A service is an IDOL component that is installed on a host with a Controller. After you add a Controller server to a cluster (see Discover Hosts for more information), you can use the Discover Services page to register individual services with IDOL Site Admin for monitoring purposes.
To register a service
Enter a directory path on the host and click the magnifying glass to scan for services. Alternatively, if the host is running Windows and the IDOL components are installed as services, click Windows Services to scan for services.
If your servers have components installed across more than one drive, you can specify multiple paths to use for service discovery rather than having to manually modify the path each time. Click + to add as many Lookup path fields as you need, then specify the directory paths. When you click the magnifying glass, IDOL Site Admin scans all the paths.
To unregister a service
After you register a service, you can click Groups to go to the Discover Groups page, where you can assign that service to a group or groups. See Work With Groups for more information.
You can also click to add a descriptive name and notes to the service.
By default, IDOL Site Admin controls services by starting and stopping the process directly. Alternatively, you can specify an init script to use.
