Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to study and analyze the Server Management System (SMS) which is a significant and dominating factor in most modern networks and servers that are developed today. Modern day servers and the optimized utilities they offer may have major drawbacks, which can lead to network failure if left unmanaged. They require essential aspects like managing and monitoring. Apart from being able to fullfil high end services, maintenance is still a key. SMS is significant because modern day networks require constant supervision and monitoring. It can be very crucial to a small business or enterprise environment to monitor their servers on a regular basis ensuring that this communication loss does not occur. SMS monitor application servers alert a user for failing components and notify the respective administrator. Monitoring specification for user’s application servers are provided by the user. SMS pings the user’s server and also provides an interface for the user to check the status of servers, irrespective of whether they are active or not. While updating the status of individual application servers, if the SMS sees that the status is inactive, a component of the system will try to restart the server and generate another component to analyze and notify the user about the cause for the failure of the individual application server via mail or messages. In this case, SMS helps the user to monitor their application server and save communication loss by rebooting application servers. Available tools for monitoring application servers cannot be customized according to user requirement. For example, they are not able to check server the status every second, cannot reboot the server, and cannot optimize resources on the server. The SMS uses Event Based Architecture (EBA) which makes it optimized. Implementation of EBA provides customization in SMS. The SMS involves many components that constantly monitor the system. Each component plays a major role in the SMS architecture and provides a real-time monitoring solution for application servers.
