Windows Task Scheduler: State
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check plugin monitors the last return state of Windows tasks. The check plugin uses a default
mapping from return code to monitoring state to handle the return codes specified under
For these return codes, the check plugin will also display the appropriate error message. Any return
code not listed under the above link will by default result in the monitoring state CRITICAL.
Furthermore, by default, the check plugin will go WARNING if a monitored task is not enabled.
The check plugin can be configured via the rule "Windows Tasks". Here, users can customize the
mapping from return code to monitoring state and users can also change the output produced by the
check plugin for a given return code. Finally, this rule allows users to modify the monitoring state
of tasks which are not enabled.
Note that for this check plugin to discover any services at all, you need to activate the Windows
agent plugin "Windows Task Scheduler".
Name of the task
One service is created for each task which is not disabled.
