Startup parameter: enableAnubisMonitor

Startup parameters change the behavior of the HPE Service Manager server. You can always set a startup parameter from the server's operating system command prompt.




This parameter starts the anubis monitor to check the status of background scheduler threads. By default, this parameter is disabled.

This parameter should be used in conjunction with the anubisPollInterval parameter, which specifies the time interval (in seconds) at which the anubis monitor checks to see if any registered scheduler is alive (default: 15 seconds).

The following table describes different system behaviors based on the value of this parameter.

Value Description
1 or empty Enabled


Note By default, this parameter is not specified and a value of "0" is used.

Note The ThreadControllerId-background thread, which can be started no matter whether enableAnubisMonitor is enabled or not, has been modified to additionally include the anubis monitor functionality and thus eliminated the need for the anubis process. You are recommended to use the new anubis parameters instead of the old anubis process. If an anubis agent record and anubis schedule record, which were used to restart stopped background processes automatically, already exist in your system, before enabling enableAnubisMonitor you need to disable the original anubis RAD applications. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Delete the existing anubis agent record.
    1. Type info on the Service Manager command line, and then click Search.
    2. Delete the anubis agent record.
  2. Delete the existing anubis schedule record.
    1. Type sch on the Service Manager command line, and then click Search.
    2. Delete the anubis schedule record.
