No notification when service is "active (excited)" in Linux Posted October 24, 2017 We recently noticed a problem with our Pulseway notifications, on one of our Linux servers that is running Cassandra. The Cassandra service had been put into the following state: Active: active (excited), unfortunately we never received notification about the excited state. I did some testing and when I manually stop the service, it shows Active: inactive (dead), I do get notifications. I am at a lose as to why I get notifications when inactive (dead) but not when it is Active (excited). This is the current configuration: <Service Name="cassandra" DisplayName="cassandra" IsDaemon="true" DaemonType="SYSTEMD" Path="" StartParameters="" CanBeStopped="true" Enabled="true" /> If I change DaemonType to any other setting: NONE, SYSVINIT, or UPSTART, the service will not be recognized at all by Pulseway. So I am fairly confident that SYSTEMD is the correct parameter here. What is the correct way to set this up, so that I get notifications when its dead and/or excited? Thank you for your help.
