Ability to password protect the configuration so others don't purposefully or accidentally change your customer's configurations (available under Settings in the Console application)
Optional renewing licenses which will periodically contact your webserver to determine whether the client is still under contract to you and should continue to be monitored (Contact us for details)
Template support which lets you get a standard configuration setup, and then quickly apply it to new installations
To brand PA Server Monitor you need to download the oemconfig.ini file. You'll see that it is a small text file that contains things like
product name, company name and website, contact email address, etc.
Edit the file to your liking.
Near the bottom of the file is a place where you can specify the name of a Windows Bitmap (.bmp) file for use in the PA Server Monitor Console -- the branding bitmap at the top.
Copy oemconfig.ini and your branding bitmap into the PA Server Monitor product directory. This is typically C:\Program Files\PA Server Monitor
Now restart the PA Server Monitor service and the Console -- your brand is now being used!
A couple of caveats:
Branding only works with a Lite, Pro and Ultra license (including the Lite, Pro and Ultra demo licenses). The Free edition is not brandable. If a demo license expires, the product will revert back to the Free edition, and
revert to our branding.
If you want to the rename the PA Server Monitor service (so it shows up with your name in the Administrator Tools -> Services applet for example), run the following after placing the oemconfig.ini file:
(That will cause the service to be re-installed with your branding)

“We are finished testing [PA Server Monitor] and are very pleased with every aspect of it ... [I like] routines for setup (could not be easier), pricing - compared to other products this is a bargain, interface, stability, reporting, and remote monitoring. The first week of use the program generated around a $1000 extra for us.”
