Monitoring stories

improving IT service quality

Sometimes the best way to see how a software tool can help you is to see directly how it has helped others. Seeing a real implemented example can help take out the abstractness of what software does and how it does it.

In this article we'll take a look at the business case for using Alyvix to monitor your networked, streamed and virtual applications. In particular, we'll look at the performance of a Microsoft Outlook installation from the point of view of a client accessing email over the web.

We'll see how Alyvix's visual monitoring approach can bring IT problems to light, helping you both react to user perceptions of slow applications like email and be proactive in preventing problems from even occuring. Read on to find out even more benefits of Alyvix.

It's not always clear how software tools that you've heard described abstractly can be actually put to use in your company in a way that makes business sense.

This article demonstrates the business case for using Alyvix to monitor your networked, streamed and virtual applications by presenting a real world, implemented use case in a Logistics company that uses Microsoft's Dynamics AX platform over RDWeb.

Alyvix's Visual Monitoring approach can help you discover and solve IT problems that end users often face like slow applications, which lead to low productivity. Read on to find out even more benefits of Alyvix.

Monitoring is essential to keeping IT systems running smoothly. Alyvix Server's visual monitoring approach complements typical monitoring systems by directly measuring what users experience. You can explore these measurements graphically to find and certify severe latencies and service interruptions, potentially resolve them and even prevent them from occurring. That's the Alyvix Value.

Because Alyvix uses a visual approach to monitoring, based on how a user experiences the functionality and latency of an application interface, it is highly complementary to more traditional monitoring systems that measure raw system numbers. It also easily integrates with monitoring systems like PRTG ™ that provide the ability to implement custom probes. Read on to see how you can integrate Alyvix Server with PRTG to add visual monitoring graphs to your existing PRTG dashboards and views.

So you've made a few Alyvix test cases, and you want to take the next step to full scale monitoring. Let's say you've also used Checkmk ™ as your monitoring system in the past, so you're familiar with it and you'd like to use it again. Well you're in luck then! This guide will show you how to set up both Alyvix Server and Checkmk to begin monitoring your Alyvix test cases and access Checkmk's dashboards and visualizations.

You use SalesForce Cloud Edition. Or maybe, you have a number of employees who use it. Then you'll want to make sure that they aren't losing time because of network problems or hardware bottlenecks. In this article I'll show you the basic steps you'll need to integrate Alyvix, Alyvix Server, and a monitoring system to both warn you in case of problems, and to visualize historical data for trend analysis or to save resources.
