Networking monitoring is the process of checking the modalities, servers and workstations that comprise a PACS network. This examination allows a PACS administrator to maintain a robust PACS network and even to improve upon the PACS network. You never know when a power supply is going to burn out, when a server is going to crash, when network bandwidth drops or when your LAN is hacked. However, even through you do not know when these events will occur, you can be prepared for them. The PACS Health Monitor is an important assistant of PACS administrator. It will alert you the moment that a situation arises so that you can respond to it immediately and minimize down-time. While PACS Health Monitor can provide information about problems, it can also provide information about improving the network. The PACS Health Monitor will allow you to generate log files and performance charts that detail your system's capabilities and responses. The PACS Health Monitor is a lightweight software tool that monitoring the connectivity and performance of modalities, servers and workstations in the PACS network. The basic mechanism of The PACS Health Monitor is that it pings and DICOM verifies the DICOM hosts and applications over the PACS network periodically to measure, record and report the connectivity and performance. To use the PACS Health Monitor, you need not additional modification/configuration to the DICOM hosts and applications. You just run the PACS Health Monitor in a PC that belongs to the PACS network, and it will measure, record and report the connectivity and performance for you automatically.
