Monitor Knowledgebase

Summary

This process monitor watches for a Service or Daemon process to be running.

Causes

A failure indicates that the service is down. A service can stop for many reasons, including:

  • The service was stopped by an administrator.

  • The service was prevented from starting because the user account could not be authenticated.

  • The service encountered an exception that stopped the service.

  • The service was improperly configured, which prevented it from starting.

  • Another service that this service is dependent on was stopped.

Resolutions

Check the service on the system by running ps -ef | grep {servicename}, where {servicename} is the name of the service being monitored.
