Some metrics are always value zero

Hi,

Now I'm testing the Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control plug-in for F5 BIG-IP LTM.
The deployment has finished without errors, and after a while I could monitor some parameters from Enterprise Manger.
But I have problem that following metrics show always zero even though BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager Management Console shows some connections and traffics.


BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager > All Metrics > Nodes
Connection Limit
Current Connections
Maximum Connections
Node Bits In Rate(Kbps)
Node Bits Out Rate(Kbps)
Node Connection Used %
Node Total Connections/Sec
Total Connections

BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager > All Metrics > Server Pool Members
Connection Limit
Current Connections
Maximum Connections
Server Pool Member Bits In Rate(Kbps)
Server Pool Member Bits Out Rate(Kbps)
Server Pool Member Connection Used %
Server Pool Member Total Connections/Sec
Total Connections

BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager > All Metrics > Server Pool Members
Current Connections
Maximum Connections
Server Pool Member Bits In Rate(Kbps)
Server Pool Member Bits Out Rate(Kbps)
Server Pool Member Connection Used %
Server Pool Total Connections/Sec
Total Connections


I found similar thread "Anyone using the Oracle Enteprise Manager Grid Control plug-in for F5 LTM in production?",
http://devcentral.f5.com/Community/GroupDetails/tabid/1082223/aft/1167689/asg/63/Default.aspx
but it seems the thread is still open and the problem is not fixed.
And it seems there is no update for the thread from May 24, 2010, so I create new thread.

Do you know how to solve this problem ?


I test with following environment.
BIG-IP LTM version 9.4.7
BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager Plug-in 10.2.0.5.1 (downloaded from this forum)
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Release 5 Grid Control 10.2.0.5.0

Thanks.

Hi,

A engineer tried to access to BIG-IP management via iControl and tried to get SOAP Response for his SOAP request (Node_All_Statistics) by using SoapUI.
The attachment is the result.
Here you can see some values with tag.

Thanks.

Hi,

I tried to take detailed trace of this plug-in, and found Soap response in it.
And I compared it with node.java. ServerPlools.java and SererPoolMembers.java files.

In the Soap response, I found following values,
  STATISTIC_SERVER_SIDE_BYTES_IN
  STATISTIC_SERVER_SIDE_BYTES_OUT
  STATISTIC_SERVER_SIDE_CURRENT_CONNECTIONS
  STATISTIC_SERVER_SIDE_MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS

On the other hand, in *.java files, I couldn't find same ones but find similar ones as following,
  STATISTIC_CLIENT_SIDE_BYTES_IN
  STATISTIC_CLIENT_SIDE_BYTES_OUT
  STATISTIC_CLIENT_SIDE_CURRENT_CONNECTIONS
  STATISTIC_CLIENT_SIDE_MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS

After I tried to change these name from *SERVER* to *CLIENT* in the source code and compiled, the metrics which I referred in this thread had values (not 0) in Enterprise Manager.

As far as I compared these metrics with "F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager Management Console", the values are same.


Is this design/specification or source code bug?
I would like to know developer's opinion about this.

* Attached please find my Soap response result and corresponding Java code.

Thanks, Go

Thank you so much for the info. I finally had time to look at this, and your proposed change from _CLIENT_ to _SERVER_ for those three files (node.java, serverpoolmembers.java, serverpools.java) is exactly correct.

It seems this code was copy/pasted from one of three -other- files that -correctly- reference the _CLIENT_ stats, namely switch.java, virtualserver.java, virualserverstats.java.

I have fixed this in my source and it will get included in the next update.

George.
