Broker Monitor
Broker Monitor is a program that executes along side Broker Server on the host machine in a webMethods Broker environment. The Broker Monitor is automatically installed when you install webMethods Broker.
Broker Monitor continually checks the state of the Broker Server and automatically attempts to restart it if it stops running.
Broker Monitor is also the program that starts a Broker Server. You usually do not start a Broker Server directly. Instead, you ask the Broker Monitor to start it for you.
Broker Monitor monitors (and starts) all Broker Servers in the webMethods Broker environment.
It is possible to have more than one Broker Monitor on a host machine if the host machine has more than one webMethods Broker environment. For each webMethods Broker environment there is only one Broker Monitor.
