Infosphere Guardium Agent/Module Naming Scheme

Technote (FAQ)


Question

What is the naming scheme for Guardium agents/modules (STAP, KTAP, CAS, GIM & Discovery)?

Cause

Lack of documentation on Guardium agent/module naming scheme.

Answer

A] Naming scheme for all agents/modules in v9.0 and v9.1 prior to release of GPU 500 is as follows:

STAP agent:
InfoSphere_Guardium_S-TAP_<OS>_<MajorVer>_<Revision>
Example:
InfoSphere_Guardium_S-TAP_Red_Hat_9.1_r71327


KTAP module:
guard-STAP-<MajorVer>_<InternalBuildVer>-<OSVer-Architecture>_<Revision>_<BuildDate>
Example:
guard-STAP-9.0.0v90_3-rhel-5-linux-x86_64_r71327_2015-02-20


CAS agent:
InfoSphere_Guardium_CAS_<OS>_<MajorVer>_<Revision>
Example:
InfoSphere_Guardium_CAS_Windows_9.1_r56624



Unix GIM & Discovery module:
InfoSphere_Guardium_GIM_and_Discovery_<OS>_<MajorVer>_<Revision>
Example:
InfoSphere_Guardium_GIM_and_Discovery_Red_Hat_9.1_r71327


Windows GIM:
InfoSphere_Guardium_GIM_<OS>_<MajorVer>_<Revision>
Example:
InfoSphere_Guardium_GIM_Windows_9.1_r60431


B] Naming scheme for all agents/modules released post GPU 500 release (including v8.2 agents/modules) is as follows:

Guardium_[argument1]_[argument2]_[argument3]_]_[argument4]_[argument5]_]_[argument6]_[argument7]

[argument1] = Guardium version number, examples - 8.2, 9.0, 9.1, 9.5, 10

[argument2] = Name of agent, examples- STAP, ATAP, KTAP, CAS, GIM, GIM-DISCOVERY, FAM

[argument3] = Name of operating system, examples - RedHat, Suse, zLinux, Ubuntu, Solaris, AIX, HPUX, Windows

[argument4] - Optional - version of operating system installed on

[argument5] -Optional - topography, x86_64, i686, etc.

[argument6] = Build version, example - r71327
[argument7] - Optional - additional information (for example, add a date for KTAP)

Examples -

STAP agent:
Guardium_9.5_S-TAP_Suse_r73521


KTAP module:
Guardium_KTAP_8.2_suse-11-linux-x86-64_r45364_2015-03-30


CAS agent:
Guardium_9.5_CAS_Suse_rxxxxx


Unix GIM & Discovery module:
Guardium_9.5_GIM-Discovery_RedHat_r73521


Windows GIM:
Guardium_9.5_GIM_Windows_r73464

Note:
1) There is no Discovery module for Windows.
2) The agent/module naming scheme was standardized in Guardium v9. However, v8.2 agents/modules released post v9 GPU 500 release will follow this naming convention.
