COM+ Status Test

This test automatically discovers all the applications on the COM+ server and reports the status of each. This test is disabled by default. To enable the test, go to the enable / disable tests page using the menu sequence : Agents -> Tests -> Enable/Disable, pick COM+ as the desired Component type, set Performance as the Test type, choose the test from the disabled tests list, and click on the < button to move the test to the ENABLED TESTS list. Finally, click the Update button.

Target of the test : A COM+ Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every COM+ server being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The host for which the test is to be configured.


If the Restart option is set to Yes, then the test will attempt to restart the applications that have stopped. Setting this flag to No will ensure that no such attempts are made by the test.


Provide a comma-separated list of COM+ applications that the test need not restart even if found not running. By default, this is set to No, indicating that, if the Restart option is set to Yes, then, by default, the test will attempt to restart all the discovered COM+ applications


Indicate how frequently the test needs to rediscover the COM+ applications. For example, specifying the value 2 here indicates that rediscovery will occur every second time this test runs. Accordingly, if the Test Period chosen is 30 seconds, then rediscovery will take place every 60 (30*2) seconds.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation
