Understanding the Importance of a Monitoring System for Your Server

  1. 1. Understanding the Importance of a Monitoring System for Your ServerServer monitoring is the foundation for good cloud infrastructure and its importance has only increased with themove to the cloud. Troubleshooting server performance problems is one of the chief reasons for monitoring.Monitoring will allow you to prevent incidents, and identify them before your customers do. It is necessary to havea clear plan prepared for unforeseen circumstances. Server monitoring automatically scans the servers on thenetworks for irregularities and failures. With server monitoring, administrators are allowed to identify issues andfix unexpected problems thereby ensuring that the server performance is efficient. It is essential in ensuringnetwork availability through proactive resolutions. Server performance can be optimized by the crucial datacollected. This includes checking the servers’ activities and maintaining its tasks.Before Server MonitoringBefore you begin monitoring a server, it may be necessary to establish baseline performance metrics for yourserver. It is essential to measure server performance at several times and under different load conditions. Todetermine how the server is performing, you can then compare the baseline performance with subsequentperformance. With performance metrics that are above the baseline measurements, it is possible to identify theareas where the server needs to be optimized or reconfigured. The ultimate aim of server monitoring is to deliverthe right information in time to allow your cloud infrastructure to react before any significant deterioration in yourperformance is experienced.A monitoring Plan Is NecessaryWith a good monitoring plan it is possible to determine which server events should be monitored in order to helpyou accomplish your goal. The plan must set filters to reduce the amount of information collected and configuremonitors and alerts to watch the events. It must also include logging the event data so that it can be analyzed, andof course, analyzing the event data in Performance Monitoring.Choose the Right Monitoring SystemHaving defined your plan, you now have to choose a server monitoring system. There are many available on themarket and each of them has its unique purpose. Make sure monitoring is always up-to-date; update it every timeyou change something on the server. Server monitoring shouldnt place undue load on the servers you deploy.When properly implemented, server monitoring can open up new avenues of significant cost savings whileprotecting performance.Click here for more on temperature sensors & temp humidity sensor
