I am trying to configure Pulseway on my Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS machine, but I'm having issues getting it to recognise systemd services.
The services I want to monitor are smbd, plexmediaserver and clamav-freshclam. Regardless of what configuration I use, none of these services are even recognised by Pulseway let alone monitored. I have also tried setting each service as "NONE", "UPSTART" and "SYSVINIT" but nothing seems to work.
The strange part is that ssh is monitored despite the fact that it's configuration is identical to the others.
Here is a screenshot of my configuration:
Can someone please help me out here? Is there something I'm missing?
EDIT: Never mind. It suddenly started working after I posted this.
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,
Hi. I have a CentOS machine that I've been trying to get pulseway working on. I could not find anyone having the same problem.
I have successfully installed pulseway, or at least the system thinks so. I edited the config file and removed the sample text from the name. However, when I attempt to start pulseway, the terminal gives me no indication of success or failure. However, when I check the systemctl logs, it claims that pulseway failed to start because of a missing file. I searched for the file, and it was indeed there. Can anyone help me with this?
Here's what it says:
"delta systemd: Failed at step EXEC spawning /usr/sbin/pulsewayd: No such file or directory"
***This problem has been solved, I was unaware that my server was x64 based***
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.
