Why is server monitoring software tool useful?
IT infrastructure has become the centrepiece of every modern company. If a server fails or encounters complications, it can have an impact on the entire operating process.
A good server monitoring software is tailored to your specific needs and supports you in the following areas:
- Early detection: Without knowing that a problem exists, you can't take countermeasures. Depending on the set parameters, server monitoring tools notify you of potential malfunctions before any major outages occur.
- Root cause analysis: The need to know how the malfunction occurred and what measures can be taken to prevent a future problem. A monitoring tool continuously collects data and provides you with a basis for a sound analysis.
- Planning, effective planning requires you to know the answers to these questions: Are the current resources sufficient in the medium and long term? Are your servers consistently working at full capacity? Are there any preferred times for upcoming maintenance or updates? Using the data from your monitoring tools, you get a detailed overview of the capacities of your servers so that you can plan optimally.
What can be monitored via server monitoring?
Some tools are designed for passive monitoring. The administrator is notified when pre-defined thresholds are exceeded. Other tools allow the programming of active optimisations and interventions. Whatever the case, the aim of automated monitoring is to make the administrator’s job easier.
In general, server monitoring tools can keep track of the following areas:
- Hardware: Ongoing operation can only be guaranteed if the hardware functions properly. A close look at the server CPU, RAM, hard disks, and other components such as power supply or fans indicates the health of your IT.
- Accessibility: Optimally, your servers should be available around the clock. If unexpected failures occur, the administrator must be notified immediately for quick countermeasures.
- Performance: Depending on the type of server, other key indicators must be monitored. For application servers, the focus is on availability; for storage servers, the emphasis lies on capacity and transmission speed.
The market offers a wide range of tools for server monitoring. It is not always easy to find the best solution for your company as the choice depends on individual requirements. Free monitoring tools are also available, as are fee-based server monitoring tools or software as a service (SaaS).
Our experts at HAPPYWARE will be happy to help find best solution for you.
