By default, the Topology Split Manager does not send the IP Availability Managers a list of devices that are eligible for monitoring at a one-minute interval.

For the Topology Split Manager to learn which devices are eligible for polling at a one-minute interval, you must add them to the override-polling-system.txt file.

The syntax for a device entry is:


For example:

To add device entries to the override-polling-system.txt:

  1. Go to the TSM_BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory and enter the following command to open the override-polling-system.txt file:

                   sm_edit conf/custom/override-polling-system.txt
  2. Add your device entries, one entry per line.

  3. Save and close the file.

    The modified version of the override-polling-system.txt file is saved to the TSM_BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/custom directory.

    When topology split is invoked, and assuming that topology split is enabled and the TSM hook script is enabled, as explained in “Enabling topology split” on page 65 and “Enabling the TSM hook script” on page 69, the Topology Split Manager loads the override-polling-system.txt file and sends the IP Availability Managers a list of devices that should be polled at a one-minute interval.
