The collective of those machines or servers in conjunction with the other devices of connectivity, telecommunications and security is what we call data center. Before this scenario, the availability of the data center becomes crucial for the functioning of a Company. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to dispose of an infrastructure that has the capacity of assisting all the demands of the network of computers.
Failures with the capacity of affecting the performance of the services or the network will generate several disorders. In other words, when we quote disorders we mean losses. A data center can possess several elements and one complex configuration, however, it is primordial the capacity to quickly encounter the failures when they happen. However, how do we find it with agility in one infrastructure with so many elements?
MONITORING AND MANAGING
Constant management and the monitoring will be your main allies in this important mission. The visibility of the infrastructure will provide the capacity of detecting and isolating mistakes with agility. Therefore, reducing the risk of outages of performance, stops in the network and consequently avoiding damages that such events certainly will cause.
Other point, not less important, is the asset management,characterized for the strategic decision taking based with data provided in real time. The capacity of visualizing the performance indicators through graphics and reports. As well as, providing information that will help in the planning of the expansion of the infrastructure and the correct allocation of resources.
Now that we understand the importance of the monitoring of our data center, what can we monitor?
WHAT CAN WE MONITOR?
With the SLAview it is possible to visualize all the parameters and indicators of the assets present in the network infrastructure. As well as manipulating those data for the sake of building graphics and generating reports with immense flexibility. From indicators, the administrator will also be able to configure alarms that will keep him aware of any significant alteration in the indicators of the infrastructure.
The SNMP protocol is the main ingredient when we talk about managing and monitoring network indicators. SNMP is a protocol of the application layer that establishes the exchange of information of network management. Through such protocol it is possible to collect several information about any device that possesses an agent SNMP installed. In this manner, we will have a universe of possibilities for monitoring. Possibilities such as those can go from indicators referring to devices like routers and switches, even sensors such as humidity sensors and flooding detectors. Besides that, complementing it is possible to utilize scripts and captures via ICMP or twamp in order to recover additional information such as jitter, latency and packet loss.
Therefore, guaranteeing the visibility of indicators such as: usage of memory, processing, temperature and parameters which enable the monitoring of health and the physical integrity of your data center in real time.
Concepts connected to the 4.0 industry reinforce the importance of the control in real time of the production according to the information that are received. Agility in the decision taking.
Finally, with the capacity of configuring charts, maps and dashboards, the administrator will be capable of managing and monitoring completely everything that happens in your data center. Guaranteeing in this manner, a computer network that is more efficient and resilient.
The SLAview is a system of network managing for evaluating your performance in an easier and more practical way.
In this way, there are no doubts about the importance of investing on network management. In this same manner, bringing not only benefits to the network visibility but also being a complementary way to seek for the prevention of problems that might cause the dropping of network services.
Thinking of that, Telcomanager present in the market since 2002, and a leading Latin America brand in the sector of software for managing networks. Also counting with a unique and innovative technology, deploying smart solutions in the monitoring of data that will provide a stratified vision of the traffic, is now allowing your Company to follow the most important aspects of your network, in real time.
