We have several additional polling engines in our environment. Recently we have been having a problem with one or two of the additional polling engines stop polling, and when we check the status of the polling engine in the web console the status is Down. The fix is to shut down all services and restart all services.
My question is... Is there a way to create an alert for an additional polling engine status? It would be nice to get an alert when the polling engine status changes so I can correct the problem before the customer calls and tells me that there is data missing from their graphs.... Any hints on how to create the alert are greatly appreciated.
