Linux application monitoring in cluster



Hi there,

I need to monitor a couple of SAP processess in Linux. I can't use SNMP method as discussed in another question because processes are something like this:

1 S hmbeai 274141 1 0 80 0 - 31129 hrtime Apr20 ? 00:03:22 /WebM/IS01/common/bin/wrapper-3.5.32 /WebM/IS01/profiles/IS_default/configuration/wrapper.conf wrapper.syslog.ident=sagis103 wrapper.pidfile=/WebM/IS01/profiles/IS_default/bin/./sagis103.pid wrapper.daemonize=TRUE wrapper.name=sagis103 wrapper.displayname=Software AG Integration Server 10.3 (default) wrapper.anchorfile=/WebM/IS01/profiles/IS_default/bin/wrapper.anchor wrapper.ignore_signals=TRUE wrapper.statusfile=/WebM/IS01/profiles/IS_default/bin/./sagis103.status wrapper.java.statusfile=/WebM/IS01/profiles/IS_default/bin/./sagis103.java.status wrapper.script.version=3.5.32 -- --

and another issue is that this application can be switched to another node!

How can I monitor this?

Hi Tiago,

Thank you for your post.

If SNMP cannot be used, I recommend to write a script that monitors the required metrics. This script can be executed by the SSH Script Sensor. The SSH Script sensor connects to a Linux/Unix system via Secure Shell (SSH) and executes a script file located on the target system.

For more detailed information, please follow these links:

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
