Setting the length of Foglight sessions

You can configure the length of inactive Foglight browser interface sessions by changing the value of the parameter server.console.session.timeout. This parameter controls the length of time that Foglight waits before automatically logging you out of an idle browser interface session.

1
Stop the Management Server. Open the file <foglight_home>\config\server.config on the Management Server machine. Set the parameter server.console.session.timeout to the desired value in minutes.
The default value is 60 minutes. If you set the value to less than or equal to 0, or greater than 30000000, Foglight never logs you out of the browser interface, regardless of how long the session has been inactive.
2
Save the server.config file.

HP patch checking tool

If your external database is installed on an HP-UX server, HP provides a tool for ensuring that all the patches required to run Java® on HP-UX are installed.

The tool is available from:

http://www.hp.com/go/java

To use the tool, issue the following command:

Uninstalling Foglight

You can uninstall Foglight using the uninstaller utility for your platform. The uninstaller can be found in <foglight_home>\UninstallerData.

The default mode for the uninstaller is the graphical user interface (GUI) mode. However, in cases where a graphics display is not available, the Foglight installer can be run from the command line by using the silent uninstaller.

2
Navigate to the UninstallerData directory of your Foglight installation and run the Uninstall Foglight executable.
To launch the uninstaller in silent mode, run the Uninstall Foglight executable using the following command:
”Uninstall Foglight.exe” -i silent -f installvariables.properties
3
After uninstallation, you can safely delete the <foglight_home> directory. It is recommended that you do so, since the uninstaller does not remove certain directories within <foglight_home>.
