The new way of network monitoring with Rimscout
We now know that you need to adapt your classic network monitoring for cloud services and why collecting data from a server room is only of limited use. Only monitoring from the individual client to the cloud applications used by the user provides a complete and meaningful picture of your network environment. In this way, users’ performance or connection problems can be found quickly and narrowed down locally. This is an important aid, especially when working from home.
But even your self-operated services can be viewed as a “cloud service” that is only located in your own data center and has never been detected from a client until now. In addition, users working from home also use local services, such as VPN servers, terminal servers, or line-of-business applications, which you can monitor in the same way.
With Rimscout, you complement your classic network monitoring with a view of the individual clients, making performance or connection problems visible directly to your users. After you have started the Rimscout client on the desired end device, it automatically registers with your tenant’s portal. In the background, the client downloads the stored tests and immediately starts the selected measurements. The results arrive in your tenants, processed, so that you as an administrator can evaluate the respective status of your clients or also summarized of your locations via the Rimscout portal.
