GL SLC Plug-in - Technical Reference

Introduction

The Geneos GL SLC plug-in allows Geneos users to monitor the saturation metrics of an SLC log file.

Views

Dynamic Exchange View

Unlike most Geneos plug-ins view are generated dynamically. Each time an SLC log file is read the new exchanges will be added as new views and the views that already exist will be updated. Each exchange view shows the scanDate to indicate the day that it was read.

Note: The scanDate will only be displayed after the whole SLC file is read. This allows the user to match up any Dataview to a file via the scanDate (this will match the log file's last modified time).
