monitoring services

Hi there, is it possible to monitor services such as IIS in Insight Manager 5+?

Re: monitoring services

I have tried to compile and register the mibs using the instructions from the help file. The commands run through successfully but when viewing registered MIBS, the inetsrv.mib is not displayed.

The agent can send a trap based on start or stop of any service. For the device in question, go to Control Panel --> HP Management Agents --> Process Monitor to select the services that interest you and what the trap option is.

Re: monitoring services

"inetsrv.mib" does not contain any trap definitions and so isn't of any use to HP SIM. That MIB instruments counters that can be used to collect data using SNMP, but that is not a capability of HP SIM as it is basically a hardware manager.

Re: monitoring services

Hi, ah yes, I see what you mean. Didn't realise you could do that. By selecting the service and then stop, I presume this will be sending me a trap when this event occurs, is this correct?

Re: monitoring services

Yes, that is correct.

Re: monitoring services

Although, I have setup the process monitoring as suggested above I am still not sure if this is working. I have configured a service to be monitored and to alert me when this service has stopped. I then stopped the service on the server but received no alerts. What should I be seeing in Insight Manager?

Re: monitoring services

Hi Richard,
please check SNMP service enabled on your IIS machine (trap destination should be your SIM server). Also your IIS should be discovered in sim.
You can check trap sending: open SMH on your IIS machine > Settings > SNMP & Agen Settings > Send test trap. By problems doublecheck firewall port 162 is opened.

Re: monitoring services

Hi, i have tried to simplify testing and used a local machine to test this. I have set it up as requested as above and it worked, thanks for your suggestions.
