Can I using the built in beta 3.0 v278 server and its clients running the client software, get the information about these client in comma separated format so I could put the data in a XLS spreadsheet or a url . ? Info like ip address, cpu.memory,netmask, applications etc ???
I think all of what you are looking for can be pulled out into an XML file using the CLI, but if you are still having problems with using the CLI with the 278 build, that will be of little help. If 278 still is giving you problems with hq-shell, you should be able to get what you want with the next published build by doing something like the following:
hyperic@server ~/shell-3.0.0 $ ./hq-shell.sh hq-shell::not-logged-in> login hqadmin@localhost Password: Successfully logged in as hqadmin at localhost:2099 hq-shell::hqadmin> resource export resource_export.xml Exporting HQ inventory to 'resource_export.xml' ... Exporting platform 'foo' ... Done Exporting platform 'bar' ... Done Validating 'resource_export.xml' ... Done
Although I've not grabbed this kind of information through a direct query of the database myself, I am fairly certain it is possible to do so. It would probably be much less straight-forward than what I have shown above.
I updated to 296 and am able to NOW login to the shell and run your commands . The commands produced the XML file with much information . I was wondering though if the INFo that one gets upon clicking resource (platform) at the top of the page ,things like Description: Ubuntu 6.06,Default Gateway: 126.96.36.199,Vendor Version: 6.06,OS Version: 2.6.15-27-amd64-server could be collected for each platform and put into a comma separated file. I seem to remember seeing a forum question that said how to perhaps do this. Do you have any suggestions ??. Im not to familiar with XML files. My boss has setup some web pages with all the servers we administrate and I think he would like to populate it with INFO the HYPERIC collects He has php files on the web . Also I see in your admvertise ments about creating custom demos for people . Is that for Enterprise supported users ONLY? I know our admins are looking for a product that can replace SERVERS ALIVE. .that monitors our windows,unix,and linux boxes and send out alerts when they go down. I think thet use pings BUt I cant seem to figure out how to ping all these systems and send alerts with hyperic. Also I think the windows group my be interested in monitoring event logs . Are the controls and actions part of OPEN SOURCE or only with the Enterprise version.???
