Glossary Data center monitoring

Definition

Data center monitoring is a process through which the status and performance of a data center is controlled and managed. Specific metrics are tracked in real time and alerts or notifications are sent if preset thresholds are not met. The data that is captured from this activity can be stored, analyzed, and displayed in business intelligence and analytics dashboards and reports.
