Monitor DSS Host status from another application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have all my robot code done and I use DssHost32.exe with manifest file to launch the DSS Node.  I notice that sometimes their can be a possible error and the node does not start. I would like to create a monitor application that checks to see if my DSS node has started and is running ok. I have a few questions:

    1. Any example C# code to show how to connect to the Dss node?

    2. Once I have a connection I would assume through http? What service would I check that would best let me know if things are ok?

    3. I read in the following app note that there are 2 ways to start a Dss node ( ) With the DssHost32.exe or as part of another application using the DSS environment static class.

    Dose anyone have any example code to show how to use the DSS environment static class to start a DSS node? Also, do you think this would work in my situation where I want to monitor if the DSS node is up and running and if not restart?

    Thank you!
