The instructions in the section apply to server types whose plugin uses event-based configuration tracking, listed below.

To enable and configure configuration tracking for a resource of one of the following server types:

Tomcat

Apache

WebSphere

WebLogic Server

JBoss

PostgreSQL

mySQL

Oracle

1

Navigate to the server instance.

2

Select Configure Server from the Tools menu.

3

In the Monitoring section of the page:

a

Verify that the Enable Config Tracking checkbox, which enables and disables configuration tracking for the server, is checked.

b

In the Configuration Files field, specify the files you wish to monitor, as follows: path;recurse;regex1|regex2,path2;recurse;regex1|regex2|...|regexN

c

Click OK.

For MySQL, the default value of the Configuration Files field, which specifies which files to track is:

/etc;false;my\.cnf;,/etc/mysql;false;my\.cnf;,;false;my\.cnf;
,~/;false;\.my\.cnf;,/usr/local/mysql/data;false;my\.cnf;
,/usr/local/var;false;my\.cnf;,%WINDIR%;false;my\.ini|my\.cnf;
,c:;false;my\.ini|my\.cnf;,;false;my\.ini|my\.cnf;

When configuration tracking is enabled, this filter causes vCenter Hyperic to track my.cnf in the following directories:

MySqlHome/etc

MySqlHome/etc/mysql

MySqlHome

the home directory of the user under which MySQL runs

/usr/local/mysql/data

/usr/local/var

the Windows directory
