|Administering the Platform|
Set up your monitoring systems so that you're alerted before things go wrong.
Jive Software strongly recommends that system administrators set up monitoring systems for Jive platforms that are deployed on-premise. (Monitoring for hosted customers is performed automatically by Jive Software).
Monitoring the health of the nodes in your Jive deployment and setting up system alerts can help you avoid costly community downtime, and can also be helpful for correctly sizing the hardware of your deployment. To understand how to properly size your community, be sure to read Deployment Sizing and Capacity Planning.
