  • 1.  Magneto in the context of IIAS and call home

    Hi there,

    The term Magneto is new to me, especially in the context of IIAS, the next generation of Netezza, and the Call Home.

    IIAS doc says "You can test the Call Home service by triggering a test alert in Magneto......", however, it seems the term Magneto is not relevant to the Call Home in the context of Netezza. What is the Magneto in the context of IIAS and the Call Home?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    You mention Magneto so that has me a little thrown off but to test call home within IIAS

    You can run the following test to verify: To test call home "ap issues --generate_test_alert" one could check status and progress either by looking at the "ap issues" - command "ap issues" to find the issue number for the test event - command "ap issues XXXX" could also tail the call home log .... - first need to find latest current call home log "ls -ltr /opt/ibm/appliance/storage/platform/ras/callhome/log/callHome - tail the current call home log "tailf /opt/ibm/appliance/storage/platform/ras/callhome/log/callHome/callHome.0 .log" after testing is done, please issue command "ap issues --close_test_alert

    Thanks Carl for your sharing!

    Again, if Magneto is something in the context of IIAS, what is its role?

    When I look at the online IIAS docs for its features/deliverable, there are many things unclear to me. Do you have a link to the docs you may be reference to for its architecture/features?


    Thanks,
    Daniel

    I will do my best to explain this Magneto  Platform Service (really the IIAS Platform Management service)  which consist of:

    The platform manager: 
    • System management
    • System monitoring
    • Events and Alerts

    This link may or may not help but its a starting point to what the IIAS Platform Managment service.

    Thank you Carl for your two updates!  I will remember the formula then:

    Magneto = Platform Management Service.
