JobScheduler can be monitored by System Monitors. Such products include e.g. HP OpenView®, Microsoft SCOM®, Nagios®, op5®, Opsview®, Zabbix® etc.
As System Monitors are restricted to check the availability and performance of a monitored service the JobScheduler provides additional functionality for System Monitors to report on individual job failure and recovery. The JobScheduler Monitoring Interface can be used with any System Monitor that provides a command line tool for passive checks.

JobScheduler provides the JobScheduler Monitoring Interface that can be used to integrate with any system monitor. This interface replaces previous product specific solutions as e.g. for Nagios.
