MERETHIS has worked on two types of plugins that can: :
- monitor some elements of system :
- service states when auto-start or service operating ;
- CPU usage rate ;
- disk usage rate ;
- event logs monitoring ;
- files monitoring (presence by name, extension, age, size, etc) ;
- bandwidth usage rate in network interface ;
- virtual or real memory usage rate (paging file) ;
- process monitoring (number, consummation, memory, execution argument, etc) ;
- monitor some applications using WBEM such as MS Active Directory, MS Exchange, MS IIS, MS SQL Server, MS Sharepoint, MS HyperV, Citrix, etc.
The second plug-in is extensible and helps the Microsoft© Windows admin to monitor the application he wants. Indeed, the plug-in uses all collected information that has been described in XML files. If the admin knows perfmon (performance monitor) and how WMI works, he can extract all information he wants and monitor them.
To sum it up, Centreon WMI tools make the automation of monitoring tasks in Microsoft© Windows environment easy customizing control rules and options. Using WMI tool, no more need for local deployment, or tedious configuration…
