Customized Monitoring and Alerting for HP-UX Servers
Over decades supporting HP-UX in the most demanding environments, Beechglen found most monitoring tools lacking in features or too cumbersome. As a result, Beechglen developed AlertTool, a simplified, comprehensive monitoring and alerting solution for HP9000 and Integrity servers running HP-UX.
AlertTool was built using HP-UX scripts running directly on the server. AlertTool doesn’t require managing and configuring a central management server, complicated installation rollouts, SNMP configuration and security concerns.
AlertTool optionally monitors any or all of these system events, and many others:
EMS logs – Alert on new hardware errors detected by system diagnostics and
reported to EMS logs
Kernel messages – New kernel messages are monitored and reported
syslog errors – User configurable, unlimited set of errors allow you to customize for
hardware or software errors you need to know about
File system usage – Alert on file systems when usage reaches configurable
LVM mirroring – Monitor for stale extents indicating complete disk failures or even
single “bad spots” on disks that are software mirrored
Daily Heartbeat – Monitor script sends a daily summary of logged events
