BusinessObjects Servers monitoring and their executables path

Hi Techies,

Just wanted to share some of groundwork, I did during my previous project engagement.

We were in the process of developing a utility which periodically monitors the BOE servers in real time and notify the Server Administration/Application support team up on fail. I formulated the below matrix after analyzing, hope it might be useful for people who are searching for similar kind of information.

Sno

BusinessObjects Server

Name Of the Executable

Windows deployment

Any Unix flavor deployment

1

32-bit Connection Server

ConnectionServer32.exe

ConnectionServer32

2

64-bit Connection Server

ConnectionServer.exe

ConnectionServer

3

Adaptive Job Server

JobServer.exe

boe_jobsd

4

Adaptive Job Server Child

JobServerChild.exe

boe_jobcd

5

Central Management Server

cms.exe

boe_cmsd

6

Crystal Reports 2011 Processing Server

crproc.exe

boe_crprocd.bin

7

Crystal Reports Cache Server

crcache.exe

boe_crcached.bin

8

Dashboards Cache Server

xccache.exe

boe_xccached

9

Dashboards Processing Server

xcproc.exe

boe_xcprocd

10

Event Server

EventServer.exe

boe_eventsd

11

File Server

fileserver.exe

boe_filesd

12

Report Application Server

crystalras.exe

boe_crystalrasd

13

Web Intelligence Processing Server

wireportserver.exe

WIReportServer

Based on the above executables we can monitor the servers at operating system level using custom developed scripts (VBScript, Java Script & Shell Script)

And their Path

      Hi Mani,

      Do you have any steps to change the existing logging path to some other drive.

      Thanks

      Manual monitoring of the processes themselves! Good stuff.

      Thanks Mani.

      Hi Mani,

      Do we have any scripts VB/Shell ? for monitoring these process using CRON/WINDOWS Scheduler.

      My Idea is, the scripts will get execute periodically, identify and alert us if any service got hung/stopped etc .

      Thanks,
      Suneel Kumar

      Good to see you here Suneel. You may no longer require this as we have a in-built monitoring solution within BI platform now.
