    Performance Monitoring Tool

     

    Monitor ServiceDesk Plus software metrics and scale the application's capacity (based on memory utilization and cpu usage) using the performance monitoring tool. This tool through regular monitoring (as per the configured schedule) checks for performance issues and finds out their rootcause. It presents "a clear picture of performance issues" which enable the application user to provide administrators with the exact log details required for effectively tackling application slowdowns..


    Notes:

    • Performance Monitoring Tool is an url-based tool which can be enabled/disabled only through urls.

    • Technicians with SDAdmin role alone have the rights to operate performance monitoring tool
