What is network monitoring?

Devices across your network may encounter faults with hardware and software. Network Monitoring collects this information then reports or responds to this information according to pre-defined automation scripts.

How does network monitoring work?

Clients are installed on devices across the network to pickup alerts from their event logs. Typical information might include software or hardware faults. For example, a laptop which reports a program crashing might be highlighted for investigation.

For devices which cannot have the client installed other computers can be allocated as Nodes to probe for SNMP data, for example a server might receive information from a printer regarding toner levels.

When does the Network Monitoring notification occur?

Usually this is instant, as soon as the alert is generated it will be reported back to the Network Monitoring console. It is also possible to create scheduled tasks and tests.

How does an automated resolution work?

If an issue occurs which has a known resolution a script can be created to automatically respond with a fix. An example of this might be a print spooler which has crashed, if this occurs the network monitoring client can detect the fault and then restart the print spooler.

What does the network monitor detect?

There are many types of faults that the network monitor client can detect, these include Event Log Alerts, the state of services, applications crashes, hardware faults and other SNMP notifications. On the network level new devices and monitoring of connectivity to the internet and other network devices can also be configured.
