Larger applications, vendor appliances, power and environmental systems and other aspects of the datacenter often have specific monitoring requirements. Applications such as MS Exchange, MS SQL Server and other Database platforms, VoIP phone systems, SAN arrays and Virtualization platforms have aspects that need to be monitored and maintained beyond the standard port and resource monitoring. These applications and systems often have custom SNMP configurations that allow this advanced, more specific monitoring. Our systems are either already aware of these applications or can be enhanced to understand what is necessary to accurately monitor and alert on the status and performance of the advanced system or platform.
