Smart Monitor

SmartMonitor offers proactive, end-to-end IT performance monitoring for Citrix & VMware to ensure a positive end user experience. It provides complete support for monitoring virtual server, virtual desktop and hybrid cloud environments, and provides specialized modules for certain EMR/EHR applications and NVIDIA GRID vGPU.

SmartMonitor has been architected from the ground up to help IT administrators anticipate end user experience issues, troubleshoot the root cause, and deploy remediation actions quickly before end users complain.

AEG’s SmartMonitor provides complete support for monitoring the entire SmartFT environment, including metrics from the Hypervisor, directly from the virtual machines via an agent, and the associated physical infrastructure. This is distinctly different than other monitoring solutions that are limited to only those metrics provided by the hypervisor, and do not include granular data about the virtual machines and their applications or the physical environment. SmartMonitor provides “Comprehensive monitoring of the virtual infrastructure”.

Features and Benefits

  • Comprehensive Virtual Monitoring: There is no hypervisor limitation (Vmware / Citrix Xenserver).
  • This is distinctly different from other monitoring solutions as they are likely to be limited to only those metrics provided by the hypervisor which don’t include granular data about the virtual machines and their applications or the physical environment. SmartMonitor provides “Comprehensive monitoring of the virtual infrastructure”.

  • Citrix XenCenter / Vmware VCenter Integration:
  • In addition, the SmartMonitor UI integrates with Citrix XenCenter / Vmware VCenter via a Tab plug-in so that the XenCenter/Vcenter console can be leveraged for a seamless operation.

  • Not Just Virtual Servers:
  • As a complete and comprehensive monitoring solution SmartMonitor has the ability to monitor all of the components in a modern IT infrastructure from a single console. SmartMonitor has support for monitoring all Windows Operating Systems, and deep monitoring of associated Windows applications, including Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange Server, IIS, and third-party applications such as Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop. SmartMonitor also has support for monitoring all Linux/Unix variations, from RedHat to Solaris, including HP-UX and IBM AIX. Finally, SmartMonitor monitors the underlying network and storage infrastructure.

  • Intelligent Agent and Agentless Capability:
  • Providing the IT user with ultimate flexibility, visibility, and control, SmartMonitor is both agent based for monitoring Windows, Linux & Unix, and agentless when collecting data via SNMP Traps, Syslog messages, and from the virtual hypervisors. SmartMonitor also integrates basic network device monitoring via SNMP Traps and Queries, SYSLOG messages, and basic proactive PING, HTTP, and other IP service checks.

  • Intelligent Agent:
  • Able to capture deep diagnostic metrics with little resource utilization, typically less than 0.1% of CPU & Memory utilization, and a 1.2 MB footprint. Finally, any agent can be designated a “master agent” and then be tasked with capturing SNMP Traps and SYSLOG messages from any such enabled device in your environment. If an SNMP Trap or SYSLOG alerting condition is triggered, the “master agent” will then send alerts to the SmartMonitor server.
