    Praveen,

     

    There are two ways to monitor the health of CAPAM.  On all versions, CAPAM can be setup for snmp traps and have alerts received for certain processes and errors.  These are somewhat limited to main functions and certain error conditions but does not include every error condition possible.  For 3.X, you can install the Console Monitor which will literally show you a full status for all your nodes in your cluster(s), but this will take a full CAPAM instance that cannot be used as an Access Node any longer, only for monitoring.

     

    Please see the documentation at:  Search Results - CA Privileged Access Manager - 3.0.2 - CA Technologies Documentation

    Thanks Manan fir this information.

     

    Is it possible to check the services/process status of PAM with the help of any scripts?

    In that the CA PAM Appliance is a black box - there is no way to apply any scripts at the command level.  Not sure if Splunk would meet your needs as far as monitoring the log files.

    In addition to SNMP, you can send messages to a syslog server, which could be a splunk, arcsite, or other SIEM tool.  You may also use the built in splunk forwarder to send these messages to a splunk receiver.
