Perfect solution to monitor all your Microsoft servers


PRTG Network Monitor from Paessler is the perfect solution for monitoring your Microsoft servers. This allows you to monitor not only the virtual Microsoft servers in your network but also the underlying physical servers.

In addition, many predefined sensors are available for monitoring a Hyper-V environment. Even in distributed environments, you always have your Microsoft servers in view and can react in time to avoid a failure or malfunction if necessary.

 
Microsoft server

Why is monitoring your
Microsoft server a must?

Microsoft servers form the backbone for applications such as Exchange, SQL, or file servers in many companies. Therefore, it is important that the server, the application the server hosts, and the communication between the individual servers runs without errors.

For example, even a small problem with a SQL server can affect many other applications. In the worst case, it can lead to a complete failure.

3 use cases where PRTG can help you

Solve problems at the hypervisor level

Solve problems at the hypervisor level

Usually, if problems occur with the servers that provide the virtualization layer, such as Microsoft Hyper-V, many virtual servers are affected. Especially at this level, it is extremely important to have an overview of the existing systems in order to be able to act quickly in case of problems. If a host fails, this can mean an IT standstill, especially for smaller companies or a single location.

Ensure the smooth functioning of Microsoft virtual servers

Ensure the smooth functioning of
Microsoft virtual servers

In addition to the physical hardware, special attention is paid to virtual Microsoft servers and their virtual hardware. The most common problems in this context are insufficient free disk space, services that are not started, or a high utilization of CPU and RAM. All of these can make a virtual server react extremely slowly or can even lead to a failing system.

Keep an eye on your application servers

Keep an eye on your application servers

Even if the hypervisor and the virtual server that provides the platform for various applications work correctly, Microsoft applications can unfortunately experience problems. For example, if the Microsoft Exchange or SQL database server does not work smoothly, this not only frustrates the administrator and users, but can also mean a financial loss for the company.
