Hello everybody.
I am NOT a Linux shark. Right now i have to monitor som services on an CentOS server. But i am most used to MS environments. After i run an inventory (installed Linux client as ordered), everything shows up fine in Asset management. Also the services and processes. But but but... There are not selectable in the monitoring pane. There none of the services or processes show up for selection. In the ms environment, you can choose them. Is there an other way to do it???? how do i monitor services from the Linux server.

Hi Michael,

I've checked with my colleagues: when you add the linux agent to monitoring, it does not show you the list of processes and services. You need to create a template for monitoring, add the asset to the template, and then you can see services and processes drop down. But Linux does not send the update to the server automatically the same way Windows does it. You can create a Cron task on the linux machine to run agent script every 5 minutes, or, if you deployed the agent via GUI, this crontask is created automatically.

You can also use Nagios with SysAid integration for more detailed monitoring on Linux.

Let me know if this helps.

Cheers,
Danny

Hi Danny...

I was aware about the update... But the tip with creating a template helps a lot.
Now i can see services and ports. But i still need the processes. Is it possible to get them as well ???
Because it is some of the processes we need to monitor

Actually all the services and ports are not correct. So after the integration, still there is no data...
