IT Systems Monitoring Checklist and Calculator

Who are these Checklists and Calculators for?

These IT systems monitoring and management evaluation tools are designed to help IT managers
and administrators as they search for the right ITSM, server monitoring, and unified IT dashboard solutions.
We noticed that many of our customers had to create similar checklists and calculators from scratch.
Rather than start from a blank sheet of paper, these tools can be a starting point for your systems monitoring
software evaluation. Update, expand and customize them depending on your exact requirements.
  • Review the Checklist and/or Calculator below.
  • Add in your IT systems management and server monitoring priorities/needs/requirements if not already included.
  • If you wish to include Uptime Infrastructure Monitor in your checklist, we can send you a pre-filled version.
