This section of the PowerConnect Java UI deals with administrative settings for the PowerConnect Java Agent such as license keys. It also provides a view of license usage history, the PowerConnect Agent logs and the ability to test connectivity to Splunk.
This section displays current the PowerConnect license key applied to the system along with license details such as when the license will expire and the current day’s usage. There is also a history table showing the license usage for the last 30 days.
If required the PowerConnect Monitoring Plugins can be configured to use more than 1 thread for their data collection activities. See Configuration section below.
To test the PowerConnect user permissions a number of buttons are provided to test connectivity to the various endpoints the PowerConnect Java Agent may require.
To test connectivity to JMX press the JMX button. This is required for the PowerConnect Agent to function. The test uses the powerconnect user credentials supplied in the [General tab]. Make sure the PowerConnect user has JmxAdminAll permission for this test to succeed.
To test connectivity to Splunk press the Splunk button. This is required for the PowerConnect Agent to be able to send data to Splunk. The Splunk connection details should be supplied under the [Splunk tab].
To test connectivity to the SAP PI message system press the PI button. This is required for the PI Monitoring Plugin functionality to work. The test uses the powerconnect user credentials supplied in the [General tab].
For PI meta data collection the powerconnect user requires the SAP_XI_MONITOR_J2EE role. For PI payload collection the powerconect user requires the XiMdt.ExtendedMonitor role.
These settings can be changed using the [PI Monitoring tab].
These settings should not be changed without first consulting support.
