Universal Server Monitoring System using ThingWorx
Most organizations have multiple servers for data-centers, applications, etc. and each of these environments have their respective system monitoring needs. Typically, organizations deploy diverse system monitoring tools to monitor each of these systems for usage, performance and availability. These diverse set of standalone tools have limited capabilities and often cannot be integrated with other tools. The implication is that the organizations need to maintain multiple tools resulting in high cost and maintenance. It can also adversely affect informed decision making when information from multiple systems in needed real-time. In this session the presenter discuss how ThingWorx can be effectively deployed to connect different server environments (HW and SW) to create a Universal Server Monitoring System. The session also covered a brief demo on how to use ThingWorx Mashups and Edge Micro Server (EMS) to create a system monitoring application.
