The Dispatcher Tool was developed to diagnose and troubleshoot IBM Cognos BI environments and dispatcher settings in IBM Cognos BI versions 10.1, 8.4, 8.3 and 8.1. The tool runs on AIX, Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris and HP-UX
You can use this tool to find out any inconsistencies within the Dispatcher settings or to save the settings on a regular basis to track any changes.
You can run this tool: in debug mode; in graphical mode; in silent mode; and, in console mode.
The loaded file is being displayed by a tree view which also shows the running state of each Dispatcher and service.
Some nodes and properties may be highlighted in red. This indicates that the value of the same property in a lower level differs from the value of the property in the current level.
For example, the value for rsAffineConnections on the Global Configuration level is set to1, however, rsAffineConnections on the Report Service level is set to 4. This property will be highlighted in red on the Global Configuration level.
