MTS Configuration Syntax

The MTS Configuration is used for monitoring the ACI Money Transfer System (MTS).

Syntax Elements

ADD AREA

One or more ADD AREA statements can be added to define one or more MTS 'Areas' running on the same AIX logical partition. This allows support of multi-tenanted MTS environments.

<area-name>

User-defined 'Area' name.

The 'Area' name can only contain the characters a-z, A-Z, 0-9, - or _, a single blank space between words and cannot begin or end with - or _. No other special characters should be used and any spaces at the beginning or end of a name will be ignored.

 <jasi-port>

Java Application Server Interface (JASI) port number associated with the 'Area'.

ADD VIEW

A 'View' represents a collection of one or more MTS 'Functions. A View generally corresponds to a given Display that addresses a particular business need. Multiple Views are permitted in an MTS configuration and multiple Views may also be present in a single Display.

<area-name>

Name of the 'Area' that this 'View' belongs to. This must correspond to an ADD AREA entry.

<view-name>

User-defined 'View' name.

The 'View' name can only contain the characters a-z, A-Z, 0-9, - or _, a single blank space between words and cannot begin or end with - or _. No other special characters should be used and any spaces at the beginning or end of a name will be ignored. The maximum length of a 'View' name is 50 characters.

View names, 'Proof1', 'Proof1_', 'Proof2', 'Proof3', 'Proof4', 'MTS Central' and 'Queue Central' are reserved for use in pre-packaged Displays.

ADD FUNCTION

This statement is used to define a Function group inside a View. A Function generally corresponds to a particular business process that needs to be monitored. The same Function name can exist across multiple Views and Views are typically made up of multiple Functions.

<area-name>

Name of the 'Area' that this 'Function' belongs to. This must correspond to an ADD AREA entry.

<view-name>

Name of the 'View' that this 'Function' belongs to. This must correspond to an ADD VIEW entry.

 <function-name>

User-defined 'Function' name.

The 'Function' name can only contain the characters a-z, A-Z, 0-9, - or _, a single blank space between words and cannot begin or end with - or _. No other special characters should be used and any spaces at the beginning or end of a name will be ignored. The recommended length of a 'View' name is a maximum of 25 characters.

priority=<order-number>

This number defines the order in which this function will be shown within the view on a Display. A single view should not have conflicting priorities, but are not required to be chronically ordered within the configuration, though as best practice they should ordered as such.

 type={InOut|Combined}

Can only be 'InOut' or 'Combined'.

'InOut' indicates that separate counters will be presented for this function for both incoming and outgoing payments.

ADD QUEUES

This statement is used to add a list of queues associated under a Function.

<area-name>

Name of the 'Area' that this 'Queue' belongs to. This must correspond to an ADD AREA entry.

<view-name>

Name of the 'View' that this 'Queue' belongs to. This must correspond to an ADD VIEW entry.

 <function-name>

Name of the 'Function that this 'Queue' belongs to. This must correspond to an ADD FUNCTION entry.

 type={In|Out}

If the Function 'type' has been set to 'InOut' then this field must be either 'In' or 'Out'. If the Function type is 'Combined', then the type must not be specified. If the function type is 'InOut' and the type is not specified, the type defaults to 'In'.

<queue-names>

Comma separated list of queue names.

ADD COUNTERS

This statement is used to add a list of counters to a Function. Only one ADD COUNTERS statement is permitted per Function.

<area-name>

Name of the 'Area' that this 'Counter' belongs to. This must correspond to an ADD AREA entry.

<view-name>

Name of the 'View' that this 'Counter' belongs to. This must correspond to an ADD VIEW entry.

<function-name>,

Name of the 'Function that this 'Counter' belongs to. This must correspond to an ADD FUNCTION entry.

<counter-names>

Comma separated list of counter names.
