vicsu … what manager 6.5 has is the ability to tell if a service is currently running or not, how many times the service is invoked with the collection interval etc. But, it won’t give you ability to tell if a service has been running for 30 mins (say).
Rob…I agree with you. We should tackle the root cause of the problem.The above requirement is the result of one of the components that takes data from webMethods was not responding and because of the way we configured our triggers to do synchronous processing, it backed up the broker client queues. Since then we have added monitoring tools to monitor the client application and client queues etc. Also the problem with the client application is fixed. Unfortunately, there are many other such applications managed by different teams and we want to prevent this kind of situation again. So, I was looking if I can preemptively take some action instead of realizing the problem after it goes unnoticed for too long.
But I also realized this may not be the best approach to do it since there are too many services and it is hard to monitor each one of them.
