As a reminder, you should install product support on each of your TEM servers for
any agents you have just installed.
This is done via the "/opt/IBM/ITM/bin/itmcmd support" command on your TEM
servers.
You may now configure any locally installed IBM Tivoli Monitoring product via the
"/opt/IBM/ITM/bin/itmcmd config" command.

Configuration

Now we can configure our newly installed agent. Start the configuration by running the following command in your CANDLEHOME/bin directory:./itmcmd config -A p9You will be asked to enter a descriptive instance name:Agent configuration started... Enter instance name (default is: ): psps01Choose to edit the “Monitoring Agent for PeopleSoft Domain” settings and the “Basic” settings. Th

Instance Name psps01 A descriptive name used to identify the instance.

Fully qualified path of the folder where the Process Scheduler logs are located /apps/psoft/hrms9/appserv/prcs/DH9848DB/LOGS The fully qualified path to the folder containing the logs for the scheduler being monitored.
Database Name DH9848DB The Database name for the Process Scheduler being monitored. This can be found in the psprcs.cfg file.

Logging Level of the Agent Warn This is the logging level of the agent. Most users will want to set this to the WARN level.

After entering the configuration options for your environment, you need to also enter the connection settings for your TEMS. After that, you need to preserve the PeopleTools environment for the user account that is running both PeopleSoft and eventually the agents (they must be the same user). To do this, you must edit the .profile for that user. Add the following line:. [ITM home]/[platform code]/[product code]/bin/preserve_pt_environment.shWhere [ITM home] is the IBM Tivoli installation directory, [platform code] is the code for the operating system, and [product code] is the product code for the agent (P8 or P9). Congratulations, the configuration is complete! Make sure to switch to the same user that PeopleSoft is running on before starting the agents.
