How to define linux process name

[Deleted User][Deleted User]


I try to check if a linux process is running but I always get the DOWN status. I have installed the "serv" program add-on on the linux machine to check and if I just do a telnet to that port I get the process list back from the ps -A command (in UNIX text format). I am running serverscheck on a Win2000 machine.

Do I specify the procss name wrong? can I just type "httpd" as process name to check? in what format does serverscheck exprect the result?

    Can serverscheck access the Linux based computer on port 5555 accessible?

    What is the error you are receiving?

    You can manually launch it as follows:

    1/ create in the agents subdirectory a file called test.conf with following parameters (one per line):


    process name

    2/ launch following in the agents subdirectory from the command prompt: linuxproc_check test

    3/ Look at the output in test.conf file that was created

    It seems to be a little bit random and machine dependent. When running from a W2K server, it works most of the times if specifying a process only appearing once for instance the "init" process. But when specifying a process appearing several times ("httpd") I get "NO PROCESS FOUND".

    Doing the same on a W2K workstation seems to work perfect.

    Development will check this out and if it is a confirmed bug, then an update will be posted.
