Issue/Introduction

We are monitoring CDM using the MCS.
For the capacity management purpose, we need to get the information about Total Memory allocated to the servers.
Can you please confirm which checkpoint to enable us to collect the QoS for Total Memory allocated to the servers.

 

Environment

UIM 9.X
CDM v 6.42 - MC
Robot V - 9.20 HF3

Resolution

Total Physical Memory was hadded back in CDM 6.30

6.30
What’s New :
A new MCS template package cdm_mcs_template.
(MCS) Added IOSTAT template.
(MCS) Added QoS and alarms for Inode.
(MCS) Disks template is now a part of Default Disk template.
(MCS) Added Disk IO Template.
(MCS) Ability to monitor shared disks.
(IM, AC, and MCS) Added new metric for total physical memory. The probe now generates a QoS for total physical memory (RAM) of a system.

for total memory, you would need to enable

Physical Memory (Total) QOS_PHYSICAL_MEMORY_TOTAL MB Total amount of physical memory (RAM only) available in the system. 6.3

it t is given by "Memory Usage" in the enhanced profile (Physical + SWAP).

QOS_MEMORY_TOTAL (Total Memory MB) = (MemTotal + SwapTotal) / 1024
QOS_PHYSICAL_MEMORY_TOTAL (Physical Memory MB) = MemTotal / 1024
