Is it possible to monitor individual catalogs from an indexing service?



We have an Indexing Service running on Windows Server 2008 R2. Within the indexin service we have multiple catalogs. These individual catalogs can be stopped and startted.

Is is possible to monitor the status of these individual catalogs?

I already searched at the WMI and SNMP sensors but could not find anything usefull. Also googled this subject but the only thing I could find was a vbscript that extracts the status.

Hope someone can help me out with this.

Thanks in advance.

With kind Regards,

Accensys Support

I'm afraid you can only try using the VBS-Script (probably with adaptions) as a Custom Sensor..

best regards.

Can you share the link to the VB Script that you found?
