Configure Data Collection

This section describes how to define the connection for the brokers you wish to monitor and verify that data is collected from them. This configuration must be performed before running any deployment of the Monitor. This configuration is the only required configuration.

If you don’t have special requirements for running the monitor (such as running multiple data collectors in the same host), there is no need to cover the optional subsections. Consult Technical Support before modifying other configurations to avoid the circumstance of future upgrade issues.

Note that for Solace Cloud Event Brokers you will need the exact SEMP version on each of your Solace Cloud Brokers. See Obtain SEMP Version.

To define Solace Broker connections:

  1. Open the RTView Configuration Application, select Solace (in navigation tree)>CONNECTIONS tab and click ConfigUI_Connections_Add_button.gif.

  2. The Add Connection dialog opens.

  3. In the Add Connection dialog do the following:

  4. Repeat these steps to add more brokers and when finished, click cui_solace_AddconnSAVEbutton.gif to close the dialog and cui_save_button.gif (in title bar) to save your settings.

  5. The connections you created are listed in the Connections tab. For HA pairs, the connection string for the backup broker has "-B" concatenated to it.

  6. Click cui_requires_restart.gif to apply changes. The data server will be available again in 10-15 seconds.

  7. Open a browser and go to the Solution Package for Solace:

  8. http://IPAddress:8068/rtview-solmon if you are executing your browser on a different host than where the monitor is running.

    http://localhost:8068/rtview-solmon if you are executing your browser in the same host where the monitor is running.

    Use rtvadmin/rtvadmin for username/password.


    You should now see monitoring data. If you encounter issues, check the log files in the SolacePubSubMonitor/projects/rtview-server/log directory for errors.

  9. If you are going to:

Obtain SEMP Version

This section only applies to Solace Cloud Event Brokers. You need to provide the exact SEMP version on each of your Solace Cloud Brokers.

Use the Solace Cloud console to get the value for the Solace Broker Version field, under Stats. The broker version aligns with the SEMP v1 version. You will use the first three digits, including any decimal points, of the value shown in the Solace Cloud Event Broker Solace Broker Version field, concatenated with this string: VMR.

For example, if the value for the Solace Broker Version field is, you enter: 9.1.1VMR
