Remotely Verify Filemaker Is Alive

Question asked by ptiseo on Apr 7, 2016

We run some scripts in an automated way by firing up a Filemaker Pro mac client that is supposed to stay alive to periodically run the various scripts. Sometimes, that client may crash or halt. The method must be highly available; if a script takes a long time to execute, we don't want the response to the heartbeat check to be paused, thus looking like a false positive.

 

What ways could I ping/test that system and client to ensure it is still alive?
