What does Internet Server Monitor do?

  • Minimizes downtime by proactively notifying IT when degraded server and application performance is detected
  • Centrally monitors your network, servers and applications
  • Monitors uptime
  • Verifies applications are responsive
  • Supports hierarchical monitoring
  • Supports failure rates
  • Supports triggered schedules
  • Executes warning, critical and recovery actions
  • Publishes summary status reports
  • Displays real-time alerts on remote Management Console desktops
  • Shuts down monitors during defined maintenance windows
  • Saves monitor history for historical graphing and review

What does Corner Bowl Internet Server Monitor include?

Interrogation

Corner Bowl not only checks the availability of server applications but in most cases includes functionality to test the application performance. For example, an HTTP or Web monitor can be created to test the availability of the server and verify the returned URL or document contains the desired content.

Hierarchical Monitoring

System administrators can setup monitoring hierarchy to shut down, start, or throttle up backup system monitoring when a primary server fails. For example, when a ping monitor fails on a primary server the system can shut down the dependent memory and CPU monitors while also throttling up ping, memory and CPU monitors on your backup server.

Failure Rate

Monitors such as the Ping Monitor regularly timeout. Internet Server Monitor provides you with the tools to define failure rates. For example, when pinging a server every second, you can configure the ping monitor to trigger only after 3 pings fail within 10 seconds.

History

Corner Bowl saves all monitor results to the local file system then removes old status using a data retention policy your network administrator defines. Corner Bowl users can view the history in tabular format and graphical format when applicable.
