Argent Guardian Ultra
Argent Guardian Ultra is the world's most scalable monitoring solution for all Windows, Linux, UNIX (AIX, HP-UX, SCO, Solaris), and iSeries Servers. Using a patented agent-optional architecture, Argent Guardian Ultra monitors servers with or without installing agents, providing the power and flexibility to define the monitoring architecture to match customers' exact needs.

Argent Guardian Ultra monitors the health and performance of servers and when issues arise, alerts are executed via the Argent Console. The Argent Console can be viewed using both a traditional GUI interface, as well as a web-based interface. Over a dozen different types of alerts can be executed using the Argent Console, such as alphanumeric paging, email, and SMS. Argent also can take corrective measures, such as restarting stopped or stalled services and even rebooting servers. As a result, IT personnel are notified and issues are addressed automatically before end users even know problems exist. Argent makes SLA commitments easy to meet.

Find out why more than 2,000 organizations worldwide rely on Argent to enhance the reliability and performance of their enterprise.

Agent-Optional Architecture

Using a unique and patented agent-optional architecture, the Argent Guardian Ultra is the leading solution for monitoring all aspects of the enterprise from a central console. The Argent Guardian Ultra supports all Windows, Linux, Unix and iSeries systems. The product is delivered with powerful, pre-defined Rule Sets containing over 10,000 Rules and pre-defined reports enabling customers to immediately maximize the reliability of production servers and applications through the automatic detection and correction of problems and issues. For example, Service Level Agreement reports can be generated each day and then automatically emailed to management.

Lower Support Costs And Increased Reliability

The Argent Guardian Ultra decreases the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) while, at the same time increasing the reliability of production servers, all from a central console that can be viewed using both a traditional GUI interface, as well as a web-based interface. Over 10,000 pre-defined Rules enable customers to effectively and comprehensively monitor all production servers within two hours of installation.

Flexible Architecture: Scales To Meet Requirements

Only the Argent Guardian Ultra supports a number of different monitoring architectures. Install the Argent Guardian Ultra on a single server and, in a matter of minutes, monitor all the servers in the enterprise. For larger organizations, install Regional Agents for greater flexibility. For customers with unique needs, the Argent Guardian Ultra supports both remote (agentless) and agent-based monitoring in the same domain. As a result, whether there are 10 servers or 10,000 servers, the Argent Guardian Ultra is the ideal solution.

Argent is the choice of four of the five largest law firms on the world.

Unique n-Tier Architecture

No other product has the Argent Guardian Ultra's true n-tier architecture. Monitoring Groups and SuperConsoles can easily be created to group servers along business lines, geographic location, or server type; the possibilities are unlimited.

Only the Argent Console enables customers to view all outstanding alerts from all Monitoring Groups worldwide on a central console as well as issue alerts when problems arise. For example, servers can be grouped by type - all SQL Servers in one monitoring environment, all Exchange Servers in another, all IIS Servers in another, and so on and yet still view them all on the same console.

A Total Solution

The Argent Guardian Ultra is a complete and integrated solution. Unlike other vendors who sell separate consoles and GUIs, the Argent Guardian Ultra provides everything needed to completely monitor the enterprise at one cost-effective price. The Argent Guardian Ultra integrates with help desk solutions such as Remedy, as well as all common hardware monitors, such as Dell OpenManage and IBM Director.
