We have SAS Grid installed on the RHEL linux servers and like to setup some monitors on the linux server to ensure that all the required SAS Services/process on the Compute nodes, metadata servers and Mid-tier are up and running. Could someone provide me the list of sas services/Process that we need to monitor on the linux server. Do we need to monitor any ports too?

for the monitoring, you should have installed IBM RTM ( https://support.sas.com/rnd/scalability/grid/RTM.html ) or the SAS Environment Manager, or even both. Those can help you to monitor the Grid, and they should be configured already. If not, I would recommend you to do so.
Besides this. the services you have to monitor, you can go to each machine, and check all the services starting with "sas", "lim" , "res", "ego", etc. Please read https://support.sas.com/rnd/scalability/grid/PSS9.1_Unix_Install.pdf
You have also this little program to test your grid platform: https://support.sas.com/rnd/scalability/grid/gridtest.pdf
About the ports, I suggest you to go the SAS Management COnsole and retrieve the ports you need to monitor, or check a document named InstallReport that should have been delivered to you if the environment was installed by a SAS consultant.

Thanks. I do aware of the SAS EVM. Apart from using EVM, I want to use our monitoring tools too.
For ex: On a Windows SAS Grid environment, we can create and configure alerts to monitor the various sas services by using monitoring tools (like Tivoli/scom) to check the status of the services in the service manager.
Is there any way I can do for the SAS Linux Grid environment?
something like Running servers as unix daemons? Not sure if this is a good idea or not.

what are the list of services (sas,lim...etc ? )that we need to monitor? Where can I get the complete list?
Inorder to monitor using third party tools, do we need to setup these process/servers as daemons in the init.d/systemd ?
