Application and Service Monitoring
AggreGate Network Manager helps companies to ensure high availability and performance for their business applications. The system "knows" common applications, services, technologies, protocols, and uses intelligent monitoring technology for checking operability of business-critical systems.
In addition to native monitoring of networked applications, the Network Manager obtains information about processes running on remote machines via SNMP. This allows to configure alerting, charting, reporting, and other processing for:
The Network Manager supports batch configuration of application monitors for several hosts, along with replication and export/import of monitoring settings.
Service Status Dashboards
Service status dashboard provides a very easy way to get an overall picture of your IT infrastructure health. It shows a matrix of servers and services indicating state of every service by color-coding. Service status dashboard is a nodal point for finding the root cause of diverse network problems.
Application Problem Alerting
AggreGate Network Manager provides out-of-the-box alerts for typical application problems, such as Apache Web Server Requests Overload or FTP Out Of Disk Space.
The network discovery process finds both known and unrecognized ("generic") services by TCP/UDP port scanning. If an active service is detected, its monitoring is auto-enabled when a device account is created for the host. The system also finds and applies an optimal monitoring profile for every service.
Message and Error Aggregation
The network manager remotely collects application messages and error notifications via Syslog and Windows Event Log facilities. These messages are stored in the central server database for maintaining long-term audit trails.
Received application errors may be broadcasted using Syslog and SNMP traps. Any application error may trigger an alert, causing email/SMS system administrator notifications and automatic corrective actions (server rebooting, remote script execution, etc.)
Web Server and Website Monitoring
Round-the-clock supervising of your website is crucial for proactive identification of problems before they escalate into substantial downtime and lost revenue.
Monitoring of web servers, including Apache and IIS, is performed by:
The system also provides comprehensive information about web server health by alerting (e.g. Traffic Overload Alert) and charting (e.g. Apache Busy Processes Chart).
Mail Server Monitoring
In today's Internet economy, any business just hangs if a corporate mail server is down or misfunctional. AggreGate Network Manager is designed to prevent mail system downtime by:
There are many other "smart" application monitors bundled with AggreGate Network Manager. Here is a brief summary of their functionality:
AggreGate Network Manager monitors database servers via JDBC/ODBC. Most modern enterprise databases are supported, including Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, PostreSQL, Firebird, etc.
The network manager checks server availability, executes custom queries and matches query results against specific criteria (field/row count, field values, etc.)
Java and .NET Application Monitoring
The Manager acts as a JXM-based monitoring tool, providing end-to-end management for any Java-based applications and application servers.
Similarly, comprehensive .NET application monitoring and management is enabled via WMI procotol.
Generic TCP/UDP Port Monitoring
Operability of network applications and services (both TCP and UDP) that are not natively supported is ensured by:
