General Support / LogWatch
« on: January 30, 2009, 07:29:05 am »
Hi - version 2.24 has LOGWATCH, however, I am unable to find any information on it's usage.

It appears from the changelog that server Events in the Event log can be monitored. How do I access this feature? The agent has the option installed and 2.24 sever is also being used

many thanks in advance


General Support / Useful WMI Queries
« on: November 14, 2008, 07:46:36 am »
I suggest we use this topic to update it with useful WMI queries. My interest is in IIS and SQL. I am having luck with IIS but not SQL, ie a logsize for a particular database is becoming difficult. My set that I can offer, and more will follow are as follows.

iis anoymous users
WMI.Query(root\cimv2,select * from Win32_PerfFormattedData_W3SVC_WebService, TotalAnonymousUsers)

iis service
WMI.Query(root\microsoftiisv2,select * from iiswebservice,state)

nlb status - 1008 shows all is ok - more details here
WMI.Query(root\MicrosoftNLB,select * from MicrosoftNLB_Node, StatusCode)

SQL Cache Memory KB
WMI.Query(root\CIMV2,select * from Win32_PerfFormattedData_MSSQLSERVER_SQLServerMemoryManager,SQLCacheMemoryKB)

SQL Transactions
WMI.Query(root\CIMV2,select * from Win32_PerfFormattedData_MSSQLSERVER_SQLServerTransactions, Transactions)

iis bytes received
WMI.Query(root\cimv2,select * from Win32_PerfFormattedData_W3SVC_WebService, TotalBytesReceived)

iis bytes sent
WMI.Query(root\cimv2,select * from Win32_PerfFormattedData_W3SVC_WebService, TotalBytesSent)

iis current connections
WMI.Query(root\cimv2,select * from Win32_PerfFormattedData_W3SVC_WebService, CurrentConnections)

available memory
WMI.Query(root\cimv2,select * from Win32_perfRawData_PerfOS_Memory,AvailableMbytes)

General Support / Database Structure
« on: October 13, 2008, 06:34:20 am »
I have Netxms installed using a MS SQL 2005 database. The plan is to have Netxms gather all the relevant WMI and SNMP statistics and server status then have an intranet webpage developed to extract various information from the Netxms database and show the status, ie are certain servers up, SQL and IIS server transaction statistics.

To achieve this a better understanding of the database fields is needed. Is there any documentation available to show the database field structure, in particular the latest values for node data collection.

many thanks

General Support / Communications Failure on WMI Queries
« on: October 06, 2008, 10:41:36 am »
We have netxms 0.2.22 installed on a Windows 2003 server. An agent is installed on on Windows 2003 server with wmi subagent.

Running the wmi query WMI.Query(root\MicrosoftIISv2,select * from IISWebService,status) works if the agent has been restarted, however, a subsequest running of the same command fails with "Cannot get parameter: Communication failure". Restart the agent and the command works.

Running any other agent command, ie System.Hostname, works everytime. Any valid WMI Query works just once. Is there anything either I have missed or doing wrong?

General Support / SNMP and Apache Tomcat
« on: June 16, 2008, 11:07:48 am »
Has anyone had any experience in monitoring Apache tomcat servers with netxms via SNMP? I have seen where some monitoring systems, like MRTG, use Mod-Apache-Snmp to interface with Apache servers but this looks old (2006).

I am looking for OID values that can be used to monitor via Netxms

many thanks

General Support / WMI Queries
« on: June 12, 2008, 10:28:35 am »
I am impressed with Netxms, especially the fact the data is stored in SQL which allows for a simple to use data collector.

A few days have been spent on getting SNMP queries to a MS-SQL 2005 system working when I found a webpage showing that Microsoft no longer support SNMP queries to SQL 2005 .... so that leaves WMI to perform the checks.

I see that Netxms has a "Generic WMI Query" option within the agent, but I do not see any information on how to use this feature.

Has anyone done WMI queries on SQL and/or other Windows performance settings? If so how is this done.

General Support / Adding Mibs
« on: May 29, 2008, 07:51:52 am »
I have spent some time searching the forum and other places for this answer .... but ...

Adding MIBS .... I have tried to add the MS-SQL mib and others only to have them fail with various paser errors. Can someone please either point me in the direction of where to locate mibs that work with NETXMS or explain why these errors occur.

I like NETXMS as it allows you to poll devices and store the results in SQL where a purpose built web page can be created from the results but this requires additional mib information.

Any help on how to compile mibs and the location of mibs that work with Netxms would be very helpful

many thanks in advance  ;D
