1 Introduction to the Connector

The IBM Tivoli Enterprise Console (TEC) Connector (version 1.0.4.1.0) integrates Oracle Enterprise Manager with IBM TEC through web services, enabling you to exchange event information between the two systems.

Connector Features

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.

The connector supports the following features:

The following sections explain how the connector handles TEC events and polls the TEC web service.

Oracle Enterprise Manager Alerts Transmitted to TEC Events

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.
