Business organizations are increasingly relying on networked applications for their core business activities. If the IT network is disrupted even for a short time, it can have a huge impact on business revenue, productivity and customer service. IT monitoring helps organizations prevent the disruption of business-critical applications and ensure SLA compliance. Some best practices for IT monitoring are mentioned below:

Planning Early

If a new application is becoming live, application monitoring needs to begin right from the start. It gives IT professionals proper time to plan for application performance management across the organization. In many cases, a monitoring solution alone may not be enough and may require additional resources and efforts for a perfect IT monitoring solution.

Being Proactive

One should not wait for applications to face problems before undertaking IT monitoring. Monitoring all the systems should be a proactive and all-time effort, so that problems in applications can be stopped before they occur. Proactive monitoring can be achieved by monitoring the threshold values of various parts of the IT infrastructure like network bandwidth, CPU memory and application health parameters. In case the system crosses the threshold value, a system health check needs to be performed. A proactive health check and corrective action can avoid system and application crash.

Create a service level agreement

A written SLA emphasizes the need and scope of IT monitoring. It provides application monitoring requirements as well as standards to measure the availability of the application. The IT team can work in advance to create a recovery plan which can help meet the service level agreement.

Undertake a recovery plan

An ideal IT monitoring system has a well documented and tested recovery plan so that minimum time is wasted in correcting the errors. Such a recovery plan covers the checklist to be followed in event of an application failure. Having a recovery plan can avoid wastage of time and help bring the application back on track.
