Tivoli gateway can hang (pretty typical if it works with Tivoli Gateway Proxy) and that critically affect the TMR functionality.

An unreliable gateway with 1,000 endpoints logged into it affects the ability of the administrator to effectively manage those 1,000 machines. In an environment of 10,000 endpoints, that represents a 10% failure rate. The same is true for endpoint manager. An unreliable endpoint manager has an even more crippling effect, because management of the aforementioned 10,000 endpoints becomes frustrating if the endpoint manager process (ep_mgr) dies unexpectedly during critical operations.

1. Gateway has logs and it should be analyzed first. 

2. Run commands to

wepstatus -a | grep -i unreach

errpt

ps -ef |grep -i tws

Configuration Options for the Tivoli Enterprise Console V3.9 Gateway

Support Technical Exchange (STE) Presentation made by Jerry Swan on 2005_10_18 to show configuration options for the ITEC V3.9 Gateway

Re: Gateway down, please help, it's kindda urgent
Posted: Jan 30, 2007 09:06:50 AM in response to: shadow in response to: shadow's post

What program was blocked?

Could it be that you are having a port conflict? Tivoli uses ports 94 (oserv),9494 (gateway) and 9495 (endpoint). If oserv is down and you do a netstat -a, is there anything using these ports?

Any chance you/someone has put SP1 for Windows 2003 on the systems?

I know we have already talked about this, but the error still suggests ip address.

Could you go to your TMR and execute odadmin odlist.

Verify that the address the TMR thinks is correct.

Then run ping to the name and address.

You could also try nslookup (but should return the same as ping)

o_rpc

The number of OS File Descriptors limits the number of all other RPC Threads in Tivoli. Main threads within Tivoli are the oserv_rpc threads which control the limit of the epmgr rpc_treads and gw rpc treads.

eps
number of endpoints=217

This setting is used for the consideration in the calculations of all the other settings

jq -- jobq threads
If gateway_method_in() determines that the method call is a “jobq” method, it calls new_job(), which places the method on a job queue and closes the gateway RPC thread and also the oserv thread is also closed.
This process is very fast, which means that jobq methods have a minimal impact on the RPC thread limit.
The method request (the job) on the job queue is processed by pthreads, of which there are max_concurrent_jobs in number. The pthreads work on jobs placed on the queue.
The default number of pthreads available to service the job queue is 200, the default value of max_concurrent_jobs.
If the gateway has an insufficient number of pthreads (max_concurrent_jobs) the following operations are affected:
Downcalls to endpoints.
Excessive isolation logins. Upcalls and logins from endpoints.
Delayed distributions. The rpt method waits for a free pthread to spawn.


lq -- login queue threads

g_rpc -- gw rpc threads

Because a gateway RPC Thread uses an oserv RPC thread, care must be taken to keep the ‘oserv’ functional.
A good rule of thumb to adopt is:
rpc_maxthreads (of gateway) <= 60% of rpc_max_threads (of oserv)
Prior to Framework FP2, this parameter was not available.
Recall that the oserv RPC threads is a global parameter and this in itself is governed by the number of OS File Descriptors.


md2 -- Mdist2 sessions[total of high+medium+low]

net_load=KB_per_second. Specifies the maximum amount of network bandwidth (in kilobytes per second) that the repeater is allowed to use. If slow_link is set to TRUE, the network bandwidth is measured in bytes per second. This allocation is shared among all active distributions. This option is used with target_netload.

Tivoli Field Guide - The Tivoli Management Enterprise Endpoint Gateway: A Technical Look at the Internals

April 4, 2007

An unstable endpoint manager or endpoint gateway can have a catastrophic ripple effect on the reliability and effectiveness of the Tivoli Management Environment. This is primarily because of the number of management units that are affected by their instability. An unreliable gateway with 1,000 endpoints logged into it affects the ability of the administrator to effectively manage those 1,000 machines. In an environment of 10,000 endpoints, that represents a 10% failure rate, which is unacceptable...

Description

The wgateway command starts or stops a gateway, lists or modifies the properties of a gateway, controls access to the gateway HTTP server, or defines logging characteristics. Without options, the wgateway command lists the object identifier, label, and status of all gateways in the local Tivoli region. The status value for a gateway can be one of the following:

   b    The gateway is booting.

   d    The gateway is down and not running.

   D    A communication error occurred. The object dispatch is
        down.  However, the entire computer could be down.

   u    The gateway is up and running.
To start, stop, or restart (stop and start) a gateway, use wgateway(1) the start, stop and restart options, respectively.

Note: For NetWare gateways, the start and stop options cannot be used. For the start option, use the oservrun command. For the stop option, use the oservend command. Both of these commands must be run from the NetWare console.

To list all the properties of a specific gateway, use the describe option. If you need to change any of these properties, you can modify many of these properties using the set option and its suboptions.

For endpoint method logging, use the get method_trace_time option to return the value of the set resolution time and the set method_trace_time option to change the resolution time. To return the status of logging, use the logstatus option. To change the amount of time between status checks, use the set logstatus_interval option.

