If you expect to perform the same search frequently, you can create an XML file that specifies the search criteria.

Saved Mbean searches use a file that you store it in a specific directory in your vCenter Hypericinstallation. Each saved search will appear in the MBean Query page's Preset Searches menu.

When you run a saved search, the values you defined for the search Object Name Pattern, Attribute Regex Filter, and Operation Regex Filter appear in the text boxes at the top of the view.

1

Create a saved search in accordance with the schema described below in [Schema for JMX Search Criteria}, using the following convention:

SearchID-filter.xml

where SearchID-filter is a meaningful name for the search to which you append "-filter.xml" identifies the search.

The filters values defined in this file will then appear in the Preset Searches drop-down menu and will be named according to the filter ID.

Save the file in the following directory:

ServerHome/hq-engine/hq-server/webapps/ROOT/hqu/jmx/conf
