Automate common IT tasks with the Action Scheduler. It will run your defined Actions when you specify.
|Active Directory Login Monitor
Monitor login and other security-related activity in Active Directory, Domain servers, and even for local logins.
Monitor bandwidth, network error counts, broadcasts and other values from SNMP-based devices as well as from Windows Performance Counters.
|Calculated Status Monitor
This monitor lets you calculate its status by running a script on the statuses of other monitors.
|Citrix Presentation Server Monitor
Monitor and alert on Citrix XenApp (Presentation Server) client connect and login response times. Alert if too slow, and record times for historical charts.
The Database Monitor can watch that individual databases are up and running, keep an eye on the transaction log size, and alert if databases are added or deleted from a server.
|Directory Quota Monitor
The Directory Quota Monitor keeps track of directory sizes, and executes actions if the directory sizes are over the quota. End users (directory owners) can be notified via email with the Monitor-Directed E-mail action. Includes reports.
|Disk Space Monitor
Monitor the free disk space on server drives. You can set the warning threshold in absolute size, or percentage of disk space. Includes reports and auto-configuration.
Monitor the results of a DNS lookup, or a reverse DNS lookup. You can specify which DNS server the request should be sent to. If an unexpected result is returned, actions are fired.
|Dynamic Server List
Dynamic Server Lists are groups of serves that meet your criteria. Once the list is known, you can define Dynamic Groups based on the list, and use that group everywhere else groups are used.
Monitor email messages in a POP3 or IMAP4 mail box for messages that contain specific text. When a match is found, alerts are fired.
Connects to an Esensors EM01b Websensor on the LAN and monitors the current temperature, humidity and luminescence, and notifies you if the values go above thresholds that you set. Historical reports as well.
|Event Log Monitor
Checks any specified Windows Event Logs (Application, System, Security plus custom event logs) and executes actions you specify if a source you're interested in adds an event to the log.
|Event Validator Monitor
Verifies that specific events, such as backup succeeded or anti-virus pattern file updated events are in the event log. If they are missing, fire alerts.
Execute your custom written scripts written in the Visual Basic Scripting Edition language. You can use custom or 3rd party ActiveX controls. The script determines whether to trigger actions using your own logic.
|File Age Monitor
Monitor file ages and alert if the files become too old (good for watching server queues, spool directories, etc).
|File/Directory Size Monitor
Track the size of a directory or a set of specific files within a directory. Includes reports.
|File & Directory Monitor (CIFS Monitor)
This monitor is a host-based IDS (Intrusion Detection System) that will notify you when the date, size or even content of a file changes on local files, or files on any CIFS share. File creation and deletion is also monitored. A good tool to help with configuration management as well. Auto-configuration functionality is available.
|FTP Server Monitor
The FTP Server monitor can login to FTP servers (including SSL-enabled FTP servers) to make sure they are up and running.
Monitor the hardware status of ESX, Dell DRAC/iDRAC, HP iLO, IBM RAS and other IPMI-based devices.
Alerts on inventory data collected by the Inventory Collector monitor.
Collects inventory information (hardware information, pending Windows Update, anti-virus status, etc) from a variety of sources including WMI, SNMP and an optional System Details application.
|Log File Monitor
Periodically checks the content of one or more log files for target text. Target text and be a simple text phrase or a regular expression.
|Mail Server Monitor
Monitor your mail servers (POP3, IMAP & SMTP) and validate that they are running and accepting incoming connections.
The Network Scan monitor will periodically perform a ping scan of a specified IP address range looking for new devices that are not already being monitored. They can automatically get added to the system and configured for monitoring.
The entire breadth of the system Performance Counters can be monitored allowing you to set actionable thresholds on CPU usage, memory usage, NIC traffic, etc. Performance counter values are stored in a database so you can view historical counter reports and understand trends.
Tests a connection/device by periodically testing it with a ping. No response or too great a delay triggers actions. Ping response times are recorded in a database for reporting and graphing.
Runs an executable or external script launched via Windows, or via SSH, and parses the output to determine whether alerts should be fired. Plugins can also return values that are recorded to the database and can be charted.
Monitor that specified processes are running on Windows or Linux servers.
|Server Temperature Monitor
Using the free SpeedFan utility, the Server Temperature Monitor will watch the values from the various temperature probes on your server and notify you if they go above the thresholds you set.
Watches system services and runs customized actions (including restarting the service) if they are not running.
Connects to local or remote SNMP agents and queries SNMP object values. Custom MIBs are supported. The value is compared to a threshold that you set and actions are fired as specified. SNMP values are also recorded to a local database for reporting purposes. Supports SNMP v1, v2c and v3.
|SNMP Trap Monitor
Receives SNMP Traps and optionally filters on trap text before running attached actions.
Receives Syslog log events and optionally filters on incoming log text before running attached actions.
|TCP Port Monitor
Makes a TCP connection on a specified port. Optionally send command text and check response text. Timing data is recorded for reporting purposes.
|Web Page Monitor
Monitor one or many pages on a web site. Checks for positive cases (text that must be found), negative cases (alerts if error text found) and if the page has changed at all. Response times are checked and recorded, and reports can be generated to understand trends.