To ensure that access is secure to the gateway HTTP server, you can enable or disable the server by using the set httpd option. After the gateway HTTP server is enabled, anyone connecting to this service is prompted to authenticate. No one can access the gateway Web pages until the user names and passwords are created. After setting the user names and passwords, access to the gateway pages for those users is allowed. User names and passwords must be predefined for each user using the set httpd_passwd option. Each administrator with the admin authorization role can define his or her user name and password.

Note: The user name and password can be any value. They do not default to the system administrator user name or password. They do not default to the Tivoli administrator user name and password.

For NetWare gateways, you need at least one gateway proxy. The gateway proxy runs endpoint policy scripts. Any managed node can be a gateway proxy. The following options can be used to manage gateway proxies:

   add_gatewayproxy
        To add a managed node to the gateway proxy list.

   get_gatewayproxies
        To list the gateway proxies for a specific
        NetWare gateway.

   remove_gatewayproxy
        To remove a managed node from the gateway proxy
        list.

   reset_gatewayproxies
        To remove all entries from the gateway proxy
        list.
For NetWare gateways and other gateways that support the IPX/SPX protocols, you can add IPX/SPX support after creating the gateway. To add IPX/SPX support, use the add_protocol IPX option and use the set protocols IPX option to set the protocols for the gateway. If you no longer need IPX/SPX support, use the rm_protocol IPX option. If you do not want to use the standard TCP/IP or IPX/SPX listening ports, use the set_tcp_port to set the TCP/IP listening port or set_ipx_port option to set the IPX and SPX listening ports.

Because each gateway maintains a database file and has a method cache, it could become unsynchronized with the one on the Tivoli server or become corrupted. To synchronize the method caches between these computers, use the dbcheck option. To check the consistency of the endpoint activity database (the epact.bdb file), use the epact_dbcheck option.

Options

   add_gatewayproxy node_name
        For NetWare gateways only. Adds a managed node
        as an entry to the gateway proxy list.

   add_protocol protocol
        Adds a supported protocol for the specified
        gateway. Supported protocols are TCPIP (the
        default) and IPX.

        with the method cache on the Tivoli server.

   describe    Lists the properties of the specified gateway.

   epact_dbcheck
        Checks the consistency of the endpoint activity
        database (the epact.bdb file).

         the gateway for this change to take effect.        

        ifs_ignore_remove IP_address
         Removes the specified IP address from
         the list of excluded gateway aliases.

   set option value
        Sets the value for the specified option. You can
        specify the following options and values with
        the set option:

        continue_eplogin_onerror {0 | 1 | 2 | 3}
         Specifies whether the gateway allows
         exeptions from the boot_method method,
         the login_policy script, or both, during
         normal login attempts by endpoints.
         Specify one of the following values:

      0   The gateway aborts the login
          attempt if receives an exception
          from the boot_method method or
          login_policy script. This is the
          default value.

      1   The gateway allows exceptions
          from the login_policy script.

      2   The gateway allows exceptions
          from the boot_method method.

      3   The gateway allows exceptions
          from both the login_policy
          script and the boot_method
          method.

        debug_level level
         Sets the level of message information
         that is logged by the gateway.  The
         levels are as follows:

      0   Errors. This is the default and
          recommended level.

      1   Errors and warnings.

      2   Harmless exceptions.

      3   Verbose communication
          information.

      5   Verbose boot, database check,
          and endpoint login information.

 
      6   Verbose upcall, downcall, and
          repeater information.

      7   Verbose job scheduler
          information.

      8   Verbose gateway cache
          information.

          Note: Level 4 does not exist.

        epcheck_atboot {TRUE | FALSE}
         Specifies whether the gateway checks the
         status of all endpoints assigned to it
         each time the gateway starts up. The
         default is TRUE.

        epcheck_interval seconds
         Specifies the interval, in seconds, at
         which the gateway checks the status of
         endpoints that it communicates with. The
         range for this option is 300 to 14400
         seconds. The default is 3600 seconds (1
         hour).

        epupgrade_by_gateway [TRUE | FALSE]
         Upgrades any endpoint assigned to this
         gateway during the normal login process.
         If the endpoint is already at the most
         current level, no upgrade is performed.
         The default for all gateways, except
         NetWare gateways, is FALSE. For NetWare
         gateways, this value is set to TRUE. A
         NetWare gateway cannot run a
         login_policy script without first
         defining a proxy managed node.

