I had the pleasure to attend the “IBM Connections Pink Developer Briefing” last week in Dublin and I have to say it was the best IBM Workshop ever! Read more
Worked a lot with the ELK stack for log management and Nagios for system monitoring in the last months and like both solutions a lot.
They are very flexible and customizable to match almost every customer environment. So the natural next step was to combine both solutions to build a very powerful system monitoring and management solution for WebSphere servers (IBM Connections/IBM Sametime).
Ich habe dieses Jahr die grosse Ehre, einen Vortrag zum Thema “IBM Connections Monitoring mit Nagios und JMeter” an der DNUG im Hamburg zu halten.
Die DNUG ist die Interessenvertretung für alle IBM Collaboration Software Anwender in Deutschland und besteht schon seit mehr als 20 Jahren. Read more
Back from a very successful Social Connections event in Stuttgart, more than 260 participants were there and I enjoyed every minute!
Thx again the whole Soccnx team, the best event so far!
My session was titled “How to monitor your IBM Connections environment with Python Scripts, JMeter and Nagios” which is pretty self explaining.
I promised to publish all the plugins, here we go: Read more
Last week I had the pleasure to present a session at the ICSUG event in Bremen. Topic was how you can automate the installation of IBM Connections prerequisites, the installation of Connections itself and finally how you can automate post install tasks.
The event was a huge success, more than 100 people were attending, the Keynote was delivered by Kramer Reeves, almost 50 top-notch sessions and 15 IBM Champions were present.
Big thank you to Stefan Sucker and the WE4IT Team for this great event!
The Silence of the Installers on Slideshare
A movie how you can use all these scripts will follow soon.
It’s pretty sure that I will publish some of the code in future. Please contact me if you want to know in detail how this was done or if you want to help improving the scripts even further.
If you define your Webserver in WebSphere before you install your applications the apps/modules will not be automatically mapped to this server.
Same happens occasionally even if you have installed your apps before you Webserver.
I.e. if you want to map your Webserver manually to your IBM Connections installation you have to click hundreds of times inside the WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console or you use the following script which I created today:
If you already use Christoph Stöttners Connections Scripts from GitHub you are used to run the scripts through the cnxmenu.py. Right now this new script is not available in this menu but I will try to add it in future.
Have fun (and provide feedback if script works for you)!
