Windows Server Manager monitors the key areas of your Windows servers and performs predetermined actions as required. Important events and error messages can be seen instantly on the graphical Enterprise Console during the day while on-call personnel can be notified immediately after-hours by email or text messages sent to their mobile devices.
Windows Server Manager allows you to manage more with fewer resources. It can automatically start, stop, pause, or resume a service and respond to operational situations specific to your escalation policies. It also sends early warning alerts of critical issues, including notifications of system performance, and alerts when critical subsystems stop running.
There’s no need to manually monitor logs, disk space, errors, and file sizes. Windows Server Manager interrogates network devices for error information, ensures email and web servers are working, and greatly reduces the risk of human error.
Essential monitors ensure maximum availability of servers and network devices 24/7 with alerts sent to the Enterprise Console or as text or email messages. Essential monitors include:
CPU, disk, and memory
|File and folder||SNMP traps|
Standard components of Network Server Suite, also available in Windows Server Manager, include a centralized dashboard view of all alerts across the entire enterprise regardless of location and platform; advanced network monitoring of Windows servers, applications, and services running on the Windows platform; as well as unlimited network monitoring of all SNMP devices.
Automatic alerts can be also be sent to staff by email or SMS and a free app for Apple and Android smartphones or tablets provides a mobile view of the console enabling IT staff to remotely manage systems.
Software installation and configuration is controlled from a central server. You can roll out common rules via built-in templates defined on one server and rolled out to multiple servers using a single keystroke. In addition, Network Server Suite offers self-monitoring options and at-a-glance historical server performance reporting.
