What can CapMon do for you?
Are you CIO/CFO or IT-manager?

Are you a network administrator?
As a network administrator it is important to be able to see the status in the network.There are many ways of getting a good overview of the network, and with CapMon you can tailor the view as it suits you best. Views could contain the status on all of the network equipment, performance in uplinks, errors in interfaces or when the latest backup of the key equipment was created.
CapMon gives you the opportunity to see how performance and errors have changed over time. Compare historic statistics with the most recent values gathered from the network. Configure thresholds and receive alarms when these are exceeded. On top of that, you can even add different statistics to brand new statistics that can be monitored going forward.
Are you a server administrator?
As server administrator it is important to be able to see the status in both hardware and operating systems log files, as well as status for the important services and processes. By using CapMon you can monitor all these important components via WMI, SNMP, Telnet and syslog. CapMon has a syslog server build-in as a core component. This makes it possible for you to be aware when specific issues arise in the monitored equipment. You can see the performance of CPU, memory consumption and lots of other important information, including disk usage. You can see how this information changes over time, and you can even project a trend line to see when a disk is full, and when the server will need more memory with the current load.
By using the build-in trend module you have the opportunity to enter a date in the future. CapMon will calculate the expected values, based on historic values, and you can choose to receive an alarm when configured values are reached in the future. You can also build your own personal Dashboard that will show you exactly what you want to focus on.
Are you an applications’ administrator?
For you as an applications’ administrator it is important to know whether the application is working or not.
It might not be important if a switch or a server is not functioning. If you have redundant or clustered environments, where you typically can deliver stable performance on your applications, if only some hardware is running and available for the end user.
On a CapMon dashboard you can create your own personal overview for what you need to focus on. You can create multiple tabs for each of the applications requirements and dependencies of server and network. Often, you also want to focus on your current SLA level, to document availability and desired performance. SLA charts can be added to your live updated dashboard.
Are you a Webmaster?
The web servers and applications are vital to the company public profile. They are what the customers see and are often the central gateway for gathering information about the company.
It is of great importance that they are functioning and up and running with a high level of availability to the customers. Also, performance matters a great deal, when it comes to the overall user experience of the company.
Lots of analyses and reports show, that if a customer waits for just a couple of seconds, they get restless and moves on to the next company. Response times and availability are crucial and should be monitored constantly. This gives you the possibility of receiving alerts and messages as soon as anything is performing in the wrong direction.
Are you working in a Help desk/Support department?
