Manage Nodinite Monitoring Resources
The Monitoring Resources in Nodinite Monitor Views populates automatically from the Nodinite Monitoring Agents. Also, the state automatically synchronizes according to the user-defined polling interval. The set of properties to modify is limited.
To ease the Administration, the available information is divided into the following tabs and panes:
- General tab
- Configuration tab
- History tab
- Monitoring Agent
- Monitor Views
Managing a Nodinite Monitoring Resource.
The information in the General tab is read-only.
- State - Current state of the Resource
- Name - Name of the Resource
- Description - User friendly description
- Log Text - Log Text is the user-friendly representation of the current monitoring state
- Error Code - Error Code representing current monitoring state (default if not set = 0)
The Nodinite Administrator can modify the following properties:
Example of the Configuration tab for the selected Resource.
You can provide a link to an external Web Site with additional information. When set, the Resource presents inside Monitor Views with an external link icon. The end-user can click on this link to open a new tab with the target URL (Web Site).
The Nodinite Administrator can override the evaluation of the current Monitoring state of the Resource configuring the Expected State feature.
For example, The SQL Monitoring Agent returns a SQL Job that is currently disabled. By design renders a Warning. By setting the Expected State for Warning to OK the alert is suppressed and displayed as being OK. In addition, a small coloured circle shows what's going on. The latter indicates "We hear you - but hey, there's something strange going on here".
Example of a Resource using the Expected State feature.
To manage the Resource, click on the Configuration tab. Then, use the Expected state configuration section to set the expected state according to your preference.
The Nodinite Administrator can add logic to have the system automatically perform an Remote Action depending on the evaluated state.
To manage the Autohealing configuration, click on the Edit button.
- Enabled - When checked, this autohealing entry is active, otherwise it is not
- State - Select the evaluated Monitoring state when to perform the Remote Action
- Action - Select a Remote Action to perform when the Resource is in the specified evaluated Monitoring state
- Attempts - Specify the number of attempts to perform
- Interval - Specify the period in seconds between the retry operations
