A Windows process monitor is a tool that can help IT admins monitor the critical processes in their Windows IT infrastructure endpoints, and ensure their constant availability, consistent health, and optimum performance. Through proactive monitoring of key services, a Windows process monitor help IT admins ensure that their Windows processes don't go down or terminate unexpectedly.
Since the health and availability of Windows processes can also affect the health, availability, and performance of their host Windows devices and other dependent infrastructure components that rely on these processes for their proper functioning, a Windows processes monitor keeps the entire network from experiencing downtime or other network issues through proactive process monitoring.
Many Microsoft Windows devices including Windows servers and Microsoft hypervisors play a critical role in a network ecosystem. Their constant uptime is essential to ensure business continuity. Disruption in critical Windows process can lead to disruption in business continuity and potential downtime, resulting in vast potential losses in terms of time, effort, and capital investment. At times, it can even causes severe damage to the brand image that could result in lost customers.
This is why it's essential for organizations to have a proactive Windows process monitor strategy to help them track their essential Windows processes around the clock, identify signs of potential trouble, and fix them before they wreck havoc on their entire network infrastructure.
Windows process monitoring is a complex activity that involves identifying critical processes to be monitored and tracking their performance metrics. It's crucial to invest in this activity, as it:
