To identify and react to issues in a proactive manner process all your servers will have a definitive remote checklist developed and implemented. Some of the items checked include the following
• Event logs • Security logs • Backups • Antivirus software • Disk space • Server health • Error reporting
Staff undertaking remote checks provide a checking function – if faults are identified they are booked as jobs and a technician tasked with rectification on an appropriate priority. Any jobs created from these checks will be conducted at our normal Job billing rates and deducted from your block time. Jobs considered important by your nominated site manager (one of our senior engineers) will be acted on immediately – less important tasks may be scheduled to be done together to economize on time and minimize impact on users.
The Service includes basic server function monitoring and an SMS advisory Service. The completed checklists and reports will be forwarded at regular intervals. Costs are subject to the site configuration and complexity and are based on the time taken to undertake the defined task.
