The same capabilities that make LogMate a great solution for managing and responding to critical alarms also apply to other types of notifications. Rolling out this alarm management solution to monitor non-critical systems will help you get more out of LogMate. It will also improve visibility over important processes and make you more responsive.
LogMate supports a wide range of alert notifications
The International Society for Automation establishes different alarm classes. Examples include safety alarms, personnel protection alerts, product quality notices, and environmental alarms.
While these alarm classes should be at the core of your alarm management strategy, you might also need to monitor a different category of signals, namely, non-critical events.
The alarm monitoring features of LogMate carry over to these non-critical signals. Plus, the user-friendly interface will help users easily identify critical events from non-critical events. Users won’t get overwhelmed and can focus on only those events that make sense for their job.
You can improve existing processes by monitoring events and notifying users in real-time. These systems might not be mission-critical. However, their performance can impact productivity or costs.
There are different benefits to consider. You’ll get better visibility over different systems. You will also be more responsive. Monitoring non-critical systems can even help you respond to an issue before it spreads to a critical process.
How to expand your LogMate infrastructure
Adding non-critical data sources to your current LogMate infrastructure is easy. You can use additional ports to collect data from new sources.
Our technical team can help you. Because you’re using existing infrastructure, the cost to add another interface is very low. And LogMate’s flexible connectivity features allow you to work with a wide range of sources.
Use cases for monitoring non-critical alerts
The following use cases are examples of the type of non-critical systems you can monitor using LogMate.
Monitoring non-critical assets
Many businesses use machines or storage facilities that keep products or materials in a precise state. LogMate can collect data from these non-critical assets. It will improve your visibility over equipment performance or storage conditions.
For instance, pharmaceutical research facilities often have to store materials within a specific temperature range. With LogMate, it’s easy to monitor the status of a refrigerator in real-time. Users can adjust it or move samples if there is a notification of temperature deviation.
LogMate can help you deal with common security challenges. You can keep an eye on notifications from motion detectors, smoke and high-temperature sensors, door open-close detectors and more via a single interface.
Some aspects of your ingress and egress management solution may fall within a critical alarm category. However, monitoring non-critical events can give users an idea of when something unusual is happening. The result is a faster response time. It will improve safety, especially for organizations with large facilities or multiple buildings.
Your IT network is a key element that supports multiple processes. Not all network issues are critical, but they can hurt your productivity.
LogMate can improve visibility over your network infrastructure by collecting data from various network devices. You can monitor traffic levels, bandwidth utilization, device connection status and more. This approach can help you find issues before they spread. It can also help you detect data breaches and security problems before they trigger a critical alarm.
Remote work is becoming more common. It means your network is more important than ever. For many businesses, it results in unplanned outages that drive up costs. LogMate can help prevent downtime by monitoring key infrastructure devices.
Server event logs
Your server event logs are a valuable resource for monitoring server activity and performance. However, going over these logs can be time-consuming. With LogMate in place, users can see entries that stand out. These events can indicate a Windows process not responding or note an unusual login.
In 2020, it took an average of 280 days to identify and respond to security breaches. Improving visibility over server event logs reduces this timeframe. It will help you mitigate the consequences of a data breach faster.
Learn more about all of LogMate’s capabilities
LogMate changes and optimizes alarm management with the following features:
- Thanks to its advanced connectivity and integration capabilities, LogMate can capture event data from a wide range of sources, both critical and non-critical.
- With its web-based interface, LogMate makes alarm and event data easy to access and manage. Features like custom reporting allow users to focus on data relevant to their job.
- Real-time event notification is included to alert users to any event or combination of multiple events. For example, notify LogMate users when two separate events occur within two minutes of each other. It can also notify users when two events are expected but the second event doesn’t take place.
Our goal is to help you get the most out of these tools and other LogMate features. Contact us to learn more about how you can use your existing LogMate infrastructure to improve visibility over non-critical processes!
