Issue/Introduction

How can I configure the cdm probe to show the top processes that are consuming the most CPU via MCS enhanced profile/templates?

This option is available when configuring cdm via IM, but I didn't see it using MCS. 

Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - MON_CONFIG_SERVICE_TEMPLATES

Resolution

MCS Enhanced profile does not support "to show the N top processes that are consuming the most CPU" as Alarm Policy does not have capability to provide any such kind of information. 

 

This is expected and known behavior and same has been published in CDM documentation. Please see below:

Few fields are not supported in the Setup CDM Enhanced template

Below are the few fields that are not supported in the Setup CDM Enhanced template, but are supported in the legacy template. Enabling these can have impact on the Monitoring data.

  • General Alarm and QOS Metrics Settings -> Send Alarm on Each Sample

    If you enable this field, there is no impact on the Monitoring data.

  • General Settings for CPU Monitoring -> Set QoS Target as Total

    If you enable this field, you cannot see some QoS messages for the CPU monitoring.

  • General Settings for CPU Monitoring -> Number of Top CPU-consuming Processes in Alarm

    If you enable this field,there is no impact on the Monitoring data.

  • General Settings for Memory Monitoring -> Set QoS Target as Memory

    If you enable this field, you cannot see some QoS messages for the Memory monitoring.
