In this blog, we are going to configure your system to run and monitor important services. Select the notifications that you wish to receive and set the priority for the notices.
Step 1 – Let’s go ahead and login to WHM. Here we are in the WHM interface.
Step 2- First we are going to configure the service manager to check the services that are run and then enable monitoring those services that let you know when they go down.
Scroll down to “Service Configuration” and click “service Manager”. A new interface will appear.
Step 3 – At the top of the interface our services that are always monitored under the watch daemon the system should have the appropriate services listed. You can select checkboxes to enable or disable these services. The next set of services contains the names of the system components services. The first column indicates whether the service is enabled and the next column indicates whether the services monitored.
Step4- You can toggle the enable status and monitoring status for each service with those checkboxes. If you scroll down to “Exim Mail server (on another port)” you can set the XML server to listen on a port other than port 25. That’s in case of your hosting provider locks for port 25 for security reasons.
Step 5 – Let’s go ahead and disable select the checkboxes in enable column for entropy and then scroll to the bottom and click “Save”.
The system will take a minute or two to disable the changes.
A few minutes later, you will receive a message saying service changes complete.
Step 6 – Now that we have selected the services that we want to monitor, let’s select the notifications that we wish to receive and really wish to receive.
Step 7- Scroll down to “server contacts” and select “Contact Manager”. New interface will appear that displays a table of communication types which we configure back in the basic cPanel and WHM settings setup interface and install wizard.
Step 8 – If you need to make any adjustments in that list, click the appropriate edit. First we will determine which communication type gets which alerts. This way you can have a high priority alerts.
Step 9 – Ping your pager or cell phone while the medium or lower once will ping in your email account or in AOL instant messenger if you have a database that you can post to through URL, you can sent the notifications for achieving purposes and click ‘Save’. A confirmation message will appear to send the text messages to a communication type.
Step 10 – Click the appropriate text message. Then check the appropriate account to see that you got the message or someone at the account you missed instead of your own.
Step 11 – Now let’s look at the notifications to activate an alert, select the checkbox. You can make adjustments, individual notifications with the important menu. The alert list will tell you which communication types will get those mortifications that way you know which device will run out battery power first.
Step 12 – You can activate all alerts with the checkbox at the top of the table or you can set all alerts to the same priority with the disabled, low, medium, high buttons.
Step 13 – When you are done scroll to the bottom of the interface and click ‘Save’. A confirmation message will appear.
