Server problems are just plain crippling. Your business server handles a lot of crucial data for your organization. Over the years, it can be overloaded with data and may become slow. A slow server can negatively affect the growth of your business. You need to recognize the aging signs of your server and take corrective measures in time.

We’ll show you how we can help you identify the signs of server problems through this blog.

Let’s begin.

1. Your Server Fails Constantly & Makes a Lot of Noise

Any server can go on working efficiently for three to five years at a stretch. Sometimes, it goes down with excess loads. But, with some maintenance work, it will be back in good working condition.

But, if you see unusual events like sudden shutdown or creaking noises, it is a cause for concern. You might have to migrate your data to another server. To do that, you need to verify few important aspects like:

  • Go through the event logs to identify a problem.
  • See if your motherboard components are in good working condition.
  • Scan through your server’s disk for errors.
  • See if your server is infected with malware.
  • Ascertain the intensity of the server loads.

2. Your Server Frequently Heats Up

Server heat up is a common problem these days. When they emit a lot of heat, their functioning efficiency decreases. So when you spot a server heat up, make sure that you inspect the critical components of your server.

For example, check out for faulty fans, air blockage, clogged front intake, server functioning beyond the recommended temperature, and more. Make sure that you bring these problems before your service provider and take action as soon as possible.

3. Your Server Has Slowed Down Considerably

When one computer slows down, the productivity of an individual is affected. But, if an entire server slows down, the productivity of the workforce slows down, thereby stalling the progress of your entire organization. Slow servers usually come with poor data transfer capability. Hence, as computer technicians, you need to act on slowing servers to prevent long-term bottlenecks swiftly.

We, here at MyTek, ensure that your servers are constantly monitored and recharged. Our real-time remote monitoring capabilities allow us to scan your server speed and alert you in case of data lapses.
