What Is Network Topology?
In this snip, we'll go over how to set up an AWS EC2 instance in WhatsUp Gold 2018. Once we've got our host set up, we'll then create a simple monitor to be notified when the EC2 instance is stopped.
The world is getting ready to watch the opening ceremonies of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. IT teams may find themselves behind the game, though. They might be spending some time over the next 16 days dealing with the consequences that the event will have on network bandwidth and application performance.
As networks continue to grow and become more complex, it becomes more important every day to have the right network monitoring solution to keep your business up and running.
If data is the lifeblood of a company, bandwidth is the diameter of the veins through which this data travels. Cheesy medical analogies aside, a blockage or high-pressure bandwidth usage results in issues that compromise the integrity of your office wall to wall.
The idea for server virtualization technology was originally conceived as a means to reduce costs through software consolidation. Looking back it seems like a pretty obvious solution, but at the time this was revelatory. Instead of running each individual workload on a separate physical server, unused hardware capacity was now able to be used to run a number of workloads at the same time as virtual machines.
In this blog post, we take you through a few of the ways you can use WhatsUp gold to monitor physical servers—from server health to utilization.
Jeff Ryan leveraged WhatsUp Gold to develop an innovative and effective remote learning solution for the over 2500 students, faculty and staff of the Danville Area School District
When your business is growing so is your network. Even when business isn’t booming (thanks economy) your business’ infrastructure can be evolving too. What you need is a software tool that’s able to manage these network configuration changes for you.
Your entire IT infrastructure has to be constantly reviewed in order to ensure the health of your virtual environment. Here are some best practices you can use to ensure that your virtual environment remains stable and reliable.
Unfortunately, no one template can guarantee 100-percent system stability. There are, however, guidelines any sysadmin can follow to define policies and procedures that proactively ensure your network doesn't have a random fire drill.
You can think of device roles as a template for the way that your network monitoring tool interacts with a device, ie. the configurations and monitors that it applies to the device.
Most people in IT, especially security, have worked with some form of code. Whether it's for automating system tasks, performing network monitoring or developing full-fledged applications, understanding certain scripts is necessary to keeping support running every day.
When pilots talk about things getting busy in the cockpit, they mean something very specific: clanging alerts, paralyzing uncertainty and the ground getting closer.
