Remote Monitors

In the Remote Monitor configuration, you can specify a list of authorized servers that are permitted DNCA access to monitor failover state information, control the failover mode, or both.

A Remote Monitor is a Linux™ computer that is identified by host name or IP address that is allowed to receive failover state information and/or control a DNCA host machine that is configured for failover.

Note: This remote workstation must not be a DNCA server.

A Remote Monitor may also optionally be allowed to control failover on a DNCA host machine, including forcing failover and failback. A Unica Discover Network Capture Application configured for failover responds to heartbeats or control requests from a machine that is properly configured as a Remote Monitor.

  • After a host is authorized, the failstat utility that is installed on the host can be used to help debug failover issues.
