IoT device monitoring

Easily detect and analyze issues with devices, services and applications with Mender Monitor add-on package

A Monitoring solution built for IoT

Detect issues before your customers do

  • Monitor the health of your devices to ensure reliability for your end users
  • Highly configurable alerts, to detect:
    • Connectivity issues
    • Device malfunctions
    • Application, container or service interruptions
  • See device issues and logs in the Mender UI
  • Email notifications help you respond quickly before your customers' service is interrupted

End user monitoring

Real-time edge processing, designed for connected devices

  • Fully distributed solution utilizing edge processing on the device, designed for intermittent connectivity
  • Close to zero bandwidth:
    • Instead of each device sending all the metrics to the server all the time, only send relevant data when an alert is triggered
  • Reduced resolution time:
    • Instant local processing - quickly respond to environmental changes locally on the device

Traditional cloud monitoring services are not suitable for IoT devices

  • Different challenges for connected devices - IoT devices are geographically distributed and often have limited or unstable connectivity
  • Network and bandwidth costs high:
    • Traditional monitoring approaches require continuously sending all the metrics and data from all devices to the server
  • Longer cycle times to respond to issues:
    • You must wait for the device to alert the server before an issue can be resolved
