Increase SIM check frequency?

SIM is currently doing it’s job of restarting downed services properly… however, it only checks every five minutes… is there any setting that I can make to have it check every one minute? I believe the check is getting triggered by iworx so I don’t know if this is possible or not…


Hi Cliff,

If you look in /etc/crontab, you should see something like the following:

*/5 * * * * root /usr/local/sim/sim -q > /dev/null 2>&1

Feel free to change that to whatever interval you like.

One thing to note, however. That cronjob entry is actually hardcoded in to the SIM script (the script is found at /usr/local/sim/sim). So, if you were to toggle SIM monitoring off and then on again, it may set it back to the 5 minute interval. You could edit that file (since it’s a plain shell script) and edit the interval in there too.

Hope that helps,

Thanks. Worked like a charm.
