Monitoring Jive HTTPD

The jive-httpd service supports a "status" command issued to the standard init script located at "/etc/init.d/jive-httpd". An example of checking the serivce status as the root user:

[root@biodome:~]$ /etc/init.d/jive-httpd status
JIVE_HOME set to /usr/local/jive
Running: 2393 (2396, 2397)

In the above example, the parent process of the jive-httpd system daemon is 2393, with child processes of 2396 and 2397.

In addition to the status script, it is possible to check the status of the jive-httpd daemon using standard Unix commands. For example, the following ps command will list all jive-httpd processes running on the host:

[root@biodome:~]$ ps -ef | grep jive-httpd | grep -v grep
root      2393     1  0 14:41 ?        00:00:00 /usr/local/jive/httpd/bin/jive-httpd -f /usr/local/jive/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf -k start
jive      2395  2393  0 14:41 ?        00:00:00 /usr/local/jive/httpd/bin/jive-httpd -f /usr/local/jive/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf -k start
jive      2396  2393  0 14:41 ?        00:00:00 /usr/local/jive/httpd/bin/jive-httpd -f /usr/local/jive/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf -k start

jive      2399  2393  0 14:41 ?        00:00:00 /usr/local/jive/httpd/bin/jive-httpd -f /usr/local/jive/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf -k start
