This book describes several tools available for monitoring InterSystems IRIS™.
The following chapters describe how to monitor InterSystems IRIS with tools included with InterSystems IRIS:
Using Log Monitor
Log Monitor monitors the InterSystems IRIS messages log for entries of the configured severity and generates a notification for each. These notifications are written to the alerts log by default but can instead be sent by email to specified recipients.
Using System Monitor
System Monitor is a flexible, user-extensible utility used to monitor an InterSystems IRIS instance and generate notifications when the values of one or more of a wide range of metrics indicate a potential problem. System Monitor includes a status and resource monitor, which samples important system status and resource usage indicators and generates notifications based on fixed statuses and thresholds; Health Monitor, which samples key system and user-defined metrics and generates notifications based on user-configurable parameters and established normal values; and Application Monitor, which samples significant system metrics, stores them in local namespace globals, and generates notifications based on user-created alert definitions. Alert notifications written to the messages log by System Monitor and Health Monitor can be sent by email using Log Monitor; Application Monitor alerts can be configured for email by the user.
The following chapters describe how to monitor InterSystems IRIS with system routines:
The following appendixes describe how to monitor InterSystems IRIS with various third-party tools:
