Prognosis Self Monitoring - Free Customer Extended Solution

Community Manager

Dear IR Customers,


For several years now our Support team has been providing a free extension to Prognosis which allows you to ensure your Prognosis environments are healthy. Up until now, we have supplied this on request and with a 30-minute session to install and introduce you to the features. To reach a larger audience we have created a series of instructional videos that will now make it easy for you to deploy and use as a self-service solution.


What is “Prognosis Self Monitoring”?

Prognosis Self Monitoring is an addon for Prognosis that primarily uses core records for most of the actions and gives you both alerting and an easy-to-understand dashboard designed to reveal common problems within all your Prognosis servers. It is a single installation at top manager node and geared toward both detecting problems and giving you solutions. It is a free solution built by the IR Support team to help you uncover issues that will prevent full value from the product.


How easy is this to install?

The installation process involves 5 main actions.

1. Unzipping the pathed package from the Prognosis directory

2. Creating a new nodegroup entry called “Prognosis Servers”

3. Creating two supporting prompt entries

4. Add in 3 new Extractor Configuration entries

5. Restarting the Prognosis Service

Below is a step-by-step video to guide you to complete all the above within 3-10 minutes.
