Performance Metrics of OS X Server Monitor

Interpret OS X Server Monitoring Results

Install and add an OS X agent and monitor your OS X servers to measure important performance metrics including CPU, memory, disk utilization, network traffic and more from a customizable and unified console. Know how the agent sends complete performance metrics every 5 minutes to the Site24x7 data collector where users can view their reports via their browser.

Various parameters and metrics can be obtained by accessing the following tabs:

Device Snapshot:

In-depth analysis and study can be made for every parameter listed under the Device Snapshot tab. By clicking on the desired parameter, a detailed synopsis opens up in a new window, which can be sent as an email or exported as a PDF/CSV file. Reports can also be generated for a specific time period, by using the drop down on the top left corner of the page.
