Site Monitoring

Choosing a program to run

Scheduler - External Work

Site Vigil can be used to run any external program. This could be another monitoring tool but can just as easily be a housekeeping application such as disk checking or backup.

It will run the program with the parameters specified and raise an alert if the exit code is not the one specified for its successful completion.

You can choose to run the external work as a visible window or as a hidden (invisible) window.

In addition you can choose how long the work is expected to take, if this time is exceeded then an alert is


This feature greatly enhances Site Vigil's applicability. You only need one scheduling application to run all the tasks you need to do.

Each external program must be associated with a 'monitor' but you can specify that no monitoring actions are carried out when the site is added.
