Linux Bandwidth Event Monitor

Connects to a remote SSH server and monitors the bandwidth used by the server/workstation. This event monitor takes two traffic samples for a remote machine and then calculates the bandwidth used for the time period between the samples. It can detect incoming, outgoing and total bandwidth and offers options to warn if any exceed specified values. It collects graph data for the incoming, outgoing and total bandwidth rates.

Linux Command Event Monitor

Connects to a remote SSH server and runs a script to check on events custom to your environment. Includes options to parse the results and generate alerts based on the data returned.

Linux CPU Event Monitor

Monitors the CPU usage on servers, workstations over SSH. This event monitor takes one or more samples of CPU usage and warns if the average or maximum value exceeds specified thresholds. It can also focus on specific processes to warn if they are using too much CPU or memory. Include an option to list of the top processes by CPU usage in every notification.

Linux File Event Monitor

Monitors individual files warns about their size, contents and other properties over SSH. This event monitor can monitor a file’s size and warn if it is smaller or larger than a specified size. It can also check the last modified date of a file and even scan its contents looking for specific text.

Linux Process Event Monitor

Monitors processes for CPU and memory usage over SSH. This event monitor watches the processes running on remote machines. It can be set to check overall CPU and memory usage or to focus on a specific processes to make sure they are running and aren’t using too much CPU time or memory.

Low-Level Event Monitors

Ping Event Monitor

Uses standard ICMP Pings to check the availability of servers. Pings the selected devices multiple times and warns if they are unreachable or if the maximum or average response times exceed the thresholds that you choose. Graphs show the average and maximum response times, allowing you to detect both long term and short-term trends. An option is included to add a traceroute to the device whenever a failure is detected.

TCP Port Event Monitor

Checks to see if specified TCP/IP ports are open. This event monitor lets you specify one or more TCP/IP ports that will be checked. Options are included to warn if they are open or if they are closed. It provides a great way to check that specified IP-based services are either available or not available on remote machines.

Traceroute Event Monitor

Uses standard ICMP Pings to check the traceroute of servers. Options to warn about average & maximum hop times and to warn if the route changes. Also includes options to control the number of ping tests and default timeouts.

Disk & File Event Monitors

Directory Event Monitor

Monitors a specified directory on a remote machine. This event monitor can warn based on the number of files present, the total number of files and the total size of all files. It can also optionally check for the presence of the directory. Lastly, it can monitor the size of the files that are present and warn if the total amount of space used changes by more than a specified amount.

Drive Space Event Monitor

Checks the attributes of specified disk drive(s) on remote machines. This event monitor can check multiple drives on multiple remote machines all using one group of settings. It can warn if the amount of free space drops below a certain fixed size or if the amount of available space is less than a specified percentage. It also watches for changes in the amount of space used. For example, you can receive a notification if the amount of available space changes by more than a certain size or percentage. It’s a great way to get notified when someone dumps a large number of files on a server.

File Event Monitor

Monitors individual files warns about their size, contents and other properties. This event monitor can a file’s size and warn if it is smaller or larger than a specified size. It can also check the last modified date of a file and even scan its contents looking for specific text.

File Bandwidth Event Monitor

This event monitor downloads one or more files from a network drive(s) and measures the observed bandwidth based on the transfer time. It’s a great tool for verifying available bandwidth across network links. Since text-based files may be compressed on-the-fly by network hardware, we recommend using fully compressed test files (such as .zip files) for the URLs.

Shared Folders Event Monitor
