ZoneStatus Test

This test tracks the overall status of the zones by reporting how many zones have been configured on the Solaris virtual server, how many have been registered, how many were newly added/removed, etc.

Target of the test : A Solaris virtual server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the Solaris virtual server being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed

Host

The host for which the test is to be configured.

Port

The port number at which the specified host listens. By default, the port is NULL.

Connect Using

By default, this parameter is set to sudo. This indicates that, by default, this test uses the sudo command to connect to the Solaris virtual server and pull out metrics. If you want the test to use the pfexec command instead, select the pfexec option from the Connect Using drop-down.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Registered zones

Indicates the total number of zones that have been registered with the Solaris virtual server.

Number

To view the list of registered zone, click on the diagnosis icon against this measure.

Added zones:

Indicates the number of zones that were newly added with the Solaris virtual server during the last measurement period.

Number

 

Removed zones

Indicates the number of zones that were removed from the Solaris virtual server during the last measurement period.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, provides the details of the removed zones.

Running zones

Indicates the number of zones that are currently running on the Solaris virtual server.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, provides the details of the zones that are running.

Configured zones

Indicates the number of zones that are currently configured with the Solaris virtual server.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, provides the details of the configured zones.

Installed_zones

Indicates the number of zones that are currently intalled on the Solaris virtual server.

 

The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, provides the details of the installed zones.

The detailed diagnosis of the Running zones measure, if enabled, provides the IP addresses of the zones, the zone names, and the version of Solaris they are executing on (see Figure 6).
