Kx Monitoring

Kx Monitoring gathers and displays information about the status of an environment in real time. It offers the ability to monitoring any number of servers within a system tracking critical server and process tatistics. Each server requires a SysMon Java application installed and running to collect run time information, while the Kx Dashboards provide powerful tools for visualizing and analyzing the current and historical state of the system. As well as an active real time view of the status of an environment Kx Monitoring offers powerful out of the box Alerting for potential system issues before they occur. The same Alert framework provided within the _Kx Platform can be extended to allow additional alerts to be implemented as required from the Monitored data.

The dashboard displays an overview of the current state of the system. It is an aggregated view across all processes running on all servers.

Free and used memory for all servers within the system. This can be useful in identifying the servers using the most memory.

Server CPU

Busy and idle percentages for all CPUs in each server within the system.

Server disk space

This graph displays the free and used disk space for each server defined within the system.

Server alerts
