This process monitor watches for the SSHD process to be running. SSHD is the daemon for ssh. It replaces rlogin and rsh, and provides secure encrypted communication between two untrusted hosts over an insecure network. There should be at least one process running at all times.
A failure indicates that the ssh service on the system is down.
Check the service by running ps -ef | grep sshd or by viewing the diagnostic in the Operations Manager Console. Start it by running the command "service sshd start" or by clicking the recovery link in the Operations Manager Console.
For root cause analysis, first check the system logfiles (/var/log/messages) and (/var/log/secure), and view any related entries at the time of failure.
