The Veritas High Availability tab lets you define and modify settings that control application monitoring with Cluster Server(VCS). You can define the settings on a per application basis. The settings apply to all systems in a VCS cluster where the application is configured for monitoring.
The following settings are available:
This setting defines the number of seconds that VCS must wait for the application to start or stop, after initiating the operation.
When you click the Start Application or Stop Application links in the Veritas High Availability tab, VCS initiates an application start or stop, respectively. If the application does not respond within the stipulated time, the tab displays an error. A delay in the application response does not indicate that the application or its dependent component has faulted. Parameters such as workload, system performance, and network bandwidth may affect the application response. VCS continues to wait for the application response even after the timeout interval elapses.
If the application fails to start or stop, VCS takes the necessary action depending on the other configured remedial actions.
You can set a AppStartStopTimeout value between 0 and 600 seconds. The default value is 30 seconds.
This setting defines the number of times that VCS must try to restart a failed application. If an application fails to start within the specified number of attempts, VCS fails over the application to a configured failover system. You can set a AppRestartAttempts value between 1 and 6. The default value is 1.
This setting lets you specify an easy-to-use display name for a configured application. For example, Payroll application. VCS may internally use a different service group name to uniquely identify the same application. However, the service group name, for example OraSG2, may not be intuitive to understand, or easy to parse while navigating the application table. Moreover, once configured, you cannot edit the service group name. In contrast, VCS allows you to modify the display name as required. Note that the Veritas High Availability tab displays both the display name and the service group name associated with the configured application.
