Multi Agent Based Framework for Monitoring Servers, Server Room Environment and Devices.
Server and server room administration has always been a daunting task for many administrators and mangers. The server room mainly house many servers and computers which need close monitoring in terms of space and uptime. The environment itself has to be just right for the servers to function normally. That is the temperature has to be right and the humidity has to be normal also. When the mentioned concerns are not as required the services uptime and availability are affected. Many premium and open source solutions seem to have a structural and execute in a serial way, this has it downside especially with the emergence of new powerful hardware with extended resources like disc space and memory which need to be utilized effectively. The extended use of technology is evident from increase of portable technology like PDA and smartphones thus this necessitates the need for high uptime and service availability and hence the need for effective and efficient monitoring. In this project we propose an innovative solution for an effective monitoring of server room environment using multi agents. The proposed model uses parallelism technology and background workers in order to achieve effective monitoring. The finding shows that the use of agents will achieve high effective monitoring of devices and server environment and thus increase high uptime and service availability.
