CA Spectrum

You can install the CA Spectrum integration to enable Moogsoft AIOps to collect event data from one or more CA Spectrum systems.

See the CA Spectrum documentation for details on CA Spectrum components.

Before You Begin

The CA Spectrum integration has been validated with CA Spectrum OneClick v10.2. Before you start to set up your integration, ensure you have met the following requirements for each CA Spectrum server:

  • You have the URL for your CA Spectrum server.
  • The port for your CA Spectrum server is open and accessible from the Moogsoft AIOps server.
  • You have credentials to connect to the CA Spectrum server.
  • You have set up alarms in CA Spectrum.
  • Your CA Spectrum server is able to accept HTTP/HTTPS requests.

Note

The CA Spectrum API does not supply events with status 'clear' for collection by Moogsoft AIOps.

Optionally you can provide the following:

  • A limit for the number of events that Moogsoft AIOps can fetch. Defaults to 1000.
  • Request interval and retry interval times in seconds. Defaults to 60.
  • The length of time to wait for a request to complete before timing out. Defaults to 120.

Configure the CA Spectrum Integration

Configure the CA Spectrum integration in Moogsoft AIOps as follows:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.
  2. Click CA Spectrum in the Monitoring section.
  3. Follow the instructions to create an integration name.

See Configure the CA Spectrum LAM for advanced configuration information.

CA Spectrum Configuration

You do not need to perform any integration-specific steps on your CA Spectrum systems. After you configure the integration, it polls your CA Spectrum servers at regular intervals to collect event data (every 60 seconds by default).

If the integration fails to connect to one or more CA Spectrum sources, Moogsoft AIOps creates an alert and writes the details to the process log. Refer to the Logging details for LAMs and integrations for more information.
