Network & Resource Monitoring -
Bytemon Benefits & Features
Monitoring the availability and usage of network and computing resources plays an important role in
most businesses and organizations.
To be able to manage networks components and computing resources proactively it is vital to have a
comprehensive monitoring system in place.
The Bytemon Windows service runs on one or more Windows machines in your network 24 hours
a day and collects information on network and resource usage.
The collected information is made available either as raw data or in the form of highly customizable
Data Acquisition Methods
Bytemon supports several protocols and methods for resource data acquisition:
- Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Bytemon is able to collect data from all kinds of SNMP-enabled devices, supporting SNMP versions 1, 2 and 3. SNMP data encompasses network traffic, processor loads, ambient temperature, disk space and the like. When monitoring network interfaces, Bytemon is capable of dealing with shifting interface indexes.
- Network Packet Capture and Filtering (WinPcap) Packet capturing can be used to count network packets passing one or more of the physical network interfaces of a computer with Bytemon installed.
This allows detailed analysis of network traffic: ie. which hosts were sending or receiving packets of some particular network protocol. Bytemon uses the industry-standard WinPcap libary.
- Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Bytemon supports querying WMI to gather operating system performance data. Though some of the data available using WMI is available using SNMP as well, WMI queries can be sampled at shorter intervals and are more suited to provide real-time information.
- Custom data sources Using Bytemon's command line interface, users can input numeric data from arbitrary sources into Bytemon's data base, and make it available for charting and reporting.
To get you started, the built-in Quickstart Wizard provides you with a complete view of key performance variables of your local system and the network with just a few mouse clicks.
