The delivered IBM TS3500 Insight Pack file is comprised of three archive files:

  • Insight Pack: TS3500InsightPack_v1.1.0.0.zip
  • Will be loaded inside the Log Analysis tool.

  • TS3500 Log Forwarder: ts3500forwarder-1.1.0.0.tar.gz
  • Can be installed on same host as the Log Analysis tool, or on a remote host.

  • Sample searches: ts3500_searches.tar.gz

Additional information

For the TS3500 Insight Pack to operate correctly within IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis two components are required to be installed:

  • The TS3500 Insight Pack
  • The TS3500 Forwarder

The TS3500 forwarder is the component that will collect the necessary log information from the TS3500 Tape Library appliance. It uses the TS3500CLI.jar routine to parse then forward the data to Log Analysis using the routines provided in the T3500 Insight Pack.