Note: The epupgrade_by_gateway option works only if the upgrade_mode parameter in the upgrade.cntl file is set to auto. The upgrade.cntl file is located in the $BINDIR/lcf_bundle.41100/upgrade directory on the gateway.

        httpd [TRUE | FALSE]
         Enables and disables the gateway HTTP
         server. The option requires only the
         admin role. TRUE enables the gateway
         HTTP server; FALSE disables the gateway
         HTTP server. The default is FALSE.

        httpd_passwd user_name:password
         Sets the user name and password required
         to access the gateway HTTP server to
         view information about endpoints. This
         option requires only the admin role.

        ifs_ignore IP_address
         Specifies an IP address that is excluded
         from the gateway aliases list when the
         gateway boots up. Use this option on
         multi-NIC gateways to specify network
         cards that you do not want endpoints to
         connect to.  You can specify only one IP
         address each time you run this command.
         However, you can run this command
         multiple times to exclude multiple IP
         addresses.

        log_dir directory
         Specifies the directory on the local
         system for the gatelog and all
         gatelog.timestamp log files.

        log_size size_in_bytes
         Specifies the reference size of the
         gatelog file, in bytes.  When the
         referenced size is reached, the gatelog
         file is copied to a gatelog.timestamp
         file and a new gatelog file is created.
         The maximum file size is 10485760 bytes
         (10 megabytes), and the default file
         size is 1048576 bytes (1 megabyte).

        logstatus_interval seconds
         Sets the amount of time in seconds
         between status checks. If set to zero,
         logging is disabled. The range for this
         option is zero to 3600 seconds. The
         default is 3600 seconds (1 hour).

        max_concurrent_jobs count
         Specifies the maximum number of jobs
         that run concurrently. The range for
         this option is 200 to 2000 jobs. The
         default is 200.

        max_concurrent_logins count
         Specifies the maximum number of
         endpoints that can log in at the same
         time. The range for this option is 100
         to 500 endpoints. The default is 100.

        mcache_bwcontrol [TRUE | FALSE]
         Specifies whether to share bandwidth
         control between the MDist 2 service and
         the method cache download. The default
         is FALSE.

        method_trace_time seconds
         Specifies the resolution time in seconds
         for tracing endpoint activity (last
         login time, last logout time, last
         migration time, last downcall time, last
         upcall time, and last endpoint check
         time).  When this value is set to zero,
         endpoint tracing information is not
         written to the epact.bdb database but is
         stored in memory on the gateway. The
         default is 3600 seconds (1 hour).

        protocols protocol_list
         Sets a supported protocol for the
         specified gateway. TCP/IP is the
         default.

        rpc_maxthreads count
         Specifies the maximum number of threads.
         The range for this option is 250 to 2500
         threads. The default is 250.

        send_userlink_file {TRUE | FALSE}
         Specifies whether the gateway sends the
         userlink.htm file to an endpoint. When
         this value is set to TRUE, the gateway
         sends the userlink.htm file to an
         endpoint after the endpoint completes
         its first successful normal login. The
         userlink.htm file is stored on the
         endpoint in the /etc/Tivoli directory on
         UNIX systems and the c:/etc/Tivoli
         directory on Windows systems. When this
         value is set to FALSE, the gateway does
         not send the userlink.htm file to an
         endpoint. The default is TRUE. This
         option is designed for new endpoints.
         The userlink.htm file might already be
         installed on existing endpoints.

        session_timeout seconds
         Specifies the amount of time in seconds
         that a gateway waits for a response from
         an endpoint after sending a downcall.
         The default is 300 seconds (5 minutes).


        wol_broadcast {TRUE | FALSE}
         Specifies whether the gateway broadcasts
         a Wake on Lan packet to the subnet of
         the endpoint. In broadcast mode, if the
         IP address of an endpoint is unknown,
         the gateway can wake up the endpoint by
         sending a Wake on Lan packet to the
         subnet of the endpoint. The default is
         TRUE.

        wol_direct {TRUE | FALSE}
         Specifies whether the gateway sends a
         Wake on Lan packet directly to the IP
         address of the endpoint. The default is
         FALSE.

   set_ipx_port port
        Specifies the port on which the gateway listens
        for IPX packets. When an IPX port is assigned,
        an SPX port is assigned. The SPX port is always
        the assigned IPX port number less one. The
        default IPX port number is 9494, and the default
        SPX port is 9493.

   set_nbi_name name
        Specifies the NetBIOS name.

   set_nbi_mode mode
        Specifies the NetBIOS name resolution mode.

   set_nbi_port port
        Specifies the port on which the gateway listens
        for NetBIOS packets.

   set_protocols protocol_list
        Sets the supported protocol for the specified
        gateway. Supported protocols are TCPIP (the
        default) and IPX.

   set_sna_address address
        Specifies the SNA address.

   set_sna_mode mode
        Defines the SNA mode.

   set_sna_port port
        Specifies the port on which the gateway listens
        for SNA packets.

   set_tcp_port port
        Specifies the port on which the gateway listens
        for TCP/IP packets.  The default port number is 9494.       

   start       Starts the specified gateway. For NetWare, use
        the oservrun command to start the object
        dispatcher from the NetWare console.

   stop       Stops the specified gateway. For NetWare, use
        the oservend command to stop the object
        dispatcher from the NetWare console.

   gateway_name
        Identifies the name of the gateway.
Authorization admin or senior
