Ebam/Configuring the Knowledge Base
Adding a new service
In the eBAM vision, a service can be seen as the definition of a sequence of steps in a process, in which each step generates a message. To add a new Service to the ebam knowledge base, you can use the configuration wizard in eBAM Designer. Open the eclipse Helios released with eBAM Designer, and in the main Eclipse menu go to Ebam --> Service Definition.
The start/end date are only information, in this moment there are not any influence on eBAM runtime.
Adding a new message
Logs can be parsed using the definition of messages and their relevant data. To add a new Message to the ebam knowledge base, you can use the configuration wizard in eBAM Designer. Open the eclipse Helios released with eBAM Designer , and in the main Eclipse menu go to Ebam --> Message Definition. The message is linked to the service, and he has to be associated to the definition of the engine that process it.
This wizard is composed by 3 TAB: Message Detail, engine and Relevant Data.
- Detail: you havo to assign some data and sercive
- Engine: you have to select the Engine that will manage this type of messages
- Relevant Data: the relevant data that you want to extract from message
Adding new relevant data of a message
