Simple Process Check ?

Jump to solution
Hello,
I would like to know if there is a way to do a simple process check ?
I want to check if a process is running on the server (ex: ssh), or check if a TCP port is listening.
It's easy to do with Zabbix, but I don't know how to do this with Hyperic.

Can you help me ?

Thank you.

Hi,

There should be already a service in your inventory for SSH 😉
In order to add monitoring for other processes follow the steps
1) Click on your platform
2) Click on "Add New Service" from the Drop Down menu
3) Select Process from the list
4) Provide all required Configuration Properties incl. process.query
5) Done

The tricky part is the process.query. There should be a description on the Configuration Properties screen of your new service. Or just read this linkhttp://support.hyperic.com/display/SIGAR/PTQL

To check a port, follow the same procedure but select TCP from the list

Cheers,
Mirko
