Iptables Service Monitoring

Recommended Posts

I am running CentOS 6 and I can track most of my /etc/init.d services just fine - except for iptables.  When the service is running, Pulseway reports that it is down.

For example, these lines work just fine:

<Service Name="ntpd" DisplayName="NTPD Service" IsDaemon="true" DaemonType="SYSVINIT" Path="" StartParameters="" CanBeStopped="true" Enabled="true"/>
<Service Name="crond" DisplayName="Cron Daemon" IsDaemon="true" DaemonType="SYSVINIT" Path="" StartParameters="" CanBeStopped="true" Enabled="true"/>

But this one does not

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

Does anyone have any ideas?  I'm relatively new to Pulseway so it is entirely possible that I'm just missing something obvious.

 

Edit: I just confirmed that I can start the service successfully when I manually stop it, but it still never detects it as running.

Hi,

Unfortunately you can't monitor this service. There is no status (as in service status) reported when you check the service status. It will only list the rules in all chains.
