Overview

Introduction

FileCatalyst Direct has an optional management package called FileCatalyst Central that includes the ability to monitor Server and HotFolder “nodes” and send alarms according to status. With this package, the administrator may:

  • View the status of nodes using the web-based console
  • Remotely control and administer connected Server and HotFolder nodes
  • Configure alerts to be sent using SNMP and/or email.

The package includes files needed to run the application, as well as the MIBs to be used by both SNMP v1 traps and v2c notifications.

The web-based console includes the ability to view ongoing transfers in real time, see the overall health of your system, and dig into transfer history and statistics. Administrators with full privileges may configure the monitoring console service, or launch Java applets for remote control of connected nodes.

Deployment Diagram

Web-based FileCatalyst Central is the centerpiece for monitoring and managing FileCatalyst Direct products. Within the console the administrator may view ongoing transfer tasks, check on alarms raised by any connected nodes, remotely control a FileCatalyst node, and configure nodes or FileCatalyst Central itself.

FileCatalyst Central Diagram

The above illustration shows how connections are configured for a full monitoring and management scenario:

  1. FileCatalyst Central is deployed to a location reached through firewall and NAT:
    • The web interface is exposed via HTTP (port 8080 by default)
    • Administrative activities (node status, alarms, and remote management) are exchanged over TCP (port 12500 by default)
  2. Web browsers allow the administrator to view and administer the system. There is typically no need on the administrator's end to configure the required connections:
    • The web interface is served by FileCatalyst Central over the HTTP port.
    • Remote administration applets are served passively by FileCatalyst Central over the TCP port.
  3. FileCatalyst Servers are available for file transfer through firewall and NAT:
    • TCP and UDP for the control connection (port 21 by default)
    • UDP for the data port range (8000–8999 by default)
  4. FileCatalyst Servers have the additional ability to report status, alarms, and other information to the console. Usually, no special configuration is needed on the server side to form this passive connection.
  5. FileCatalyst HotFolders typically requires no configuration to form passive connections to the Server (for transfers), nor to the console (for reporting status, alarms, and other information).

Install FileCatalyst Central

Note: FileCatalyst Central may be deployed on the same machine as any other FileCatalyst application, but is more appropriately installed on a separate machine to independently monitor the health of all other FileCatalyst nodes.

Verify Java Version

FileCatalyst products require Java 1.6 or higher to function. Open a command prompt/terminal and type:

java –version

which will give you the version number of your Java installation.

If Java is present and sufficient, you are ready to begin installation. Otherwise, download and install Java from Java.com. Only Oracle products (HotSpot or OpenJDK) are officially supported.

Stop Service From Running

If upgrading rather than installing from scratch, you may have a FileCatalyst MonitoringAgent service already running. You must stop this service before proceeding.

Windows

  1. Download the FileCatalyst MonitoringAgent installer (install_fc_monitoringagent.exe) to your desktop
  2. Launch installer:
    • Vista/2003/2008/7: you should right-click the icon and select “Run as Administrator”. You will also need to trust the installer application.
    • 2000/XP: double-click icon to launch installer
  3. Step through the wizard to choose installation directory and shortcut options
  4. At end of wizard, click “Finish”
  5. The application on Windows will automatically install and start as a service. Changes to the configuration file (if required – see guide below) only come into effect by stopping and restarting the service.

Linux, Solaris, AIX, Unix

  1. Create directory at /opt/utechsoft/monitoringagent
  2. Download tarball (fc_monitoring_agent.tar.gz) to this directory
  3. Use GUI-based archive tool to unpack the tarball, or open a terminal and enter with the following commands:
    > cd /opt/utechsoft/monitoringagent
    > gunzip fc_monitoring_agent.tar.gz
    > tar –xvf fc_monitoring_agent.tar
  4. Make a backup of the file maconfig.conf, naming it maconfig.bak or another easily identifiable name.
  5. Open README and continue following the instructions in order to complete installation
  6. The MonitoringAgent should be installed as a service. Instructions on how to accomplish this can be found in the ./service_wrapper/SERVICE_WRAPPER_README file.

Mac OSX

FileCatalyst Central is currently only supported for “standalone” execution:

  1. Copy the Mac OSX zip archive (FileCatalystMonitoringAgentWC.zip) to your desktop.
  2. Double-click the zip archive to extract the application to your desktop. A new icon (FileCatalystMonitoringAgentWC) will appear on the desktop.
  3. Double-click the icon to launch the monitoring console. A small window will appear, presenting the user with the option to stop the server:
    FileCatalyst Central Running Window

Preparing FileCatalyst Deployment for Monitoring

After installation, you must perform an initial web-based configuration to put the console UI online and make dispatchers available. FileCatalyst Server and HotFolder nodes must then be configured to make them visible to the console.

