Dropped network connection


Recommended Posts

Hi

Could someone assist in helping me to set up an alert when a network connection is dropped.

This is happening at one of my client sites after changing to a new ISP. The ISP says the router/switch is fine but connections are dropping.

I would like to be able to log when a connection drops (ideally knowing if the internet connection has dropped or just the internal network connection)

I'm not sure a simple ping notification is good enouh in Pulseway to do this as I need to know if the connection has dropped for a few mseconds as well as larger outages.

I guess the Event Viewer holds the answers but would appreciate it if anyone has done this before if they could share their thoughts.

Thank you, Andy

Hi @Andy Raybould,

You may try to configure multiple Ping notifications which are triggered at a different times. Also, you may configure the website monitoring however this monitoring will not give you so detailed information regarding connectivity as ping does, because the minimum time interval for the Website monitoring is 1 minute.

      Hello there,
      I was in the process of configuring my Pulseway agent on a VPS running Ubuntu Server 20.04 and I ran in this interesting bug.
      Even using the sample config provided by the agent, uncommenting the Ping Responses bloc throws this error in the log, and prevents the service from starting.
      vps pulseway: Starting Pulseway Daemon version 6.5 (2019082205) vps pulseway: Configuration: Values for 'Milliseconds' attribute at 'PingResponse' node 10.6.0.53(1) should be between 1 and 1000 vps systemd: pulseway.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE  
      The PingResponse bloc in /etc/pulseway/config.xml looks like this:
      <PingResponses> <PingResponse Address="10.6.0.53" Milliseconds="1500" Minutes="1" PriorityOnSlowResponse="1" PriorityOnNoResponse="1" Alias="vps DNS notif" Enabled="true"/> </PingResponses>  
      So then I tried many Milliseconds values between 1 and 1000 but the same exact error always comes back.
      Is this a known issue or is there anything wrong with my setup?
       
      Many thanks to anyone who can help,
      Best,

      Hi all,
      I recently did a clean upgrade to Windows 10 on 2 WKSTs previously running Windows 7 with Pulseway installed.  I am now at a loss as to how to re-add these units to my Pulseway instance.
      I see they are still showing up in the “Deployment Successful” tab under “Discovery & Deployment”.
      Is there a way to re-add these units without manually installing the Pulseway app on these WKSTs?

      Hello, I have a question about the Pulseway app. When the pc is on all of the commands work great and are perfect for managing the pc. But I am attempting to turn on my pc when I am away from my home and then be able to fully control it like I was there. The issue is how the wake up command from sleep or from powered down will not work even when on my home network. How can I fix this. Also a side question, is there a way I would be able to see a live view of the screen or does it only allow screenshots of the screen. Thanks

      We reinstalled Pulseway on a re-imaged system and after the install we noticed issues. In the patch mgmt section, the status was "assign failed" in red. We rebooted the system and then the service was not starting. We checked the service, it was set to start automatically and in the event log it was generating this error: "Service cannot be started.  The handle is invalid"  We removed the system from Pulseway, uninstalled, and reinstalled. Service is starting normally, but still getting the same issue of the patch policy failing to assign. I tried moving the system to another group that did not have a patch policy at all and got the same result.
