Monitored Service Centos 6.6


Recommended Posts


I have installed pulseway on server with centos 6.6. I have configured the file config.xml and the system notify me when his UP or DOWN. 

But i need to configure the notification when a service shutdown. I try with this code    

<Service Name="orkaudio" DisplayName="orkaudio VCR" IsDaemon="true" DaemonType="UPSTART" Path="" StartParameters="" CanBeStopped="true" Enabled="true" />


<Service Name="orkaudio" DisplayName="orkaudio VCR" IsDaemon="true" DaemonType="SYSVINIT" Path="" StartParameters="" CanBeStopped="true" Enabled="true" />

without success.


On the console i start and stop the service with:

service orkaudio start 

service orkaudio stop
Witch is the correct configuration for monitor this service??
Best regard

Hi Alessandro,

Welcome to the Pulseway community. To enable service notifications you will need to modify this XML element from the "Notifications" XML element:

    <!--Send a notification when a service has stopped for a number of minutes (between 1 and 120)-->
    <ServiceStopped Priority="1" Minutes="1" Enabled="false"/>

Hi Chris,

the notification for the ServiceStopped was already enabled.

I think that the system can't read the real state of the service.

I attach the monitor of the service on my phone. Pulseway view orkaudio VCR but in a STOP state, but actually it's up and run.


I suppose there is something wrong in my code posted in the first message.

I'm having a similar issue with Pulseway on Ubuntu 15.04 and my Raspberry Pi. No matter what I put into the service monitor lines, they always show as stopped in the monitoring client. For example, I'm trying to watch the MySQL service:

<Service Name="mysql.service" DisplayName="MySQL" IsDaemon="true" DaemonType="SYSTEMD" Path="" StartParameters="" CanBeStopped="true" Enabled="true" />

On my RasPi, I'm trying to watch a regular SysVInit service:

<Service Name="pidp8" DisplayName="PiDP-8" IsDaemon="true" DaemonType="SYSVINIT" Path="" StartParameters="" CanBeStopped="true" Enabled="true" />

Neither of these works. What is the proper syntax to use on these lines? Also, sometimes after changing these lines the Pulseway service will crash and I have to set 'Enabled="false"' before it will start again.
