Monitis Adds Support for Solaris Platform

Monitis customers can now monitor Sun Solaris machines.

Press Release

San Jose 14 July, 2009 Monitis Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based enterprise-class systems management software as a service, today announces the release of remote monitoring agent for Solaris platform from Sun Microsystems.

Monitis monitoring agent is a small-footprint, easy to install code that is part of Monitis cloud based, distributed monitoring platform.  The agent runs on clients’ machines, collecting and transmitting information on performance and configuration of the machine, as well as the whole local network, including other servers and devices.  The information gathered is transmitted to the central Monitis server, through corporate firewalls. The new agent is available for installation on both Intel and Sparc versions of Solaris OS from Sun Microsystems, provided as open source.

The central application takes steps to find out and check agent breakdown. By receiving messages on a regular basis form agents, Monitis will be able to decide whether there is a problem. If there is one, corrective measures will be taken. Agents never use local storage, and hence, any information gathered is recorded in a separate central database on the main server. As agents use HTTPS protocol to transfer data, it is not necessary for them to have changes on the firewalls. The whole process- right from the user registration to the establishment of remote monitor- will be completed within a few minutes.

Both Linux and Windows agents are largely used by the Monitis community, which numbers up to 50,000 users.  Recently, FreeBSD support was added, and this, combined with the new Solaris addition, allows users to monitor true distributed and heterogeneous infrastructure.  Monitis combines the robust features of agent-based technology with the simplicity of agent-less technology.  This combination enables effortless systems management for its customers.
