CPU/Memory Monitor

The CPU/Memory monitor has two parts of monitoring, a CPU and a Memory part. Both parts are checked frequently in a specified check interval. By default this interval is configured to 60 seconds so a check is done after every 1 minute. Both CPU and memory part can be disabled and enabled. The service becomes useless if you disable both parts.

CPU/Memory Monitor Properties

Here you find a series of tabs namely CPU, Total Memory, Physical Memory and Virtual Memory.

Check Interval

File Configuration field:
nSleepTime
Description:
The CPU/Memory Monitor runs periodically. This specifies, how often it should run. Please note that the CPU / Memory Monitor waits the configured amount of time after the current run is finished. The time is the delay in milliseconds.

CPU/Memory Monitor Properties

Enable CPU Check

File Configuration field:
nCPUEnable
Description:
If this option is checked then it allows you to monitor the CPU.

CPU usage Alarm level

File Configuration field:
nCPUUsageAlarmLevel
Description:
If the CPU usage reaches this level, an event is generated internally. Depending on how the occurences value is configured, an Information Unit is generated.

Note: this value is in terms of percentage.

Occurences until alarm is raised

File Configuration field:
nCPUOccurences
Description:
Defines how often the CPU usage level has to occur in a row until an event is raised.

Also report if CPU level is below the Alarm level

File Configuration field:
nCPUReportIfBelowAlarm
Description:
If this option is checked it generates an Information Unit during each run whether it is below the alarm level or above. This option is useful for statistics and debugging.

For Multiprocessor Systems only: Report for each CPU

File Configuration field:
nCPUSingle
Description:
This option can only be used if you have a Multiprocessor System. When this option is checked the CPU usage is analyzed for each CPU and for the whole amount of CPU usage.

Total Memory Properties

Enable Memory Check

File Configuration field:
nMEMEnable
Description:
If this option is checked then it allows you to monitor the memory.

Memory usage Alarm level

File Configuration field:
nMEMUsageAlarmLevel
Description:

Defines the alarm level for the memory usage. Note that virtual and physical memory are calculated together.

Note that this value is in terms of percentage.

Occurences until alarm is raised

File Configuration field:
nMEMOccurences
Description:
Defines how often the memory usage has to be over the memory usage alarm level in a row.

Also report if Memory level is below the Alarm level

File Configuration field:
nMEMReportIfBelowAlarm
Description:
This also generates an event if the memory usage is below the alarm level. A useful option for testing and debugging.

Physical Memory Properties

Enable Physical Memory Check

File Configuration field:
nMEMPsyEnable
Description:
If this option is checked then it allows you to monitor the physical memory.

Physical Memory usage Alarm level

File Configuration field:
nMEMPsyUsageAlarmLevel
Description:

Defines the alarm level for the physical memory usage.

Note that this value is in terms of percentage.

Occurences until alarm is raised

File Configuration field:
nMEMPsyOccurences
Description:
Defines how often the physical memory usage has to be over the physical memory usage alarm level in a row.

Also report if Physical Memory level is below the Alarm level

File Configuration field:
nMEMPsyReportIfBelowAlarm
Description:
This also generates an event if the physical memory usage is below the alarm level. A useful option for testing and debugging.

Virtual Memory Properties

Enable Virtual Memory Check

File Configuration field:
nMEMVirtEnable
Description:
If this option is checked then it allows you to monitor the virtual memory.

Virtual Memory usage Alarm level

File Configuration field:
nMEMVirtUsageAlarmLevel
Description:

Defines the alarm level for the virtual memory usage.

Note that this value is in terms of percentage.

Occurences until alarm is raised

File Configuration field:
nMEMVirtOccurences
Description:
Defines how often the virtual memory usage has to be over the virtual memory usage alarm level in a row.

Also report if Virtual Memory level is below the Alarm level

File Configuration field:
nMEMVirtReportIfBelowAlarm
Description:
This also generates an event if the virtual memory usage is below the alarm level. A useful option for testing and debugging.

General Values (Common settings for most services)

Syslog Facility

File Configuration field:
nSyslogFacility
Description:
The Syslog facility to be assigned to events created by this service. Most useful if the message is to forward to a Syslog server.

Syslog Priority

File Configuration field:
nSyslogPriority
Description:
The Syslog priority to be assigned to events created by this service. Most useful if the message is to forward to a Syslog server.

Resource ID

File Configuration field:
szResource
Description:
The Resource ID to be assigned to events created by this service. Most useful if the message is to forward to a Syslog server.

Syslog Tag Value

File Configuration field:
szSyslogTagValue
Description:
The Syslog tag value to be assigned to events created by this service. Most useful if the message is to forward to a Syslog server.

Rule Set to Use

File Configuration field:
szRuleSetName
Description:
Name of the rule set to be used for this service. The Rule Set name must be a valid Rule Set.
