    Enterprise models include the Entity and Event section.

    • Entities are used to track application, user, shared folder, disk space, and service consumption.
    • Events are identified with alerts that apply to entities.

    It is possible to measure the processes of an application by defining a new entity. There are five types of entities :
    • Application
    • User
    • Shared folder
    • Service
    • Storage Space
    In this example, we will set up an application type entity for Oracle.

    As you can see in the procedure below, creating an entity is quick and easy to configure.


    Creating an Entity:


    • Connect on the console, in the Management Server administration window, click on the Enterprise Models. 
    • Select 'Entities', right-click in the center and select 'New':

    • Create a "New Enterprise Model" and a new entity in that model:

    • Monitored Objects tab

    The first tab allows you to choose which Monitored Object(s) you want to attach the entity:

    Choose the OM (s) in the Central List and click on the "Definition" tab to set the entity.

    NB: You can test the validity of the regular expressions by clicking on "bcip0edq43k1.png"

    The test button allows you to verify that regular expressions work correctly

    • Once the entity is created, you must deploy it: Right-click and choose 'Deploy Selected Entities...' to deploy the entity to the agents.
