Monitor policy settings
Use this page to view or change settings that control how the node agent monitors and restarts a process.

- Maximum Startup Attempts
Specifies the maximum number of times to attempt to start the application server before giving up.
Data type Integer
- Ping Interval
Specifies the frequency of communication attempts between the parent process, such as the node agent, and the process it has spawned, such as an application server. Adjust this value based on your requirements for restarting failed servers. Decreasing the value detects failures sooner; increasing the value reduces the frequency of pings, reducing system overhead.
Data type Integer Range Set the value greater than or equal to 0 (zero) and less than 2147483. If you specify a value greater than 2147483, the application server acts as though you set the value to 0.
- Ping Timeout
When a parent process is spawning a child process, such as when a process manager spawns a server, the parent process pings the child process to see whether the child was spawned successfully. This value specifies the number of seconds that the parent process should wait (after pinging the child process) before assuming that the child process failed.
Data type Integer Units Seconds Range Set the value greater than or equal to 0 (zero) and less than 2147483. If you specify a value greater than 2147483, the application server acts as though you set the value to 0.
- Automatic Restart
Specifies whether the process should restart automatically if it fails. The default is to restart the process automatically.
Data type Boolean Default true
- Node Restart State
Desired state for the process after the node completely shuts down and restarts.
Data type String Default STOPPED Range Valid values are STOPPED, RUNNING, or PREVIOUS. If you want the process to return to its current state after the node restarts, use PREVIOUS.
