The application monitor does what it's supposed to... tell me when an application is in a up/down state. But frequently we have services that stop working but the service is still running and the application monitor won't pick that up. For example if I'm monitoring a web server it would be better to poll port 80 for a response rather than check if IIS is running or not.
What other software can we use to check the actual health of a service? And how have you (if you have) inegrated that back into Orion.
Services we are specifically looking to monitor more effectively are things like Blackberry, Oracle, SQL, SMTP, Exchange...
Thanks, I was just browsing the website and looking at it. Definitely worth checking out I think.
I love what IP monitor can and does do, but the interface is horrible.. I am hoping solarwinds incorporates part of IMP into orion
