The monitoring process itself is usually carried out automatically using application software. For a small IT infrastructure – for example, a pair of servers — monitoring is optional, since it can be monitored by a single administrator.

Automatic monitoring is used by medium and large companies. Such systems are specialized software with extensive capabilities. Examples: Icinga, Zabbix, Nagios, online and cloud services. The functionality allows you to:

— monitor host resources: CPU, disk, RAM usage
— monitor the operation of network services, including POP3, SMTP, HTTP

— collect detailed event statistics and create reports

— set up and send out alerts

— predict and prevent failures

— plan infrastructure development

— keep records of the quality of service (QoS)
