vRealize Hyperic can track configuration changes in the PostgreSQL plug-in.

The org.hyperic.hq.product.FileChangeTrackPlugin support class that the PostgreSQL plug-in uses for configuration tracking enables detailed change tracking of the change type (add, delete, modify, or rename) and the actual changes in text files. For information about the new support class, see FileChangeTrackPlugin.

For PostgreSQL, the default value of the Configuration Files field, which specifies which files to track is:

data;false;.*\.conf;,*PGDATA*;false;.*\.conf;,data;false;.*\.conf;

When configuration tracking is enabled, this filter causes vRealize Hyperic to track:

  • Any files with a .conf extension in the PostgresqlHome/data directory.

  • Any files with a .conf extension in the configuration directory specified by the PGDATA environment variable .

  • Any files with a .conf extension in the PostgresqlHome/data directory .
