Microsoft (News - Alert) SharePoint is close to industry standard for all kinds of business- and enterprise-level interactions. File management, business intelligence, collaborative activities, and search are all part of the SharePoint package—so when the web application is running slowly, it is felt at every level of the company. Latency issues affect customers, as well, so it’s vital to be proactive in the search for latency problems. Ideally, customers and most employees would never even sense the issues by the time they were solved, but that isn’t always the case.
Firms have come to rely more and more on the reliability and consistency of their mobility solutions. As a result, when working with enterprise mobility technology, a single hiccup in service can stymie an entire product line:
Latency, in effect, represents the above catastrophes on a smaller scale. Rather than a complete collapse of the system, access is bottlenecked by a certain underperforming component of the network. In order to fix these problems, it’s important to understand what causes latency:
These problems are only the tip of the iceberg, as any user familiar with SharePoint will tell you. Luckily, industry experts like GSX have developed and distributed powerful solutions, starting with their innovative approach to monitoring:
User-Centered Monitoring GSX was built to be agent-less. Behaving as a silent Robot User, GSX monitors user-side systems and interactions to give potent feedback, more meaningful than just server uptime. It can set up on any computer or virtual machine to operate and analyze in real time.
By assessing the QoS (Quality of Service) of the Messaging and Collaboration environment you identify areas for improved performance, availability, reliability, and efficiency from an end user perspective.
Preventive Problem Solving
By monitoring the active domains of SharePoint infrastructure, GSX can alert agencies to problems before any serious issues occur. Most problems are intercepted before any real damage, keeping mean time to repair low and preventing administrators from having to fight fires.
Simple, Effortless Installation
GSX has absolutely zero server footprints. All monitoring occurs in the enterprise network, alongside business users. Not only does this method bypass the hassle of approving software installation on central servers, but the user-side monitoring also allows GSX to predict and prevent risks to the most vulnerable parts of mobile services. Thanks to our seamless integration with BlackBerry (News - Alert), IBM, Microsoft services, and existing application performance monitoring platforms, implementing GSX is always as smooth and simple as humanly possible. We can start protecting your agency today, not next month.
