The CameronFIX Status plug-in provides a view of the status and summary webpages generated by a CameronFIX server. This view is updated in real-time, and, in combination with the Geneos Rule Manager can be set to alert an administrator when the monitored values exceed a set threshold.
Multiple servers can be monitored by using multiple instances of this plug-in - one instance per view required. These views can then be shown inside a single Managed Entity or across multiple Managed Entities as required.
This view shows status information, taken from the status webpage generated by the CameronFIX server. E.g.:
This view shows summary information, taken from the summary webpage generated by the CameronFIX server. E.g.:
In addition to the columns usually supplied by the summary page, an "Error" column will be shown in this view. This column would indicate any error conditions relating to the sessions. Currently, if a session is scheduled but not logged on, it would show "Scheduled, not logged on".
The following parameters can be configured for this plug-in:
The URL of the status page generated by the CameronFIX server. If not specified, the status view will not be produced.
Either this setting or the fixSummaryURL must be specified.
The URL of the summary page generated by the CameronFIX server. If not specified, the summary view will not be produced.
Either this setting or the fixURL must be specified.
The FIX-CAMERON-STATUS plug-in can access pages protected by HTTP Basic authentication, provided a username and password are configured in this section.
Basic authentication is when the web server requires the user to login before the web page is sent. This is different to embedded authentication (where the login dialog is embedded within the web page) which is a session-based login - this type is handled by the login settings below.
HTTP authentication requires that the user specify both a username and password. The password can either be specified in plaintext or using standard encryption to protect against users reading the password from the gateway configuration file.
Specifies the username used with HTTP authentication. The username cannot contain the : (colon) character.
Mandatory: Yes - if httpAuthentication is specified.
Specifies the password used with HTTP authentication, in plaintext form.
Mandatory: Yes - either this setting or std must be specified.
Specifies the password used with HTTP authentication, in standard encrypted form. If not using the gateway setup editor (GSE) a password can be generated by running the gateway as follows:
gateway2 -en <password>
Mandatory: Yes - either this setting or plaintext must be specified.
Use this section to enable authentication. If this section is not specified, logging in will not be attempted and the plug-in will attempt to go directly to the data pages.
The names and values of the authentication parameters to POST to the login URL. Typically this should include "username", "password" and a third parameter representing the login button press. E.g.:
parameters parameter name: username value: scott parameter name: password value: tiger parameter name: logonOK value: logOn
