Monitoring Servers and Services

NetBrain Service Monitor provides a portal for administrators to observe the health of deployed Windows and Linux servers, with operations management of related services. It collects various types of metrics data from these deployed servers and visualizes them in tables or line charts.

With Service Monitor, system administrator can manage to troubleshoot a system-level issue and take remedial actions, or even optimize the system performance by performing the following operations:

Check the status and connectivity of each server, and the performance metrics of relevant services in the system, to troubleshoot a login failure, a search failure, or an automation task execution failure.

Analyze the trending data of system resource utilization metrics, such as CPU utilization, memory utilization, and disk/directory space usage.

Restart NetBrain services.

Note: If you deploy more than one system across multiple data centers, you will have more than one Service Monitor portal.
