Four Benefits of Remote Server Monitoring

Having clear insight into your network’s health and performance is essential to running a smooth operation, and remote server monitoring provides you with exactly that. This solution gazes into the dark recesses of your network and allows you to see what is running, how it is running and what may cause a problem in the future.

Here are four of the main benefits that come with remote server monitoring:

1.       Run multiple checks on your network

The great thing about remote server monitoring solutions is that they can run multiple checks simultaneously, allowing your network to be scanned in a few seconds. Just imagine doing that manually! They can also be regularly scheduled to allow you to keep a close eye on your network and ensure everything is running smooth.

2.       Only a lightweight agent is needed

Workplaces are evolving and it is rare that every employee still accesses the network from the office. Within a few clicks, even machines in remote locations can be monitored and maintained effectively.

3.       Immediate notifications and reactions

When something goes wrong, or could potentially go wrong in the future, you want to know about it right away. Remote server monitoring solutions talk to you by text message or email, advising you of critical events or problems. This enables you to respond proactively to potential issues and ensure your network uptime is maximized.

In addition, remote network monitoring solutions allow you to log in to the management console from anywhere to investigate any issues found. This gives you greater freedom, while also keeping your response rates high. It also minimizes disruption to your network and reduces time-intensive support calls by allowing issues to be resolved before they become a problem for your users.

4.       Remote corrections

Remote network monitoring solutions actually go one step farther and can also take corrective action. A remote network monitoring solution can automatically restart a service or reboot a server. That gives you great flexibility in handling minor issues. Even better, the software will let you know if the automatic fix didn’t work in its next batch of checks, enabling you to step in and solve it.

By continually monitoring your network you may be able to identify workstations that continually fail, or services that have repeated errors, which can then prompt deeper investigation. Most importantly, remote server monitoring gives you a clearer picture of the health of your network and assists you in optimizing it, enabling anomalous events to stand out that much clearer.
