Hello we've been successfully using IPM 2.4 from Ciscoworks 2000 for last 8 years. We recently migrated to LMS3.1 and all is ok except I'm unable to get the new IPM to work. I think the problem is down to something I'm missing or doing wrong...so if i can describe what we do and then describe how IPM is currently configured perhaps some good soul can point me in right direction to resolving it?
We have a webserver sitting on a server in our DataCentre and it hold 8 pdf files of various sizes.
We configure 42 routers to send a http get request to access each of these files via IPM and we measure response times etc., Reports are generated twice weekly for our customer.
In IPM 2.4 we created 8 different HTTP operations naming them STM-A, STM-B, STM-C...and so on. Each one pointing to a pdf file on webserver on the operation. We create 8 collectors for each router - and each collector points to the HTTP operations created. (hope I'm making sense!!!). We do not use Targets. It all works.
Initially when trying to replicate the settings used in 2.4 i had serious problems getting it work in the new IPM.
First it would not let me create a collector without selecting a target (for this i created a ad hoc target for the server hosting the pdf files). It would create the collectors and i can see them, but it doesn't seem to send the the configurations to the routers (all 1720's btw - but they do work on the old IPM).
I think i got it working once but i couldn't get the reports working....its a nightmare thats been going on for the last few months and i just need some guidance. I can provide screenshots, logs etc., if required.
thanks in advance.
The IPM graphs now use Flash, so make sure you have Flash 9 or higher installed in your browser. Given that the collectors are completing
successfully, you should see data points being drawn in the live Monitor graph. It should take two minutes to see the first point.
