Configuring URL auto-learning

Operation auto-learning enables you to define the set of operations identified by the analyzer, without the need to manually define each operation. Operations that are found frequently are learned and reported.

Skill level: advanced user

This screen offers functionality suitable for expert users.

  • If you are new to software services, start with Software services for beginners before you come here.
  • If you want to monitor a well-known software service, start with Autodiscovered Software Services to see if your work has already been done for you.
  • If you find you still need to define your own software service, try to use the wizard or a template to walk you through the process. You can always use the manual screens to tweak a software service after you create it with the wizard. See Software Services for details.

Access

  1. In NAM Console ► Deployment ► Manage devices, select NAM Probe Configuration ► Open configuration.
  2. On the NAM Probe Configuration screen, select Software Services ► User-Defined Software Services.
  3. On the User-Defined Software Services screen, select the software service for which you want to edit dimensions, metrics, or attributes.
  4. Right-click in the Rules table to add or edit a rule.
  5. On the Edit Rule screen, open the URL Auto-Learning tab.

Configuration

Start by choosing whether and how to enable URL auto-learning:

  • Off – URL auto-learning is disabled for this service.
  • Global settings – URL auto-learning is enabled for this service but settings are inherited from the global settings.
  • Custom settings – URL auto-learning is enabled for this service and enables the controls in the Advanced settings section below. These settings will override the equivalent global settings.
  • All – URL auto-learning is enabled and all URLs are learned.

Size of reported URLs pool

Specify the size of reported operations pool.

If necessary, you can change the default size of reported operations pool. The pool is shared among all monitored servers. The auto-learning algorithm aggregates the operations for all servers - the server IP, port or any other attribute of the server is not taken into account by the auto-learning algorithm. Any member of the pool will be reported for all servers, regardless the activity on individual servers.

Number of reported URLs

Enter the number of reported elements.

You can specify the maximum number of different operations that will be reported and learned.

Advanced settings

Click Advanced settings to show the properties so you can adjust the behavior of the auto-learning algorithm. The design behavior of the auto-learning algorithm for the analyzer are directly analogous to those for the auto-learning of URLs and you can adjust these settings accordingly.
