Secure environment, secure network – gapless IT infrastructure monitoring
Efficient network and environmental monitoring is essential for fulfilling lawful requirements and for the flawless operation of business IT. The combination of the Kentix MultiSensor technology and the Paessler PRTG Network Monitor offers the ideal solution. Find out how easy it is to monitor the entire IT infrastructure without gaps and to have it at a glance always!
Advantages of the complete solution of Kentix MultiSensor technology and PRTG:
Complete IT infrastructure monitoring for all major threats with redundant alarming
Minimum effort for installing, configuration and maintenance of the system
Systems are compatible with each other – smooth integration
Manageable investment – ROI if only one outage can be avoided
“From my own experience, I can say that Kentix and PRTG really do work together smoothly. We have implemented such projects for several customers already – with great success.”
Kentix MultiSensor® technology provides physical values for your network monitoring
The Kentix MultiSensor® technology monitors your IT rooms and cabinets for all major physical threats. The different measurement and alarm values are also provided via SNMP and can therefore be integrated very easily into network monitoring solutions via a Management Information Base (MIB). This way, all important parameters and critical conditions of your IT infrastructure can be shown in one surface. One of these network monitoring solutions is the PRTG Network Monitor by Paessler.
PRTG Network Monitor – Efficient IT infrastructure monitoring made easy
PRTG offers complete IT infrastructure monitoring. Ideally, the system detects and reports problems before the user even recognizes them.
The values that PRTG reads from servers, routers and other devices in the networks are indicated by so called sensors. Each sensor stands for a parameter that is observed by PRTG. The configuration of these sensors – from initially adding them to defining thresholds for alarming – always follows the same pattern.
Here, we will explain to you how it works in a few simple steps.
With the Kentix MultiSensor technology and PRTG as your network monitoring system you have two solutions at hand that will lead you to your goal the easy and secure way:
IT infrastructure monitoring for all major threats with redundant alarming while at the same time keeping efforts for installing, configuration and maintenance of the system to a minimum.
Kentix AlarmManager as SMS gateway
Moreover, the AlarmManager can be used as SMS gateway for the alarms received in the network monitoring system. It is controlled with a simple HTTP command. PRTG offers according notification options for this matter.
Monitoring the PRTG server
PRTG uses the existing infrastructure to send alarms via e-mail or push notification. But what if that is where the problem lies? In the worst case, alarms cannot be forwarded to the responsible persons.
The Network Monitoring that is integrated into the AlarmManager monitors up to 50 devices in the network for availability.
The advantage: If the request fails several times in a row, the AlarmManager sends out an alarm – not via the network in this case, but additionally via SMS.
The ideal addition for existing as well as new systems
The two solutions offer the ideal extension for each other due to their variety in features and options. Advantages and added values are obvious. Whether it is an extension for an existing system or a completely new setup – the cost for investment is manageable and become profitable at the latest when the first outage has been avoided.
Gapless IT infrastructure monitoring – ingeniously easy.
