  • checking if remote plugins are connected

    spud is there a way to check to see if remote connected plugins like Kinect are connected to hs3? I have one system, and I can't figure out what is doing it but the command window with kinect running keeps getting killed. So I thought it would be nice if I could make an event that would run and tell me when a remote instance connects and when it is not connected anymore. I tried the easytrigger "plugin is running and plugin is not running" but neither will work because those kinect instances show up as "loaded remotely"



    any ideas?

    Most plugins support some form of browser (http) interface. Polling this with a lack of response indicating the plugin is down may work. Just depends on the failure mode of the plugin.

    In some of mine I do ticket punches and wrap around monitoring. I have also used scheduled daily restart. In the past I have used Guardian Angel to monitor and typically restart when failure detected. On Linux I more often use systemctl to start and then restart if application fails.

      Thanks for the ideas Michael! I ended up solving this using Jon's log monitor. so far it is working like I was wanting.
