SystemMonitorNotification / Notification / NotificationObjects / JobChain
Error messages
Recovery messages
SystemMonitorNotification / Notification / NotificationObjects / Job

Configuration Editor

We recommend that the XML Editor is used generate monitoring configuration objects. This editor automatically uses an XSD Schema to generate configuration suggestions and validate configurations, and its use is intended to provide a significant reduction in the time required to develop and test a configuration.

XSD Schema locations

Configuration

JobScheduler

Activation of Monitoring Interface 

Note: 

  • JobScheduler releases before 1.13.1
    • SystemMonitorNotification_<MonitorSystem>.xml file(s) (see below) must be configured before activtion.
  • JobScheduler releases starting from 1.13.1
    • SystemMonitorNotification_<MonitorSystem>.xml file(s) (see below) must be configured before activtion or
    • The NOTIFICATION configuration was forwarded by the Joc Cockpit to the respective JobScheduler Master.

SystemMonitorNotification files

JobScheduler releases before 1.13.1

Location: <scheduler_data>/config/notification

FileDescription
SystemMonitorNotification_v1.0.xsd

The XML Schema file defines which values are allowed in your XML files for the JobScheduler monitoring.

That means that to configure the JobScheduler objects you want to monitor and the System Monitor you just have to modify your SystemMonitorNotification_<MonitorSystem>.xml files but not the XML schema file.

SystemMonitorNotification_<MonitorSystem>.xml

 Configuration file for each System Monitor.

  • Specifies the delivery way to System Monitor.
  • Specifies notification for error or success conditions
  • Specifies notification to measure performance of JobScheduler objects
 

SystemMonitorNotificationTimers.xml

Configuration file for all System Monitors.

  • Specifies notification to measure performance of JobScheduler objects

This file is optional and contains the definitions of the SystemMonitorNotification / Timer elements.

JobScheduler releases starting from 1.13.1

Note: Usage of the configuration files in the <scheduler_data>/config/notification folder has been deprecated.

Location:  <scheduler_data>/config/live/sos/.configuration/notification

FileDescription
SystemMonitorNotification_v1.0.xsd

The XML Schema file defines which values are allowed in your XML files for the JobScheduler monitoring.

notification.xml

 Configuration file for System Monitors:

  • Specifies the delivery way to System Monitor.
  • Specifies notification for error or success conditions
  • Specifies notification to measure performance of JobScheduler objects
  • this file is an automatically generated file and will be overridden when the configuration is deployed




SystemMonitorNotification Elements

The configuration element descriptions are organized into the following major categories:

ElementElement descriptionDescription
SystemMonitorNotificationTop Level ElementConfiguration for notifications to be sent to a system monitor.
NotificationRequired, multiple use allowed inside the SystemMonitorNotification elementSpecifies a system monitor notification that includes a command line invocation and the JobScheduler objects.
TimerOptional or multiple use allowed inside the SystemMonitorNotification elementPerformance measurement definition.
SystemMonitorNotification

JITL-230 - Getting issue details... STATUS

SystemMonitorNotification supports the following attributes:

AttributeJobScheduler releaseUsageDescription
system_idbefore 1.13.1required

System Monitor identifier.

See JobScheduler - Job Chains customization 

Note:

  • attribute system_id 
    • in case of the SystemMonitorNotificationTimers.xml the value of this attribute is not important and can have any value.

      • e.g.: timers


starting from 1.13.1required
  • If a configuration is created by JOC Cockpit the value of the attribute system_id will be ignored.
    • The SystemNotifier job chain will use MonitorSystem as identifier instead.
Example
<SystemMonitorNotification system_id="op5">
...


SystemMonitorNotification / Notification

Notification supports the following attributes:

AttributeUsageDescription
nameoptionalNotification description

 

Example
...
<Notification name="Mail: on failed job">
...

