The Mender Monitor add-on gives you instant visibility into issues within your device fleet. In addition, it allows you to customize the conditions to detect when certain parts of your infrastructure malfunction or need your attention.

To conserve bandwidth and facilitate edge processing, Mender Monitor optimizes data transmission by only sending data when specific conditions are met, ensuring efficient data utilization. Compared to classic approaches of sending all the data about all the nodes to the server all the time, which leads to massive bandwidth savings and allows instant local processing.
