    Hi All,


    Is there a way to monitor UDP ports from UIM. Whether something is listening on the ports.

    I tried through net_connect, but I dont see the UDP port getting listed there.

    Hello, you can use the net_connect probe for that, you will only have to configure the service definitions on the IM configuration interface take a look on that documentation on the session "Create Service Definitions":

    net_connect IM Configuration - CA Unified Infrastructure Management Probes - CA Technologies Documentation

    Thanks for the reply. I need to monitor UDP based services. The net_connect probe helps only for TCP based services.

       But what service you whant to monitor? the net_connect probe will show to you if the port respondig. maybe some kind of end to end test might solve your problem

    Due to the nature of UDP, you can't get a reply back since it never sends a syn-ack.  You can though use logmon probe and run a command like netstat to see if the UDP port is listening.
