Health Monitoring

 

Topic Last Modified: 2007-05-30

FSSMP proactively monitors the “health” of your Forefront agent systems, by looking at events in the 7000-7999 range. Events are logged when transitions occur from one state to another. Health is indicated by a color code:

  • Green (success) – everything is functioning properly and performing well.

  • Yellow (warning) – performance is poor or a problem is impairing non-critical functionality.

  • Red (error) – critical functionality has been lost and alerts will be generated.

These are the various types of problems that FSSMP keeps track of for you.

These are the monitored engine problems.
