DCAP Central 4.1

Supporting Multiple CMs

DCAP Central supports bringing in data from collectors that belong to multiple distinct Central Manager (CM) environments. The only difference in terms of configuration for such a case involves group members. Group members can be different across different CMs and group_members extract files arrive to DCAP Central from each of the CMs. In order for all these possibly distinct definitions to be unified you need to edit /etc/sonar/sonargd.conf and add the following:

split-collector:
  - group_members

This will create a separate group_members_hostname collection for each CM as well as a view called group_members that is a union of all the group definitions. You can build queries that use any members across all CMs or that refer to members of a group in a specific CM environment.
