Product Architecture and Layout

Typical Installation (Main Install)

Every installation has a central monitoring service installed on a Windows Server or Workstation. This monitoring service can monitor computers and devices (including itself) on the local network.

Typical Installation

The first installation will also include a Console GUI application for working with and configuring the central monitoring service.

Remote Capabilities

In addition to monitoring servers and devices on the local network, Ultra editions of PA Server Monitor can also monitor remote servers and devices corporate firewalls, and across the Internet without needing a VPN. This is accomplished by installing a Satellite Monitoring Service on a single server or workstation at the remote site. The Satellite will then monitor itself (the computer it is installed on) and/or other servers and devices on the local network at the remote site. Alerts and monitoring data will be sent back to the Central Monitoring Service via SSL-encrypted HTTP.