 

The following elements may be nested inside a Notification element:

ElementElement descriptionDescription
NotificationMonitorRequired, only once inside the Notification elementSpecifies the System Monitor interface that is being used for messages: either by a Plug-in Interface or by command line invocation
NotificationObjectsRequired, only once inside the Notification elementSpecifies the Job Chain and the Timer definitions
SystemMonitorNotification / Notification / NotificationMonitor

The JobScheduler Interface Monitor can be used to monitor the messages for the 3 use cases:

  • error case
    • an error has occured / been recovered during a job chain / job execution
      • the service_name_on_error setting is responsible for this monitoring case
  • success case
    • a job chain / job ends succesfully
      • the service_name_on_success setting is responsible for this monitoring case
  • performance check (see Timer)
    • usually the service_name_on_error setting is responsible for this monitoring case but the performance check will also work if only the service_name_on_success setting has been defined.


In addition, the service_name_on_error / service_name_on_success attributes have the following meaning:

  • NotificationInterface
    • The setting must match the corresponding service name in the System Monitor such as Nagios or op5.
  • NotificationCommand
    • Freely selectable, has no further meaning than to identify a notification.
  • NotificationMail
    • Freely selectable, has no further meaning than to identify a notification.
  • NotificationJMS
    • The setting must match the corresponding queue/topic name in the JMS Server.

Note:

  • attributes service_name_on_error and service_name_on_success
    • at least one of these attributes must be configured
    • both attributes can be configured together
    •  the use of this settings must be unique within one SystemNotification

NotificationMonitor supports the following attributes:

AttributeUsageDescription
service_name_on_errorOptional

See explanation above.

service_name_on_successOptional

See explanation above.

service_status_on_errorOptional

This setting specifies the service status code for error messages.

Default: CRITICAL

service_status_on_successOptional

This setting specifies the service status code for success messages

Default: OK

Example
<!-- Example 
op5 NSCA Status: 
0 - OK 
1 - WARNING 
2 - CRITICAL 
3 - UNKNOWN --> 
... 
<!-- Sending occurred errors as CRITICAL (default) --> 
<NotificationMonitor service_name_on_error="JobScheduler Monitoring Errors"> 
... 
<!-- Sending occurred errors as WARNING --> 
<NotificationMonitor service_name_on_error="JobScheduler Monitoring Errors" service_status_on_error="1"> 
...

One of the following elements must be nested inside a NotificationMonitor element:

ElementElement descriptionDescription
NotificationInterfaceOptional or only once inside the NotificationMonitor elementNSCA plug-in Interface to be executed for System Monitor notification

monitor_passwordOptional

This setting specifies the password

  • for NSCA - password configured in the ncsa.cfg file.
monitor_connection_timeoutOptional

This setting specifies the connection timeout in ms.

Default: 5000

monitor_response_timeoutOptionalThis setting specifies the response timeout in ms.
monitor_encryptionOptional

This setting specifies that the communication with the System Monitor is encrypted. By default no encryption is used.

  • NONE             - no encryption
  • XOR            - XOR encryption
  • TRIPLE_DES - use of triple des algorithm for encryption
service_hostRequiredThis setting specifies the name of the host that executes the passive check. The name must match the corresponding setting in the System Monitor.
pluginOptional

Default:

    • JobScheduler releases before 1.11

      • com.sos.scheduler.notification.plugins.notifier.SystemNotifierSendNscaPlugin
    • JobScheduler releases starting from 1.11

      • com.sos.jitl.notification.plugins.notifier.SystemNotifierSendNscaPlugin

See : Message, Examples

Example
...
<NotificationInterface monitor_host="monitor_host" monitor_port="5667" monitor_encryption="XOR" service_host="service_host"><![CDATA[
scheduler id=${MON_N_SCHEDULER_ID}, history id=${MON_N_ORDER_HISTORY_ID}, job_chain=${MON_N_JOB_CHAIN_NAME}(${MON_N_ORDER_ID}), step =${MON_N_ORDER_STEP_STATE}, error=${MON_N_ERROR_TEXT}
]]></NotificationInterface>
...

System Monitor: Opsview

In case you are using Opsview as the monitoring tool, the plugin used in NotificationInterface will not work, since Opsview supports 20 types of encryption, which are not supported by this plugin. You could only use it in case you use no encryption (type: NONE) and that will work.

Instead, you should use the XML element NotificationCommand and indicate there the exact command to send passive checks to your Opsview from a remote machine (see example for op5 or example for zabbix).

