Monitoring Machine Agent

Monitoring Machine Agent

Hi Admins,


Good Day!


Just want to ask if what are the possible ways to monitor the controller itself? Is there available documentations or reference to monitor the machine agent for it to be available and has no downtime? Below are we think of possible options, please advise if we the appD has these.


1. Using AppD controller, set Health Rule for Machine Agent Availability Metric and if MA goes down then trigger script to start another machine agent. Or

2. Fetch Machine Agent Availability Metric using Rest API and start MA on another server Or

3. Monitor Machine Agent process running on 1st Server from 2nd server via scripts (Similar to Controller HA watchdog) 


Thank you in advance!
