinguishes two types of report definitions: Standard report definitions refer to predefined report definitions which include the most significant data with the most important attributes and no filter. Customized report definitions are user defined and can refer to a user specific selection of data, attributes and filter. Both standard and customized report definitions can be used to run a report. Before you create a report, you should check if there are report definitions available to define a report task which will later produce the data you require. Report definitions can also be defined directly when you specify a report. 10 ServerView Inventory Manager

11 1.1 Concepts Reports Reports are built from data which is stored in the database by previously running data collections. Reports form the basis for the presentation of this data on screen or its storage during an export task. The basis for a report is report definitions which refer to data in the database directly and might limit or reorganize the contents of this data. Each report definition can be used separately to define a report, or several can be combined. A report can then be used to export the report data to a file or database, either immediately, or on a scheduled basis. Or the report can be used to show the data immediately on screen. For export purposes, reports can be generated in CSV (Comma Separated Value), XML, PDF or HTML format. For storage in the database, an SQL script can be generated, which must be executed later on, or the data can be stored directly via ODBC. For use in presentations, report data can be shown as a table, line diagram, or pie diagram. In table presentation, all attributes defined in the report definition are listed. ServerView Inventory Manager 11

12 1 Introduction Tasks Tasks for collecting data and exporting reports follow the common Server- View task rules. The following are specified in a task: What is to be done, in this case collecting data or exporting a report When it is to be done - scheduled or once immediately Which servers are to be included list of assigned servers When a task is activated, a corresponding task is created on the Central Management Station, which runs in the background when the scheduled time is reached. The status and result of this task are stored in the database; output data from data collection is also stored in the database, export data in a file or the database. The status and result of these tasks can be seen in the Inventory Manager on the Manage Diagnostics tab. Here you will find an overview of the latest task runs and more detailed information in the log data for the task. 12 ServerView Inventory Manager

76 4 User interface Results step (Create Report Wizard) (for presentation on screen only) This step shows the presentation of the report. Depending on the settings you made in the previous steps, the presentation may comprise one or more tables, pie diagrams, and/or line diagrams. For presentation, saving and printing presentation data, the Inventory Manager internally uses third-party libraries containing fonts to present data in a certain manner. By default, these libraries try to use the "Arial" font for saving and printing data. The required libraries are expected to be installed on your local system where the browser is started. Generally, you can assume that such a font library is available on your system. However, this cannot be guaranteed for all systems where Server- View Operations Manager is installed or where the browser is started. This especially applies to Linux systems. Therefore, it might be necessary in some cases that you provide such a font for use in Inventory Manager by using the Load font button. Explicitly providing a font file is normally required only when the following warning occurred: Font does not contain all symbols necessary for displaying presentation. You may see wrong or missing symbols instead of meaningful characters. Please load a font that contains all required symbols. Usually, this happens only with Japanese characters. You can bypass this problem by loading an additional font manually: 1. Find an appropriate font (file type ttf or ttc). On Windows systems, fonts are located in %windir%\fonts On Linux systems, font files may be located, for example, in /var/fonts. Please search the Internet for details about installing fonts under the various Linux systems. 76 ServerView Inventory Manager

77 4.4 Manage Reports tab For European languages, the font should contain extended Latin mapping, digits and special symbols. To support Japanese language correctly, the font should contain both mapping sets of Japanese characters.normally, the font folders on your system contain a variety of font files, but not all of them meet the requirements. If you cannot see font files in your browser dialog (although shown by the file explorer in the file system), your browser might be missing the necessary access rights for this directory. In this case, please copy the relevant font files into a directory that can be accessed by your browser and try again. If you cannot find an appropriate font in the local font folders then please search the Internet for such a font and download the fonts to your system. For Linux systems, there are some rpm packages that contain helpful font files: ipam.ttf, VL-PGothic-Regular.ttf, VL-Gothic-Regular.ttf. 2. Select the appropriate fonts and copy them to your system. For selecting and installing the correct fonts and checking them for all required symbols, you have the option to either load the fonts one by one, or check the corresponding font by using special programs that show font mapping. Such programs are available for download in the Internet. 3. Click Load font to load the fonts from the system where your browser has been started into Inventory Manager (see below).

The default maximum number of sections displayed in a pie diagram is restricted to 10. Therefore, possibly not all of the original sectors may displayed in the diagram: The 10 biggest shares are each displayed in a separate sector. The aggregate values of the remaining sectors are shown in the Others sector.

Presentation Font Settings (for presentation on screen only) In this dialog you configure the font to be used in the "Results step (Create Report Wizard)" on page 76. For presentation, saving and printing presentation data, the Inventory Manager internally uses third-party libraries containing fonts to present data in a certain manner. By default, these libraries try to use the "Arial" font for saving and printing data. The required libraries are expected to be installed on your local system where the browser is started. Generally, you can assume that such a font library is available on your system. However, this cannot be guaranteed for all systems where Server- View Operations Manager is installed or where the browser is started. This especially applies to Linux systems. ServerView Inventory Manager 99

100 4 User interface Therefore, it might be necessary in some cases that you provide such a font for use in Inventory Manager by using the Load font button. Explicitly providing a font file is normally required only when the following warning occurred: Font does not contain all symbols necessary for displaying presentation. You may see wrong or missing symbols instead of meaningful characters. Please load a font that contains all required symbols. Usually, this happens only with Japanese characters. You can bypass this problem by loading an additional font manually: 1. Find an appropriate font (file type ttf or ttc). On Windows systems, fonts are located in %windir%\fonts On Linux systems, font files may be located, for example, in /var/fonts. Please search the Internet for details about installing fonts under the various Linux systems. For European languages, the font should contain extended Latin mapping, digits and special symbols. To support Japanese language correctly, the font should contain both mapping sets of Japanese characters.normally, the font folders on your system contain a variety of font files, but not all of them meet the requirements. If you cannot see font files in your browser dialog (although shown by the file explorer in the file system), your browser might be missing the necessary access rights for this directory. In this case, please copy the relevant font files into a directory that can be accessed by your browser and try again. If you cannot find an appropriate font in the local font folders then please search the Internet for such a font and download the fonts to your system. For Linux systems, there are some rpm packages that contain helpful font files: ipam.ttf, VL-PGothic-Regular.ttf, VL-Gothic-Regular.ttf. 100 ServerView Inventory Manager

101 4.4 Manage Reports tab 2. Select the appropriate fonts and copy them to your system. For selecting and installing the correct fonts and checking them for all required symbols, you have the option to either load the fonts one by one, or check the corresponding font by using special programs that show font mapping. Such programs are available for download in the Internet. 3. Click Load font to load the fonts from the system where your browser has been started into Inventory Manager (see below). Figure 32: Presentation font settings for reports Font file location Location of the font file. Default value: <Default font is used> is diplayed when no font file is selected. ServerView Inventory Manager 101

102 4 User interface Buttons Load font Opens a dialog that allows you to select the font file containing the appropriate font (file type ttf or ttc) and to load it into the Inventory Manager. As the font is saved in the database by using the Save button, it is sufficient to load the fonts to your system only once. As long as you do not unload or change the font file, it is used for presentation, saving and printing. Save Saves the current font settings to the database. Refresh Replaces the value currently shown in the Font file location field with the corresponding value from the database. When no font file is selected, the default font is used. Reset Clears the Font file location field and removes the name of the font file stored in the database.the font used is the default font now. Import The Import button is always disabled. 4.5 Manage Diagnostics Depending on the view you selected in the navigation bar on the left, different views are displayed on the Manage Diagnostics tab.
