How to Monitor Endeca Search Server Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise monitors the Endeca Serach server in an agent-based manner. All that is required is a single eG agent be deployed on the target host. To start monitoring the server, first you have to add the server for monitoring using the eG admin interface. The procedure to achieve this is explained in the following section.

Managing the Endeca Search

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Endeca Search server. This implies that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. Remember that the eG Enterprise automatically manages the components that are added manually. To manage a Endeca Search server, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
