Newbie questions
#1
Hi,

Is it possible to monitor exchange setups with Pandora? I see MS SQL is listed on the homepage but not exchange.

Is it possible to monitor remote systems through firewalls by way of a remote agent which reports back to the server ? Nagios does something similar and its very handy.

How hard is it to hack my own custom agents? Say if i wanted to monitor windows event logs for a certain event log entry and to fire off a script accordingly or to watch for a service stopping and then fire off a script to restart it? Can i do this ?

Hi Olly,
with Pandora you can monitor anything. If there are not a agent to do it you or other person can develop it.

Do you want a remote agent which reports back to the server through Firewalls? You can open the scp port in Firewall and the agent can report directly to the server in real time. what you want exactly?

You need C knowledge and time to do a agent.

Regards.

Villa.

Hi Olly,

If you know who to "read" exchange setups from a script or progam, you can monitor it.

Agent modules can be made in any programming language you know, at the end you only need to create an xml with some struture that contains the data, and send it to the server.

Thanks for all the info.

Ideally I'm after an agent that doesnt require any open ports. I think this is done with Nagios by having the agent download the parameters to monitor from the monitoring server itself. This means, as long as there is internet access to the client server it will be able to collect its monitoring parameters, and then upload any results.

Well, If I understand correctly you want to monitorice a remote server without installing a remote agent, right?
Nagios in the end does something like ssh [email protected] command

I guess you could hack or write your own script to do what I wrote above and creating the XML needed by Pandora.

Please could you be more clear about your requeriments

Cheers

No no. I want an agent, but the agent gets its info from the server, so the client doesnt need to open ports on their router. The only end that needs a port open is the Server end.
