    We have CA APM configured on our SiteMinder Policy servers.I'm trying to create a metric groupping based on host name of the machine as we would like to have dashboards showing some of the metrics just for production servers..


    The following expression works fine for the Metric grouping:


    Currently in order to have a only a set of policy servers in Metric grouping i had to define 3 separate Metric expressions as follows:

    SiteMinder\|Policy Server\|XX00Pyyy8[7-8]\|Operations:Responses Per Interval

    SiteMinder\|Policy Server\|XX00pyyy9[7-8]\|Operations:Responses Per Interval

    SiteMinder\|Policy Server\|XX00pyyy500]\|Operations:Responses Per Interval


    Note: The ManagementModuler Agent Expression for the above filter is (.*)\|(.*)\|(.*)


    I would like to know if i can define a Metric expression something like:

    SiteMinder\|Policy Server\|XX00p*\|Operations:Responses Per Interval


    as all our servers in a particular DC have same syntax with numbers changing at the end. i tried the following but none of them are working:


    SiteMinder\|Policy Server\|XX00*\|Operations:Responses Per Interval 


    SiteMinder\|Policy Server\|^XX00*\|Operations:Responses Per Interval ( server name starting with XX00


    SiteMinder\|Policy Server\|\|Operations:Responses Per Interval


    Similarly for CPU, Agent expression if i have the following it works:


    XX00Pyyy8[7-8]\|(.*)   OSResource\|Processor\|Processor _Total:(.*)

    XX00Pyyy9[0-5]\|(.*)   OSResource\|Processor\|Processor _Total:(.*)


    Instead i want something like

    XX00P*\|(.*)   OSResource\|Processor\|Processor _Total:(.*)

    Have you tried using .*  <--- notice the dot before the *


    SiteMinder\|Policy Server\|XX00p.*\|Operations:Responses Per Interval

    Hi :

    Was Matt's suggestion helpful or the same issue persists after trying it?
