Server Monitoring Benefits

LogicMonitor server overview dashboard

Rapidly monitor server health

Quickly drill down into CPU, memory, and many other OS metrics from your servers. Track your server-based applications such as databases, mail servers, and web servers. Go beyond basic server monitoring and see how the performance of your servers correlates to cloud instances, virtual machines, RAID controllers, physical drives, battery systems, interfaces, and other hardware.

Managing the Pagerduty Delivery integration in LogicMonitor.

Keep your teams informed

Automated reporting and ITSM integrations with ServiceNow, Ansible, PagerDuty, Connectwise, Slack, and more to help teams communicate, troubleshoot, and optimize IT infrastructure rapidly.

This dashboard provides an a listing of various metrics that are monitored for Linux servers using SNMP or SSH. The metrics displayed are status, real-time CPU utilization, real-time memory utilization, real-time storage utilization, CPU utilization over time, memory utilization over time, storage utilization over time.

Automate server discovery

Advanced network scanning and automated deployment make discovery simple – just add the hostname or IP address of the device you want to monitor and LogicMonitor does the rest.

This dashboard provides an overview of Alerts. The metrics displayed are status by resource type, geolocation of resource groups and a listing of all alerts.

Reduce alert noise

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.
