Obkio Launches the Network Device Monitoring
Obkio: A Montreal company that is developing a network performance monitoring solution has launched it's most important feature release since it's first product December 2018.
After more than a year of collaborative work with enterprise customers and MSPs, Obkio realized that companies were not all at the same level when it came to monitoring their networks. Many enterprises simply don't have any visibility on it.
Pierre-Luc Charbonneau, VP Sales & Marketing at Obkio comments: "Problems reported by most of our customers were always the same. There is a lack of time and resources in IT departments and most monitoring solutions on the market require a significant time investment and are often too complex to implement."
Monitoring the performance of networking devices such as firewalls, routers, switches and wifi access points is crucial for IT teams. The Device Monitoring feature inside the Obkio Software is a fast and easy solution that provides detailed information about the health of devices. Combined with the end-to-end Network Performance Monitoring features, it helps IT teams pinpoint issues very quickly.
The Device Monitoring feature has three great advantages when compared with other solutions on the market:
Advantage #1: It's easy!
This means that no technical expertise in SNMP, OIDs or MIBs is required. Add the device that you wish to monitor and the software will get what it needs. No servers are required, all the data is sent to the Obkio Cloud and is available inside the App.
Advantage #2: Performance monitoring with fast polling
With Fast Polling (every 60 seconds) and Ultra-Fast Polling (every 30 seconds), the results are far more precise than the traditional software polling, which occurs every 5 minutes. This way, short bursts of traffic or CPU utilization that affect the network performance can be detected and the root cause of the performance issue can be pinpointed quickly by the IT team.
Advantage #3: Polling from inside the network
There is no need to establish VPNs between a centralized monitoring server and the LANs where the network devices are located because all the polling is done by an agent that is inside the LAN.
