shell script to check if ExLibris Aleph is running OK

If you have to admin Aleph from ExLibris you may be wondering why there is minimal tools to help you make sure its all running ok

Below is a simple shell script that checks various ‘ue_’ process (PC server, publishing, etc..) and emails if they are down

Add this to your crontab to run each 15 minutes or so

Note:

  • replace the email address with your email address
  • replace LIB with your 3 character library code
  • add/remove ue_ sections as you need

aleph.sh
