Obtaining real-time values of system parameters or events (processor load, server responsiveness, intrusion attempts, …), or getting alerted when certain events happen
Use this tag for questions related to programs that react to unusual events such as a crashed server, an interrupted network link, a high processor load, etc. Monitoring also encompasses recording parameter values whether they are exceptional or not (e.g. regular measures of server response times or processor load); see also logs.
For questions about monitors as in screen showing images, see monitors.
