This section provides general instructions for creating a service in vRealize Hyperic.

There are two types of platform services in vRealize Hyperic:

  • System services local to an operating system platform, such as CPUs, network interfaces, filesystems, and so on. Most local service are auto-discovered by the system plugin.

  • Remote services that the vRealize Hyperic agent monitors over the network, such as HTTP, FTP, DNS, and other services using a supported protocol. Because such services are monitored by a remote agent, they cannot be auto-discovered. For network services, you manually configure platform service on the platform running the vRealize Hyperic agent that will monitor the service.
