You can use the PATROL KM for UNIX to monitor processes in your environment. The PATROL KM for UNIX can monitor:

  • a single process on a single computer
  • a local process across multiple computers within a process host group (this feature is helpful when you are monitoring processes in a clustered environment)
  • several running instances of a process on a single computer
  • several running instances of a process across multiple computers within a process host group (this feature is helpful when you are monitoring processes in a clustered environment)

When you set up a process for monitoring, you can use the PATROL KM for UNIX to:

  • restart a process that has stopped
  • stop a process
  • alarm when an unauthorized User ID owns a process
  • alarm when the number of processes running in a host group drops below a specified minimum number
  • alarm when the number of processes running in a host group exceeds a specified maximum number
  • alarm when a process does not have a parent process ID (PPID) of 1 (a PPID of 1 indicates that a process is owned by init)

Note

Users can make changes to settings in the PROCESS PRESENCE application class via a PATROL Operator Console. You must set up access control lists (ACLs) to prevent users from making changes to PROCESS PRESENCE settings via a PATROL Operator Console.
