You can have overview about your network by using of profesional monitoring tools. If your productivity strongly depends on trouble-free and reliable network infrastructure, monitoring of your network will provide possibility to avoid problems and fast discover failures. Monitoring tool is offered in two versions – local and cloud.
In case of local implementation, in accordance with local network conditions, monitoring tool can be installed to existing server, to existing virtual infrastructure or we can deliver the tool together with new server. This kind of implementation, directly at the customer side, is suitable for network monitoring of one customer location (for example HQ)
In case of extensive customer networks we recommend distributed model of monitoring. For every independent network part (for example branch office) we apply “thin” version of monitoring tool. It’s purpose is only to collect data from monitored devices and send it to central console. It provides more scalability, decrease traffic load and bandwidth on link and is more resist against failure. In opposite to local installation it provides sophisticated monitoring management from one single place.
There is a specific feature integrated to monitoring tool called wake-on-lan (WOL). By using this we can wake-up servers, workstations, thin clients... Such systems which provide support for this feature inside BIOS and on network interface can be switched-on from remote site and customer can start to use them after they boot-up. By using of agent (software plug-in) installed on server or workstation we can also shutdown the system from the same monitoring console.
