Qpid Ports Test

Ports provide TCP/IP connectivity for messaging and management. A port is defined to use a protocol. This can be an AMQP protocol for messaging or HTTP for management. A port is defined to have one or more transports. A transport can either be plain (TCP) or SSL (TLS). When SSL is in use, the port can be configured to accept or require client authentication. Any number of ports defined to use AMQP or HTTP protocols can be defined. Ports can only be managed by the HTTP management channel. This test helps the administrators to monitor whether/not the current state of the Port is active, ensuring that there is a stable TCP/IP connectivity for messaging.

Target of the test : Apache Qpid Java Broker

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each Port in the target Apache Qpid Java Broker.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The IP address of the target server that is being monitored.

Port

The port number through which the Apache Qpid Java Broker communicates. The default port is 8080.

Username

By default, the eG agent executes REST APIs on the target component to collect the required metrics. For the eG agent to execute the REST APIs, a user with monitoring privilege is required. Specify the name of such a user in this text box.

Password

Specify the password corresponding to the user mentioned in the Username text box here.

Confirm Password

Confirm the password by retyping it here.

SSL

By default, the SSL flag is set to No, indicating that the target Apache Qpid Java Broker is not SSL-enabled by default. To enable the test to connect to an SSL-enabled Apache Qpid Java Broker, set the SSL flag to Yes.

Timeout

Specify the duration (in seconds) within which the query executed by this test should time out in this text box.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability.
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
