Network monitoring is essentially your eyes and ears, alerting you to problems as soon as they happen. You as an individual simply cannot keep track of everything all at the same time while performing your own work duties, which is where network monitoring from a London based IT support company comes in dead handy.
Network monitoring as supplied by us at Network Fish, a company that offers full IT solutions in London, helps you to keep track of everything from software installations, hard drive space to maintaining your email workflow – and much more.
While a decent network administrator is okay, an excellent one goes the extra mile, identifying problems as they happen, intercepting them and thereby preventing any issues.
Let’s take a look at a few things our PRTG system constantly monitors and why it helps solve problems before users are affected.
Our Network Monitoring Watches Web Traffic And More
Your network will be limited by the amount of bandwidth your employees can share. If one of your employees is using up a huge amount of bandwidth at any one time, it creates a traffic jam that limits what everyone else can use on that network.
You might try and solve this issue by using network switches. But what can sometimes happen here is that another switch becomes overloaded, which empties out all your others!
Our PRTG system allows you to see where spikes in traffic are occurring, and they let you see how evenly spread out your devices really are.
We Provide London SME’s With Backup Monitoring
Backup monitoring can be a complex, thankless task that takes up a lot of time. Just think of all the key backups you need to monitor:
- Operating system
- Tape backups
- Cloud backups
- Online backups
This is just the tip of the iceberg. We at Network Fish use a system that displays all backup solutions and problems at a quick glance, allowing it to instantly alert you whenever there is an issue.
Monitoring Email Flow
A working email system is super important to the efficiency of your business.
Despite its importance, you probably don’t check it very often to make sure that it’s still working seamlessly. You don’t have the time, we get it.
Network Fish provides a network monitoring service that automatically sends and receives emails every ten minutes to ensure that your email system is still working in tip-top condition.
Monitoring Your Hard Drive’s Health
Let’s face it, hard drive failure is a major headache. Not only that, but it’s a massive inconvenience which can set you and your organisation back by days.
If you don’t monitor your network or have a handy backup solution, hard drive failure can actually be catastrophic.
Our PRTG system provides hard drive health monitoring; we constantly monitor RAID drivers to let you know whenever a drive has failed and needs replacing.
We don’t just alert you to the failure, but we help you troubleshoot the problem, thereby ensuring that you get the solve the problem faster than you otherwise would have done.
Watching Your Disk Space Before It Runs Out
Low disk space can lead to a sharp rise in a lack of productivity at your organisation. This is because low disc space causes your operating system to become slow and unstable, leading to noticeable slowdowns that can hinder the progress of your employees.
Worse still, low disc space means that your operating system will be unable to safely secure the RAM requirements that are needed to run your programs at tip-top performance. This is not even to mention the corruption of emails and SQL databases.
As part of the IT support services that we provide, Network Fish’s PRTG system constantly monitors the disc space on your servers, freeing up space to avoid any disastrous implications.
Network Data Monitoring
There are lot of things on your network that you won’t want to lose. These may not be physical objects, but could be things such as IT service contracts. Knowing exactly when they’re going to expire is key, so it’s important that you keep on track of them.
Although this kind of thing might not be at the top of your list when working with a network monitor such as the one provided by our IT support team at Network Fish, it handily provides additional benefits, such as saving you money.
Our PRTG system gives you advanced notice of when your IT contracts are about to expire, ensuring that you have enough time to find a new deal.
