Introduction to System Monitor Tools
System Monitor is a flexible, user-extensible utility used to monitor an InterSystems IRIS® data platform instance and generate notifications when the values of one or more of a wide range of metrics indicate a potential problem.
About System Monitor
System Monitor tools include the following monitoring tools:
System Monitor monitors system status and resources, generating notifications (alerts and warnings) based on fixed parameters and tracking overall system health.
Health Monitor samples key system and user-defined metrics and compares them to user-configurable parameters and established normal values, generating notifications when samples exceed applicable thresholds.
Application Monitor samples significant system metrics, stores the values in the local namespace, and evaluates them using user-created alert definitions. When an alert is triggered, it can either generate an email notification or call a specified class method.
All three tools run in the %SYS namespace by default. Other than Health Monitor, you can run these tools in other namespaces under namespace-specific configurations and settings. You can define and configure your own components to extend the capabilities of System Monitor in each namespace as your needs require.
