Uptime Infrastructure Monitor can monitor and gather performance data from a variety of platforms without requiring an Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Agent to be installed on the monitored system. This functionality is provided by using WMI or standard services and applications already available on the monitored system.

Currently a Windows Monitoring Station is required to utilize WMI Agentless Monitoring.

The following tables provide a summary of platforms that are officially supported by the designated Uptime Infrastructure Monitor version.  Note that this table is updated at the time of each Uptime Infrastructure Monitor product release.  Official support status indicates that the platform and OS has completed full QA testing during the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor release process.  Please contact [email protected] for any questions about versions not listed on this table.

Agentless Platforms

Uptime Infrastructure Monitor also provides basic monitoring capability for the following agentless platforms:

System ProtocolNotes
Net-SNMPUptime Infrastructure Monitor can gather basic performance data from any system running an SNMP daemon that presents information from the hoststatus.mib.
Novell Netware 6.5 NRMUptime Infrastructure Monitor will access performance data from a Netware 6.5 system running NRM via an http or SSL connection. Authentication is required and the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor user must log in with administrator privileges and access to the BasicHealth system screen.
Node MonitoringUptime Infrastructure Monitor will perform service availability monitoring but not gather performance data from these systems.
