Track your company’s network and devices with LogicMonitor.

It’s great since we don’t have to install bothersome agents on the devices or hardware that we want to monitor. I didn’t even need to consult the instructions or contact customer support when I wanted to add a device; the process is simple and easy to follow.

The tool for strategic Managed Services partners

SolarWinds had the big breach just as we left it. We loved how powerful it was, and how customizable – however, it is an ON-Prem tool, and as a growing MSP, that dynamic didn’t and couldn’t scale.

Server monitoring FAQs

What is server monitoring?

Server monitoring is a process through which you gain visibility into the activity on your servers — whether physical or virtual. Servers are devices (or increasingly, applications) that store and process information that is provided to other devices, applications, or users on-demand. System resources related to relevant servers are tracked for specific states and changes. Server performance monitoring can help keep track of the hardware and processes critical for keeping the server functional and can help make sure your system is generally performing optimally.

Why is server monitoring important?

System resources related to relevant servers are tracked for specific states and changes. Server performance monitoring can help keep track of the hardware and processes and help make sure your system is performing optimally.

What is a physical server?

A physical server is a powerful computer — usually stored in a data center for business-use cases. They run operating systems and applications off of their internal hardware resources.

What is a virtual machine?

A virtual server is typically a shared software environment that emulates the functions of server hardware. Virtual servers are commonly obtained from specialized providers that operate infrastructure comprising hundreds of thousands of physical servers, which are located in data centers around the world.

How does the LM collectors determine what metrics to monitor for the server?

When you add a device into monitoring, LogicMonitor applies built-in intelligence to recognize what kind of device it is. Based on the information discovered about the device, LogicMonitor DataSources are applied. DataSources are templates that tell the Collector how to monitor the device, what metrics to collect for the device, how to display those metrics as graphs, and what values indicate issues that need attention. LogicMonitor contains hundreds of pre-built DataSources that are automatically applied when you add devices into your account.
