Seeded External Scripts

Several external perl scripts come with Open Manage Network Manager as examples of the kind of commands you can execute (and Monitor, see Adaptive CLI in Monitoring). These are in \owareapps\performance\scripts under the installation root.

To run these, the scripts panel in the Adaptive CLI editor should contain something like the following:

perl ../../../owareapps/performance/scripts/http_test.pl

Notice that these also include a parameter (Result) that contains values extracted.Set up attribute extraction in the Values Extraction tab of the script editor.
