Service Category Status Test

If the Node Health test reveals that a node is in an unhealthy state currently, administrators may want to instantly know which service running in that node is responsible for the node’s poor health. The Service Category Status test reveals this. This test monitors the current state of each service running in a specific node and accurately points to those services that are in an abnormal state presently.

Target of the test : A SAP BOBI Node

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of measures for the monitored node.
