This article describes how to set up monitoring in your environment.

Step 1 - installing agents

  • Server hardware and software, such as CPU, disk usage, services, etc.
  • Log files (e.g. Windows event logs)
  • Active directory performance
  • MySQL
  • Apache
  • Network channel quality, SNMP devices, printers, etc.

You do not need to install a private agent, if you want to monitor:

  • Website metrics (availability, response time, etc.)
