Active Directory Monitoring

Monitoring Active Directory (AD) helps in maintaining consistent directory data and also monitor critical parameters to stay ahead of potential bottlenecks through instant alerts. The Active Directory monitor uses the Site24x7 Windows agent for monitoring, i.e. they will be auto-discovered and added for monitoring once the Windows agent is successfully installed.  

Add an Active Directory Monitor

  1. Log in to Site24x7 and go to Server > Microsoft Active Directory (+).
  2. Click on Download Site24x7 Windows Server Agent. Copy-paste the device key, when prompted, in the installation wizard.

Once the Windows agent installation is complete, the agent will auto-discover and add the active directory for monitoring. Go to Server > Microsoft Active Directory to view their performance metrics.


  • Supports AD version 31 and above.
  • Supports Windows server 2008 and above.
  • Requires .NET version 3.0 and above.
  • This is an advanced monitor.

Tip: Bulk install the Windows agent in remote servers in one go using your Active Directory credentials. Learn more.
