Tools are programs that can be invoked automatically by the Global Manager or through the Global Console by an operator. The tools should be monitored using the following VMware Smart Assurance utility to ensure that they do not adversely affect performance:
tdmctl -s <server_name> invoke ICS_ActionManager::ICS-ActionManager dumpStatistics <string> filenames
Output of the Dumpstatistics option for tools illustrates the output of the Dumpstatistics option for tools.
The tools monitored by the utility include all synchronous tools (server and automatic). Asynchronous tools (client tools), which are client tools invoked by users from the Global Console, are not monitored using this utility.
