This article presents information on how XOS application monitoring determines if an application is UP or DOWN and provides commands to obtain additional information.N/A
To describe some aspects of XOS application monitoring and provide commands to obtain additional information about the state of the application.
Application Monitoring for Check Point VSX R65/R67/R68/R75.40VS/R76/R77
Check Point VSX R65/R67/R68
application is reported as UP if
cpd and fwd processes are running
VSX is ready
HA is either ready or disabled
Check Point VSX R75.40VS/ R76/R77 adds check for
HA state is calculated by running the Check Point programs
cphaprob as follows:
cpprod_util FwIsHighAvail -- returns
"1" if HA is
enabled cphaprob syncnewver -- returns
"sync new ver working" if HA is
VSX state is determined by presence of file
/var/lock/subsys/vsx. This file is created by
$FWDIR/bin/syncready after FULL sync is done.
If the application is not declared as UP, you can run the
app_status tool from the VSX VAP root user level to obtain more information.
To access the VSX VAP root user level
From the Crossbeam CLI, open a Unix prompt and rsh to the VAP.
# unix su # rsh <vap_name>
Run the following command:
# /crossbeam/apps/app_status -v
If the application is fully UP:
# cpd is RUNNING fwd is RUNNING vsx is READY HA is READY # Reporting application state: UP
or for VSX R75.40VS/R76/R77:
cpd is RUNNING
fwd is RUNNING
fwk is RUNNING
VSX is READY
HA is READY
Reporting application state: UP
If one or more modules is not ready or running:
# cpd is RUNNING fwd is RUNNING vsx is NOT READY HA is NOT READY
Reporting application state: DOWN #
identify the aspects that are not running, and investigate further, depending on the failing module. A good place to start might be in Checkpoint daemon's log files on the VAP member, focusing on time when the application down alarm was generated:
