More often than not, what defines a server is the software that runs on it. Watchman Monitoring checks on that software to make sure it’s operating correctly and will report critical information such as availability, utilization, license expirations, proper backup functionality, and more.
It’s never a matter of “if” your hard drive will fail, but “when”. That’s why it’s so important that you not only backup but also regularly check if that the backup is being completed successfully. Luckily, with Watchman Monitoring, we do all the checking so you don’t have to. We will alert you if we see backups not being performed as expected.
Running low on disk space can happen suddenly and when it does, it has real potential to corrupt a system and cause data loss. Watchman Monitoring can alert you well before that ever happens. We’ll also alert you to any disk input/output (I/O) errors (a precursor to a drive failure), SMART errors, boot disk selection changes, false mounts, and more.
We’ll help you avoid costly downtime due to RAID failures from Apple and SoftRaid by warning you at the earliest signs of trouble. Combined with our world-class backup monitoring you can rest assured knowing your data is secure.
Slow network performance can be caused by things like poor cable quality, failing network hardware, or even your ISP having a bad day. We’ll help narrow down the cause by alerting you when there’s an excessive number of network errors. We can even let you know when a computer’s IP address changes.
Keeping a computer running at its peak performance is easy with Watchman Monitoring. We’ll alert you to productivity-robbing issues such as failing laptop batteries, kernel panics, faulty RAM, unscheduled reboots, and even failed power-on self-tests (POST) which usually go unnoticed.
No single malware detection software can find all threats. Watchman Monitoring helps out by providing an additional layer of malware checking to your existing solution.
While we’re rummaging around inside the computer looking for problems, we also report back other helpful information such as machine name, last logged in user, serial number (including warranty status if GSX account enabled), RAM, model number, OS & firmware versions, maximum OS version, processors, uptime, last check-in, and more.
As we check the health of your computers, our agent will automatically gather expiration dates from Backblaze, CrashPlan, Kerio Connect, and more. Receive weekly or monthly email notifications of impending expirations, and sync to your calendar with an ics feed.
