GFI MAX RemoteManagement to Monitor Linux Servers
Cloud communications provider GFI is set to soon monitor, report, and alert on all important aspects of Linux servers via GFI Max RemoteManagement, according to a blog by GFI’s Scott Calonico from last week.
Linux severs, which often run the most critical applications, provide proactive monitoring for increased uptime, faster fixes, and a raise in IT services profits. Additionally, the beta agent will cover Red Hat (News - Alert), Cent OS, and FC, and following the launch, GFI will be developing SUSE, OpenSUSE, Debian, and Ubuntu monitoring.
What does this mean, though, exactly? Well for one, if you’ve found yourself with a multitude of before, different server systems, you will soon be able to monitor all of them from one single dashboard. If that’s not exciting enough, GFI MAX RemoteManagement will also provide 24x7 monitoring to alert of problems with customers’ servers. This ultimately means that individuals will constantly be in the know about issues before customers find out, thus being able to fix the problems more efficiently and easily than ever before – all without having to or risking the chance of disrupting your business.
Even more, using the Daily Safety Check enables users’ access to an excellent understanding of client servers; when pricing a full-fledged managed services contract, you will already have all of the information needed to make an accurate assessment.
Additional features of the Linux 24x7 and Daily Safety Checks include being able to monitor the following:
- Log Files
- Partition Space
- Daemons and processes
- Anything that can be scripted
Many individuals are happy to see such a big application adopt Linux support and have been flooding the Web with their opinions, expressing how this new move will greatly improve efficiency and detect inconsistencies before they become too much to handle.
GFI Software will be exhibiting at the ITEXPO West 2012. To be held Oct. 2-5 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, TX, ITEXPO (News - Alert) offers an educational program to help corporate decision makers select the right IP-based voice, video, fax and unified communications solutions to improve their operations.