JobScheduler - Store parameters to database

The Monitoring Interface provide functionality to store the job/order parameters of the specific jobs into database (table SCHEDULER_MON_RESULTS).

See explanation : Calculation

JobScheduler - Job Chains

The following job chains are provided and should be configured accordingly:

sos / notification / CheckHistory (JobScheduler releases before 1.11)

See <scheduler_install>/jobs/JobSchedulerNotificationCheckHistoryJob.xml

  • This is the main job that analyze the JobScheduler history tables und write results into the notification tables.
    • Job read all history entries for the job chains, configured in the SystemMonitorNotification XML files.
    • Job execute the performance checks for the defined Timers
  • Order Check
    • configure repeat interval for order run time, e.g. every two minutes.

sos / notification / CheckHistory (JobScheduler releases starting from 1.11)

  • Job chain removed
  • Set param sos.use_notification true (config/scheduler.xml)

JobScheduler version 1.11.x config/scheduler.xml
...
<spooler>
	<config ...>
		<params>
			...
			<param name="sos.use_notification" value="true"/>
		...
</spooler>


sos / notification / SystemNotifier

See <scheduler_install>/jobs/JobSchedulerNotificationSystemNotifierJob.xml

  • Sends notifications to a specific System Monitor.
  • Order MonitorSystem
    • JobScheduler releases before 1.11
      • configures a repeat interval for the order run time that is not less than the interval that has been chosen for triggering the job chain sos/notification/CheckHistory

sos / notification / CleanupNotifications

See <scheduler_install>/jobs/JobSchedulerNotificationCleanupNotificationsJob.xml

  • Removes notifications that have expired. 
  • Order Cleanup
    • configure start time for order run time, e.g. 24:00

sos / notification / ResetNotifications

See <scheduler_install>/jobs/JobSchedulerNotificationResetNotificationsJob.xml

  • Some System Monitors may provide an "acknowledge" operation, that signaling has known problem.
  • Should an "acknowledge" operation have been performed for a specific service in the System Monitor then job chain ResetNotifications would stop JobScheduler from sending notifications for that service for errors that have already occurred.
  • Do not configure the order run time for this job chain, as job chain will be triggered by the System Monitor's "acknowledge" operation via add_order XML command.
Examples
Example ResetNotifications <add_order> XML command

The following example shows the XML command sent from a monitoring system to the JobScheduler to call the sos/notification/ResetNotifications job chain and set the relevant service name as acknowledged.

ResetNotifications OP5 add_order
<add_order  job_chain   ="sos/notification/ResetNotifications"
            id          ="op5 JobScheduler Monitoring Error acknowledgement"
            title       ="op5 JobScheduler Monitoring Error acknowledgement">
    <params>
        <param name="service_name"  value="JobScheduler Monitoring Error" />
        <param name="system_id"     value="op5"/>
        <param name="operation"     value="acknowledge" />
     </params>
</add_order>

Key to the above code:

ElementAttributeValue
Description
add_order


XML Command to add the new order to the specified job chain on the JobScheduler.

job_chainsos/notification/ResetNotifications
Job chain path must correspond with the path of the ResetNotifications job chain installed on the JobScheduler.

id

Order identifier.

title

Order title.
param


3 following parameters must be set:

nameservice_name
JobScheduler Monitoring Error
Relevant service name to set all already occured service errors in JobScheduler Interface Monitor as acknowledged.

namesystem_idop5

System identification.

Corresponds with SystemMonitorNotification/@system_id setting in the  SystemMonitorNotification_<MonitorSystem>.xml configuration file.

Example ResetNotifications <add_order> XML command via Perl script for op5 monitor system

This example shows the integration of a Perl script into op5 monitor system that automatically sends the above XML command to the JobScheduler sos/notification/ResetNotifications job chain.

