SAS Environment Manager Plugins

Plugins enable agents to discover and monitor resources in a SAS environment. Each plugin is associated with a set of specific resources, and provides the agents with the instructions needed to recognize the resource during auto-discovery and to monitor and collect metrics for the resource.

Although open-source plugins are available for VMware Hyperic, these plugins are not supported by SAS Environment Manager. The plugins delivered for SAS Environment Manager have been changed by SAS and are NOT the same as the plugins provided through third-party sources. You should use only plugins provided by SAS with SAS Environment Manager.

If you delete any of these plugins using the SAS Environment Manager Plugin Manager utility, you can retrieve them from the SAS deployment on your system by following these instructions (substitute the correct release where you see 2.x):

  1. Navigate to SAS-installation-directory/SASEnvironmentManagerAgent/2.x. Here you will find a file named:
    hyperic-hqee-agent-noJRE-5.0.0.tar.gz
  2. Untar this file. This will create a directory named:
    hyperic-hqee-agent-5.0.0
  3. Now, navigate to SAS-installation-directory/SASEnvironmentManagerAgent/2.x/hyperic-hqee-agent-5.0.0/bundles/agent-5.0.0/pdk/plugins.
  4. You are now located in the SAS Environment Manager plugin installation directory. You can find all of your base plugins here.
