Prerequisites for Adding Data Collectors (IBM SVC)
Identify a server where the Data Collector software will be installed. Server requirements include:
64-bit OS. See the APTARE IT Analytics Certified Configurations Guide for supported operating systems.
Support Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 10.0.2.
For performance reasons, do not install Data Collectors on the same server as the APTARE IT Analytics Portal. However, if you must have both on the same server, verify that the Portal and Data Collector software do not reside in the same directory.
Install only one Data Collector on a server (or OS instance).
Ports: TCP 5988, 5989, SSH 22
SSPC (System Storage Productivity Center) with the CIMOM agent is required.
Gather the following required configuration details:
IBM SVC Master Console Server: IP addresses or name of the server. For embedded CIMOM, this is the node’s IP address and a separated Data Collector policy must be created for each node.
User ID & Password: Credentials to access the IBM SVC Master Console Server: Super User ID and password for CIMOM. The same user is used to execute CLI commands via ssh.
