This section describes the Service Model and how to configure it. Configuration of the Service Data Model is optional.
Note: Before you configure the Service Model you must configure all the RTView DataServers you wish to include in your RTView Enterprise deployment.
After you configure the Service Model you can revise your settings in the RTView Enterprise Administration - CMDB Admin display.
To configure the CMDB you associate each CI in your system with a Service, Group, Area and Owner. These associations form the map that enables aggregation of data in RTView Enterprise Service displays. There are several ways to create the CMDB:
Manually, using the RTView Configuration Application and the Administration - CMDB Admin display. See Configuration Steps .
Import an existing structure from a spreadsheet or database.
If the data is available to the Configuration Server, you can read it dynamically by populating the structure from the raw data.
Any combination of the above.
