application agent monitoring

Hello All,

I have a quick question about Application Monitoring, From my understnading if we have parameter for PIdFiles field, we don't need monitor script becase Application Agent will check the PID Number against OS tabel and will provide the status.

In this case we don't need the monitor script. Am I right ?

Re: application agent monitoring

Correct, see below in bold.

 

Application agent

The Application agent brings applications online, takes them offline, and monitors their status. Use it to specify different executables for the online, offline, and monitor routines for different programs. The executables can be on local storage or shared storage. You can use this agent to provide high availability for applications that do not have bundled, enterprise, or custom agents.

An application runs in the default context of root. Specify the user name to run an application in a user context.

You can monitor the application in the following ways:

  • Use the monitor program

  • Specify a list of processes

  • Specify a list of process ID files

  • Any combination of the above

This agent is IMF-aware and uses asynchronous monitoring framework (AMF) kernel driver for IMF notification. For more information about the Intelligent Monitoring Framework (IMF) and intelligent resource monitoring, refer to the Veritas Cluster Server Administrator's Guide.

Prevention Of Concurrecy Violation (ProPCV), a group level attribute, can be enabled through the Command Line Interface (CLI) to prevent an online resource on a node from coming online on another node, outside of VCS control, in the same cluster. This action prevents data corruption of resources. The attribute can only be set for a local failover type group. For more information about ProPCV action entry point, refer to the Veritas Cluster Server Administrator's Guide.
