3. Business Case
IBM Director will be converging on the SBLIM Data Gatherer to provide the base DMTF Metrics Profile
complaint runtime metric gathering instrumentation. We have been using it for some time for Director
Xen, zVM is planning on using for Director 6.1, and when we properly converge on some common VSM
metrics post-6.1 having some cross-platform infrastructure established and available will be even
more important. Utilized and required currently by VMControl, zGryphon, and Phoenix.

The cim providers are missing from the sblim-gather package in snapshot7. In previous releases the gatherer daemons have been packaged in sblim-gather and the CIM instrumentation in sblim-gather-provider. I didn't see the later package in my testing. Is the provider rpm going to be included, or was it overlooked in this snapshot?

It occurred to me to check the optional packages for sblim-gather-provider, and sure enough there it was. The provider package is required to retrieve metrics from the gatherer daemons via CIM, and it would make sense that it is placed with the rest of the SBLIM providers (sblim-cmpi-base, etc.). Can it be made part of the Server packages?
Changed in comps.

After reviewing snap9 the only issue I see is that the 32/31 bit sblim-gather-provider rpm package is missing on 64bit platforms.
x86_64 present but no i686
