You probably manage a lot of servers to power the information and data processing needs of your organization. Some of these servers may be in the cloud, but other servers need to be managed on site, or at remote sites within your business. Many of your servers and data centres are very important to the core functions of your operations and need to be continually monitored for availability, health and performance to ensure that your servers keep going strong and your networks keep flowing along… as you need them to be!
Many have referred to the Internet of Things (IoT) as the “third wave” of the internet evolution. Consumers can’t help but notice the increasing array of connected devices coming online, ranging from washing machines and refrigerators to personal fitness trackers and automobiles, and even intelligent machines imbedded into clothing, that are popping up everywhere. What many consumers may not realize is that industry is also getting on board with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in a big way. At FrameFlow, we’re acutely aware of how the growing IIoT is dramatically impacting our commercial world, and how important it is to monitor the performance of IIoT devices and sensors.
As the adoption of internet enabled devices continues to explode across all manner of consumer and industrial applications, so too does the need to monitor the performance and accuracy of such devices on your networks. At FrameFlow, we are acutely aware of the critical need to monitor the performance of IoT and IIoT devices and sensors, but we also know that such monitoring must be versatile and flexible enough to function well on existing and widely adopted network management protocols. This is one of several reasons why FrameFlow IT systems and server monitoring software plays quite nicely with one the most tried and true networking protocols out there: SNMP.
We fully understand the importance monitoring all the various IT systems that are critical to your business operations including: servers, routers, switches, HVAC systems, temperature sensors, back-up power supplies and virtually any type of device with an IP address, to ensure they are indeed performing as required. Our cutting edge, but easy to use and fully customizable monitoring software scales to scan 10s of 1000s of IT systems, with over 85 different monitoring types to cover all requirements.
Here’s the rundown on some of the special features that make FrameFlow standout.
Here at FrameFlow, as we continually strive to offer a robust and versatile server and IT systems monitoring solution for a variety of enterprise customers, we’ve noticed that there are several common issues, some of which are interrelated, detected by our software across the board. Here’s a rundown on the top five:
FrameFlow v2016.6 introduced new monitoring options for Dell iDRAC systems. With iDRAC monitoring you get visibility about hardware issues like failed disks, failed power supplies or chassis intrusion. Let’s take a closer look and learn more about iDRAC monitoring with FrameFlow.
In our 2016.5 release we implemented an important performance enhancement for SNMP monitoring. Let's look at the details. SNMP Monitoring SNMP is the workhorse protocol of system monitoring especially when it comes...Read More
