I wanted to know if there is any command to explicitly check the status of an HA agent. I ask this question out of curiosity.
Adding to it, while i was browsing through the running processes on ESX host, i saw a few processes among them.
root 9060 1 0 Feb19 ? 00:00:14 /opt/vmware/aam/bin/ftAgent -d vmware
root 9083 9060 0 Feb19 ? 00:00:00 /opt/vmware/aam/bin/ftStateMon
root 9092 9060 0 Feb19 ? 00:01:00 /opt/vmware/aam/bin/ftProcMon -domain vmware
root 9166 9060 0 Feb19 ? 00:00:01 /opt/vmware/aam/ha/VMap
ftagent spawns other processes as well. So can anyone please shed some light on the significance of these process and on what they are meant to do?
Thanks in advance for any info. provided.
if you are only interested in if the HA agent is running
ps -ef | grep ftAgent
should be sufficient.
