With today’s multi–vendor IT environments, administrators need a server monitoring tool that works out–of–the–box over multiple technologies and platforms, be it Windows or Linux, Solaris, Unix, VMware, AIX, HP–UX etc.. OpManager provides a single, comprehensive console for your server monitoring needs by using SNMP, WMI, CLI and Telnet⁄SSH to monitor your server infrastructure regardless of device type or make.
Server availability & health monitoring
OpManager continuously monitors server availability and over 300 server performance metrics including CPU utilization, disk space, memory utilization, temperature and fan status. OpManager also has out–of–the–box hardware health monitors for Dell, HP & IBM servers. Each server monitoring console in OpManager gives one immediate access to real–time CPU, memory and disk utilization trends of remote servers.
VMware ESX server monitoring
OpManager has an exclusive server monitoring dashboard for ESX servers which shows the availability and performance trends of the ESX server and of the individual VM instances. The ESX server monitoring console allows administrators to remotely start, stop or suspend individual VM instances.
At the time of device discovery, OpManager discovers all the services running on your Windows & Linux servers and associates availability and response time monitors to these. OpManager also supports adding monitors for custom services running on TCP ports.
OpManager discovers all the processes running on your servers and lists details such as Process ID, Process Name, Process Path and Process Argument. ‘Process Templates’ allow you to discover, manage and set thresholds easily across multiple servers, from a single window. The Remote Process Diagnostics section provides a quick view of the top processes by CPU and Memory utilization allowing you to terminate troubling processes remotely.
Windows services monitoring
In additon to monitoring system level services like HTTP, LDAP, SMTP etc., OpManager also monitors Windows Services e.g. Alerter, FTP, Net Logon, DHCP Server, IAS, Print Spooler etc.. Once a monitored service is found to have failed, OpManager can be configured to automatically restart the Windows Service or even the server.
Windows Eventlog monitoring
OpManager can help you detect failed log–ins, log–in failures due to bad passwords, account lock–outs, failed attempts to access secure files, security log tampering etc. by processing Windows security Event logs. In addition to security logs, OpManager can also monitor application logs (out–of–the–box rules for Exchange, IIS, MS–SQL and ISA servers), system logs and other event logs.
URL & website monitoring
Simply relying on availability and response time (TCP Port) checks won’t help you know if your website has been compromised. OpManager allows you to monitor a URL and search for a specific text on the page. When the text is missing you can be immediately alerted and you get to know in real time that your website has been compromised. OpManager’s website monitoring supports HTTP⁄ HTTPs and NTLM Authenticated sites.
