What is infrastructure monitoring?
Often IT infrastructures are comprised of multiple locations that include both public, private, and hybrid cloud deployments. But most IT teams fail to identify blind spots in their environment and correlate problems before they affect end-users. This hampers the productivity of the organization. IT monitoring becomes more complex as infrastructures become denser and more dispersed. IT infrastructure monitoring is the implementation of a built-in knowledge base to automatically identify availability problems and performance bottlenecks across your technology stack before productivity is compromised.
Infrastructure monitoring includes the physical layer of your organization, utilization and depletion of your IT systems, bandwidth consumption and errors in the network, and application performance issues. The need to analyze the data quickly can be accomplished with automation. It allows IT personnel to dedicate resources to high-value initiatives, instead of chasing down avoidable system issues.
