Global organizations typically have infrastructure distributed across different branch offices and data centres. Enterprises will have a large number of IT infrastructure assets that need to managed and maintained. In such scenarios, distributed monitoring is an essential tool for understanding performance bottlenecks and capacity utilization of infrastructure assets. Customers need a robust and scalable monitoring solution that can handle the complexities of distributed infrastructure.
Distributed Monitoring Solution Architecture
Typical Enterprises have global operations with multiple branch offices spread across the world. A distributed monitoring framework is required for handling such scenarios. The centralized network operations centre (NOC) helps gain insight and control of the entire infrastructure, where as local monitoring framework helps in providing local control and administration of IT assets as needed.
Benefits of Distributed Monitoring
- Scalability and Load Factors:Distributed monitoring can scale very well since the work load is now shared between the different monitoring servers. For enterprises having thousands of infrastructure elements (servers, routers, storage devices etc), distributed monitoring is the only practical solution.
- Access Control over Local Assets:It is easy to set up local administrators who are responsible for monitoring local assets (such as a branch office). These local administrators will have limited access rights restricted to a group of IT infrastructure assets. Some organizations also need multi-tenancy support that allows different administrator groups with different levels of access control over groups of assets.
- Centralization of Business Critical Assets:The global administrator can look at the entire global infrastructure through the central, global dashboard. He can focus on the most critical business assets while the less critical assets can be handled by local administrators.
