Central SharePoint Farm Monitoring

We don't have to tell you but SharePoint is a complex piece of software that manages everything from how pages are served to an end-user, to search indexing, to the storage of objects with your SQL database server. Just like SharePoint's central administration that views all of these capabilities from one location, it's important to have one view of the health and performance of your SharePoint environment – content, servers, SQL and network. Even more importantly is to be able to view SharePoint as a Farm, a specific set of servers and supporting infrastructure (I.e. development, testing & production) so you can create the right alerts and reports based on that farm's requirements.

Proactive Alerts Based on Customizable Thresholds

No-one likes the red-emergency phone to ring, taking you out of your daily routine. And end-user is having issues and now the troubleshooting becomes more complex as people watch and wait. Whether you have a single SharePoint farm, or dozens, you can avoid those calls with a system that not only monitors your environments, but also sends you alerts before an outage occurs. Customize your content growth, network connectivity, SQL performance thresholds for your environment and receive an alert when the threshold moves to a warning or an emergency level. You can either avoid the call altogether, or have an answer when it rings.

Save Time Troubleshooting, Unified ULS Logs

SharePoint is unique, and requires care to understand how to troubleshoot. With not only the possibility of many SharePoint farms in an environment, but also hybrid solutions connected to Office 365 it's become even more complicated. In these modern scenarios it is useful to identify potential issues with your network, content database growth, SQL performance, and the availability of Office 365 from a single location. Even better, instead of logging into multiple servers to review logs (ULS to be exact) imagine viewing all farm information from a single console. This centralization allows you to identify SharePoint or its supporting infrastructure as the potential issue.

Optimize Page Performance

Within both a SharePoint publishing or collaboration environment there are always key pages that the designers and end-users expect to perform within a certain timeframe. But by giving power to content editors and team members it's possible that features can be added to the page, taking it out of its designed performance range. In this situation it's important to not only see the overall page load time, but the specific information about the SharePoint content on each page. This allows you to review out-of-the-box web parts all the way to fully customized solutions in a test environment before affecting end-users in production.

Hybrid Monitoring, On-premises and Office 365

SharePoint Hybrid is a reality. Moving from multiple versions of SharePoint (yes, it's true) in one environment, to a combination of on-premises and Office 365. Certainly there's a reduction of dependencies within the cloud, but your page performance is still important, you content growth can still be an issue, and certainly it's important to understand if an underlying Office 365 service is not available, before your end-users start calling the help-desk. Whether you're in transition from on-premises SharePoint to Office 365, or will be hybrid for awhile imagine having one location to monitor both of your environments.
