Massive Operations

Introduction

The Massive Operations feature allows you to conduct actions related to agents, modules, users, alerts and policies in a massive way. In recent years, the importance of massive operations have grown in large-volume environments. This functionality has been designed to facilitate the administrators work in situations in which they have to deal with systems which contain a very large amount of components.

You're able to access the massive operations features by clicking on 'Administration' and 'Massive Operations' as shown below.

A piece of advice:
The PHP language requires an appropriate configuration of the timeout parameters. In order to do this, please open the configuration file called 'php.ini' by entering the following command:

sudo vi /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini;

Please modify the timeout parameters as shown below.

max_execution_time = 0 
max_input_time = -1

Massive Operations - Agents

It's possible to edit or delete agents by using the 'massive operations edition' feature.

Within the 'massive agents edition' subsection, it's possible to filter by 'destination', 'agents' and 'group' and to change general parameters like 'parent agent', 'group', 'execution interval' or 'operating system'.

Within the 'massive agents deletion' subsection, it's possible to filter by group.

Massive Operations - Modules

There are three massive operations for the modules:

  • Deletion
  • Copying one module from one agent to another
  • Edition

The 'massive modules deletion' feature allows you to select the modules to edit in the two following modes:

  • Modules Selection:

If you've picked 'selection by module', you're going to be able to filter by the type of module, to select modules of this type and select the agents associated to these modules at the end.

  • Agents Selection:

If you've picked 'selection by agent', you're going to be able to filter by groups, to select the agents of this group and to select the modules of the selected agents at the end.

The 'massive modules edition' feature allows the editing by module or by agent. If you've conducted a search by module, it's possible to filter by the module's type or by modules and agents. Subsequently, it's possible to edit the module's general parameters like 'warning value', 'execution interval', 'post processing', etc.

The 'massive modules edition' feature allows you to select the modules to edit in the two following modes:

  • Modules Selection:

If you've picked 'selection by module', you're going to be able to filter by the type of module, to select modules of this type and select the agents associated to these modules at the end.

  • Agents Selection:

If you've picked 'selection by agent', you're going to be able to filter by group, to select agents of this group and to select the modules of the selected agents at the end.

Subsequently, you're going to be able to edit the general parameters as well as the 'warning' and 'critical' values, the execution interval, post processing, etc.

The 'massive modules copy' feature allows you to copy one module's information to another agent's modules. In order to do this, it's required to pick a group and a source agent. Subsequently, you're able to pick the modules and the destination agent by using the 'filtering by group' feature.

Massive Operations - Users

It's also possible to add or to delete profiles which are associated to users. This feature can render the user's management a lot easier, because they can be managed massively.

In order to add new profiles, you're able to pick profiles, groups and users.

In order to delete profiles, you're required to fill out the profile, group and user information.

Massive Operations - Alerts

Within this section it's possible to add, delete or add actions, enable and disable alerts or put them into stand-by mode. All these operations can be performed massively.

In order to add new alerts, it's possible to filter by group. To do so, it's required to select an agent, module and the template to add.

In order to delete alerts, it's possible to filter by group. To do so, it's also required to select a template, group, agent and modules.



Massive operations12.png



In order to add actions to alerts, it's possible to filter by group and to select agents, templates and to select the action you intend to add.



Massive operations13.png



In order to delete alert actions, it's possible to filter by group and to select agents, templates and the actions you intend to delete.



Massive operations14.png



In order to enable or disable alerts, it's possible to filter by group. To do so, it's required to fill out the information about agents, templates and two columns about enabling and disabling the alert options.



Massive operations15.png



In order to assign a stand-by state to an alert, it's possible to filter by group. In order to do so, you're required to fill out the information about the agents, templates and the alerts you're intending to put into a stand-by state.

Massive Operations - Policies

In this section, it's possible to perform two actions: Adding and deleting alerts within policies.

In order to add alerts, you're required to fill out the destination policy, the template to add, to provide a regular expression to match the agents and modules of the policy.



Massive operations17.png



In order to delete policy alerts, it's required to fill out the destiny policy, the template to delete, to provide a regular expression to match the policy agents and its corresponding modules.
