    Inline monitor_transport_opts?

    New Member

      I've seen previously that one could configure the context monitor_transport_opts with inline key/value pairs like:


      context monitor_transport_opts context|transport_lbtrm_source_port_low=15000\;context|transport_lbtrm_source_port_high=15500


      Instead of configuring the monitor_transport_opts with an external file like:


      context monitor_transport_opts config=/foo/bar/monitor_config.cfg


      Is the inline configuration specification still supported in UMS 5.3.x? If so is the inline configuration format documented anywhere?

          Yes, the inline configuration is still supported in UM 5.3.x. There is a link page in the Knowledge Base that lists all of the articles that have been written about monitoring:




          One article in particular contains an in-depth guide to monitoring and troubleshooting:




          I've also cut and pasted the relevant description of the command-line options for monitor_transport_opts:


          monitor_transport_opts (context)


          An option string to be passed to the LBMMON transport module for automatic monitoring. Individual LBM options can be specified as <scope>|<option>=value, where:

          <scope> is one of context, source, receiver, wildcard_receiver, or event_queue

          <option> is the LBM configuration option name

          As well as individually specified options, the config transport option can be used to load a normal UM config file and apply its settings (e.g. transport, topic resolution) to the monitoring topic. For example:

          lbmmon --transport-opts="config=LBTRM.cfg"


          So to specify the monitor_transport_opts inline you can do something like:


          lbmmon --transport-opts="context|resolver_multicast_address=;topic=stats_topic"


          Let me know if you need help for a specific example and we can work out the exact command-line that you need.
