How we help you

Hanover Technology Monitoring ConsoleThe Technology Department continues to improve it's monitoring of the various components that make up our network infrastructure.  Using a Rasberry Pi device as well as freeware and existing management tools we have setup a monitoring console in our office to visually alert us if something is not working as expected.  We are monitoring thousands of data points across over 100 internal devices as well as monitoring external services such as Google and other external web services critical to our operations.  In addition to this visual monitor, we have automated alerts for critical systems and functions so the technology team is alerted 24/7/365, if a critical system goes offline.  On an almost weekly basis, we identify a dozen new data points to monitor and add those to our systems.  This ensures that we can address issues as they arise and minimize disruption to our community, staff, and students, both in the schools and town offices.
