Possible TBSM ITCAM for Applications Event Mapping Issues

by bluemedora_editor on June 27, 2011

Probable issues with TBSM Event Mapping may include one or more of the following deficiencies.

  • EIF Event Transmission is not Descriptive
    • The EIF Event Transmission sent from the EIF Emitter on the TEMS does not contain enough information for the event to be correctly mapped to a TBSM Service Component.
    • This indicates a deficiency in the Custom Situation
    • The most probable solution to this issue is to modify each Custom Situation after better understanding the “BSM_Identity” value of the TBSM Service Component to which the event correlates. 

 

  • Incorrect EIF Probe Rules
    • The rules defined in the EIF Probe incorrectly set the value of the “BSM_Identity” field.
    • This indicates a deficiency in the kub.rules file (generated by the omnibusUpdater.sh script from the kub.baroc file).
    • The most probable solution to this issue is to include a revised copy of the kub.rules file with the ITCAM for Applications Agent.
    • Other possible solutions include modifying the kub.baroc file included with the ITCAM for Applications Agent or including a revised copy of the omnibusUpdater.sh script included with the ITCAM for Applications Agent.

 

  • IdML Book is not Descriptive
    • The IdML Book does not contain enough information for XMLToolkit to create a unique “BSM_Identity” value for each TBSM Service Component.
    • This indicates a deficiency in the TMSDLA.
    • The most probable solution to this issue is modification the TMSDLA included with the ITCAM for Applications Agent.

 

  • Incorrect XMLToolkit Rules
    • The XMLToolkit incorrectly sets the value of the “BSM_Identity” field.
    • This indicates a deficiency in the EventIdentifierRules.xml file.
    • The most probable solution to this issue is to discuss modification of the EventIdentifierRules.xml file with IBM’s XMLToolkit team.
