Bruceb Consulting – Now With New Improved Monitoring

Definitely not a picture of the bruceb consulting office. Click on the picture to see something closer to reality.

I am pleased to announced a new service for my loyal clients: real-time server and networking monitoring.

This is the culmination of months of evaluation and testing. It represents a higher level of service that I’ll be delivering to my clients, at the same time that I’m helping reduce technology costs by handling problems before they turn into crises.

SERVER MONITORING

For less than $1 per day, I will set up 24×7 Round-the-Clock Monitoring that will check your server’s critical systems every fifteen minutes. Whenever it sniffs a problem, I’ll get an email showing the exact nature of the problem. That means I can fix it faster – and boost your overall uptime.

Every fifteen minutes, Bruceb Consulting 24×7 Server Monitoring will:

  • Check that your server is up and running.
  • Check that you can connect to the internet.
  • Check your Windows Services, vital components of your server’s operating system.
  • Check disk usage to ensure it’s below a set threshold.
  • Check RAID devices to ensure that all disks are functioning correctly and data is safe.
  • Check your backups to ensure that vital information can be recovered after a crash.

DAILY HEALTH CHECKS

My Daily Server Health Check monitors the most important aspects of your system each and every morning, ensuring everything is working correctly – and alerting you when it’s not. I’ll run a daily check of:

  • Drive space change
  • Physical disk health
  • Hacker attempts
  • Exchange Store database size
  • File and folder sizes
  • Event logs

I’ll send you a short start-of-day report – before you even arrive in your office – showing the exact problems if any are found. You can fix them yourselves – or you can ask me to help.

If I find no problems, I’ll still send you a short note showing that I have checked these critical systems and that everything is in order.

WORKSTATION MONITORING

For $1 per workstation per month, I’ll set up a similar monitoring system on each workstation in your network. I’ll get alerts if a problem develops during the day, and I’ll run a Workstation Health Check every morning and include the results in your daily report.

CLIENT PORTAL

If you subscribe to Bruceb Consulting’s monitoring services, you’ll be able to log in at the Bruceb Consulting website and see any issues that have developed, any time. I’ll supply login credentials so you can log in at http://dashboard.bruceb.com and view the current status of all your systems.

REDESIGNED BRUCEB.COM WEB SITE

This is a big deal! I’ve redesigned the bruceb.com web site to give you more information about the monitoring and reporting that I’ll be doing for you. There are fewer jokes but there’s lots more information. Go take a look around! I’m terribly proud. (Also tired. I hand-code the site in HTML because I’m not smart enough to learn CSS and modern web site design languages. This is as good as it gets.)

I’ll be contacting many of my clients in the next couple of weeks to go over this service. If you want more information and you haven’t heard from me, give me a call!
