Server Management - ActivXperts Network Monitor

Server Management - ActivXperts Network Monitor

ActiveXperts Network Monitor is a network and server monitoring tool that allows administrators to monitor the network for failures and irregularities automatically. It can monitor all aspects of your LAN- and WAN servers, workstations and IP devices.

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. Effective networking monitoring will alert you the moment that a situation arises so that you can respond to it immediately and minimize down-time. While a networking monitoring system can provide information about problems, it can also provide information about improving the network. A good system will allow you to generate log files and performance charts that detail your system's capabilities and responses. With this data, you can tweak your settings to find the optimal set-up.

When a failure is detected, the network monitor tool will try to correct the problem. There's no agent software required on the servers being monitored; the monitoring service uses protocols and application layers of the Operating System to do its job.

For years, System Administrators, Network Operators and Helpdesk Employees have relied upon the power, flexibility and reliability of the ActiveXperts Network Monitor tool.
