Considerations when choosing a hardware & infrastructure monitoring platform

Your Challenges

  • Disparate vendors and types of hardware to monitor
  • Geographically dispersed hardware among multiple datacenters, potentially collocated with 3rd party hosting providers
  • Sub-optimal methods for identifying and adding new device types and manufacturers, including servers, switches, storage, etc.
  • Inconsistent monitoring configurations and disciplines
  • Additional monitoring infrastructure just to collect SNMP on top of base monitoring

Your Needs

  • A single, standardized approach and solution to ensure that monitoring is consistent and pragmatic
  • Global metric collection fed back to a single vantage point
  • Full-featured, viable SNMP polling and trap ingest
  • Consistent and standard alerting and notification with high value filters easily applied
