What ServerPulse will do for you:
It will give you peace of mind.
That is exactly what it did for our own consultancy business when we first used the service.
Just imagine: Your client doesn't call you because his server is down. Instead you'll call him first
What will that do for your relationship with your client?
This is what ServerPulse will do for you:
- If one of your servers stops working the ServerPulse web server will send you a text message to your mobile phone and an email.
You’ll know exactly which of your servers stopped working and when it happened. You can then decide what to do about it – call someone to put the plug back in :) , restart a virtual machine by remote access or go on-site to check yourself. Once the server is back online you’ll get another notification.
- ServerPulse will also notify you if a disk drive starts filling up or a process eats up all the memory. That means you can do something about it before it causes bigger problems.
We love this feature ourselves because as Microsoft Exchange consultants we see it happening frequently: Exchange shuts down because of the dreaded error message “452 4.3.1 insufficient system resources”, meaning low disk space. And the system administrator never saw it coming without ServerPulse.
- And just to be sure you can use our website and our free apps to check the server status on your mobile at any time.
How it works:
The small ServerPulse monitoring program you install on the server runs in the background and checks in with the ServerPulse web service over the internet once every minute. It sends a very small data packet with the processor load level, memory usage and disk drive free capacity.
Your ServerPulse web account receives that information and compares the values to configurable warning levels. If any measurement is out of bounds or if the server fails to check in for more than 2 minutes it’ll send you a text and/or email notification.
