Is there is any way to easily generate a list of Nimsoft robots that are experiencing communication errors? Is there some script I can run or any function that can allow me generate it?
You could use the nas Auto operator to EMAIL the alarm when you receive it: "Max. restarts reached for probe 'spooler' (command = spooler)"
Use a message filter such as: /.*Max. restarts reached.*/
or use logmon to parse the controller.log file and when it matches on *error*, EMAIL an alarm message to whoever is on call, etc.
To generate a list you can use the ProbeReport in the bin directory
...\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\bin
and sort on the Active (Yes/No) column and select the probes that are down and copy the list to the clipboard.
We don't have an out of the box probe that covers this request.
You can either try to create a script/custom probe to do something like this via the nas or solicit the help of Nimsoft Professional Services or one of our Placement Partners to write one. I would also suggest that you post a comment to the CA Community at https://communities.ca.com/community/ca-infrastructure-management to see if someone has already written such a script that you can re-use.