Configure FileCatalyst Central

Apply a License Key

  1. Start the FileCatalyst Central service if it is not already started
  2. Using a web browser, navigate to the IP of the console, using port 8080 (http://192.0.0.1:8080)
  3. Copy the request string from the page that appears and send it to your FileCatalyst representative, who will provide a key in return.
  4. Enter the license key into the text field and click “Update License”

Update Password

  1. After the license key is applied, you may log in with the defaults:
    • Username: admin
    • Password: admin
  2. Select “Configuration” from the tools menu, then configure and update passwords. You may optionally update the corresponding usernames:
    • update the Remote Connections Configuration password (“12345” after initial installation)
    • Set a new Web Administration Configuration admin password “admin” after initial installation)
    • set the Web Administration Configuration read-only admin password (“user” after initial installation);)

Select Listener IP

This is the IP remote administrators will use to connect to the console to request remote administration applets and other resources. It is typically the public IPv4 address.

  1. Go to “Configuration” page
  2. In the Remote Connections Configuration, select a Listener IP

Further Configuration Options

While setting license and password, you were on FileCatalyst Central's Configuration page. Most options are available through this page, which will be discussed in greater detail in the FileCatalyst Central Interface section.

While most options are available in this web interface, be aware that certain options such as the HTTP Port number for the web application, are available only by modifying the configuration file directly. Please see the FileCatalyst Central Configuration File section for more details.

Configure FileCatalyst Server

Monitoring is disabled by default. To allow the FileCatalyst Server to report to and be managed by FileCatalyst Central:

Server Alarms Screenshot
  1. Click “Central Mgt” in the main menu at the left
  2. Check “Enable remote monitoring…” checkbox
  3. Set the address and port of FileCatalyst Central
  4. Enter username and password set during configuration
  5. You may also select the IP and Alias (an easy-to-recognize name of your own choosing) which the Monitoring Agent will use to contact and identify this Direct Server
  6. Click “Apply”

Configure FileCatalyst HotFolder

A HotFolder will not be able to share its status and admin privileges with FileCatalyst Central until it has been enabled:

HotFolder Alarms Screenshot
  1. Click “Central Mgt” in the main menu at the left
  2. Check “Enable remote monitoring…” box
  3. Set the address and port of FileCatalyst Central
  4. Enter username and password set during FileCatalyst Central configuration
  5. You may also select the IP and Alias (an easy-to-recognize name of your own choosing) which the Monitoring Agent will use to contact and identify this HotFolder
  6. Set which transfer events trigger a notification (note that “Success” is a valid notification as well; on a high-volume deployment you may not wish to notify for all successful transfers.
  7. Click “Apply”

Alarm Details

All alarms have multiple values assigned to them to better understand the fault and the service raising the alarm.

FileCatalyst Central Alarms Detail View
  1. Details: Click the “+” widget to show details related to the row. Some of these details are already visible in the table row itself, but the expanded view provides the full text for each, along with some details not otherwise available:
    • Node Type: the type of FileCatalyst product raising the alarm (HotFolder, Server, Central)
    • Node Alias: user-defined name for the node
    • Node AgentID: a unique ID assigned to the node automatically during the installation process
    • Hostname: the machine name, if available
    • Node IP: IPv4 address for the machine if available; otherwise will show the IPv6 address
    • Alarm Name: the full name of the Alarm as used internally by FileCatalyst Central
    • Alarm State: the only expected value should be SET. Other alarms are moved to the Alarm History view
    • Alarm Severity: one of “Critical”, “Major”, “Minor”, “Notification”, “None” in descending order of urgency
    • Alarm TimeStamp: full date the alarm was raised, with GMT time zone
    • Alarm Description: human-readable description of the alarm, also containing technical information when relevant
    • Alarm Transaction: a unique transaction number for this particular instance of the alarm
  2. Node: user-defined name for the node
  3. Hostname: name of the machine with the FileCatalyst product installed to it
  4. Alarm Name: a shortened version of the internal “Alarm Name” visible in the details view.
  5. Severity: one of “Critical”, “Major”, “Minor”, “Notification”, “None” in descending order of urgency. Items in the severity column are also color-coded based on severity, with bold red being the most severe.
  6. Time of Alarm: time the alarm was raised in dd:hh:mm format
  7. Alarm Description: human-readable description of the alarm. If text is truncated, hover (iOS single-tap) to view in a tooltip, or click on the “Details” icon to view all alarm details including full description.
  8. Discard All / Discard: Clicking “Discard All” in the header will discard all current alarms. Click “Discard” on a per-row basis to discard individual alarms. Note: discarding an alarm does not necessarily permanently remove it. If a node continues to have a communications error, for example, the alarm will be re-raised at the set interval. Notifications will not re-appear in this view once discarded.

