A critical piece of equipment in your systems administrator tool box is solid computer monitoring. Examining all the computers and servers on your network, also routers and all the applications in between will allow for greater optimization. This examination allows your administrator to maintain a robust network and even improve the overall computer performance.
When implementing a solid computer monitoring strategy many considerations must be made. A simple ping does not cover all the bases in any critical network. Deep application testing and configuring dependencies is crucial. No matter how simple or complex the computer environment, monitoring is required at many levels.
Who’s Monitoring Your Computers?
Many networks and their computers go without the attention they require either because there is no dedicated computer administrator with solid experience (as is the case with most small businesses) or because of a lack of time. It’s no stretch to say that your network administrators are stretched.
Outsourcing your computer monitoring with a company that has invested in the tools and has the experience can improve your overall systems performance as well as decrease your downtime.
Lowering your downtime is critical, but first you must know your downtime. How many times have you wondered how long a critical function your business was unable to execute because of a computer crash? Have you asked yourself if a feature your customers use has been up and available to them every minute of this past month?
Our in depth monitoring solutions are custom configured for your specific business needs. Proprietary applications are dissected to understand how all the moving parts work together. We discover the intricacies of your specific environment and tailor a monitoring solution to fit your needs.
Your online applications, and client server applications are critical. Monitoring the individual features and functions of these applications on your network is critical. Out of the box solutions rarely fit your needs.
We recognize this and have been creating in-depth custom monitoring solutions for complex applications in the Phoenix Arizona area for more than 15 years. Our solutions are simple and utilize cutting edge monitoring tools.
Custom reports are delivered to show uptime, or identify failures, more importantly they identify coming failures before they cause problems for your productivity.
Your online applications, file servers, and desktops are critical. Monitoring the systems on your network is critical in catching problems before they begin to cause failures. As the Monitoring Server constantly checks the health of each of the components of all your systems on a daily basis it creates a snapshot of what your environment looks like when all is healthy.
Right when things start to go bad, problems begin to become obvious when that snapshot is compared on the Monitoring Server to a known good state. This is standard “trend analysis”, and it’s done automatically. Knowing long before a disk is full, or when an application uses too much CPU is just the beginning.
