Are there any Thwack templates that monitor critical Windows server functions availability? Something similar to Appinsight for SQL but for Windows Server 2008 and 2012.
I'm sure we could pick a few services to monitor but I'm wondering if anyone has a pre-made template. I don't like re-inventing the wheel ...
Or maybe there's a SolarWinds product for this?
We're also looking for a similar product or template for Linux, also for monitoring NFS volumes being mounted or testing ssh availability.
In specific we've noticed instances where a server has hung. Due to RDP issues or in a frozen shut down state. Often our basic SolarWinds node/app monitors don't indicate an issue, other than some might be in an unknown status.
We go through the same thing - servers are up and accessible ICMP but RDP is not available. Happens during patch weekend every month.
What the world needs is an RDP synthetic login check, rather than a port check for 3389.
