Everyone used to agree that: an IT monitoring perimeter is a pain to keep up to date. But today, this is a myth. Connectors, often called “plugins,” do all the heavy lifting, ensuring instant, comprehensive and accurate monitoring for optimal IT performance. Connectors are used to extend IT infrastructure monitoring to all domains. Think networks, cloud, virtualization, databases, applications, servers or other hardware and storage assets, up to unified communications elements like VoIP and ToIP. In short, connectors are prepackaged kits you download to instantly find and integrate an IT device to your monitoring platform.
