Opsview High Availability Server

Always-on IT demands always-on IT monitoring. Opsview Monitor High Availability (HA) protection ensures that you never lose IT infrastructure visibility.

If something should happen to your primary Opsview Monitor system, monitoring will automatically fail over to a secondary system. This hot standby system will assume the identity of the primary Opsview Monitor system and the responsibility for all monitoring, alerting, reporting and data collection. 

This switchover is an automatic, seamless process that ensures Opsview data collection continuity and is completely transparent to the end user.

Opsview Monitor HA operates at the OS and application level, designed to provide high availability protection for Opsview Monitor installations without requiring any specialized hardware.


  • Business continuity with real-time monitoring of your Opsview implementation
  • Near-instantaneous, automated failover for your business critical IT monitoring system
  • Time saving and error reduction through the automation of failover tasks
  • Performance tuning of your Opsview implementation
  • Best-practice knowledge transfer to your IT team

What’s in the box

Opsview Monitor HA is a complete software and services package. With your IT team, an Opsview consultant will review your monitoring system, understand your HA needs, and recommend your optimal configuration.

If needed, our experts will upgrade you to the latest version of Opsview Monitor, and then ensure that your installation is performance-tuned for optimal monitoring. They will then work hand-in-hand with your IT team to deploy, configure and test your HA installation to the reference architecture below.

Opsview Monitor HA includes all of the additional licenses that you need to create a second installation of Opsview Monitor.

Optimal configuration

In order to minimize the failover time, it is important to consider the physical location of the primary and secondary IT monitoring servers. Opsview will advise on this during the initial review. Performance tuning of your monitoring system, and then testing of your HA system, will allow you to determine your particular failover time, and capture the service level agreement (SLA) that you will be able to provide to your business.

Due to the requirements for physical near- or co-location, Opsview HA is not intended for disaster recovery scenarios. If you require this, Opsview provides Opsview Monitor Disaster Recovery software and services package for such situations.

Professional services packages

The required expert professional services are all included in the fee for Opsview Monitor High Availability due to the critical nature of installation, configuration and performance. The duration will depend on the size and complexity of your Opsview monitoring system, and will typically be 3-5 days.
