About the Monitoring Agents
About the Monitoring Agents

Obkio’s Public Monitoring Agents are one of four Monitoring Agent types offered by Obkio’s Network Monitoring software to help users continuously monitor network performance in different network locations.

This Monitoring Agent type is hosted and maintained by Obkio but operated by third party service providers, including the largest cloud providers in the world like AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure.

Since they are already installed, they can be deployed in seconds and are therefore the easiest Monitoring Agent type to use! They monitor network performance between users’ standard Monitoring Agents, located in a company’s headquarters, remote offices, home offices, data centers, etc., and Monitoring Agents located within a MSP’s, service provider, or Cloud provider infrastructure.
