SURFopzichter

ICT administrators use SURFopzichter (‘SURF Supervisor’) to monitor – online and in real time – the performance and availability of Internet services, for example websites and e-mail facilities.

Monitor internet services real-time

The SURFopzichter online application allows ICT administrators at connected institutions to monitor Internet services in real time for such things as availability and performance. They can do so both for services that the institution provides itself and for those that it procures from other providers. These services include websites, e-mail facilities, web applications, and routers.

Checks

Checks can be set to warn you if the system is not functioning properly, and the application provides reporting functionality for availability and performance. You can have checks carried out on various types of networks and systems, for example HTTP, FTP, TCP, or ICMP. A check monitors the specified system at set intervals.

For each check you can have notifications sent via e-mail or text message (SMS), for example if a check shows the result 'Critical' or if the system has begun working correctly again.

Reports

SURFopzichter provides extensive reports for availability and performance.

Based on NAGIOS

SURFopzichter is based on NAGIOS, an open source monitoring application. The most frequently used functions of NAGIOS have been incorporated into the SURFopzichter interface. In NAGIOS, setting checks has to be done manually but in SURFopzichter it has been largely automated.

Who is SURFopzichter for?

SURFopzichter is available to institutions connected to SURFnet. The institution's contact person can request SURFopzichter online via SURFdashboard (dutch site).

Rate 2015

SURFopzichter costs EUR 100 per month (excluding VAT).
