Our network monitoring service allows us to track a device's status via multiple approaches. We can track a multitude of different types of variables that when recorded and reported on over a time period can show trends in usage and availability. This information can then be used to forecast the amount of growth a system can withstand before it will need to be upgraded to a more powerful system or device. The most obvious perk of outside monitoring is the ability to alert us when a system or device goes down. When this service is purchased as a standalone service, these alerts will be forwarded to the contact on file for affected system or device.
