I am hoping someone can share best practices on how you do alert monitoring to notify someone that a Broker or an RPC server that should be registered has gone down.
Not that it happens often — SAG products are reliable — but it can and does happen for various reasons and it has a serious business impact when it does. I’d like to get that alert before a business user has to tell me through the help desk. Started tasks don’t get picked up by CA-7 either (which the Broker and Natural RPC Servers are), and Windows services on remote virtual machines are limited as well.
I am hoping there are some good / best practices someone is willing to share.
If I could have something that ran every 5 minutes and pinged to check to see if the Broker is up and if all the services expected are registered to it, and if not, then I can send an email and terminate with a code that command operations WILL call out for, but I don’t know a good way to do that. Or maybe there is a better idea?
Thanks in advance!
