Active Script (Active)
The Active Script monitor allows you write either VBScript or JScript code to perform specific customized checks on a device. If the script returns an error code, the monitor is considered Down.
Provide a unique name and description for the monitor, then configure the following:
- . Enable this option to have the monitor appear in Device Properties. If enabled, clicking from the device management actions menu within the Device Properties interface adds the monitor to the selected device if the applicable protocol or service is active on that device.
- . Enter the length of time WhatsUp Gold attempts to connect to the selected device. When the specified time is exceeded without connecting, a timeout occurs and WhatsUp Gold stops trying to connect to the server. This is considered a failed connection.
- . Use the drop-down control provided to indicate if the script will utilize a direct data access or isolated process execution model.
- . Select either VBScript or JScript, then enter the actual script code for the monitor to run.
