Receive early warning when users are experiencing poor response times. Measure end-to-end response times using Ipswitch iMacros and iDrone software extensions to create monitoring scripts to run anywhere in your network.
Get alerts on component and application-level dependencies. Define multiple application states for alerts such as up, warning, down, maintenance, and unknown. Configure blackout policies for alerts and actions such as suspending alerting on weekdays between 9 PM and 6 AM.
Create multi-step Action Policies that fire on a state change such as one that, on down state, immediately writes a log entry, kicks off an action script to reboot the system five minutes later and sends an email notification ten minutes later.
See what's up and what's down instantly whether in the cloud or on-premises.
