Node Monitor, is a Service Module and a member of the
NotificationWorks. Node Monitor
monitors the status of IP devices and Ports/Sockets. You can set thresholds that
trigger alarms for network latency (how busy), amount of time down, amount of no
responses, web pages, etc.
Since it is possible for an application or
service to be down while its operation system is still responding to a ping
request, it makes it very important to be able to also monitor those services.
You can do this by using the Node Monitor's Ports/Sockets monitoring feature.
Ports/Sockets monitoring provides the ability to monitor any application that
uses ports for communication. i.e. email services, web services etc.. You can
even use Node Monitor to alert you if someone hacks into your website and
changes your web pages.
The Port/Socket monitor feature is very powerful. It provides
the ability to create your own port monitoring behavior. For example, by using
the configurable port/socket features you can create a port profile that will
monitor a website and alert you when ever a web page changes, missing files, web
not responding, etc..
Monitors the running status of any device that supports the UDP
- Settable Ping Alarm
Threshold alarms are; latency, down time, no response
- Port/Socket Monitoring
Monitors the running status of ANY port/socket. You can define your own
port monitoring behavior, you can configure what data to send and what data you
- Settable Ping and Port Retry
how many times to retry before reporting an error on a ping or a port
- Configurable Latency
Threshold Alarm Settings per Device
Both ping and port monitoring have Latency
Threshold alarm settings per device
- Available Alarms
Ping, device not responding
latency threshold exceeded
Ping, down time threshold exceeded
response count threshold exceeded
Ping, device response resumed
Could not open port
Read error on port;
average latency threshold exceeded
- Adjustable screen
have 30 devices you are monitoring you can resize NodeMon to have 6 devices
across, 5 down or 1 across 30 down, etc. You decide how you want it to
can have 1 copy of Node Monitor monitoring a list of routers and have it titled
"Routers", and another copy monitoring a list of servers and title it "Servers."
This provides you with a way to organize your monitoring lists.
Each monitored device has its own polling
- Float Device
device gets an error it will move to the top of the list.
Listing files can be set to be automatically loaded when Node Monitor
- Adjustable Polling
Each node can be set to poll at different times.
- Quick Status
the mouse over a node, pops up a window showing the current
- Windows 95, 98 or
- At least one Application Module
- 800 x 600 minimum desktop size
per Console (Monitors an unlimited amount of devices)
