GBDI 4.2

Supporting Multiple CMs

GBDI supports bringing in data from collectors that belong to multiple distinct Central Manager (CM) environments. The only difference in terms of configuration for such a case involves group members. Group members can be different across different CMs and group_members extract files arrive to GBDI from each of the CMs. In order for all these possibly distinct definitions to be unified you need to edit /etc/sonar/sonargd.conf and add the following:

  - group_members

This will create a separate group_members_hostname collection for each CM as well as a view called group_members that is a union of all the group definitions. You can build queries that use any members across all CMs or that refer to members of a group in a specific CM environment.
