Instead you could try loading the "[Service Management Facility|http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/819-5417/6n7gj82ds]" or "[Process Monitoring|http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/819-5417/6n7gj82dr?a=view#i1036007]" modules into your SunMC Agent. The SMF module shows you the overall service state (and allows you to change it), and Process Monitoring lets you track process counts, existence, and CPU/memory usage (and set alarm for them or graph them etc).
I need to know how to Manage Solaris services (SMF) in sparse zone with Solaris container manager.
I have navigated all the documentation and I have not found any clue.
I installed the Sun management center (SMC) server on a server box and the agents on others. I can manage the SMF of the global zone by drilling down via the console GUI. But having access to the container manager, I have to go via https connection. And drilling down on the zone did not reveal that SMF can be monitored.
Please if you have any idea, share it with me.

Thanks for your response,
I want to monitor some service if its online or offline. and as i said earlier, this can be done perfectly on the global zone but not on the local zone which can only be seen on "manage solaris containers" section of the SMC webpage.

What is the web address to go to in order to login in to the Sun MC Container Manager. Is there a main address to go on the server which gives the list of all the options and management tools available.

I have tried that, but it says page not found or some other error. On some of the other servers where I have installed Solaris Container Manager he authentication page shows up but asks me for username and password. I am not sure what username and password is it asking for.
