System Monitoring Automated and efficient system monitoring software for all cloud-based and on-premises IT systems.

System Monitoring

What is System Monitoring?

System monitoring is the ongoing process of monitoring, analyzing, and visualizing the performance and availability of IT systems, applications, and networks. It combines server monitoring, which focuses on server performance, with Application & Performance Monitoring (APM), which evaluates application efficiency. By continuously collecting data on key aspects such as CPU utilization, memory usage, network throughput, and service availability, system monitoring ensures business continuity by detecting performance bottlenecks, system failures, and security risks early. This comprehensive analysis enables IT administrators to proactively address issues, optimize performance, and improve IT infrastructure security, ensuring high user satisfaction and system availability.
