Access to statistics like memory, CPU, disk space - presentation in a dashboard

Hello IBM'ers,


As explained in support ticket TS010721444.

IBM PAoC customers of ours would like to be able to access certain statistics: memory, CPU, the information from the fileshare, etc. Meaning, how much space was used, what is total space, and hence, how much space remains ? What is the CPU % ? What is the memory consumed by the model and by the server.

In general (only) admin persons can have access to the information. This is in the administration portal. So I thought I would set up a cube for a number of these statistics, gathered with e.g. PowerShell. Then for on-premise customers I could use a very similar script. However, I don't have much success in accessing this information in the cloud offering. I tried various scripts in PowerShell but no luck.

I know that this information is available in the Administrator part of PAW. Also, certain threshold can be set and alerts can be sent automatically. Still the request is to have this information captured in a cube. For instance, to have the information over time (once a day for instance). It would fit nicely on a dashboard in PAW too. This can be beneficial to many customers, both cloud and on-premise, since they are not all admin to have access to that part of PAW.

How can this information be retrieved ? I already have TI execute a PowerShell script and I can retrieve memory usage (of 1 TM1 model but also the box on its own). CPU figures prove very difficult and disk usage even more difficult. I have the username and password of the FileShare.

I noticed the Agent that I think collects the data. Is it possible to interrogate the Agent through an API maybe ?

Also customers have their own monitoring software, hence the need to capture the data and consume them in the other software. I am okay with a REST API call to a cube, only, I cannot fill the cube with statistics I need and that are already available in PAW.

For example for the IBM cloud fileshare (\\data\s), this does not work: Get-PSDrive S

For C it works but S is of of interest to the customers.

Thanks !

    Meanwhile, with a few lines of PowerShell code, I was able to retrieve the fileshare data. Still, a less complicated and more direct approach would be 2048 fantastic!

    In the meantime, I could get the fileshare statistics from a few PowerShell snippets of code. Nevertheless, an easier and more direct way would be very good !
