Windows monitoring refers to the process of tracking Windows server performance metrics to identify and diagnose problematic trends or issues and optimize the availability and performance of Windows servers and the applications that depend on them.
Typically, Windows monitoring is carried out by collecting and analyzing key performance metrics, such as CPU usage or disk space, and may involve establishing baselines, looking for bottlenecks, and forecasting capacity needs. Windows monitoring can help firms decide on the best time to upgrade their servers and assess the performance impact of upgrades and other changes made to their Windows systems.
The benefits of Windows monitoring
In addition to helping you ensure the optimal performance and availability of Windows servers and applications, implementing Windows monitoring can enable you to:
- Achieve greater resource usage efficiency—spend less on unnecessary hardware
- Maximize your Windows server ROI
- Isolate and solve problems before users are affected
- Protect the digital experience delivered by applications running on Windows systems
Implement Windows monitoring easier and more effectively with the right tool
Instead of depending on Windows utilities, which can be cumbersome and difficult to use, many firms are now leveraging enterprise monitoring tools to implement Windows monitoring more effectively—and save time. Why spend hours and hours manually assembling and examining data collection sets when there are powerful monitoring tools that can provide you with the relevant data and actionable information you need when you need it?
