Monitoring Windows SERVICES, notifications to other adress

Post by VMSOFT » Nov 04, 2014 10:13 am

Hello,

is it possible to monitor windows services with veeam one ??
In example you have an exchange server and would like to manage the critical exchange services. Only i found processes.

The other question is it possible to send notifications to other email adresses ?
In example vcenter have many VM´s and different users manage different vm´s

regards

Hello,

You can monitor services by logging in to the process tab, setting alerts on services states is not possible yet.

Yes, you can use any email address in the post alarm actions. Just open the alarm you want (Alarms Management tab) and add a new post alarm action.

Thanks!

Thx for your reply.

Services:

You mean it is not possible yet 8) 8) . Is this a point in the future ??

Notifications:

Ok i found this in the Alarm Managemant tab but must configure all alarms manually. Click on virtual machine and make a new rule. is it possible to create a rule set for resource usage inkl. CPU RAM IO Control etc etc. for this vm´s ?

1. Yes, this feature is on my radar for next updates.
2. You can add as many triggers (rules) as you want. If one of the rules satisfies the criteria, alarm will be fired.

Hi Gwenaël,
The feature is under development now. Could you specify your request so we make sure nothing is missed?
Do you want to alarm situations when particular service is off/on? Do you want to use it for all or several particular VMs?
What about processes, do you have a need to monitor them as well?
Thanks!

Hi!

So :

I need to monitor service for specific VM (like specific software installed).
I need to monitor service by groupe of VM (like SQL Server of MySQL, installed on several VM but not all).
I need to be alerted when service is off
I need to be alerted when VM doesn't answer to ping (so "service off" alert don't have to trigger, but ping off yes)

I don't need specific process monitor but I think it could be a great functionnality in the future (I don't have it in my actuel software GFI Network monitor 7 so I don't use it but it could be great).
If it's a service, I prefere monitor service, but if there is no service, I think process is a good way to monitor.

Thanks for you answer, don't hesitate if you need other information or test a beta.

Thanks for the detailed reply. I've got your vision.
We are pretty far from beta right now. But once we have one, we can share it. So stay tuned :)

OK !

An important point I didn't mentionned, in my actual system I can indicate an action in case of problem, and for services, I can ask that I wan. I use two actions :
- restart the service
or
- restard the VM (sometimes services don't succed in restarting, need to restart the VM).

A point to mention is that I can set a different time for each action.

Example :
On the first fail, I try to restart service, on the second fail (2 minutes after) I try to restard the VM, on the 5th fail (to let time to the VM to stard, 6 minutes later), I send an alert.
It's the best action plan to maximum automate.

Automatic actions are going to be addressed as well.
As for action A for the first alarm trigger, action B for the second etc. is not in the plans yet, but I'll keep the request in mind.

I think I could set 3 alarms with different delay to simulate the same functionality...

Yes, that should work.
Some alarms have options "Trigger after" / "Ignore after" and "Delay". Nice workaround.

I've been out of the loop for some time...Any official support for monitoring windows services or VM network connectivity like ICMP?

Hello Dave,
Yes, starting from v9.5 u4 you can monitor services and create alarms based on them.
Thanks!

Great news. Does that include ICMP or other ways of alerting when a VM loses network connectivity, like a wrong VLAN?

You can report about triggered alarms by means of SNMP Traps.
