How does eG Enterprise Monitor PostgreSQL Server?

eG Enterprise employs agent-based or agentless techniques to monitor the PostgreSQL server. A eG agent periodically checks the status of critical database operations and proactively report problems.

Managing the PostgreSQL Server

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the PostgreSQL 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 PostgreSQL Server component, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the PostgreSQL component. You need to manually add the server using the COMPONENTS page (see Figure 1) that appears when the Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence is followed. Remember that components manually added are managed automatically.

  3. Specify the Host IP and the Nick name of the Oracle Cluster in Figure 1. The Port number will be set as 5432 by default. If the server is listening on a different port, then override this settings.
  4. Then, click the Add button to register the changes.
  5. When you attempt to sign out, a list of unconfigured tests appears (see Figure 2).
