    If you don’t have the staff to dedicate someone to monitoring, you might consider LogicMonitor as it automatically configures monitoring for you for physical and virtual servers, databases, switches, routers, firewalls, and storage. And when it sends you alerts, it gives you recommended steps to resolve the problem. One last important note (especially for environments with many virtual machines) is that it automatically detects device changes and automatically updates the configuration files, making sure your monitoring is up-to-date.
