Insight Manager leveraging (Application Service restarts)

Hi,

A quick question with the capabilities of HP Insight Manager...

Does anyone know if it is possible to use SIM for notification if applications services (SQL, Websense, Exchange, etc.) stop/stall?
I didn't think it was possible, but I've been told that it may be...

Thanks for any insights you may have.

On the server you want to set the alert on, go to Control Panel --> HP Management Agents --> Process Monitor [tab]. You can select the process and choose to alert on start, stop or stop & start. When the event happens, an SNMP trap will be sent to HP SIM.

Thanks, Claypool.

I know what you're speaking of...I tested it on a blade server with Version Control service (vcagent)using stop.

I configured the Event Notification tool on the server, and sent a test trap successfully, but I did not get an email for the actual service being stopped. Is there another setting within the HP Management Agent that has to be configured?

Thanks Claypool.

Rebooted the server, tested again and it kicked in.

Nice tip...
