Server monitoring

Monitor the health and performance of your entire server infrastructure with LogicMonitor’s SaaS-based monitoring platform. Using LogicMonitor’s lightweight, agentless collector, ensure complete visibility across your on-prem and virtual servers, instantly and automatically.

Get started

Rapidly deploy and optimize servers

Comprehensive server monitoring requires more than simple CPU and memory alerting, but shouldn’t need a lot of configuration. With LogicMonitor, enter an IP address for your server – whether on-premise or in the cloud – and you are done. LogicMonitor will automatically detect, monitor, and alert on: CPU, Memory, Network, and many other OS metrics for Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, and more.

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.
