Server Monitoring is monitoring the health and status of servers on a network, such as current CPU usage, free disk space, etc. Some solutions require a software agent to be installed on each monitored server. Agentless Server Monitoring
will do the same monitoring, but does not require any software installed on target servers. Agentless server monitoring is generally preferred because it requires no configuration changes to the target server, and
does not add one more piece of software that has to be managed.
Agentless Server Monitoring with PA Server Monitor
PA Server Monitor is an agentless monitoring solution. It monitors servers and devices across the network using standard protocols such as SNMP and HTTP, and also device-specific protocols such as the Windows Performance Counter and Event Log protocols.
