Server Monitoring Software

Definition - What does Server Monitoring Software mean?

Server monitoring software is a type of software that reviews, analyzes, monitors and manages the processes and operations of a server.

It is used by server administrators to keep track of the performance of one or more servers within an IT environment.

Techopedia explains Server Monitoring Software

Server monitoring software primarily provides server administrators with server-wide performance, availability and security metrics. It can provide data such as:

  • CPU and RAM utilization
  • Number of suspicious/malicious packets and/or intruder attacks
  • User load
  • Bandwidth consumption

These results are sent to network administrators so they can optimize server performance. Server monitoring software can be a standalone application or a component of network/IT monitoring software. Moreover, it measures and provides statistical and/or visual reports into processor, memory, storage, applications as well as network and other server metrics.
