Given the 24x7x365 nature of today’s business, uptime and availability of critical resources play an important role in determining the success of an organization. To ensure business continuity, organizations must overcome unique challenges every day. One of these challenges is downtime.

Downtime is disruptive, costly and unacceptable in today’s competitive business landscape. Downtime can happen due to several reasons ranging from accidental data deletion to application failure to advanced cyberattacks. Without a robust Network Monitoring solution in place, a downtime event can result in costly consequences and tarnish your business reputation.

Whether you’re selling software, SaaS, or digital products, your online store needs to have processes in place to ensure that you’re operational around the clock––and avoid consequences that go beyond revenue loss.

In the world of digital commerce, downtime is equivalent to turning customers away at the door of your brick and mortar store. There’s nothing stopping customers from navigating away from your site or visiting a different site to find an alternative, costing you a lost sale and worse – potentially a lost customer. When your income depends on the availability of your site, you need measures in place to ensure your business runs smoothly and continuously.

Effective network service monitoring is important to ensure that action can be taken by an IT administrator in the event if a service running on a system crash or becomes unresponsive. It is important for a network administrator to identify a service failure before it affects the end users or customers. However, in practical terms, it is difficult for system administrators to identify system failures beforehand, considering the number of resources required to monitor the services manually.

blësk Application Performance Monitor (APM)

blësk’s all-in-one network monitoring solution enables system administrators to detect and overcome service outages before it affects the end users and customers. One of the features of APM module allows to view the status of all the service groups from the service group menu, which helps to identify if there are any Warnings or Critical errors that exist among the services.

blësk’s Application Performance Monitor (APM) module creates an alert in the event of an interruption within the network. This alert is also sent by e-mail to the specified administrator(s) to notify them about the issue.
