Spectrum Protect (Reporting and Monitoring)

Support newer browsers (IE11/Edge, for example) in TSM Monitoring

Monitoring/Reporting for Spectrum Protect must be updated to allow browsers beyond IE8 and IE9 for login to JazzSM to manage Cognos Reporting. Those browsers are the only officially supported by IBM, but are no longer supported by Microsoft. IE11/...

Journal Based Backup Stall

In this case, the journal database was not updating and so backups became stale until a Full Incremental was run. This request is for a monitoring alert for when the journal db does not receive any updates, perhaps in the last 24 hours.

Ops Center Reporting

similar to "To pull graphical representing reports from operation center (102024)". The canned "General Operations" report is very nice and useful. It would be nice if we could generate similar reports but there is no documentation on how to do that.

Operation Center - limit resource usage

Operation Center should have a way to limit the resource that it could use from the servers. By not having, this simple monitoring tool can put the production enviroenment in danger, using far more resources that it should.

Operation Center Reports - Server Groups and comma separated list of servers

Operation Center custom reports should allow selecting more than one server in "Configure Report", either by comma-separated list, or by server groups.

Reporting in TSM Operations Center

Given that TSM Operations Center is the direct replacement to the no longer maintained Administration Center, it would be nice to incorporate the Tivoli Common Reporting features into the TSM Operations Center.

Add filspace start/backup end time to Monitoring for TSM

The monitoring agent for Tivoli Storage Manager should collect information about backup start and end time for filespace backups (Occupancy view in Tivoli Enterprise Portal). This information is easily collectable in TSM database.

Include NAS Backups statistics in the data collection of Monitoring and Reporting.

Currently, the results from NAS Backups (NDMP) stored in the summary table is not collected in the WAREHOUS database. As such, it's also not possible to produce any custom reports on NAS Backups. Collecting the rows from the summary table where ac...
