Monitoring NVIDIA License Server

To provide such complete monitoring, eG Enterprise embeds an exclusive NVIDIA License server monitoring model (see Figure 1).

Figure 1 : The layer model of a NVDIA license server

Every layer of this model is mapped to a wide variety of tests that keep a constant check on health and every operational aspect of the license server and report its status. The performance metrics reported by the tests will instantly answer the following queries:

  • Is the connection established between the target license server and the database success?

  • Is security enabled for the target license server?

  • Is the HTTP authentication enabled for the target license server?

  • Is any license type over-utilized?

  • How many licenses are available for use in each license type?

  • Are over-draft licenses of any license type in use?

  • How many licenses are reserved for specific clients?

The sections to come will discuss the NVIDIA License layer and the tests mapped to it, as the remaining layers have already been dealt with in the Monitoring Unix and Windows Servers document.
