Monitoring the Windows Internet Name Service (WINS)

eG Enterprise offers a 100% web-based WINS monitoring model (see Figure 4) that closely observes the performance of the WINS server in relation to real-time changes in load.


Figure 4 : Layer model of a WINS server

Figure 4 comprises of a set of hierarchical layers, each of which is associated with one/more tests. The eG agent on the WINS server periodically executes these tests on the server, extracts performance data from the server, and instantly alerts administrators of an impending overload or a probable dip in the processing speed of the server.
