Hi, I'm not sure if this is a feature request or if there may be a solution already. Here's the specifics:
A customer is using Filemaker Server and it relies on the httpd service which is Apache to connect the web form feed via PHP. It stops occasionally and it would be most helpful to get an alert when it does just like with Windows services. I looked at monitoring an Application in the Pulseway preferences but did not see one that I should select. The Filemaker consultant indicated that Filemaker installs it's own version of Apache and the restart command is:
sudo /Library/Filemaker\ Server/HTTPServer/bin/httpdctl graceful
which differs from the standard
sudo apachectl -k start
So this is either a feature request or help to know how the existing version of Pulseway for Mac and provide this monitoring.
I have been searching for a way to have my Mac Pro running 4D Server app notify me if the server app has "hung" or crashed outright. I am not a programmer, but simply a small business owner trying to stay on top of the systems we have. Having stumbled into Pulseway this week, I am so far impressed with its capabilities. It looks just like what I need!
However, I could not find a way to tell it to notify me if my database app runs into trouble. The physical machine is extremely stable, but I am grateful for the notifications that Pulseway offers in terms of dismounting volumes, failing drives, etc. My one last need is to be notified if the server application hangs or crashes. I have identified the app in the Notifications/Applications panel: Send a notification when an application is closed. I then picked the 4D Server.app from the list. However, I was hoping there was a way to build a script that would let me know if the server was still up, but not responding. But not a programmer, like I said.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
