Today, the massive use of technology in large-scale ventures is very popular for businesses. Monitoring systems are responsible for monitoring a company's equipment (hardware, networks, communications, operating systems, or applications), to monitor its operation and performance, and identify potential errors. A successful monitoring system is capable of monitoring devices, infrastructure, software, facilities, and even processes in industry.
