Servers status

Purpose

In a BusinessObjects instance, servers provide services to the BusinessObjects application server.
If a server is not active, some key functionalities can fail. It is important that every mandatory services for the business are running.
This monitor will   watch server states and detect when one is not in its expected state for too long time
For example, you can have an alert when a server is in the state STOPPED for more than 5 minutes.

Configuration hints

  • Use the button “Load servers” to get the servers from your BO system. Then select the servers you want to monitor.
