I am configuring a script to monitor the opscenter process, and my initial thought was to cat the opscenterd.pid file and check that the process is running. I was going to do this with Splunk. However, this pid file is owned by root and not readable (500.) I don't want Splunk to run as root. Is this ownership something I can change? Is there a 'standard' way you recommend to monitor the opscenter process?
