How to Monitor Server Infrastructure

Welcome to Opsview you in today’s example I’m going to be going over how to monitor your server infrastructure. Opsview address many of the challenges that system administrators experience by the complexity of their server layouts with different virtual technologies or even the cloud. I’m going to show you how easy it is to monitor your server infrastructure. We’re going to be looking at dashboards which is a collection of dashlets that are shown on the larger layout. In today’s example we have one for monitoring our Linux environment from event graphs, different performance graphs, for CP utilization, swap space and memory utilization. These are easily configurable and can be shared amongst the organization within a few clicks. Next another way to visualize our data is our graph center our graph center can be configured in many different ways this example we’re going to be looking at our UNIX load average for various different Linux hosts. Within a few clicks I can easily visualize the UNIX load average for all of my linux hosts. Next we’re looking looking at a problem for all different enterprises and managed service providers which is notifications. Notifications can easily be shared using shared notification profiles. They can easily be customized within a few clicks by which host groups are responsible for or even service groups which is a collection of service checks. We also have hash tags which is a great way to group different technologies together to monitor or being able to get notified on. For more advanced notifications ops you supports many different integration partners including on page, page duty, twilio and more. Thank you for joining us