The "Acknowledgment" on the op5 Monitor side works as follows:

  1. Contact "acknowledgment" + Event Handler:
    • it first of all requires a contact, that receives the Notifications in the same way as the other contacts. However, an event notification for this contact is not received via Mail but an Event Handler, i.e.  an XML command will be executed instead of a mail being received. (Please see the next point, Notification Command.)
  2. The "svc_notify_ack_handle" Notification Command:
    • this command will always be executed for the services that are specified for the contact. This command is executed when the service status changes (for example, by a change from OK to Critical or Acknowledgment of an Error).
    • The command executes a check_acknowledge.pl script.
  3. The check_acknowledge.pl Script (see the example below): this script is executed by the command and first of all checks whether the command is a response to an Acknowledgment:
    • If the command is not a response to an Acknowledgment: then nothing happens
    • If the command is a response to an Acknowledgment      : then the script causes the JobScheduler to be contacted and sent am XML query, that instructs the JobScheduler to start a specific job chain (the sos/notification/ResetNotifications chain)

JobScheduler - Job Chains customization

The default name of the monitor system used in the configuration files and stored in the JobScheduler database is "MonitorSystem".

The default configuration can be changed to allow better customization of the monitoring systems used.

Example customization for the op5 system monitor:

  • <scheduler_install>/config/notification/SystemMonitorNotification_MonitorSystem.xml
    • rename this file to  SystemMonitorNotification_op5.xml
    • set system_id attribute to op5
      • e.g. <SystemMonitorNotification system_id="op5">
  • <scheduler_install>/config/live/sos/notification/SystemNotifier,MonitorSystem.order.xml
    • rename this file to SystemNotifier,op5.order.xml
    • set system_configuration_file attribute to SystemMonitorNotification_op5.xml
      • e.g. <param name="system_configuration_file" value="config/notification/SystemMonitorNotification_op5.xml"/>
  •  <scheduler_install>/config/live/sos/notification/ResetNotifications,AcknowledgeMonitorSystem.order.xml
    • rename this file to ResetNotifications,Acknowledgeop5.order.xml
    • set system_id attribute to op5
      • e.g. <param name="system_id" value="op5"/>

JobScheduler - Cluster

See Cluster Operation

In case of Cluster Operation please modify the job_chain element definition for all notification job chain files

  • add distributed="yes" attribute.
    • e.g: <job_chain distributed="yes" ...
  • remove orders_recoverable="no" attribute if exists

Following job chain files must be modified in the notification directory <scheduler_install>/config/live/sos/notification/:

  • CheckHistory.job_chain.xml
  • CleanupNotifications.job_chain.xml
  • ResetNotifications.job_chain.xml
  • SystemNotifier.job_chain.xml

Use Cases

Workflow Execution takes too long

Initial Situation

A Job Chain is triggered and it could not end, it hang in a step, taking longer than expected.

Problem

Execution time was too long

Handling

A timer for this Job Chain has been set and the System Monitor notified about it. The expiration times for the Job Chains are configured with enough time for processing. This is usually used for cases where the Job Chain could hang in a specific step.

Configuration

SFTP connection refused

Initial Situation

Consider a Job Chain that uses SFTP for transferring files. You have a setback configured in this step of the Job Chain, so that if the connection to the SFTP server fails, this step is retried after a specified time.

Problem

The SFTP server is not available anymore.

Handling

The System Monitor will be notified to the service related to the Job Chain with the message error. However, you don't want to have repeated notifications for a Job Chain when is an external factor, the connection to the SFTP Server, is producing the error.

Configuration

Thresholds

Initial Situation

Consider the situation where a workflow has to be executed successfully a specific number of times before a specific point in time. This means that a specific value has to be monitored in order to determine if this quote was reached.

Handling

A new History service is configured, so that the workflow executions (Job Chains in the JobScheduler vocabulary) send the information that they have been successfully executed to the System Monitor.

Configuration

Acknowledgment

Initial Situation

An alert for a Service has been sent to the System Monitor, which has sent a Mail to the Service Desk (Support Team) notifying them about the alert.

Handling

The problem is known to the Service Desk and they "acknowledge" the problem. The acknowledgment will cause the JobScheduler to be notified not to send any more notifications for this Service to the System Monitor until the Service has been recovered.

Configuration


Recoverable Errors

Initial Situation

You have a setback configured in one of the steps of the Job Chain, so that if the step execution fails, this step is retried after a specified time.

Problem

The step has ended with an error, but recovered after setback

Handling

If the error message has been sent to the System Monitor, in case of error recovery JobScheduler will automatically sent the recovery message on the same service with the same error message and the prefix RECOVERED.
