Can I monitor a Domino Server-Task?



Hello, is it possible to monitor a server-task on a Lotus Domino Server? I know that I can monitor the port of the Domino Server. But on the Domino Server there are 2 tasks running and I don't know how I can monitor them. Thanks for your help!

i am trying the same thing - first you have to setup the lnsnmp-agent. there is an IBM workaround available, just google for "lnsnmp agent".

when ur done with the configuration, download the paessler snmp tester tool. here you can test if you correctly setup the snmp on the domino server.

to monitor the status of a tasks for example, use this oid: (x stands for the number of the task u want to monitor)

but there is a problem which i haven't solved with prtg so far: the oids to monitor tasks aren't constant - they change their value when you restart the domino server or the task itself. for example: gives u the status of the indexer task = idle

now you restart ur domino server because of an error or whatever: then gives u the status of another task for example smtp = idle

i really don't know how to monitor ln tasks with prtg, you need to scan the hole mib-table and filter the right line with a conastant value for example the task-name. and then you have to find the right value for the status of the task by using it's name...
