Monitoring Performance of Groups of Machines on Windows and UNIX

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by CHANGE username to westes, Oct 24, 2003.

  1. I am looking for a low cost application that will show key performance
    monitor metrics on large groups of Windows 2000 computers. The key
    requirements are:

    - Ability to specify each computer's name or IP address

    - Ability to remotely gather key performance monitor statistics.

    - Ideally, the application would gather the obvious things like memory, CPU,
    and disk statistics without a painful user interface that requires careful
    thinking and selection for each computer from a long list of possible

    - Ability to use persistent groups of counters and apply these to machines
    or groups of machines as a template.

    - Ability to show each machine's statistics in small performance graphs that
    are layered on the screen, row by row.

    - Ability to show statistics for groups of machines (for example, you might
    have one graph for all web servers, another graph for all load testing
    client machines, another graph for all database servers, etc).

    - Ability to see anomolous behavior of any one machine in a group of
    machines on the group graph.

    - Ability to quickly break down the groups of machines into graphs of the
    individual machines.

    - Bonus points if it can also graph memory, disk, and CPU for UNIX machines
    of different flavors.

    - Cheap is usually better than expensive.

    - I'm particularly interested in finding any shareware implementations or
    implementations from smaller companies as we may have a requirement to
    eventually license this code for incorporation into one of our commercial

    A variety of inexpensive applications that will meet your requirements can be
    found at - look under 'network monitoring'.
