Value Proposition



Vigilance® Monitoring
Unattended, High end, Professional Server Health Monitoring

An inexpensive, managed monitoring service solution

Looking for an expert, professional, NOC Design Engineer to design and build your Network Operations Center initiative? - Click HERE!

Don't confuse this service with those ping/port check products selling on the Internet for around $100 per Month. This is a very high end, comprehensive, managed monitoring service using BMC Software Patrol agent and knowledge module technology. Our Computer Server Monitoring Service includes a total understanding of Operating system parameters, processes and log file entries. For a nominal additional cost, knowledge modules for most popular applications and databases can be added. This is the very same software that we use for our professionally staffed, proactive service availability monitoring Customers.

BMC Patrol has very powerful recovery action capabilities that can restart/restore failed services safely and automatically if desired.


What you'll get

Vigilance Monitoring will install, configure and baseline all required software including console servers, agents and knowledge modules. Warnings and alarms can be sent to pagers, e-mail addresses or to your own trouble ticket system. Alternately, we can provide a dedicated POP e-mail address and/or access to our fully featured trouble ticket system. Vigilance will manage your monitoring environment and will install patches, updates and so on as required. We will also modify alert threshhold settings at your request.



We are a BMC Software Service Provider Partner. We use or are licensed to use all of the PRODUCTS that BMC or their Partners provide.

You can find more details about Patrol and how we can deploy it to solve your business problems HERE.

And still more technical information about how Patrol can be deployed as a total monitoring solution can be found HERE.



$150 per month, per server (no, that's not a misprint!)
$250 setup fee per server
NOTE: Effective January 1, 2005, the setup fee will increase to $500 per server

Note: $250 per month/$250 setup for servers with greater than 2 CPUs

We invite you to shop this price. We are confident that you won't find anything even close to these capabilities at this price. And should you decide that you really need a monitoring solution that takes advantage of our professionally staffed NOC, it's a very easy upgrade!

We support all operating systems including UNIX, Linux, as400 and Microsoft. Knowledge modules for specific applications are available at an additional cost: Oracle, Informix, Exchange, Domino, Websphere, MQ, JDE, Peoplesoft, SAP, etc. We can also provide desktop monitoring support if desired.

BMC Patrol supports a wide variety of "plug in" products that can significantly increase the monitoring level of coverage which we can provide if desired. And if you need something that isn't currently available from our Vendors, we can probably custom design something for you at our development rate of $250 per hour.

$150 per month is too much? Then look into our hardware health monitoring service for $50 per month per server or $250 per month for an unlimited number of servers in the same data center. But, at only $150 per month, we feel that our service won't have to correct many problems in a year's time before it more than pays for itself!
