Statistics Server Parameters
Set general parameters to configure machine information, time display options, and data storage locations.
ActionEvent 
Enter true to enable the Event action.
 
DateString 
Enter false to display time in Epoch time, or true to display time in YYYY-MM-DD format.
 
EventClients 
Specify the IP addresses or host names of machines that are permitted to send events to the Statistics server. Separate multiple values with a comma.
 
EventField 
Specify the field in the XML event that contains the name of the IDOL server. Use this parameter if you are using multiple IDOL servers.
 
EventPort 
Specify the number of the port that receives events.
 
EventThreads 
Specify the number of event threads.
 
ExternalClock 
The ExternalClock parameter determines when Statistics server begins recording events. If you do not use this parameter, the server begins recording events as soon as it is started. If you set a value (in seconds), the Statistics server uses that value as a timestamp for each statistic. The first time the server receives an XML event with a <timestamp> value equal to or greater than the ExternalClock value, it begins recording statistics from that point onward. Each subsequent event must have a <timestamp> value greater than the previous one to be recorded.
 
NOTE To use ExternalClock, configure a <timestamp> field in the XML events. For more information, see Create XML Events.
 
History 
Specify the directory in which statistical results are stored.
 
IDOLName 
Specify the name of the IDOL server from which the statistic is received. Set this parameter if you are using multiple IDOL servers.
 
NOTE To use IDOLName, you must configure a field that contains the name of the IDOL server in the XML events. For more information, see Create XML Events.
 
[MyStatistic]
Main 
Specify the directory in which database files are stored. The database files contain information about the fields defined in the Statistics server configuration file.
 
Number 
Specify the number of IDOL servers from which to measure statistics. Set this parameter if you are using multiple IDOL servers.
 
Port 
Specify the Statistics server ACI port number.
 
SafeModeActivated 
Enter true to activate safe mode. See Preserve Data during Service Interruptions.
 
StatLifetime
Specify how long you want to keep statistical data stored on disk. After the given time period has elapsed, all statistical data is removed. You can specify the period that you want to elapse before deleting statistical data using the following format:
<number><timeUnit>
where <number> is the number of time units that you want to elapse, and <timeUnit> is the time unit to specify. The following units are available:
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
If you do not specify a timeUnit, IDOL reads the specified number as seconds. You can also enter -1 for an unlimited time (no data is deleted).
 
TemplateDirectory 
Specify the directory containing an XSL template file, used for reporting.
 
Threads 
Specify the number of ACI threads.
 
XSLTemplates 
Enter true to enable XSL reporting.
