Operating System Patch Management
Each of the End User Workstations you select for monitoring will be managed for applicable operating system patches. This will help keep the workstation secure and up to date and operating with minimum downtime.

End User Workstation Monitoring and Alerting
Specialized software will monitor the computing equipment selected to detect abnormal physical conditions. Alerts will be sent via email messages to Dymaxion. Monitoring and Alerting does not eliminate errors and failures but enables a proactive approach to maintain uptime.

End User Workstation Error & Event Log Monitoring
The Windows End User Workstation Operating Systems maintain a log of unusual situations and events. Automated monitoring of the error and event log supplements scheduled manual viewing and is helpful in maintaining the overall health of workstation equipment.

By setting suggested guidelines, Dymaxion will be aware when disk storage capacity approaches a level when proactive action is required. When an alert is received, either additional storage capacity can be added or information removed from your End User Workstation.
