Real time system monitoring

  • Availability detection
  • Active/Passive Checks
  • Detection and Handling of State Flapping
  • Hosts/Services group metrics compositing
  • Aggregate Reporting
  • SLA metrics aggregation (Meta service)
  • Downtimes scheduling
  • Comments recording
  • Configurable frequencies for KPI collection
Active /Passive Checks

Detection and Handling of State Flapping
  • Storing the results of the last 21 checks of the host or service
  • Analyzing the historical check results and determine where state changes/transitions occur
  • Using the state transitions to determine a percent state change value (a measure of change) for the host or service
  • Comparing the percent state change value against low and high flapping thresholds

Downtimes Scheduling

Allows you to schedule periods of planned downtime for hosts and service that you’re monitoring.

This is useful in the event that you actually know you’re going to be taking a server down for an upgrade, etc

Aggregate reporting

Load distribution/High availability
  • Load analysis breakdowns as per
  • Fail-over satellite server configuration
  • Pre-production satellite server configuration
  • High availability configuration using:
    replicated MySQL databases
    web interfaces
    monitoring engines
    graphs/reports
Performance management
  • Data presented with RRDTool graphical reports
  • Metric and graphic data comparisons
  • Configurable graphical display templates
  • KPI and status correlations
Graphs & Maps

User access controls
  • Access group definitions
  • Interface access restrictions
  • Hosts group resource view restrictions
  • Service groups resource view restrictions
  • Service category resource view restrictions
  •  LDAP Authentication
  • User action logs
