IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Control Center rules: Time value key needed

I currently have a Control Center rule setup for message ID's CCTR135I or CCTR138I. I want to be alerted if inserts or retrievals take 1 minute or more. I do not see a way to do this currently with the keys that are available. Right now, I have it setup as a linked rule, but that is not fulfilling my requirement. I believe that a time value key is needed in order to do this.

    What you desire is achievable now, in the supported 6.1 and 6.2 releases of IBM Sterling Control Center. :-)

    Let me explain.

    Control Center emits

    - CCTR135I Event insert took too long,

    - CCTR137I Event update took too long, and

    - CCTR138I Time Event Monitor took to retrieve EVENTS data took too long

    events when certain engine property values are exceeded. Settings you are able to change!

    So if you'd like to have a CCTR135I event generated if an insert takes more than a minute, you would just need to set an engine property accordingly.

    One caveat you should know is Control Center will emit at most one of these events per hour (per thread used to do database I/O).

    To affect CCTR135I events, specify the engine property INSERT_EVENT_DB_WARN_TIME and override the default value of 2000.

    To affect CCTR137I events, specify the engine property UPDATE_EVENT_DB_WARN_TIME and override the default value of 1000.

    To affect CCTR138I events, specify the engine property EVENT_MONITOR_SELECT_EVENT_TIME_WARNING and override the default value of 2000.

    The unit for all of these values is milliseconds, so to specify 1 minute you would use 60000.

    Note for changes to these engine properties to take effect, you must restart your system.

    Thanks for submitting an ehancement request. We need to review this further.
