Do you have full visibility of the type and nature of traffic traversing your network infrastructure?
Most businesses today are completely reliant on technology to keep operations running and the need to use a reliable network monitoring service is often overlooked. We live in a dynamic and competitive environment which demands the highest availability, dosage where network downtime and system outages can no longer be tolerated, recipe even for the shortest period of time. The equation is simple: time equals money, discount outage equals cost and the number of people affected by outage increases logarithmically with time.
The answer is also simple: network monitoring has become a must.
Introducing iNet – part of MJ Flood Technology’s iManage suite of managed services, specifically designed to monitor more than 20 separate operating systems and provide you with full transparency of network traffic at any point in time.
- Agentless monitoring of any operating system or network connected device.
- Facilitates network and capacity planning with baseline and trend information.
- 37 different monitor types ranging from ping to advanced quality of service monitors.
- Ideal for multi-site organisations thanks to distributed monitoring through firewalls via low impact gateways.
- Flexible action lists for escalating notifications.
- Mail flow monitoring based on round trip times improves performance as trigger alarms can be set.
- No capital outlay required with our “as a service” business model.
How it works
iNet is a stand-alone network monitoring service which is accessible from a browser, scales up or down depending on company size and can fit any budget. iNet includes the basics for monitoring all elements of network-connected devices and displays information in a user-friendly interface.
- Performance monitoring
Network bandwidth, CPU, disk and memory utilisation. On Windows platforms, both Windows performance registry counters and WMI queries are available.
- File and directory monitoring
This can monitor if a file exists, how many files there are in a directory, if the total content of a directory is growing or check if new files are added on a schedule.
- Log monitoring
Triggers notifications and other actions when a log message is encountered that matches a pre-defined filter. Windows event log, Linux/Unix syslog and text log files are supported.
- Database monitoring
Includes support for monitoring Oracle, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and a generic ODBC monitor for use with other DBMS. All of the monitors can perform a SQL query as well as additional performance monitoring specific to each DBMS.
- SNMP trap monitor
With advanced filtering capabilities, alarm conditions can be set up to respond to specific properties of the received trap. There is also the SNMP query monitor that can poll specified OIDs, perform a simple calculation and compare results with a specified value.
- Mail Quality of Service
Monitors makes it possible to test the ability of a mail server to send and receive mail. Statistics about round trip time, time to send and login time is stored.
The toplist function delivers key metrics on all monitored resources in your network. It answers questions such as;
- What machines are using most CPU?
- What machines have least disc left?
- What machines in the network transfer most data over the network during a day, week or month?
- Reporting elements include charts, datatables, toplists and more.
- Reports can be scheduled and delivered by email to specific operators or publishined in local or remote folders via file transfer.
- Network maps with status and bandwidth usage.
- Wide selection of useful widgets ranging from realtime information to notepads.
