No notification when service is "active (excited)"

Recommended Posts

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.

Hi Aarron,

You always can check the current status for the monitored service from your mobile device or from the Pulseway WebApp. Currently Pulseway sends the notification only if the service is stopped. But if you want to receive the notification if the service is started, then you will need to use the Pulseway REST API to send this notification from your system.
