Monitoring system resources (CPU utilization, memory utilization, CPU temperature etc.) and having alerts set-up to be notified on unhealthy utilization levels cannot completely help guarantee optimal server or application performance. To fully understand the source of the load on the system resources, one also needs to know about the performance of each critical process associated with the application or services running on the server and this calls for an extensive process monitoring tool.
OpManager serves as an integrated process monitoring software, enabling administrators to remotely monitor and manage processes that are running on discovered devices. OpManager's process monitoring module also enables it to act as a windows process monitor / linux process monitor, thereby allowing you to leverage proactive process monitoring for critical processes running on Windows, Linux, Solaris, Unix, HP UX, IBM AIX, ESX VMware servers etc. through SNMP/WMI/CLI.
'Process Templates' allows one to discover, manage and set thresholds easily across multiple servers, from a single window. Options to configure individual process thresholds are also provided from the device snapshot page. Assigned process monitors give an immediate snapshot of the process status, CPU and memory utilization, with the number of instances of each process.
OpManager also allows you to perform SNMP process monitoring, to manage and monitor processes running on your SNMP-enabled devices. This way, you can monitor processes of almost any device if it just has SNMP enabled in it.
Situations like an unexpected CPU spike or memory leak will require immediate diagnosis and troubleshooting. OpManager's remote process monitor diagnostics allows administrators to view Top 10 processes by CPU or Memory utilization and also provides the ability to terminate the problem-causing processes remotely to save the server from crashing.
OpManager's process monitor toolkit comes with a fault management module that has the ability to trigger alerts (Email or SMS) or notify technician (Web alarm or Log a ticket) when a particular process exceeds the set threshold point. Besides these proactive monitoring functionalities, OpManager has options to run any script or a batch file to resolve any unforeseen network anomalies e.g. restarting a particular service/server, when a process exceeds a set upper limit. All processes data monitored are also stored for graphing, trending and reporting purposes.
