What is IT monitoring?
IT monitoring is the ongoing monitoring of processes and operations for their functionality. The smooth operation of the IT infrastructure is the overriding goal of IT monitoring.
To ensure smooth operation, problems and their causes must be prevented. Problems must be identified at an early stage and eliminated as quickly as possible.
IT monitoring is used to monitor that all components are within their defined thresholds. Systematic logging allows data to be analyzed and trends to be identified in order to make decisions for the future.
