Office, Home Office, what about Beach Office? It doesn't matter how remote your workers are, they need to be able to connect securely to the Main Office so they can access all their files and data as if they were in the Office. And VPNs are the main way this gets down.
As an IT administrator, how can you ensure that the VPN server is always up so people can get their work done? Use Alyvix and Alyvix Service to continually check the state of your VPN from outside your company, where your remote workers are. Read on to see how.
Visual monitoring is an exciting complement to traditional monitoring that allows for full, end-to-end monitoring. Beyond monitoring just your hardware, it checks that your apps and services are always as responsive as your users and customers expect them to be. Alyvix Service and Alyvix work together to monitor your apps, delivering reports and historical data that you can use to both diagnose specific problems with your apps, and to help foresee IT problems before they affect your users. Let's see how.
Today we take a look at the entire Alyvix Service lifecycle when it's used together with a monitoring system. We build a complete test case from scratch that uses Remote Desktop (RDC) to log in to a remote server, run an application there, and receive and review reports that include timing data and screenshots of each measured task step.
Many IT administrators already have a fully configured monitoring system that they've invested a significant amount of time in, including setting up contacts for notifications and alerts, learning the data analysis tools they're now familiar with, and more.
This conceptual exploration (and the accompanying video) illustrates how an Alyvix Service can be integrated into the NetEye 4 monitoring system with a potential implementation. It also describes the Alyvix Service API that will enable full, native integration with any monitoring system via a RESTful approach.
