Real-time data monitoring (RTDM) is a process through which an administrator can review, evaluate and modify the addition, deletion, modification and use of data on software, a database or a system. It enables data administrators to review the overall processes and functions performed on the data in real time, or as it happens, through graphical charts and bars on a central interface/dashboard.
RTDM primarily helps in monitoring and managing the consumption and use of data across a complex IT system or on a standalone software/database. Typically, an RTDM software/system provides data administrators with visual insights into the data, which is fetched from various sources including Web server logs, network logs, database logs and application usage statistics. It can also provide instant notifications/alerts into specific data-driven, administrator-specified events, such as when a data value goes out of range.
