Productivity and success depends on a reliable network. We can monitor and optimise your servers and network infrastructure. Our network monitoring service offers a transparent accountable means of better managing your network clearly and knowledgeably! Our actions are based on careful analysis of historical trend data and years of experience.

Businesses increasingly rely on their networks. As networks and computer technology become more integrated with business, system outages can seriously impact a businesses ability to operate efficiently or to operate at all.

Our proactive approach to maintain one of the most valuable components in every businesses infrastructure is to monitor. Monitoring of your network allows us to detect any potential system failures before they happen.

Continuous monitoring of your network enables us to discover problems long before they get serious and before they get out of hand. It also enables us to plan for any potential bottlenecks and strategic upgrades to keep things running smoothly.

Are you monitoring your network? Or are you assuming everything is going to be O. K.?

Do you have access to bandwidth and network usage data that will help improve the efficiency of your network?

Do you know understanding bandwidth and resource consumption is the key to better network management?

  • Our monitoring services can provide the means of avoiding bandwidth and server performance bottlenecks.
  • Our monitoring services allow you to plan upgrades of your infrastructure strategically, and deliver improved quality of service to all of your users.

The continuous monitoring of a server's/services response times, builds the historic data which can later be analysed for uptime/downtime and detailed trend analysis. Our monitoring services will not only check whether the server is actually responding at all but also offer means of testing the replies from the server for validity with username and password authentication, login responses etc.

Since each network device typically has several parameters and services that should be monitored, we can set up various monitors to monitor each and every aspect (e.g. CPU load, web server responsiveness, SMTP responsiveness, PING time, etc).

  • Groups of network resources (i.e., satellite offices, web farms),
  • Individual resources (i.e. a server, an ADSL Modem), and
  • Multiple services (i.e. HTTP, Ping, and DNS)
PING Sends standard PING to the server/device
PORT Checks whether the server accepts connection at the specified port number
HTTP Simple HTTP/HTTPS request
HTTP Advanced Advanced HTTP monitor (features content check, proxy, and authentication settings)
HTTP Transaction Checks several pages in sequence (e.g. shopping cart)
DNS Checks DNS server
SMTP Checks SMTP server with various protocol options
POP3 Checks POP3 server with various protocol options
FTP Checks FTP server with various protocol options
SNMP Supports SNMP Version 1, 2c and 3 to read SNMP values from a device or server (supports custom OID's)
SNMP Traffic Monitors bandwidth usage of servers, routers, switches etc. via SNMP (Version 1, 2c and 3)
FILE Monitors a file on a local disk drive or a network share. It checks if the file exists, the file size is in a given range or if the file has been changed
NT Service monitor Any NT service on the local machine or a computer in the network can be monitored for downtimes. Can optionally restart the service upon failure
DISKSPACE Monitors the free disk space of a local disk drive or a remote network share
SQL Native monitoring for MS SQL, Oracle SQL and MySQL servers

  • Remote Management via web browser, PocketPC, or Windows client
  • Notifies users about outages by email, ICQ, or pager/SMS, and more
  • Monitors network services with its comprehensive monitor type selection
  • Multiple location monitoring, using secure Remote Monitoring.
  • Increased profits
    • By avoiding losses caused by undetected system failures.
  • Improved user satisfaction
    • By providing more reliable systems.
  • Peace of mind
    • As long as you don't hear from the network monitor via email, sms, pager, etc. you know everything is running fine.
    • Daily and weekly reports are available.

  • Detailed up/downtime monitoring reports and graphs can be viewed online
  • Calculates uptime/downtime percentages as well as downtimes
  • Various reporting options enable the user to perform in-depth trend analysis
  • Report emails can be sent to user's mailbox (automatically daily, weekly, monthly, or on-demand)

For example, we can monitor and record a server for HTTP. If the service is unavailable, an alert will be emailed to the administrator or our control room, which allows us to then take immediate action.

Additionally alerts can be configured to send messages via SMS/Pager, network broadcast, or ICQ, play a sound file, request a HTTP URL, or execute an external program or batch file.

  • Notifications can be triggered by server uptime's, downtimes, changed web pages, or slow responses
  • Messages can be sent by email, network broadcast (net send), ICQ, via SMS and to pagers
  • Also, an external program, batch file or HTTP URL can be triggered or a sound file can be played
  • Notifications can be scheduled based on the time of day and the day of week.
