Application response monitoring

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if Autoit would be capable of enterprise application response monitoring? My idea is the following:

1. have autoit open an application.

2. have autoit run some sort of query in the application.

3 time the query response time.

4. Send the response time to a network monitoring application (ie nagios) via SNMP.

What do you think? Would autoit have the tools to do that kind of work?

Thanks for any advice the community might have.

IMO very probably yes.

Steps 2 and 3 depend on what the application is, how you have to query it and how you measure the response.


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

An example of an application and querry is we have a home grown application that has a large of amount of user info in it. The idea would be open the application have autoit run a script that would do some general user based tasks and time the responsiveness of the application.

I've been using AutoIt in this way for a while now, and it works very well.

As far as a monitoring framework, -IMO- don't reinvent the wheel. Try something like Polymon. It already has the db structure, and all the code to "fire" various agents on a schedule to record status. I use PSTools to run my AutoIT-based "Timed activity" monitors.

It does require SQLServer2005, but you can use the free/express version for limited installations.
