Hi. I am trying to incorporate monitoring of the PageGate software into Solarwinds. I have the services monitored, but is there a way I can monitor the number of pages that are queued up?

Hi,

I want to look into possible options for that, but I'm not a Solarwinds expert.

Can it monitor registry key values?

I believe it can and will certainly try whatever you recommend.

We don't currently write the pending value to the registry (or any other status values), but I think it would be easy enough for us to do.

However, before I get development people involved, can you confirm on your end that it is possible.

We would be putting the pending messages value in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NotePage\PageGate\Status\
The value name would be: Pending
The value type would be: DWORD

Try creating that key and value in the registry on your computer and see if SolarWinds can monitor changes you make manually to that value

Ashamedly my powershell abilities aren't what they should be.

Script Argument: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NotePage\PageGate\Status, DWORD

param(

[string]$reg,

[string]$Key,

$target_value

)

$reg_value = Get-ItemProperty $reg -name $Key



Write-Host "Message: '$reg' is currently set to '$reg_value'"

if ($reg_value -match "$key=$target_value") {

Write-Host "Statistic: 0"

} else {

Write-Host "Statistic: 1"

}

Exit 0

----------------------

I ran this and got a value of one.

I think you need to call it with

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NotePage\PageGate\Status, Pending, 2

where 2 is the value you are looking for

You might also want to reverse you logic in the IF statement so it returns 0 for no match and 1 for a match.

Ultimately you might also want a <= or >= in the match part, as I'm assuming you are looking for values greater or less than a setpoint value.

I don't know anything about powershell, but hopefully that will help.

Looked in registry and I cannot find that path you specified.

For your testing you will have to create that key in the registry and manually change values for testing.

PageGate doesn't currently update it, but we can add that and get you an update that will in a few days time.

I just want to be sure you can actually monitor the registry value changing with SolarWindows before I commit development time to add the feature.
