LMS is an Oracle TSAM Plus Agent Tuxedo server. It provides the following functions:
Acts as the local Tuxedo domain data collection proxy
The performance metrics collected by the Oracle TSAM Plus framework are passed to the plug-in. Oracle TSAM Plus default plug-in sends the data to the LMS using the Tuxedo service infrastructure.
Plug-in metrics are stored in the LMS before being sent to the Oracle TSAM Plus manager data server. The LMS and Oracle TSAM Plus manager use the HTTP+XML protocol.
Other management information exchanges between the LMS and Oracle TSAM Plus manager.
The LMS must be configured in the UBBCONFIG file and set with the proper options. One Tuxedo machine must be configured with one LMS. Multiple LMS on one machine is not supported. LMS is recommended to be configured at the end of UBBCONFIG so that it can retrieve all server information when Tuxedo domain booted. LMS still can synchronize the configuration to TSAM Plus manager periodically.
Mandatory parameter. It specifies the Oracle TSAM Plus manager data servers addresses. You can set one or multiple addresses. The host address and port number are set based on your Oracle TSAM Plus manager installation. The format is:
host is the host DNS name or IP address of the box where TSAM Plus manager is installed.
port is the TCP port number.
tsam is the Oracle TSAM Plus manager reserved path name.
TSAM Plus server addresses can consist of two parts using semicolon (;): the first active data servers part and the second standby data servers part. Each part contains multiple TSAM Plus server addresses separated by comma (,).
LMS logs on with the TSAM Plus manager specified by the first address. If failed to connect, LMS tries the next server. If no active data server is available, the standby data Server is used. At most 126 servers can be configured.
If a connected server is failed for health checking, LMS reconnects the servers from first to last.
When the connection to a data server is broken, the thread reconnects the data servers from first to last to get another active data server which connection number does not meet the maximum value. If there is no server available, the thread keeps reconnecting the data server one by one with an incremental sleep interval specified by the -r option.
Configuring multiple TSAM Plus manager addresses has been supported since TSAM Plus 12.1.3.
Optional parameter. Specifies the size of shared memory used to store raw data metrics. The optional trailing letter k or m denotes KB or MB bytes, otherwise the unit is in bytes. The effective value is rounded up to 4K size since it is the page size for most platforms.
The default value is 10MB if this option is not present. The size of the shared memory will not grow at run time when there is no free space to store new data. In this case oldest data is replaced with new data.
Specifies the maximum sleep time (in milliseconds) of reconnecting when TSAM agent keeps failing to connect TSAM manager. The default value is 60,000 milliseconds.
Optional parameter. It specifies the time interval in seconds that LMS should connect to the Oracle TSAM Plus manager with configuration synchronization. The default value is 100 seconds.
Optional parameter, introduced since TSAM Plus 220.127.116.11. It specifies the amount of monitoring data sent by TSAM Plus agent to TSAM Plus manager per request. Valid value range is from 1 to 100 and the default value is 16. If configuring a value that is greater than 100, 100 will be used.
LMS creates multiple threads to fetch data from Ring Buffer and sends the data to Manager Server. This option specifies the total number of threads the data servers can be connected. The threads number is distributed to each active data server evenly. The maximum value is 1023.
