Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you wish Monitoring Studio to automatically pause the monitoring of sub-containers and their dependencies when one or more files are not present.

What does it fix?

A new configuration variable, MASAI/SENTRY8/<sub-container ID>/existenceFiles, was added to extend signature files to sub-containers.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following files to the $PATROL_HOME/lib/psl or %PATROL_HOME%\lib\psl directory on the server where the PATROL Agent runs:
    • SW_sentry_applications.lib
    • SW_sentry_generic.lib
  2. Restart the PATROL Agent for the patch to take effect. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
  3. Provide the name and full path of all the signature files of the sub-containers to be considered in the MASAI/SENTRY8/<sub-container ID>/existenceFiles variable. The list must be comma-delimited.

    Important: There is no dialog box to add, remove, or check the list of signature files for sub-containers. If one or more files set is present or if the list is empty, the sub-container and its dependencies will be monitored as usual. If no file is present, the monitoring will be paused.
