Mungkinkah monitor SDN dengan PRTG ?

Whether we’re talking with the press or with analysts, the acronym SDN comes up again and again, combined with questions regarding PRTG Network Monitor and Paessler’s position on the topic. Even our clients are continuously confronted with the matter and ask us what SDN actually is, whether they need it and if PRTG supports it. It’s time to shed some light on SDN and do a little explaining. What Is SDN? Simply put, SDN is network virtualization. SDN stands for Software Defined Networking and indicates decoupling of the so-called control plane, or control level, from the data plane—the level on which data is moved around and on which hardware (switches, routers, etc.) is located, in addition to raw data. The control plane communicates with the data plane via OpenFlow protocol, for example, which is managed by the trade organization Open Networking Foundation. The application plane is a level above the control plane and is where applications run.

Why SDN? The following are reasons for—…

Monitor Ping dari beberapa lokasi dengan PRTG

Monitor Ping Times from Different Locations Worldwide A few weeks ago we've presented the Cloud HTTP sensor, which enables you to keep an eye on the loading time of a web server via HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) from various locations worldwide. Today we want to focus on another brand-new sensor that also uses the PRTG Cloud to enable monitoring from different international locations: The Cloud Ping sensor. Just add the web server you want to monitor to PRTG as a device and then add the Cloud Ping sensor to this device—and you're ready to start monitoring! The Cloud Ping sensor shows ping times from various locations worldwide
We have set up the PRTG Cloud, which is by the way also used to deliver push notifications to your smartphones running one of our PRTG apps, to provide you with data from remote locations distributed over five continents around the globe: Asia Pacific: SingaporeAsia Pacific: SydneyAsia Pacific: TokyoEU Central: FrankfurtEU West: IrelandSouth America…

Cluster Support for Remote Probes: Failover Nodes Show Remote Probe Data

Cluster Support for Remote Probes:
Failover Nodes Show Remote Probe Data We have good news for all of you who run a cluster installation of PRTG Network Monitor: You can now connect all of your remote probes to all of the failover nodes in your cluster! This lets you take full advantage of PRTG's failover functionality: You can see the monitoring data from all of your locations and receive alarms when your remote probes detect sensor errors, even if your primary master node fails. No matter whether you're using remote probes to monitor distributed locations or to spread the monitoring load over several machines, your remote probes can now be part of your cluster. Cluster support for remote probes at a glance
The main objective of PRTG's clustering feature is to provide high availability for your monitoring environment. Running a cluster installation maintains the uptime of your monitoring, without degradation due to failed connections, failed hardware, or during software up…

Pilih DCIM atau Intllegence Patch Panel ?

Complete control of your IT infrastructure leads to faster incident response, cost savings, increased staff availability, and automation of routine tasks. But “control” involves much more than managing data connectivity and patch panels. All equipment should be documented and managed throughout its lifecycle to provide a total view of the data center’s physical infrastructure. Active patching solutions (“intelligent” patching) document patches on the active patch panel and focus on data connectivity management; away from active panels, however, these solutions provide management through paper work orders. This requires multiple manual updates, and is subject to error. DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) is an alternative to intelligent patch panels. Cormant-CS captures full information about the entire channel of connectivity, including infrastructure and assets. We’ve seen productivity and asset utilization increase by anywhere from 20% to 50% after deployment. Here are a f…

Unified IT menggunakan ManageEngine OpManager

Comprehensive IT Operations Management Software for Data Centers and Large Enterprises Most companies today rely on their IT for delivering business services to their end users. Any delay or disruption in the service delivery will affect the business very badly. IT teams strive hard to keep the MTTR to the lowest so that they can achieve their SLAs. However, it is easier said than done because IT involves various layers such as network, server and storage, and application. Without knowing where the fault is it is impossible to fix it quickly. To spot the problem area quickly, a fair amount of knowledge into each of the IT layers is necessary. Only in-depth monitoring of these layers can provide such insights. On the other hand all these information should be able to correlate with other layers so that a root cause of the problem can be found without wasting much time. Single console for entire IT operations management OpManager with its plug-ins offers visibility into network, server…
