Performance monitors

Hi all,

I have the desire to set up a "monitoring computer" which will have the purpose of monitoring all the different services and performances of the network, servers, network printers toner level, etc.

I don't have problems with printers, SEPP, DLO, Backup Exec, CCTV, etc but how can I monitor the network and servers performance? I mean, is there a way to see a graph that shows when the network traffic is high or low? or when a server is reaching its bottle neck? or when the Ubiquiti AP's are too busy?

Thanks.

Yep. That ubiquiti right there at the end pretty much indicates you want a full monitoring solution. Nagios comes to mind. If you want to dip your toes in the water and not maintain more infrastructure, OMS might be an option.

Thanks John,

Windows Resource Monitor for Windows machines can be accessed through the network from the "monitoring computer"? Solar wind and Nagios are free or licensed?

Thanks Cliff,

I realized that Ubiquiti has their own web based tool, thanks! OMS are free?

I still have the question mark on the network traffic monitoring.

Solar Winds and Nagios are not free although I think Nagios is cheaper. Both will monitor network traffic. Choose the one that fits you best.

NetCrunch appears to be what I need but it depends on budget approval, meanwhile I'm using Windows Performance Monitor. Thanks.
