By starting the Event Processing Manager (EPM), you begin traffic flow collection.


Before starting EPM, use the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to discover the flow exporters, which are managed as routers, into the M&R platform.


  1. To start EPM, type /opt/APG/bin/ service start event-processing-manager <instance_name>
  2. To verify EPM has started, check the processing-0­0.log file in /opt/APG/Event­Processing/Event-Processing-Manager/<instance_name>.
    This message appears at the end of the log:
    Processing manager started!
