The main purpose of this module is to monitor and control the services on servers, client machines, hosts or physical devices.
By “service monitoring”, we mean that if a service running on a system crashes, becomes unresponsive, etc, then an alert is generated and displayed in the “Application Performance Monitor” section of BLËSK. An alert is also sent by e-mail to the specified administrator(s).
By default, the services on the management console (the BLËSK server) are already monitored. In fact, you can find out immediately if BLËSK is working properly or not. It can also serve as a good example of how to use the available features.
The tools (Tabs) available with “Application Performance Monitor” are as follows and appear in the top part of your interface.
For an easy way to add hosts to be monitored, see the Network Device Discovery Quick Start guide.