The Configuration File

All of the configuration options available through the user interface are accessible through the FileCatalyst Central's configuration file, maconfig.conf. This file is located directly in the install path of the core application.

Making Modifications

The only reliable way to work with this file is:

  1. Stop the FileCatalyst Central application from running. In most cases, this will mean stopping the service.
  2. Modify the configuration file using the editor of your choice
  3. Save the configuration file
  4. Run the FileCatalyst Central application. This will usually mean restarting the service.

The format of the configuration file is relatively straightforward. Hash symbols (#) denote comments, with the remaining parameters in a “parameter=value” syntax with each parameter having its own line. Here is a sample of the maconfig.conf file:

# Location of alarm history file and active alarm XML file.
# If full path if not indicated, a relative path is used (where JVM is launched).
FCMonitoringAgent.config.active.alarm.list=alarmactive.xml
FCMonitoringAgent.config.historical.alarm.log=alarmhistory.log

# List of agents to be monitored.
FCMonitoringAgent.config.agents=agentlist.xml

# Polling interval of MonitoringAgent towards monitored applications
# Default value once per minute (60000)
FCMonitoringAgent.config.polling.interval.millis=60000

Parameters Only Found in maconf.conf

Certain parameters are not exposed to the web interface. In some cases, the defaults are expected to provide the best scenario; in others there are practical limitations to exposing the parameter (for example, changing web server port).

  • Windows service configurations: a collection related to how the service behaves in Windows. Among these are heap size parameters (wrapper.java.initmemory, wrapper.java.maxmemory) and Java class path (wrapper.java.classpath.x
  • Wrapper Logging Properties: a collection related to logging behaviour:
    • wrapper.console.loglevel
    • wrapper.logfile
    • wrapper.logfile.format
    • wrapper.logfile.loglevel
    • wrapper.logfile.maxsize
    • wrapper.logfile.maxfiles
    • wrapper.syslog.loglevel
  • Wrapper NT Service Properties: These properties may not be modified while FileCatalyst Monitoring Agent is installed as a service. Please uninstall the service before modifying, and then reinstall the service once complete.
    • wrapper.netservice.name
    • wrapper.ntservice.displayname
    • wrapper.ntservice.starttype
    • wrapper.ntservice.interactive

Understanding Alarms

Alarm Polling

The MonitoringAgent handles fault management by polling active services. Should a fault occur and be cleared inside of the polling interval, alarms may not be raised.

The longer the polling interval, the longer it will require for the alarm condition to be raised.

Note: Communication between the FileCatalyst Server and the MonitoringAgent is verified/reestablished at every polling interval. If using the Server Administration GUI to view alarms, restarting the FileCatalyst Server (example, as the result of a configuration change) will automatically sever communication sockets, preventing alarms to be viewed until the next polling interval. It is recommended to have the polling interval value set to between 10 seconds to 5 minutes (5 000 to 300 000 ms).

Behavior based on Severity

All alarms that are sent out have a severity assigned to them. They are defined as follows:

  • CRITICAL alarms indicate a complete loss of file transfer ability
  • MAJOR alarms indicate a partial loss of file transfer ability
  • MINOR alarms indicate a partial or complete loss of sub-functionality not related to file transfer
  • NOTIFICATION alarms indicate a one-time event of interest

CRITICAL, MAJOR, or MINOR alarms that are SET will be explicitly cleared when the fault condition is resolved. A matching transaction number can be used to pair up SET and CLEAR alarms to indicate that the fault no longer exists. If the alarm condition persists after a set period (broadcast interval), the alarm will be resent to overcome possible message loss (email server down, SNMP UDP packet loss).

NOTIFICATION alarms have no matching CLEAR alarm sent out. Instead, the alarm is considered to have a limited lifetime (default 15 minutes) before the alarm is considered invalid and consumed (decay). If the alarm condition persists after the alarm has decayed, a new fault condition will be raised.

MIB Definitions

UNLIMI-TECH-GENERAL-MIB

The general MIB contains general company information and structure. This sparse MIB provides a base of extensibility for future releases.

Currently, the only other available MIB in production is unlmtchAlarms:
