How to send mail alert when server is down?

Hi All,

Sometimes it happens that qlikview server is down or any qlikview distribution service is paused becuase of which the reports are not reloaded/refreshed.

I came to know when i cheked the reload time of qvw on server or on access point.

Is there any way to send an mail alert when the server is down to respective recipients who will help in the issue.

Please assist..

QlikView itself cannot monitor / alert on QlikView server down or any QlikView distribution service is paused / down.

But such monitors / alerts are a part of normal IT Administration / Operations and can done with PowerShell, VB & other things.  I'd suggest contacting whoever administers your Windows Servers.

If you Google something like Windows server down alert script you'll get plenty of hits.

As Bill says, you will need to do this outside of QV.  We use a simple vbs script that checks the last modified time of a qvw file. The script is run every minute by Windows Task Scheduler.
