edirmon is a tool designed to provide nwmon.nlm functionality for eDirectory on linux. It collects information, evaluates eDirectory health based on the information, and places the information in its data logs.
edirmon can be run in interactive mode (with a screen showing data and health) or in daemon mode where it only logs information and health. The data logs are placed in the configured edirmon data directory. Program information and changes in health are sent to the system logger for processing. You can also optionally create an html health screen (edirmon does not contain a web server).
edirmon mimics nwmon in functionality and output.
Install the RPM.
edirmon can pretty much run out of the box if eDirectory is installed using the default paths. The only setup that has to occur after installing the rpm is supplying credentials to use when pulling iMonitor data in /etc/opt/novell/edirmon/conf/secret. You may also want to make changes to /etc/opt/novell/edirmon/conf/edirmon.conf, depending on your setup.
All program information is sent to the system logger for processing, so it is possible for the sysadmin to route information based on the syslog configuration. This allows edirmon to integrate with existing infrastructure for centralized logging or alerting.
All messages are sent as LOG_USER facility.
Program debug messages are LOG_DEBUG level.
Health status changes to HEALTHY are LOG_INFO level.
Health status changes to SUSPECT are LOG_WARNING level.
Health status changes to UNHEALTHY are LOG_ERR level.
