What is Server Monitoring?
Compute or Server infrastructure has been the backbone of the IT world for decades. Compute has evolved from on-premises hardware to programmable compute in the form of software containers which can run in on-prem data centers or in the cloud. Server monitoring software continually collects data from system resources including CPU, memory, I/O, network, and disk usage. IT operations teams use the data to prevent and resolve issues related to resource utilization, downtime and response time.
The OpsRamp platform captures and aggregates critical availability and performance metrics for server infrastructure across on-prem and cloud. Metrics, alerts, incidents, reports, and dashboards help IT operations teams analyze the health of their technology services and the underlying compute instances in a single place. OpsRamp’s server monitoring capabilities include both agent-based and agentless techniques.
