The PEM client can display status information about one or more Failover Manager clusters on the Streaming Replication dashboard (see Figure 14.12).Before configuring PEM to monitor a Failover Manager cluster, you must install and configure Streaming Replication and Failover Manager on the cluster. For more information about installing and configuring Streaming Replication and Failover Manager, please see the EnterpriseDB Failover Manager Guide, available at:To configure PEM to monitor a Failover Manager cluster, open the PEM client, log on to the PEM Server, and create a server definition for the master node of the Failover Manager cluster. In addition to using the tabs on the New Server Registration dialog to specify general connection properties for the master node, use fields on the Advanced tab to specify information about the Failover Manager cluster:
• Use the EFM Cluster Name field to specify the name of the Failover Manager cluster. The cluster name is the prefix of the name of the cluster properties file. For example, if your cluster properties file is named efm.properties, your cluster name is efm.
• Use the EFM Installation Path field to specify the location of the Failover Manager binary file. By default, the Failover Manager binary file is installed in /usr/efm-2.0/bin.After saving the server definition, the master node will be included in the list of servers under the PEM Server Directory in the PEM client Object browser tree, and will be displayed on the Global Overview dashboard. To view the Streaming Replication Analysis dashboard and the status of the Failover Manager cluster, right click on the name of the master node in the Object browser tree control and navigate through the Dashboards menu to select Streaming Replication Analysis.
