We have a customer who wants to monitor when a server gets switched on. Is there a probe or configuration that can be used to do this without raising any other alarms except when the server is switched back on?
If the monitored server is monitored by the vmware or xen_desktop probe then there is a powerstate metric that you can use for this
If the monitored server is physical or not monitored by vmware or xen_desktop then there is no probe that will generate this but there is a workarround
utility allows you to generate an alarm via a batch file.
create the batch file and configure the server to run this on startup.
This will create the desired alarm
