Linux Daemon Check

Monitor the status of the selected Linux Daemon processes to ensure they are in the running state. If not, an Alert can be generated based on the selected Alert Threshold criteria.

This Check also includes the option to take the proactive step of restarting the daemon if Stopped.

    1. Select the LinuxService (Daemon) from the drop-down

    2. Select the RESTART daemon if ‘Stopped’ option to ensure essential services are always running. If enabled configure the restart Alert settings.
    3. Some daemons may routinely stop as part of their normal operation, and restarting such daemons prematurely may cause problems

    4. Number of consecutive failures before alert sent this option sends an Alert when the number of consecutive failures exceeds the entered threshold figure. To adjust the sensitivity of the Alert generation select the number of consecutive failures from the drop-down (1-5). Please be aware that sending an Alert resets the consecutive failure counter.
    5. Number of consecutive restarts before alert*this option sends an Alert when the number of consecutive restarts exceeds the entered threshold figure. To adjust the Alert generation sensitivity select the number of consecutive restarts from the drop-down (1-50). Please be aware that sending an Alert resets the consecutive restart counter.
    6. Alert if daemon is restarted X times in Y hours* this option sends an Alert when the cumulative number of restarts exceeds the entered threshold figure during the selected time period. To adjust the Alert generation sensitivity select the number of restarts from Alert if service is restarted (1-5) and times in () hours
    7. Any restarts that results in a consecutive restart Alert are excluded from the cumulative count.

      * These options are only available where RESTART service if ‘Stopped is enabled
