Monitoring and alerts in IT infrastructures refer to the practice of actively monitoring various components of an IT system or infrastructure to detect and respond to any issues or incidents. This typically involves using tools and technologies to continuously monitor critical components such as servers, applications, databases, networks, and storage devices, and generate alerts.
The alerts generated by the monitoring system can be used to quickly identify and diagnose any problems, and take appropriate action to resolve them before they impact the end-users or customers. This is critical for maintaining the health and availability of Telecom Infrastructures, IT systems, and services, and ensuring that they meet the performance and reliability expectations of the business.
