Next Top Five Server Monitoring Battles - and How You Can Win Them-4 Next

Your Battle

Imagine this scenario. An end user has just called to say that a core business application is down. After quickly analyzing the associated servers, you see they’re up and running. Then what? Or what happens if you hear customers are complaining about slow response times. You see the server is operating at 80% of capacity. Is that the issue? How do you know?

What You Need to Win

In these scenarios, monitoring associated servers is only part of the story. Servers are part of a complex ecosystem, one that’s comprised of applications, databases, network devices, and more. In today’s competitive business landscape, application monitoring is a must have, especially in the context of end user transactions and service levels.

To do this monitoring, you’ll need a single solution that can encompass all aspects of the infrastructure and provide a cohesive view into the service levels being received, and, if performance issues or outages occur, a fast and precise way of determining what the issue is and how to fix it.

The role of servers in your organization has changed substantially — with their uses, requirements, and complexity all increasing dramatically in recent years. Many of the traditional tools and techniques that worked in the past don’t suffice any more. Consequently, server monitoring presents several critical battles in today’s demanding environments. Nimsoft has identified some of the most pressing challenges administrators face in ensuring optimal server performance, and offers insights into the tools and strategies required to address these demands.
