Mike Mallo, IBM TADDM expert provides the following details on the event below:
writers made up of TADDM developers, services, and best practices teams
will spend a day with you to write new sensors. Since we are targeting
the new "simpler to write" community sensors for this program, we suspect it will take one to two days to complete the sensors with the sensor writers.
how it works. You provide the environment and domain knowledge for the
sensor writers to build an application sensor. Setup the application to
be discovered on a non-production server that you can make available to
the sensor writer so there is no impact to production systems during
the sensor writing process. Identify the key configuration files and
configuration parameters (up to 10) that TADDM should collect with this
sensor writer will write the sensor and make it available for testing,
and ultimately for publishing on our TADDM community exchange site.
A few notes:
the intent is to benefit the community with these sensors, we are only
looking to build sensors for commercially available applications, which
others in the community will benefit from as well, such as applications
on our hit list: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/wikis/display/tivoliaddm/Sensor+Hit+List
does not support PMRs or APARs on these community sensors. Since the
sensor source code gets published with the sensor, community members
are free to modify, recertify, and repost to add any capability or fix
any issues. As usual IBM supports related TADDM product issues under
your current support agreement.
June 17 is the next TADDM Community Sensor Day. Please show your interest by using the "Submit Feedback" link on the TADDM Community at http://ibm.com/tivoli/community/taddm to receive further logistics and details. Submission deadline is May 28, 2009.
