HP Event Monitoring Service

I need to have the same monitors setup across dozens of HP servers.
Under SAM GUI, it's the Resource Management / Event Monitoring Service component that folks  have been using here.

I'm not a GUI fan and prefer command line / file updates do get work done.

Instead of using SAM,  is there a file that I can update to contain the needed info that I can then roll out to each server? this will save me an awful lot of time.

Thanks

I belive that you need to make sure all you HP-UX boxes have EMS (Event Monitoring Service) installed, before you can copy the EMS configuration files from a pre-configured HP-UX box.

Here are the details about the EMS dirs/files:
       The EMS dirs/files are installed in /etc/opt/resmon and /opt/resmon.
       Configuraration file:  /etc/opt/resmon/config  - The file that sets the restart interval for monitor persistence.
        /etc/opt/resmon/dictionary  - A directory that contains resource dictionaries for the various
      monitors. The disk monitor resources are listed in diskmond.dict and
      the cluster, network, and system resource monitors are in the
      mibmond.dict. If you were writing your own monitor, the dictionary
      would go in this directory.

       /etc/opt/resmon/lbin   -  where all the monitor daemons live
      p_client restarts - any failed monitors based on information in the
      config file.

      /etc/opt/resmon/log  - log files used by EMS

      /opt/resmon/resls - command that lists the latest polled status of the specified
      resource on a specified system.

      man ems
to learn more details.

also have a look at the following page:
http://wiki-ux.info/wiki/How_to_edit_EMS_config_files

You can do a test in one new machine, make sure you perform a full backup before copy the file accross.
