Critical process(es) down (per VS) for Check Point


Check Point


Many devices have critical processes, usually daemons, that must be up for certain functions to work. Indeni will alert if any of these goes down.

Remediation Steps

Review the cause for the processes being down.Check if "cpstop" was run.

How does this work?

The statu of all important processes is retrieved using the built-in Check Point "cpwd_admin list" command. Descriptions are added, based on information from Check Point KB:

Why is this important?

The device functionality is dependent on software processes. It is vital for the operation of the device that these processes are running at all times.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually run the command.
