SNMP process monitoring - blacknasa - 02-08-2011


I wanna monitor process in a Linux machine , however the process i wanna monitor has many instances and the PID change every time the Process open a new instance .

Do i have to create a "NETWORK SERVER MODULE" for every instance or can i create one "NETWORK SERVER MODULE" that will check that the Process is UP and running

Thanks in advance

Hello blacknasa,

It is not neccesary to create a network server module for every instance, you can monitor the process for example creating a plugin server module, with a software agent or with a remote tcp network agent (network server module) searching for a port, etc.
