Detecta offers a wide range of features that support a DBA/ system administrator to manage their SQL Server, Linux server, Windows server and Windows desktop environments
Cloud Based Architecture
Detecta is a private cloud based monitoring solution. Once installed, light weight monitoring agents communicate with our Detecta API via a secure https connection, passing relevant data to the Detecta repository. Users are then able to access the Detecta dashboard via a secure portal from anywhere anytime.
Key benefits with this approach are:
No Infrastructure requirements to run Detecta – Scalable solution we add resources as required to ensure the performance of your environment
The Koda team are able to support clients faster with more regular releases of both enhancements and issue resolution
Detecta supports connections via proxy. In environments secured from the internet, the tool allows configuration via a proxy within the target DMZ
Detecta offers a web based dashboard for clients to manage all environment settings as well as access the Detecta dashboard.
- Available from anywhere
- Summary dashboard providing oversight of all environments
All pages within Detecta that display are able to be customised, a user can select the columns that they want to view, on delivery not all data is displayed for a particular screen, simply click the Show/Hide tab at the top of the page and select the attributes you want to display
The attribute selection is retained and will be available the next time you login to the screen
Detecta supports any number of users, access can be configured by the admin account (the one provided on registration)
There are three levels of user role available
- Read Only
Detecta offers a unique, simple mechanism for creating multiple different levels of support within the environment. Tags associate objects within the environment, once linked by a common tag objects are able to be controlled.
Objects able to be tagged include:
You are able to generate as many tags as you wish, typical use includes establishing a "Production" tag, associating a group of servers with this tag, associated rules and a support user ensures when an alert is raised on a tagged production environment, only the associated user(s) are notified.
The architecture of Detecta's SQL Server Monitoring tool allows providers of outsource database support services (MSP's) to provide a client specific dashboard for their own clients to access while utilising their full consolidated dashboard to care for all environments under their watch.
The tiered access provided by Detecta allows licenses to me managed at the MSP level while allowing an organisation to provide access to the dashboard to their clients
To configure tiered access please contact the Detecta team and they can arrange to have it configured
Detecta continue to add new counters to the monitoring tool, a current list of captured data is available here
Unique Alert and notification engine allows customised alerts to be created for all counters.
Provides the ability to define number of notifications triggered by an alert
Define users who should receive each alert notification
Ability to create groups of users and associate 1 or many environments with the group
Define whether alert should be raised immediately or delayed
Auto close alerts if event triggering notification returns below threshold or alert is superseded by a higher severity threshold breach
Detecta allows you to configure any number of custom notifications. These can be raised via email or via the Detecta mobile application.
A user has the ability to configure the number of alerts to be raised, the frequency and any delay that they would like to introduce before an alert is raised
Preserving the confidentiality and integrity of your information is one of Detecta’s highest priorities.
Detecta maintains a deep culture of security and utilises an iterative approach in designing and improving security procedures and controls.
This document summarizes the key measures we take in ensuring your data is always protected.
