Prevent replication issues
A failure on a replication link, issues with the domain controller, or slow replication rates can all cause performance issues.
Facilitate user authentication
Authentication issues are common where a domain controller will facilitate users when they attempt to log in to a domain.
Lack of visibility into LDAP queries
When end-users are unable to connect to a session using LDAP queries, chances are there is an issue with the domain controller.
Get proactive notification of service outages or performance issues with your domain controllers
• Visibility into domain controller performance
Monitor various aspects of your domain controller, and improve app health and end-user performance.
• Monitor for user authentication issues
See performance details of user accounts, user activities, and domain-related performance counters.
• Manage directory service files
See the availability of NTDS files to ensure they do not run out of disk space, affecting domain controllers.
• View across the IT layers to troubleshoot app issues
Using a single dashboard, see app issues due to database, servers, virtual, and storage layers.


Visibility into domain controller performance
Replication is an important process for keeping your domain controllers healthy and up to date. Consider monitoring replication to see if there is a failure on a replication link, a domain controller issue, or network issues leading to slow replication rates between sites and apps. Closely watch key metrics, such as replication syncs, and updates.
•=
• User account creation, deletion, and disablement
• Attempts to change or reset passwords
• Changes to the user account, user account lockouts, etc
Manage directory service files
Monitoring New Technology Directory Services (NTDS) object counter will indicate the number of clients connected to an LDAP session. When end-users are unable to connect to a session using LDAP queries, there could be an issue with the domain controller. You will need visibility of performance data such as speed and response times of particular sessions.
• View across the IT layers to troubleshoot app issues
Understand relationships and dependencies of the application management stack. With the application stack dashboard, start automatically mapping relationships between the application and its underlying infrastructure, such as database, servers, virtual, and storage layers to identify the root cause of application issues.
