Server Monitor with the help of ranorex

Post by triveditejas » Wed Jul 16, 2014 6:31 am

Hi All,

we are planning to check the server status (working or down) with the help of ranorex automation tool.

we can check the server status with the help of Login and logout actions, as this is basic actions to check.

can any one suggest some another option to monitor server (whether its working fine or down)?

as we need to check the status of server with frequent time interval.
Thanks and Regards,

PIng the server, if you get a response it's up if not it's probably down

If you are just wanting to verify that a server system is up, then ping is what you want.

If it is a software service, then you may need to ping the specific port that the service is using. If that won't work, then you can probably use Microsoft's PSTools (Google it) to get the running tasks on the system to see if your service is running.

I would recommend that you use Ranorex only as a last resort. You waste more time building the test and running it than it is worth in most cases.
