Active Roles 7.2.1 - Management Pack Technical Description

Monitoring Active Roles Administration Service

Monitoring Active Roles Administration Service

This section briefly discusses the processing rules that the Management Pack uses to monitor availability and health of the Active Roles Administration Service:

  • General response
  • Replication monitoring
  • Monitoring of connection to configuration database
  • Monitoring of Dynamic Group-related operations
  • Monitoring of Group Family-related operations
  • Internal error
  • Critical error on startup
  • License system failure

Monitoring of general response and replication is performed by using custom, script-based processing rules. Those rules run on a scheduled basis, analyzing information returned by the scripts and raising an appropriate event if an error situation is detected. The schedule is stored as part of rule configuration data, and can be adjusted by managing rule properties in the Operations Manager console.

General response - Script

This rule uses a script to check the responsiveness of the Administration Service by periodically issuing a simple request to the Service. By default, this rule is scheduled to run every 10 minutes. The schedule can be adjusted by managing rule properties in the Operations Manager console.

General response - Alert

This rule generates an alert when the General response script detects that the Administration Service is unavailable.

Possible causes of the alert include:

  • Administration Service is not running
  • Administration Service is not configured properly
  • Administration Service has encountered a critical error
  • Administration database is unavailable

Replication monitoring - Script

Monitoring Active Roles Administration Service > Replication monitoring - Script

This rule uses a script to check the status of Active Roles replication. The script is intended to run on the Publisher Administration Service so as to verify the replication status of the Publisher and Subscribers. By default, this rule is scheduled to run every 30 minutes. The schedule can be adjusted by managing rule properties in the Operations Manager console.
