Server Monitoring

Monitor Servers Along With All Other Cloud & On-Premises Systems

Reduce costs and complexity by visualizing server performance and availability as part of an end-to-end IT service model.

Reduce Complexity With Unified Visibility for Server Infrastructure

Get clear visibility into thousands of server metrics for health, performance and utilization for your multivendor server infrastructure. The Zenoss software-defined IT operations platform provides native coverage for the most trusted server hardware and operating system platforms, enabling organizations to quickly and effectively monitor all of their compute resources. Built from the ground up to monitor the most dynamic environments, Zenoss server monitoring software provides native virtualization support coupled with uniquely broad operating system support.

Zenoss ZenPacks: Servers & Operating Systems
Monitor Multivendor Server Environments From a Single Pane of Glass

Zenoss monitors the most trusted server and operating system brands, including Dell, HP, Cisco, Lenovo, Microsoft, Oracle, IBM and many others. Zenoss server monitoring software allows you to:

  • Discover system chassis, physical disks, temperature sensors, processors, virtual disks, memory cards, ports, fans and other key components
  • Discover blade enclosures and their management consoles as well as the enclosure components and mapping of slots to blade servers
  • Monitor memory, throughput, disk utilization, power consumption and processor speeds
  • Collect events and forward them to the Zenoss console
  • Map service impact relationships between server and other infrastructure components
  • Provide reporting via the Zenoss console
  • Map utilization over time for simplified capacity planning

Unify In-Depth Monitoring for Server Operating Systems

Eliminate the complexity and overhead of disparate monitoring tools for different server operating systems with Zenoss server monitoring and analytics for Linux, Windows, Unix, Mac OS and many more. Increase visibility and improve efficiency by monitoring all operating system and application metrics from a single platform. For example, Zenoss provides in-depth Microsoft Windows monitoring for Active Directory, Internet Information Server (IIS), Exchange and SQL Server applications in addition to comprehensive monitoring for the base operating system. Zenoss can also monitor Windows Services via SNMP.

Improve Server Troubleshooting & Root-Cause Analysis

Understanding contextual risk and the end-to-end service dependencies that your servers support is critical to effectively prioritizing troubleshooting tasks and expediting root-cause analysis. The unified Zenoss approach offers the fastest path to issue identification, reducing mean time to resolution (MTTR) and enabling you to address problems before business disruptions occur. With a single unified view from Zenoss, you can eliminate the challenge of different teams with different information trying to resolve the same issue.

ZenPacks for Server Monitoring

Zenoss utilizes ZenPacks — plug-ins that are uniquely tuned to the features of each server — to provide ultimate flexibility when monitoring a multivendor system environment. There are hundreds of ZenPacks available that make it easy for you to unify, enhance and extend your server monitoring software for disparate technologies. ZenPacks use standard APIs and protocols and allow you to collect configuration information and monitor specific servers, operating systems and applications without the need for agents. Additionally, for custom equipment and applications, there are multiple ways to create custom ZenPacks that extend the Zenoss monitoring platform's capabilities even further.
