Help Server Metrics Windows Updates Monitoring

Performance Metrics for Windows Updates Monitoring

Ensure your Windows servers are up-to-date with the latest updates for optimal performance. The Windows update monitor uses the Site24x7 Windows agent for monitoring, i.e. they will be auto-discovered and added for monitoring once the Windows agent is successfully installed. 

Once the Windows update monitor is successfully added to your Site24x7 account,

  • View the pending updates and history of installed updates. Log in to Site24x7 and go to Server > WindowsUpdate.
  • Add a Threshold and Availability profile to declare a specific resource as critical or down. Go to Admin > ConfigurationProfiles > Threshold and Availability (+).
  • View key metrics in a single glance with the server inventory and health dashboards, or create your own.
