How to Monitor GroupWise Internet Agent (GWIA) Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise  monitors the GroupWise component in an agentless manner. All that is required for this is a single eG agent  on any remote Windows host in the environment. This agent is capable of monitoring the GroupWise component via SNMP. Before attempting to monitor the GroupWise application, ensure that it is SNMP-enabled.

Once you SNMP-enable the components and feed the eG Enterprise system with the SNMP port and community string, the eG agent can easily contact the SNMP MIB of GroupWise to extract the measures of interest. What more, these monitoring models do not even require an agent to be installed on the monitored system. If a target server/device supports the HOST-RESOURCES MIB, then eG Enterprise can provide in-depth insights into the performance of those targets in a non-intrusive, agentless manner.

The eG Enterprise offers two different component types to monitor GroupWise running on Novell Netware and Windows operating systems. In the eG Enterprise system, the GWIA component should be managed either as “Groupwise Internet - Netware” or “Groupwise Internet - Win”, based on the OS (i.e. Netware or Windows) that it executes on.

The broad steps for monitoring the server using eG Enterprise are as follows:
