Upload Script

Scripts can be executed on managed computers using a Policy or Casper Remote. Most scripts also work with other management tools.

Find out more about scripts on the scripts page.

Tomcat Monitor

The script monitors Tomcat by checking to see if port 8080 on localhost is active. If not, Tomcat is then stopped and started using the startup scripts for your Tomcat installation (edit the stop and start commands as appropriate for your Tomcat installation.) The Tomcat installation being monitored is JAMF Software's Casper JSS server running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0. You will need to edit the stop and start commands in if you are monitoring a different Tomcat installation. (241 B)
