Performance Module Dashboard Setup

MetaManagerâ„¢ Performance Dashboard looks allow you to see the performance of the infrastructure and the activity within IBM Cognos at the same time by providing users with real-time information on: server availability, CPU usage, and memory consumption. In addition to infrastructure information, there is specific Cognos BI information such as: which active users are currently in the environment, running and scheduled tasks, status of the Active Content Manager, and datasource validation.

Here's what you'll need to do to install the Dispatcher agent to allow the dashboard module to see and show activity on the servers.

First, you'll need to copy the MMPerfAgent.war file from the MMPerfAgent.zip to the {cognos}wlpdropins folder NOT the webapps folder.

Zip  MMPerfAgent.zip


In addition you will need to copy the dll's from the attached zip archive into a folder on the windows path. Copying them to the c:Windows directory will do just fine.

Zip  Performance Monitoring DLLs.zip

If you have an IIS configuration you will need to copy the Machine.ashx file into the {cognos}cgi-bin folder. Ensure you have your application pool running as a NetworkService.

Zip  Machine.zip

Note: In order to use the real-time monitoring features the Tech Data BSP Performance Agent must be installed on all servers needing to be monitored.
