The Critical Application (
critagt) Subagent monitors system processes by reporting
process status, initiating process restarts, and sending traps based on
process status. The Subagent can be set to detect a currently running
process and/or to start that process when the Subagent starts.
The Critical Application Monitor custom page provides two boxes at the top of the page, each showing the current value set for a variable. When set to true, "Sent Trap When All Running" sends a trap when all processes are running satisfactorily. When "Send Trap When at least One Down" is set to true, a trap is sent if any of the processes within the Critical Application Monitor table goes from a status of up to down (i.e., a process dies).
The Add a Row field lets you add an additional row (process) to the Critical Application Monitor table. On a subsequent page, this row can be used to configure details about how to start/stop the process as well as which conditions should be met when monitoring the process status.
