Overview
A monitoring robot is supplied with WINDEV, WEBDEV and WINDEV Mobile. This robot is used to check whether an application or a server operates properly. If the monitored element fails (hardware failure, shutdown of the Internet link, shutdown of the system, and so on), the robot starts the alerts that have been defined.
Principle
Made of three executables started on different computers, the monitoring robot is used to run different tests: Internet test, FTP server test, network test, ...
If problems occur when running a test, different methods can be used by the monitoring robot to inform you:
  • Message sent to the persons specified in the messaging software (WDBal).
  • Email sent to the specified addresses.
  • Message sent to a specific application.
  • Using a control screen (visual and/or sound message).
  • Starting a WLanguage procedure.
  • Running another program.
How to install the monitoring robot?
To use the monitoring robot, you must install the different programs of the monitoring robot. The setup pack (WX220PACKROBOT.EXE) is available in the "Install\Robot" sub-directory of the product used.
The different modules must be installed according to the following order:
  1. Installing the monitoring robot. The monitoring robot must be installed on a computer that will never be switched off.
  2. Installing the counter-robot if necessary. The counter-robot is an additional security. It is used to check whether the monitoring robot operates properly.
  3. Installing the monitor. The monitor can be installed on several computers. The monitor is used to configure the different tests run by the monitoring robot.
Notes:
  • If names of domain are used, the three programs must be installed on the same domain.
  • The three programs must be installed on the same local network.
