A generic application is an application which can be configured by defining:
(Optional) Force stop program
One or more monitoring options like monitor program, list of processes, or process ID files
You can use the VCS Application agent to ensure high availability of a generic application.
If an application-specific VCS agent exists, Veritas recommends the use of the specialized agent for monitoring availability. In other cases, Veritas recommends the use of the VCS Application agent.
