Re: How definition ovodetect and how that working?

Hello Okik,


Ovodetect is a utility used to retrieve system and licensing information about managed nodes.
You can use it as follows:


“#Ovodetect –l ovoagt” is the license option, you can use it to get information about the node license status.


“#ovodetect –s <type>” Will let you gather system information about the agent.


The <type> can be any of the follow:
  cpu                          Number of CPUs
  cputype                      Type of the CPU (platform)
  ostype                       Operating Syste, Type
  osname                       Operating System Name
  osversion                    Operating System Version
  osvendor                     Operating System Vendor
  osbits                       Operating System bits (32 or 64)
  agtbits                      OVO Agent binary bits (32 or 64)

You can also use the ovdeploy utility from the management server to gather this information remotely. For example:
#ovdeploy -cmd "ovodetect -s cputype"

Hope this helps.

Why ovodetect always appears when I do grep OV?

Could you tell me know what this ovodetect appears when I grep OV? and overall make slow when I grep OV, a lot ovodetect emerging.

Re: How definition ovodetect and how that working?

Hello Okik,

 

Ovodetect is used by opcmsga to retrieve information from the nodes. Some SPIs use this command as well.

 

You can take a look at which files are being used by a process using the lsof command.

 

Use the lsof command with the open processes you shared on your first post, that could give us more clues on what is actually using the ovodetect.pl script.

 

Regards,

 

Alex.
