To configure Global Operations Manager, select Events > Global Operations Manager. The view shows the configured event sources that are forwarding events to this Resource Manager instance, and any event targets to which this Resource Manager instance is forwarding.
From here, you can:
View event sources
Add an event source
Remove an event source
Display event targets
Configured event sources appear in the top panel of the Global Operations Manager view. The event sources view shows these columns:
Table 3. Event Sources View
Yes, if the event source is enabled and events are being forwarded from the source to this system.
|Description of the event source.|
|HTTP connection information for the event source.|
|User name (with ZenAdmin permission) used to perform actions on the event source.|
|Yes, if updates to events forwarded from this source are synchronized between the source and target systems.|
|Yes, if transforms on the local system are applied to forwarded events from this source.|
|Yes, if device and organizer information from forwarded events are created on this system.|
|Yes, if criteria is defined for filtering forwarded events from the event source.|
Select Events > Global Operations Manager.
The Add Source dialog appears.
Enter values or make selections to add the event source:
Table 4. Add Event Source
Field Name Description
If selected, events (and updates, if Cascade Updates is enabled) from the system are forwarded to this system.
Description of the event source.
If selected, then any modifications to events made on the source are replicated to this instance, and any modifications made on this instance are replicated to the source.
If selected, then locally defined event transforms are run on forwarded events.
If selected, then devices, event classes, device classes, and device organizers (Locations, Systems, and Groups) are created on the target system from forwarded events. This enables contextual event consoles and event rainbows on the target; however, they are disabled by default for performance reasons.
Resource Manager Instance Settings
Fetch RabbitMQ config automatically
If selected, then the the RabbitMQ configuration used on the source system is determined automatically.
Host name of the RabbitMQ server on the source system.
Virtual host of the RabbitMQ server on the source system. The default value is /zenoss.
Port number of the RabbitMQ server on the source system. The default value is 5672.
If selected, then SSL is used when connecting to the RabbitMQ server on the source system. The default value is False.
User name used to authenticate to the source RabbitMQ server.
Password used to authenticate to the source RabbitMQ server.
By default, the event source forwards all events. Optionally, select the Criteria tab to specify which events are forwarded from the source. To define one or more rules:
Click Submit to create the event source.
Event targets are shown for informational purposes only. All Global Operations Manager configuration should be performed on the target Resource Manager instance. Changes made on the target instance are automatically replicated on the source Resource Manager instance.
The event targets view shows these columns:
Table 5. View Event Targets
Yes, if the event target is enabled and events and updates are being forwarded to the target.
Yes, if criteria is defined to filter events forwarded from this system to the target system.
Messages in Queue
Shows the number of messages (events and updates) waiting to be forwarded from this system to the target system. A large backlog of messages in this column may indicate a connection problem between the source and target system.
Event targets can be removed from the event targets view; however this is not recommended unless the target Resource Manager instance is known to no longer exist (it has been reinstalled or reconfigured). Typically, all configuration should take place on the target Resource Manager instance or instances.
