Setting Up SSL

This section provides an overview of setting up SSL.

This configuration encrypts data that is sent from the agents to the Performance Monitor.

To set up SSL between agents and Performance Monitor:

  1. Install a digital root certificate on the web server.

    A digital root certificate from a trusted certificate authority (CA) must be installed on the web server that is hosting the monitor URL.

    Note: If the root certificate that is installed on your monitoring web server is from a nonstandard CA, then a copy of that certificate must be installed in the application server key store for the monitored databases. The agents load this certificate when they start.

  2. Specify https for the Monitor URL.

    • Select PeopleTools > Performance Monitor > Administration > Specify Monitor.

    • Enter the URL that is specified for the Monitor URL beginning with https.
