Export and Import

This section explains how to export the metadata of the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool server for the current user. It can be helpful for backup purposes or to re-create the same metadata in another server. This metadata includes both the definition of the elements in the tree area and the configuration.

Export

To export the user information, you must select first which elements in the tree area will be saved. The tree area supports a multiple selection mode that is controlled by the check box on the top. If this check box is disabled image0, you will export all the elements in the tree area. Click on it to enable it image1 and activate the multiple selection mode so you can select only those elements that you want to export. Take into account that to export a node you must select all its parents until the node image2.

Once you have selected which nodes to export, click on image4 to show the export dialog. Select the Include configuration to export the user configuration and then click Export. The Tool will generate a file with all the user metadata that you have selected.

Import

To import the metadata of a user, click on import, choose a file from your local machine and then click Upload. The import dialog will appear and show all the information that is available in the file to import.

You can click on every node to check its definition or discard it from the import. If there is a diagnostic that cannot be imported with the current configuration, it will appear as diagnostic-warning. To check which is the underlying problem, just click on the node. In addition, you can edit the diagnostic definition, changing the directory where the logs reside or the server, in case the directory contains logs from more than one server.

Note

Remember that the path of a diagnostic points to a directory in the machine where the Diagnostic & Monitoring server is running.

When you have finished configuring the import, click Import.

If the import includes some diagnostics, they have to be loaded in the system one by one, which may be a long process. If that is the case, a new dialog will open with information about the progress of the import.
