monitoring windows processes
We're heading down the path of doing a failover configuration with one of our F5s.
We use SAP and it uses an output management system (OMS). Unfortunatley, the nature of doing this is that it must be active/passive. SAP can only work with a specific instance of an OMS at a time (can't load balance).
Besides failing over if the primary OMS system (Windows 2008) is down, we'd also like to failover if any of a set of a half dozen "core" processes on it fail.
Has anyone ever done something similar?
