http://stackoverflow.com – Can I use Jenkins to test to see if a VM(server) is up and running? We have alot of VMs(servers) with JBoss, LDAP, MySQL etc on them and I would like to know if I can somehow have Jenkins ping a server to see if the SA shut it down or something.. I was thinking of using a selenium test. I was going to have a Maven project with a selenium java test in it to check of the server is up. but how can I tell Jenkins to run the test every hour and do you think this is the right way to go?
