Clearly define the system and network monitoring objectives
The main objective is to diagnose weaknesses observed in the system.
Monitoring aims to capture all the important actions and performance indicators at different levels of the systems (material and applications).
The objective is threefold:
- detecting anomalies and/or problems in real time and being able to act on them,
- analysing the system load to detect trends, find correlations and forecast future needs (processor, RAM, disks, network etc.), and
- recovering and analysing all the system logs and relevant applications in order to detect and correct errors.
