Your essential network monitoring, alerting and recovery Solution

1 2 3

monitor everything 24/7

Quality Assurance, Windows, Resource, SNMP and Uptime Monitors test availability, responsiveness and performance quality of critical applications, databases and infrastructure equipment such as:

• Windows® NT, 2000, XP, 2003

• Microsoft® Exchange, IIS, SQL, Site Server, Transaction Server

• RAS, WINS, DHCP • Oracle® SQL

• Dell® & Hewlett Packard® servers

• Cisco® routers

• Foundry Networks® switches

• APC® back-up power protection systems

• NetBotz® environmental monitors

• Memory, disk space, fan, CPU & battery • Inbound, outbound, & percentile bandwidth

recover Service automatically

Many Monitors, such as the Quality Assurance, Bandwidth, Disk Space, CPU, Memory, Battery, Event Log and SNMP Monitors, provide the information you need to take action before trouble happens and users are affected.

However, in the event that trouble is detected or a failure occurs, various Recovery mechanisms are able to automatically take corrective action:

• Restart failed applications • Restart Windows Services • Reboot machines • Start external applications • Run recovery scripts

alert when trouble occurs

Notification Alerts help you avoid costly downtime by immediately alerting the right people when:

• Quality of service degrades

• A predefined content pattern is identified • Thresholds are exceeded

• Failures occur Alert methods include:

• SMS modem • Digital phone • Email • Pager

report in real-time

ipMonitor’s reporting capabilities include both real-time status reports and configurable historical reports that take advantage of dynamic time-series data.

Live status reports: • Update in real-time

• Are ideal for Network Operations Centers Configurable reports:

• Display current up to the minute data

• Can be cropped and zoomed into based on visible data points • Expose operational parameters and error messages

Report configuration:

• Choose from various graphs, icons and tables • Add corporate logos

• Automatically send reports by email

Use the Add Server Wizard to query a server or device for possible Monitors that can be added. Navigate the list of resources to quickly select individual Monitors or Groups of Monitors to test. Add the New Monitors to your ipMonitor installation.

ipmonitor –

when uptime is Critical

Can You afford downtime?

Downtime, inaccessible resources and interrupted communications equal lost sales, lost customers and lost productivity. Something no organization can afford and what every IT department works hard to avoid.

Like thousands of other IT professionals, administrators and webmasters, you to can use ipMonitor as your first line of defense against costly downtime. Advanced monitoring features, reliability and ease of use make ipMonitor ideal for testing availability of network resources, resolving outages, pinpointing performance degradations and fixing them before they affect your users.

why You Should Care about Security

Network monitoring and management solutions access and often control critical resources. If an unauthorized person were to commandeer your network monitoring solution, critical assets could be severely compromised.

To minimize these security concerns, ipMonitor includes support for SSL and provides a credentials management system, as well as strong internal encryption, IP Address Filters, detailed User Account settings and various authentication methods for Monitors.

why You need Quality assurance monitoring

Without Quality Assurance Monitoring to diagnose the application itself, measuring the quality of service experienced by end-users would not be possible. For example, the SQL database a Web application relies on is Up but doesn’t return records because access permissions were changed, so rather than displaying content, the Web Application returns an error

To ensure such scenarios do not go undetected, ipMonitor provides a suite of Quality Assurance Monitors that perform synthetic transactions and analyze test results to measure the quality of service end-users experience.

NOC VIEW – Monitoring performance of applications and infrastructure equipment in real-time greatly reduces the time required to identify, locate and troubleshoot network problems.

REPORTING – Comprehensive reporting, includes ability to zoom in to expose operational parameters and error messages.

ipMonitor – “ipMonitor contains a wealth of features

and can closely monitor virtually every networking

device, server or activity.”



Agentless Architecture makes ipMonitor fast to install and quick to deploy. Configuration is easy with features like the Network Scan and Add Server Wizard to help you locate resources to monitor.

web-Based admin

ipMonitor’s web-based interface lets you securely perform adminis-trative tasks such as, manage accounts, set-up credentials, restart Services & servers, and configure Monitors, from anywhere on your network, at home or on the road.

Quality assurance monitoring

Quality Assurance Monitors perform synthetic transactions and analyze results to measure quality of service from the end-user perspective for critical services such as SQL, Mail, Commerce, Web servers and applications.

SnmP monitoring

Built in SNMP tools and Wizards make it easy to locate and set up Monitors for SNMP-enabled hardware and infrastructure equipment such as routers, switches, servers, etc.

windows monitoring

Monitors and configuration Wizards make it easy to test the functionality of SQL, Exchange, Event Logs, Services, Active Directory, Kerberos and key aspects of Microsoft® Windows® NT/2000/XP/2003 operating systems.

Zoomable reports

ipMonitor’s efficient database system retains all Monitor test results for up-to-the-minute and historical reports alike, making it possible to zoom into reports based on visible data points to expose operational parameters and error messages.

SoaP integration

ipMonitor’s industry standard SOAP interface provides secure programmatic access to run-time data and configuration interfaces.

easy on your Budget

You save money because no extra agents, add-ons, plug-ins or databases are required. In addition, ipMonitor comes with 1 year of support, updates and upgrades at no extra cost.
