What's New

Notifications Interface

We have enhanced our notifications interface—focusing on its ease of use and accessibility—while also streamlining the configuration of our advanced notification engine.

Telegraf Integration

We have ensured that migrating customers do not lose the ability to monitor syslog or SNMP traps by integrating with the powerful telegraf monitoring framework. This method is extremely configurable and easy to extend across large deployments by using TOML-based configurations.

Platform Stability

Enhancing the stability and security of the GroundWork monitor platform—updating and replacing components to stay ahead of vulnerabilities—is a primary theme of every release.

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.

Features

Applications

Wherever your apps publish data, you can gather it in GroundWork and track application health. Put all your apps key performance data in one place for tuning and troubleshooting.

Compute

Virtual and physical monitored servers are the beating heart of your whole business. Monitor every interconnected VM, server, container and more. Automatically deploy monitoring with each scaling event.

Network

With intelligent, unified monitoring that understands your network, you can find out about network issues before anyone else. Auto discovery and topology mapping can stifle alarm storms.

Storage

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.

Discovery

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.

Cloud Hub

Whether your virtualization is on-premise, cloud, or a hybrid, GroundWork has you covered. Our CloudHub connector allows you to connect to the API of your virtualization products and import critical metrics into the GroundWork system with just a few clicks.

GDMA

Leverage your virtualization templates to automatically add monitoring when a new system is provisioned with GroundWork Distributed Monitoring Agent (GDMA). GDMA is a lightweight agent that can be added to just about any device type.

Performance Visualization

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.

Log Analysis

Event data from a monitoring system alerts you to abnormal behavior, but log data gives you actual root cause analysis. With GroundWork’s Log Bridge, you can combine both to give you the whole picture.

SLAs

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.

Networks

GroundWork Monitor discovers network assets automatically, so you can track them with GroundWork Desk whether you or your users were the ones to plug them in. Set policies in GroundWork Monitor to raise a ticket in GroundWork Desk when a traffic pattern you need to know about appears.

Servers

Comprehensive agentless or agent-based monitoring of servers is a core feature of GroundWork Monitor. Get the detailed data you need in your tickets.

Cloud Services

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.

User Requests

When users need help, they tell the help desk. Track user requests alongside incidents, and you can keep your users happier when you solve the right problem at the root of their troubles.

Maintenance Ticketing

If you know you need to upgrade a system, rotate a certificate, or do any scheduled maintenance, your GroundWork Desk ticketing system can help you to set and track downtime on your IT resources.

Redundancy

GroundWork Open Source provides a simple yet robust solution for monitoring redundancy. Our standby notification server provides a full set of GroundWork Monitor functions as a single-server installation or as a parent server if the parent fails or is taken offline for maintenance.

Configuration

A special instance of GroundWork Monitor is configured to mirror the primary server: Receives all state updates from the monitored customer systems IT. Monitors the Primary Parent Server.

Notifications

The primary server produces notifications and serves as the portal. If the primary parent fails, the standby server detects this failure and enters into notification failover mode.

Features

GroundWork Monitor brings your physical, virtual, and cloud-based infrastructures together in one platform.

Unified Monitoring:

GroundWork takes advantage of powerful, open source software components focused on infrastructure and application monitoring (e.g., Grafana) and brings them together into a powerful, supportable platform that unifies data and analysis, reducing the workload of administrators. See your entire infrastructure--physical, virtual, and cloud-based—altogether in one platform. Get all the key performance data from all your apps in one place for tuning and troubleshooting.

Deployment

GroundWork Monitor has been containerized and secured making for a solution that is easily maintained, robust and portable.

Deploy Anywhere 

GroundWork servers can be deployed as instances in OpenStack, VMware, Amazon Web Services, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Small Deployment

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.
