What is server monitoring?

Server monitoring solutions help address performance issues. Web servers can be physical devices or virtual servers housed on a physical machine shared by multiple clients, each running their own independent web server system. With server monitoring tools, ITOps teams can evaluate the server performance and status of an organizations’ compute resources, including CPU use, memory, log files, disk availability, and network traffic, and collect data relevant to downstream effects. Server monitoring tools are the basis for capacity planning, troubleshooting, maintenance, and health monitoring. 

How can server monitoring software help an organization like yours?

Virtualization has revolutionized IT, and server virtualization is projected to grow at an annual rate of 23% for the next several years, according to Grandview Research. That means your computing resources will experience rapid and constant change–bringing the need for a comprehensive server monitoring tool. To keep up with the pace of change and ensure you know the status of your computing resources, you need a platform designed for today’s complex, ephemeral mix of technologies. 

It doesn’t make sense to invest in innovative technologies and to expect effective performance monitoring with legacy IT operations management tools that are incompatible with virtual servers and associated software-defined systems. An AIOps platform like SL1, engineered to integrate with traditional and virtual systems, provides complete, real-time visibility across on-premises and cloud-based infrastructure. That’s the only way to know your computing resources are working at peak efficiency and to quickly respond to and restore them when they aren’t.
