BigBrother Capabilities and what can we do

This question has suggested answer(s)

We have a fairly old version of Big Brother monitoring some servers. I am not sure what version it is but can supply it if asked. We are mainly monitoring some windows services and their status i.e. running, stopped etc. However, we want to monitor some more stats namely:

1)- CPU statistics (usage etc and if usage is high which process)

2)- Memory statistics (usage and if usage is high which process)

3)- URL response times for web applications on servers

Are there any add ons to record this kind of information.

Kind Regards,

Ammar Khalid

  • The tests your are interested in, are monitored natively. CPU and memory are monitored/configured by/on BBClients, and, URL testing is configured on the BBServer. URL monitoring is configured in the bb-hosts file on the BBServer, something like:

    1.2.3.4 host1.domain.com # testip http://some.domain.com

    The configuration above will monitor host1.domain.com for availability (conn test) and test the URL http://some.domain.com for availability.

    Thanks,
