Hi all!

I am looking for a tool that will enable me to track server status remotely. I maintain some 15 servers, and I would like a tool that I instal on each server. The tool should than monitor the status of the server, and report back when something happens.

I searched online, but it seems I could't struck the right keyword combination.


Thanks! :-)

Foglight is the premier solution for performance monitoring and management across multiple technologies (e.g. Java, .NET, virtual or physical servers, databases, etc.) and capturing the experience of users interacting with your business applications.

or

Spiceworks can monitor servers going online/offline and can send you email alerts. You can also monitor disk usage and other metrics:

or

if you are good in Linux, then go for Nagios implementation.

I think you posted your question in the wrong place, but in general you have two different categories for (normal) server scaling:

1. storage
2. performance

For point 1, and if you have server with say 8 slots, you can just add more drives, or replace them with larger when needed

For point 2 it can be harder. You can add RAM to server. You can replace HDDs with SSDs (ultimately). You also can replace server CPU with faster one.

So, just buy a good machine with some free drive slots, and roll on. When needed, you upgrade.

Thank you for prompt response but my question is how to make a plan and assesment to enhance the existing servers.

For example
We have data center with existing servers and need to plan to move in vmware.

So how to diagnose and analysis the old servers.

Is there any tool and how to prepare a report and if you have template please share with us.

Thank you

In that case, the best tool is your eyes :-)

Go write down all machines, and look their specifications online. See the realistic multithreaded performance on GeekBench database, sum everything up, and you know how much you need with you new machine(s).

Rate of growth depends on you, but I say that you leave some 50% overhead, and you are good for a good while.
