ULLINK ULBRIDGE Plug-in - Technical Reference
EOLThe end of life for ULLINK ULBRIDGE plug-in is on 30 April 2017. This documentation is archived and will no longer be updated.
The ULLINK ULBRIDGE Plugin gathers information on the UULINK ULBRIDGE system, and publishes this information into the Geneos monitoring system, exposing it to the Geneos monitoring, alerting and logging mechanisms.
The plugin gathers information on the ULBRIDGE system by interrogating it on a number of topics. By default, ULBRIDGE is queried on 6 topics. Further topics can be added to this list (and default ones removed) through the use of plugin configuration parameters (see Technical Reference later in this document).
The plugin does not look for specific information or fields in the data that ULBRIDGE returns (ULBRIDGE output), but treats this data in a generic way. Therefore it can handle new information that can appear on the ULBRIDGE output, as long the ULBRIDGE output confirms to one of the formats understood by the plugin.
The following sections show the default topics and a typical resulting view for each topic.
