Integration with BMC Helix Operations Management

Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector can easily integrate with BMC Helix Operations Management to expose hardware health and performance metrics into Helix Dashboards. This is achieved by using the standard Prometheus Remote Write protocol, which can be ingested by the BMC Helix platform.

Configuration

Edit the exporters section of the config/otel-config.yaml configuration file as in the below example:

  prometheusremotewrite/helix:
    endpoint: https://<your-helix-env>.onbmc.com/metrics-gateway-service/api/v1.0/prometheus
    headers:
      Authorization: Bearer <apiToken>

where:

  • <your-helix-env> is the host name of your BMC Helix environment, at onbmc.com
  • <apiToken> is the API Key of your BMC Helix environment

To get your API Key, connect to BMC Helix Operations Management, go to the Administration > Repository page, and click on the Copy API Key button.

Then, make sure to declare the exporter in the pipeline section of config/otel-config.yaml:

service:
  extensions: [health_check]
  pipelines:
    metrics:
      receivers: [prometheus_exec/hws-exporter,prometheus/internal]
      processors: [memory_limiter,batch,metricstransform]
      exporters: [prometheusremotewrite/helix] # Your helix config must be listed here
No results.
