JeromeEDGE monitoring tool provides access to useful monitoring metrics and monitor the network utilization, consumption of disk space, and CPU load. The tool supports various operating system like Mac OS, Solaris, Linux and many more.

As IT environments become larger and more complex, monitoring and alerting becomes a critical component of ensuring that your systems remain online and healthy. By collecting data about the state of your system you can be notified if a host goes down or get advance warning of an impending issue such as a disk running out of space.

Storing this data allows you to analyse it later to troubleshoot more complex or transient issues by correlating data from multiple sources to gather a clearer picture of how components of your environment are interacting.

JeromeEDGE Distributed Network Monitoring is a database platform to collect data from a vast range of device types using either an installed agent or, in the case of networking equipment, SNMP. Compared to other monitoring solutions, JeromeEDGE is generally simple to set up, comes with a good selection of pre-configured data collection and alerting templates and doesn’t require enterprise licensing to access the more advanced features.

Monitor any possible performance metrics

Network performance

  • Network bandwidth usage
  • Packet loss rate
  • Interface error rate
  • High CPU or memory utilization
  • Number of TCP connections is anomaly high for this day of the week
  • Aggregate throughput of core routers is low

Network health

  • Link is down
  • System status is in warning/critical state
  • Device temperature is too high / too low
  • Power supply is in critical state
  • Free disk space is low
  • Fan is in critical state
  • No SNMP data collection

Configuration changes

  • New device added or removed
  • Network module is added, removed or replaced
  • Firmware has been upgraded
  • Device serial number has changed
  • Interface has changed to lower speed or half-duplex mode

This is a list of network-related metrics and incidents, monitored by JeromeEDGE out of the box. You can extend or customize the scope of monitored objects by adding new items, writing custom data collection scripts, building custom templates, etc.

Key features and benefits

Various metric collection methods and protocols

  • Active / Passive modes
  • IPv6 support

Flexible and extendable data gathering

  • Calculated and aggregated metrics. For example: sum of traffic between two ports on a network switch.
  • Preprocess collected data. For example: use regexp to extract some specific metric from legacy device.


  • Autodetect network devices. For example: new switch added, replaced or removed.
  • Autodetect device configuration changes. For example: new network modules added, or replaced; firmware upgraded.


  • Start to monitor all metrics instantly by using out-of-the-box templates
  • Clone and mass-update thousands of similar network devices using device configuration templates

Flexible problem definition

  • Create complex logical expressions regarding monitored statistics of network devices
  • Avoid false positives by defining hysteresis

Proactive network monitoring

  • Predict network downtimes
  • Predict trends of bandwidth usage
  • Detect anomalies in network load

Problem dependencies

  • Define multi-level dependencies between related network nodes. Detect root cause failures.

Problem severity levels

  • Define trigger severity levels to help concentrate on most important problems in case of multiple network issues.

Flexible notifications

  • Multiple delivery methods: email, sms, jabber, custom scripts or messenger
  • Customize message content based on recipient and escalation history


  • Run remote scripts on monitored device. You can restart remote switch, or reset/reconfigure network interface.
  • Run remote commands even behind firewalls

Event correlation

  • Decrease notification noise with event correlation

Customized escalation scenarios

  • Build flexible escalation scenarios
  • Escalate to user groups

Integration with 3rd party software

  • Help desks, ticketing systems (2-way integration)
  • Configuration management systems
  • Messengers, mobile applications
  • Inventory systems

Task automation

  • Use API to automate configuration management
  • Build remediation scripts
  • Retrieve monitoring data
  • Generate custom reports

Unlimited scalability

  • Scale by offloading JeromeEDGE server using JeromeEDGE proxy
  • JeromeEDGE has no limits or hidden restrictions. Whatever the network size is.

Optimized for high performance

  • Code efficiency, loadable modules
  • Data caching

High Availability

  • Use JeromeEDGE proxy to collect monitoring data in case of network issues
  • Build redundant monitoring solution using JeromeEDGE components. See example.

Security and authentication

  • Encrypt all monitoring traffic between JeromeEDGE and your network devices
  • Use LDAP authentication and flexible user permissions.

Enable birds eye view on your entire network topology with real time statistics.

Quickly zero in on network issues that requires immediate attention without affecting network performance.
