We have Optimize for Infrastructure going and the IfraDC is happily reporting back data to the analytic engine and I can see this data via MWS.
While I can check lots of different data, checking that the server is actually up is escaping me. At first i thought I could do something like set a rule to check when RAM or port usage drops to zero but when a IS stops reporting data, this isnt seen as a “zero” so the rule doesnt get triggered.
I briefly heard an idea about having a scheduled job on the IS publish a document with an up or down status in it. I guess that would work but seems a bit of a workaround and also the IS isnt passive in this exercise.
I was hoping checking if a server is up would be the most basic task optimize could achieve for us, is there something I am missing?
