Question:

Where I can find the unique Data Collector id DCM_ID?

Environment:

Answer:

User has two ways to find the Data Collector id DCM_ID

 

The first method is to login to Performance Center as Administrator, and go to Administration, System Status.

 

Select Data Collectors from the menu.

 

Find the Data Collector component from righthand side’s ID column, for example:

 

IMDC2RH65C1:22a4e9a7-8aa4-4db1-9f45-3b0b2b86eb4f

 

The format of the Data Collector component ID is HOSTNAME:UUID (universally unique identifiers). 

 

The second method is to use the web browser to find it.

 

User a web browser and type in this link:

 

http://DA_hostname:port/rest/dcms

 

DA_hostname:port

Specifies the Data Aggregator host name and the port number.

Default port: 8581

 

For example:

http://imda2rh65.ca.com:8581/rest/dcms

User can find the <DataCollectionMgrInfo> section whose HostName and IPAddress match the one you want to see. 

In this section, user can find the <DcmID>

 

See example below:

<DataCollectionMgrInfo version="1.0.0">

<ID>713</ID>

<DcmID>IMDC2RH65C1:22a4e9a7-8aa4-4db1-9f45-3b0b2b86eb4f</DcmID>
