Monitoring your fleet of Embedded Linux systems or Internet of Things (IoT) devices is undoubtedly critical for your business. Yet, there are almost no ready-to-use tools that continuously monitor Embedded Linux and IoT devices. As you probably thinking right now, the monitoring topic addressed with plenty of solutions when looking at the Cloud/Servers domains, but when speaking of the Embedded Linux and IoT worlds, nothing pops up.
IoT and smart devices are physical devices that are super valuable for their owner. That owner may be a random consumer, or it can be the manufacturer himself. In both cases, if that product stops working for some reason, the damage often is enormous. Continuous Monitoring of multiple parameters of the entire fleet of IoT devices is a life-saving matter and will eventually prevent a highly costed recall that can be up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
What to monitor?
Multiple parameters must be monitored remotely to make you feel calm when your Linux product is out there working in the field:
How to monitor?
Remotely Monitoring all those parameters of an Embedded Linux or IoT product is not an easy matter. As easy as it sounds at the Cloud/Servers domains, things are getting difficult when speaking of IoT devices which are placed far away from you, connected to different networks, and may be deployed under tough environments. At Upswift, we’ve developed a Management Platform for Embedded Linux and IoT fleets of devices that has all those monitoring tools built-in and ready to use. Using Upswift.io platform, you can connect any Linux device in under 60 seconds, and right away, begin Monitoring dozens of parameters that will help you debug issues remotely and save your product from huge problems when it is deployed in the field. Upswift is free of charge for makers and offers an unlimited time trial to test the management platform for business needs.
