Service Element Modules

To monitor services on the local system, Service Availability Manager uses Service Element modules. A Service Element module sends service requests periodically according to configuration parameters that you specify. In this way, both service availability and response time can be determined. There are ten kinds of Service Element modules included in Service Availability Manager. For more information, see Service Element Modules Overview. The following figure shows an example of the DNS Service Element module.
