When You Use PEI, Your Environment is Protected by our Network Monitoring System™
Work with PEI to improve the performance and stability of your network with our Network Monitoring System™, which we’ve built to provide increased visibility into and control over your network compared to over-the-counter monitoring solutions used by other Managed Service Providers.
If our system finds something strange when polling or monitoring your devices, we’re notified immediately, so we can fix the problem before it affects your network.
Critical device alerting mechanisms allow for automatic notification of on-call engineers after-hours.
We’ll continually poll your devices, setting up our polling intervals and procedures to meet the specific needs of your environment.
Our syslog monitoring and customizable alerting lets us know whenever something is happening in your environment. If we can see the issue in syslog, we can alert it.
Get detailed reports on events—including which devices were affected and why they went down—system health, and usage.
Our reporting features also include trend analysis, to provide insights about the utilization and growth of your environment over time.
Our ability to monitor and graph a variety of heath metrics over time helps us to improve stability and predict health problems before they happen.
Set up configuration change alerts, so you know what changes have been made, when they were made, and who made them.
You’ll have access to both live and historic data that’s exact—our solution doesn’t normalize data like other providers—to give you richer insights into your environment.
Have data not accessible via SNMP? Our system allows for graphing of metrics even if they are only accessible from the CLI.
Our monitoring solution automates the configuration backup process, so you never have to worry about losing your configurations.
Keep track of your devices—including their serial numbers—with automated inventory backups.
