SAM 6.2 Beta – Because Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut – Part 3
As promised, the long awaited and highly anticipated Server & Application Monitor (SAM) 6.2 Beta is now available for download. The premiere feature of this SAM beta is the new optional agent, which is intended to address key environmental scenarios where conventional agentless monitoring techniques are either impractical or impossible to leverage. Some of these scenarios include, but are not limited to, monitoring Windows hosts within the DMZ over a single fixed port; monitoring servers in remote branch offices over high latency, low bandwidth connections; or monitor the servers you have hosted in cloud based services, such as Amazon EC2, Azure, or Rackspace. For even more examples you can check out Part 1 and 2 of this blog series at the links below.
