Ultra vs Lite

Ultra and Lite are both powerful, but they are different.

Both Ultra and Lite can:

  Ultra Lite
Monitor: File activities (reads, writes, creates, deletes, moves, renames)    
Alert: Real-time alerts via email, write to a log file, write to Event Log, play sound, call a URL, send Syslogs or SNMP Traps, etc.    
Information: Accessed file, user account, user IP address*, file operation, date and time    
* User IP address is available if the user is on Windows Vista or newer. Older versions of Windows did not support sending the IP address.

Only Ultra can:

  Ultra Lite
Database: Write file, user account, user IP address, file operation, date and time to an embedded SQLite or Microsoft SQL Server database    
Reports: Generate reports over a period of time using the above database (Lite users would need to write to a text log file and then manually search the log file)    
Central Management: Manage multiple PA File Sight installations from a single central console    
Advanced Alerts: Alert on advanced usage patterns (like someone reading 15 files within 1 minute -- probably a file copy operation)    
Block External Drives: Has the Drive Sight monitor which can prevent external drives (USB, etc) from attaching to a server    

For more detail about the differences, see the Feature Overview.

 
In the health care services in my region (Chaudière-Appalaches), PA Server Monitor is getting very attractive!! ... PA Server Monitor in Chaudère-Appalches is a real success!
