We can monitor and test numerous items, including any Windows Service or Linux Daemons, HTTP, HTTPS, POP, SMTP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, DNS, SSH, FTP Logins, Router paths, CPU utilization, hard drive space, number of connections. We can always create custom program to watch over anything unique to your network.
Interval Audit Service (IAS)
While we believe in automation and technology, sometimes you just can't beat a real human being! This service provides a professional auditor who meticulously checks essential components of your servers at an interval of your choice after business hours. This frees you up to do what you do best and lets our IT professionals do what they do best...keep your system healthy. Any suspicious errors or abnormal activity are promptly referred to technicians for followup. The components included in the check are:
- status of backups
- disk freespace
- health of disks
- apply critical operating system updates including restart of server
- insure antivirus definitions and scans are current
- report of any unusual antivirus activity
- check event viewers for unusual errors
An optional service included in IAS is checking your connected workstations for critical updates on a quarterly or semiannual basis. If a workstation appears to be operating sluggishly during this check, the auditor does a disk cleanup and sometimes a defrag so your machines are optimized. This minimizes emergency calls on both the servers as well as the workstations.
A single server audit usually takes 15 to 30 minutes depending on whether a restart is required and can be requested on a weekly, semi weekly or monthly basis. A small investment that has paid off for many of our customers!
