Preventive Systems Monitoring
Preventive healthcare for your computer system
What is Preventive Systems Monitoring (PSM)?
Preventive Systems Monitoring is a suite of enterprise-class sensors that are deployed onto a computer system that observe data vital to the health of your network connected devices.
Data such as temperatures, component utilization, security updates and data backup integrity are monitored 24/7 to ensure they are well-within normal operational ranges.
Essentially, PSM is a system put in place to ensure your computer system stays in top shape and your data stays safe.
How can your business benefit from PSM?
Preventing data loss, down time and potential catastrophic disasters
The monitoring of essential components within your computer network enables proactive detection of potential problems that may lead to costly downtime. If a problem is caught early, potential downtime may be greatly reduced.
Keeping Your Data Safe
By monitoring data storage devices and backup systems, problems such as hard disk failure can be easily detected and appropriate actions taken before a complete loss of data occurs.
Prevent Potential Disasters
Monitoring your system can decrease potential disasters such as a complete failure of a critical system that is essential to your daily business operations.
How does it work?
Your computer system is fitted with a variety of sensors. These sensors will observe vital information such as CPU temperature, remaining hard disk space or when your data was last backed up. This information is then analyzed in our monitoring system on a 24/7 basis. With this data we can determine the overall health of your system as well as the functioning state of each individual component.
Our servers constantly monitor sensor data of your system to ensure the values are within proper operational range.
When data from a sensor goes outside normal operational range this is detected and our team is notified immediately.
Once our team receives notification, an investigative process will promptly begin to determine the cause and potential problems that could be arising.
After an in-depth assessment by our team into the issue, the client is contacted to discuss the next step in resolving the problem before it potentially worsens.
Once a solution is agreed upon, implementation of the solution begins in order to ensure a smooth recovery.
What We Monitor
Monitoring of essential vitals that keep your computer system running such as temperature, fan speed, and hard disk health.
Monitoring of key security items such as latest operating system and anti-malware updates to ensure your computer system is secure from threats.
Monitoring of your data storage and data backup systems to ensure your data is safe and is being backed up on a regular basis.
Monitoring a variety of temperature sensitive components such as CPU, RAM, and hard disks ensuring their temperatures are well within normal operating range.
I's essential to have the latest security updates for your system to ensure protection from potential security threats. This monitor will check to make sure the latest updates are applied to your system.
Monitoring of available space on your storage devices ensuring you have enough free space to store important backups or valuable data.
Complementing temperature monitoring these sensors will monitor your cooling systems to ensure your devices are being properly cooled.
Having the latest security updates isn't enough. It is also essential that your malware protection systems are up to date with the latest definitions. This monitor will check to make sure these systems are up to date.
These checks make sure backups are being completed and are passing data integrity checks ensuring your backups are 100% complete and ready if in the event future data recovery is required.
A system running at it's max will cause slow and sluggish performance. By monitoring the utilization of computational components we can determine potential bottle necks and slow downs in critical systems.
Monitoring of critical hard disk vitals such as RAID integrity in your server or S.M.A.R.T. disk status in a workstation to detect potentially failing hard disks.
Monitoring of your UPS (uninterruptible power supply or backup power supply) to ensure various factors such as line voltage, battery health, and temperatures are all within normal operating parameters.
