Connection settings

RSTAT monitors allow monitoring the rpc.rstatd daemon counters. This daemon is already installed and running on most Solaris and Linux machines.

This protocol uses RPC calls. Its disadvantage is that it is blocked by most firewalls as it uses port 111, the RPC port, which generally is blocked by default. This port may need to be opened to allow NeoLoad to access the rstatd daemon.

The default connection port set by NeoLoad is 0. This setting causes NeoLoad to automatically search for the RPC port used by the remote machine.

Create a RSTAT monitor

NeoLoad makes it possible to create a new monitor either using the monitored machine creation wizard, as described in Create and configure a monitored machine, or from an existing monitored machine, as described in Create and configure a monitor.
