fscpingPermanent link for this heading

The fscping tool provides a health check for Fabasoft Folio Backend Services. The health check is based on trying to establish a successful RPC communication. Additionally, the Fabasoft Folio HTTP Probe functionality can be executed.

In a standard installation the tool can be found here:

  • Microsoft Windows
    C:\Program Files\Fabasoft\Components\Management\Tools\fscping.exe
  • Linux
    /opt/fabasoft/bin/fscping

Example:

  • fscping -H server.comp.com -P 18070 -type coost
  • fscping -H server.comp.com -P 18071 -crit 2 -version 1127 -type mmcst
  • fscping -H server.comp.com -P 80 -type web -vdir fsc -user adm -password Folio

Usage:

fscping -H host -P port [-crit <threshold>] [-warn <threshold>]
[-version <
versionid>] [-q] [-n]
{

-type
coost|
-type
mmcst|
-type web [-
vdir <virtualdirectory>] [-user <user> -password <password>]
}

  • H
    The host name of the server running the Fabasoft Folio Service.
  • P
    The port of the Fabasoft Folio Service. The port number for COO and MMC Services can be found for example in the Fabasoft Folio Server Management.
  • crit
    If the health check cannot be completed successfully within the defined seconds, the return value will be critical (default 5 sec).
  • warn
    If the health check cannot be completed successfully within the defined seconds, the return value will be a warning (default 1 sec).
  • version
    If the tool should check an older Fabasoft Folio installation, provide the first three parts of the version number of the installation. For example if the whole version is 11.2.2.113, enter “1122”.
  • q
    No result text is displayed.
  • n
    A simple result string for example useable for Nagios is displayed.
  • type
    Possible values are coost (check COO service), mmcst (check MMC service) and web (Fabasoft Folio HTTP Probe). For the web option the virtual directory of the web service (default fsc), a user name and a password can be provided.

The exit status of the fscping tool is 0 (OK), 1 (warning) or 2 (critical).
