The IBM Tivoli Enterprise Console (TEC) Connector (version 188.8.131.52.0) integrates Oracle Enterprise Manager with IBM TEC through web services, enabling you to exchange event information between the two systems.
The Oracle Management Connector for IBM TEC monitors all of the events forwarded from TEC and automatically updates alert information in the Oracle Enterprise Manager console whenever changes occur in TEC. A similar synchronization of alerts sent from Oracle Enterprise Manager occurs in TEC. This ensures that the two systems are always synchronized, providing administrators with current information about their entire data center.
Synchronization of the alert life cycle on both ends
Customization of alert mappings during the alert information exchange
Bi-directional flow of alert information
The state change of the event/alert in the originating system is reflected in the other system but not vice versa. For example, if an alert is forwarded from Oracle Enterprise Manager to TEC, all the state changes in Enterprise Manager are reflected in TEC. However, if you change the state of the alert in TEC, the change is not reflected in Enterprise Manager because the alert originated in Enterprise Manager. This is also the case for the other direction.
The following sections explain how the connector handles TEC events and polls the TEC web service.
Conceptually, alerts in Oracle Enterprise Manager are equivalent to events in TEC. Whenever an alert is triggered in Oracle Enterprise Manager, the TEC Connector can automatically create or update an event in TEC. You can use Notification Rules to specify the set of alerts for which events must be created, and the alert severity for which this should happen.
After the connector creates an event in TEC, any subsequent change of the alert severity is propagated to IBM TEC. When the severity of the alert changes to Clear in Oracle Enterprise Manager, the corresponding event is closed in TEC.
