  3. 3. 1 CHANGELOG Date Author Change Version 09/07/13 Mario P. First Version v1r1 Page 3
  4. 4. 2 INTRODUCTION This document aims to describing the basic windows system monitoring remotely using WMI and a server plugin. This plugin shows the information of % memory usage, % disk or filesystem usage and % total CPU. Normally with WMI we can only get the free size in bytes or % 1 processor usage, but with this plugin we can achieve the “%” remotely. Page 4
  5. 5. 3 REQUIREMENTS The plugin has the requirements to run: • Having remote wmi enabled server access from Pandora. • Perl and wmic installed (Essential for Pandora server). Page 5
  6. 6. 4 COMPATIBILITY MATRIX  The agent compatibility matrix is the following: Systems where it has been tested • Linux (SUSE, Ubuntu...) with wmic and  perl installed Systems where it should work • Any Pandora server Page 6
  7. 7. 5 MODULES GENERATED The Plugin create 3 possible modules. – % Mem Usage – % CPU Usage – % Disk use Page 7
  8. 8. 6 INSTALATION Copy the plugin to directory plugin server (/usr/share/pandora_server/util/plugin ) or load plugins by plugin loading option (pspz). Once realized the upload and check execute permissions are correct, it must be registered in Manage Plugins. In this case, we have used the User Option to define wmi user and Password field to define WMI user password. Once you have generated this plugin, we have to create different modules which will be explained in the next section. Page 8
  9. 9. 7 MONITORING The setting of the plugin modules that we can generate with this plugin is: – % Mem Usage It shows the % RAM usage in the system. This is the configuration that must be done to get this information with the plugin. Page 9
  10. 10. – % CPU Usage It shows the % CPU usage in the system. This is the configuration that must be done to get this information with the plugin. Page 10
  11. 11. – % Disk Use It shows the % Disk usage. This is the configuration that must be done to get this information with the plugin. In this case with the “-d “ parameter is the name of the unit which need to get the information. The other parameterization is the same for any unit to be monitored. Page 11
