Manage Configuration Agent and Monitoring with
Policies
BPPM Server – Central Admin
• Define a package
• Deploy silent install
packages
• Define a policy
• Map agent to a policy
• Configure agent + KMs
Centralized, Automated, Repeatable

Eliminated Data Gaps and Latency Overall Implication
•
•
•
•
No data/event loss
– Automatic resynchronizing of missing
metrics and events
Data integrity between PATROL Agents and
BPPM Servers
– No polling
– Real-time data/events delivery
Fast and reliable failover of agents between
integration servers
Complicated processes and terminology are
now eliminated
• Autosync
• Adapter
• Manual Adapter

Events
PATROL Agent Events are automapped to the related monitors:
• Without sending all data to BPPM
servers, user can have visibility of
the issue at an instance level
• If Monitor is associated with the
CI in Service model then the
model will light up, event for nonComputer System CIs

Reduce Oracle Licenses Required to Run BPPM
Starting with BPPM 9.5
Prior to BPPM 9.5
A multi BPPM
server
environment with
3 leaf and 1
central server
would require at
least 8 Oracle
instances.
