Server monitoring software.


ProtoMon is a network and server monitoring software that will automatically check your servers and computers at specified intervals. It will immediately notify you about any problems. So you will be able to take the actions to fix them, even before somebody noticed the failure.

Server downtime means lost revenue, unsatisfied customers and damaged reputation for any bussiness. You can't totally avoid downtimes, but you can definitely cut them to a minimum using our monitoring solution.

"We have tried about five or six different server monitoring tools with varied success. And we came to the conclusion, that only ProtoMon is completely fulfills our needs. We have been using it for about a year, and no doubt, we made the right choice."
David Morrison

The standard version of ProtoMon can monitor any number of computers and servers simultaneously. You don't have to pay additional money for the "extra slots". The product is available for download and provided as try-before-you-buy which means that you can freely download and install it on your computer for a 30-day trial evaluation period. There is also a freeware version (ProtoMon Lite), that allows you to use any number of the free website monitoring checks and one check of any other type.

The program supports a wide range of monitoring checks, including the ping monitoring, website monitoring, file server monitoring, email server monitoring, etc. Also ProtoMon can perform the system monitoring of any Windows computer. There are more than 30 parameters that can be monitored. Among them are the CPU and memory usage, files and processes information, registry values and much more.

Below are the short descriptions of the basic ProtoMon features. For more details please refer the corresponding topics of the online help.

   The Internet and network servers monitoring:
  • Website monitoring (HTTP, HTTPS). The program supports all types of queries, HTTP authentication, proxy servers with authorization, redirects, content checking, etc.

  • File server monitoring (FTP, FTPS, SFTP). The monitoring software can download a file from the file server and check its content using the boolean expressions filter.

  • Email server monitoring (SMTP, POP3, IMAP). ProtoMon supports the secure versions of all mail protocols. It can check the messages count and the folders list, and can send a test message on every monitor check.

  • Telnet monitor and SSH monitor. The software can execute a script on the remote computer, grab its output, and check it using the content filters with support of the boolean expressions.

  • Check the connection to any TCP server on any port.

   The remote computers system information monitoring:
This feature requires ProtoMonAgent to be installed on the remote computer. ProtoMonAgent is a tiny and FREE Windows service that allows ProtoMon to read the following information:
  • CPU. Number of processors; current load; average and maximum load since the last query.
  • Memory. Total and available amount of physical (RAM) and virtual (PageFile) memory.
  • Disks. Existence; type; GUID; total and free disk space.
  • Operation system. Version and build numbers; installed service pack.
  • Files. Size; creation date and time.
  • Processes. CPU and memory usage.
  • Registry keys values.
  • Services statuses.
Please see the ProtoMon online help for more information regarding this feature.

   Other monitors:
  • ProtoMon can launch any console application or batch script, grab its output, and check it using the powerful boolean expression filters.

   Alerts and notifications:
When a monitor check fails, ProtoMon can do the following actions:
  • Show a pop-up notification window.
  • Play a sound.
  • Send a notification e-mail message.
  • Launch any external application, file or URL.
ProtoMon can identify the Internet connection failures, thus you can:
  • Get separate statistics for the servers downtime and the Internet connection problems.
  • Specify, whether you wish to trigger the alerts when Internet connection fails, or not.
  • Force ProtoMon to re-check the monitors more frequently if the Internet is not available.

ProtoMon stores complete statistics for every monitor, thus you can:
  • Get your servers checking time, uptime, downtime, minimum and maximum response times, and other values for any period you wish.
  • See the graphics representation of statistics on the intuitive chart with the support of zooming and panning, and descriptive hints.
You can review the ProtoMon status and monitoring statistics remotely:
  • Enable the built-in web server to access ProtoMon from any computer using your favorite web browser.
  • You can configure ProtoMon to periodically save its interface as the static web pages to the specified folder. So you can use an external web server (Apache, IIS, or any other) to access this data.
