Script monitor does not provide statistic value if the script exit code is 1

Overview

The following script monitors do not provide the statistic or message output value if the script exists using the exit code 1:

  • Windows Powershell Monitor
  • Windows Script Monitor
  • Linux/Unix Script Monitor

Environment

  • All SAM versions
  • All Windows versions

Cause 

An exit code of 1 inicates that the script has failed. As such, no parsing of output is performed to gather Statistic or Message values.

Resolution

To monitor a value and compare it against a threshold, set the statistic value as needed and exit with a value of 0. You can then adjust the thresholds within the Monitor to fail or not, depending on the value received.
