The System Center Operations Manager 2007 agent is unable to restart the health service after its monitored thresholds are exceeded
Article ID: 939799 - View products that this article applies to.
The Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 agent monitors its processes to make sure that they do not consume too many system resources. When one of its processes does consume too many system resources, the agent tries to restart itself.
You may encounter one of the four symptoms that are mentioned in this section. These symptoms occur on the agent side if the following conditions are true:
Symptom 1The health service shuts down successfully. However, the health service does not start successfully after its monitored thresholds are exceeded. When this occurs, one of the following events may be logged in the Application event log:
Event Type: Warning
Event Type: Warning
Event Type: Warning
Symptom 2The health service only restarts one time on Microsoft Windows 2000 agents if the thresholds of both monitors are configured to use a very low value. The expected behavior is that the health service repeatedly restarts.
Symptom 3The health service on the agent restarts repeatedly if the following conditions are true:
Symptom 4The overridden values for certain rules are not displayed in the Override properties dialog box. These rules are used to monitor the processes that are mentioned in this section.
