Monitoring your network share with Login PI
A network share is a critical component in the IT infrastructure of any organization to store and open files. But what would happen if your colleagues can’t reach their corporate data for some time? What if it takes minutes to open or write a file to the network share? This would probably mean a serious loss of time. Many monitoring solutions give you the ability to monitor the I/O load on your SAN or fileserver. These tools often also have the ability to monitor the network. But what if the drive mapping fails? What if your fileserver is saturated? Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to monitor the entire chain from the perspective of an end-user? Today is your lucky day because in this blogpost I will explain how you can monitor your network share with Login PI.
