SAS Web Server Monitoring & Management

The vfws plugin discovers a SAS Web Server installation and creates a series of resources to reflect it. The plugin obtains runtime information, such as performance metrics, status, configuration, and current capacity using the open source mod_bmx module to access the SAS Web Server framework.

Auto-Discover your your SAS Web Server installation, as well as Virtual Hosts
Monitor every metric, log, and configuration for the SAS Web Server installation, as well as Virtual Hosts
Identify problem resources with automatic baselines for every metric
Control all your SAS Web Server resources on-demand, on schedule, or in response to alerts
Alert on any measurement, log, or security event in your SAS Web Server environment

The BMX framework exposes the SAS Web Server through an HTTP endpont. mod_bmx uses two data providers to obtain metrics: mod_bmx_status and mod_bmx_vhost, respectively.

A server instance is considered available if it is found in the process table.

A virtual host is considered available if mod_bmx_vhost returns metrics for it.
