Email alert when server services goes down

Hi Everyone

Can you please provide step by step process on how to configure QlikView version 11 to alert a QV Admin when one of QlikView services goes down.

Is there such as way, is it possible.


Is there a third party app that does the same.

You can simply get the list of running qlikview services with

NET START | FIND "Qlikview"

You can do it separately for each service by schedule (every 5 minutes?) and sent a message with command line with vbs

Dim objMail

Set objMail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")

objMail.From = "Me <Me@Server.com>"
objMail.To = "You <You@AnotherServer.com>"
objMail.Subject = "That's a mail"
objMail.Textbody = "Hello World"
objMail.AddAttachment "C:\someFile.ext"

---8<----- You don't need this part if you have an active Outlook [Express] account -----
' Use an SMTP server
objMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
  ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2

' Name or IP of Remote SMTP Server
objMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
  ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = _
  "smtp.server.com"

' Server port (typically 25)
objMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
  ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25

objMail.Configuration.Fields.Update
----- End of SMTP usage ----->8---

objMail.Send

Set objMail=Nothing
Wscript.Quit

I use Servers Alive http://www.woodstone.nu/salive/ to monitor services and send email when down. There are a number of other third party tools that do the same thing.

Hi @rwunderlich 

I'm looking for solutions that can monitor Qlik services and set alerts in real time if they go down.

Since the solution provided above are paid, I thought maybe you have another interesting techniques or free tools that can handle this ?

Thank you
