Today, servers are rarely run as separate physical boxes, but even if they do, monitoring the hardware and software components on all levels is even more critical.
In a virtualized environment, the focus shifts more toward proper resource allocation than detecting hardware failures, as usually, there is no single point of failure for the hardware, thanks to fault tolerance clusters.
NetCrunch provides monitoring solutions for all layers regardless of which level of virtualization is implemented in your infrastructure. It can monitor hardware with IPMI, VMWare ESX hosts, Hyper-V hosts, all major operating systems, docker containers, and service applications running on top of it, such as mail server, file server, web server, or databases.
Besides typical performance and health monitoring, NetCrunch also covers monitoring alerts and logs (even text logs from applications).
Server monitoring lets you control your infrastructure in real-time. Each layer of monitoring helps you find the cause of the failure or performance degradation. NetCrunch server monitoring checks the status and performance of each monitoring layer and receives and reacts to events triggered by monitored systems.
The main goal of server monitoring is to maintain system stability and uninterrupted operations. Server performance monitoring allows for identifying early symptoms of performance degradation or failures. Server monitoring by NetCrunch can trigger automatic actions in response to received alerts or breached thresholds.
Long-term server performance monitoring allows the collecting of data that one can use for analysis and planning. You can quickly identify trends, patterns, and anomalies thanks to server monitoring. NetCrunch trend analyzer and built-in reporting help managers plan the expansion and optimization of their IT infrastructures.
