Watch GroundWork Monitor in Action
GroundWork Monitor Enterprise is a powerful IT monitoring software for physical, virtual, and cloud-based infrastructures. GroundWork can monitor your entire IT environment. If you use it, we can monitor it.
GroundWork Keyed Contact Addresses
GroundWork Messenger now includes the ability to create unlimited user-pickable email addresses and phone numbers per contact. This enhances the customizability and readability of any complex notification setup which depends on many contacts.
MRTG Network Device Graphs
Some network devices will now trigger consolidated traffic graphs automatically, depending on supplied metrics. This is seen in the new “Traffic” tab in the per-service data visualization on the Status Dashboard
Grafana Datasource Update
GroundWork 8.7.0 now runs alongside Grafana 9 for visualization of graph data. This includes an updated datasource, as well as the ability to render dashboards as images for use externally
SMTP Servers in GroundWork Messenger
A second automatically-switching SMTP server can now be configured as a backup. Reliable receipt of alerts is one of the most important components of any monitoring software.
GroundWork Monitor™ Enterprise
IT Monitoring Software from Diamanti
When you’ve made the shift to cloud-native and Kubernetes creating a more involved, hybrid infrastructure—with systems in the cloud, virtualized in your data center, on bare metal all generating thousands if not millions of individual data points—you want a monitoring solution designed for that level of complexity with the latest AI and machine-learning capabilities.
That’s when you want GroundWork Monitor™ Enterprise from Diamanti
GroundWork Monitor delivers visibility into IT environment
GroundWork Monitor delivers complete visibility into your entire IT environment. No hunting around across different point solutions. Very simply, if it’s attached to your network—physical devices, virtualized data centers, public clouds, containerized apps—GroundWork can monitor it and bring the data (and the analysis of that data) altogether in a single pane of glass.
Simplifying your entire Digital Transformation Journey
Virtualization, microservices, containerization—these IT advances have led the way to significant operational improvements and economies of scale, but also to much greater complexity.
GroundWork is designed for the way IT environments operate today. Taking advantage of the latest open source and AI-based capabilities, GroundWork delivers deep, holistic monitoring that adapts and adjusts dynamically to your changing environment, allowing you to focus on business instead of tracking down problems and enhancing and simplifying your entire digital transformation journey.
Poor storage I/O and capacity planning can bring an organization to its knees. GroundWork delivers the monitoring and analysis you need to stay on top of complex storage environments.
Get a handle on your ever changing infrastructure environment with GroundWork’s Discovery monitoring tools that will intelligently assist your initial installation as well as automatically detect changes and adjust monitoring.
Identify choke-points and performance bottlenecks, both short-term and long-term. With integrated Grafana, GroundWork delivers powerful and flexible visualization so you can create and share time-series dashboards of all data or any monitored event.
Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are the backbone of IT management. The structuring of IT into service delivery and service management organizations under ITIL/ITSM has made the SLA a primary method of setting expectations for services. GroundWork’s SLA Management feature allows you to administer SLAs and measure your business service performance.
Moving to the cloud? Already there? Maybe two or three clouds? We have you covered with Cloud Hub connectors that can quickly scan your provider’s API for the metrics you need to run your business.
GroundWork servers can be deployed as instances in OpenStack, VMware, Amazon Web Services, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.
A minimal, single-server deployment of GroundWork Monitor can give visibility into the welfare of hundreds of servers in one or two locations. Typical deployments at this level involve running GroundWork Monitor in active polling mode using two-or three components such as Nagios, Cloud Hub, and NeDi.
Enterprise Scale Deployment
Enterprise-scale deployments are more varied in form and can involve several GroundWork servers in a parent-child configuration, or in distributed configurations. Large deployments frequently make use of software distribution and configuration automation tools such as Ansible, Chef, or Puppet. Another feature of large deployments is the separation of components onto separate hosts for scaling purposes.
