GFI Network Server Monitor Keeps Servers up and Running With GFI's New Product, Staying on Top of Servers and Network Is Child's Play

    London (ots) -

    Easy To Use and Inexpensive, Puts Professional Network Management
    Within Reach of Every Business
    GFI today introduced GFI Network Server Monitor, a tool that
automatically monitors the network and servers for failures, and
allows administrators to identify and fix issues before users report
them. Alerts can be sent by email, pager or SMS. Actions, such as
rebooting a machine, restarting a service or running a script, can be
done automatically. GFI Network Server Monitor is easy to set up and
use, and is competitively priced.
    Easier to use than traditional network monitoring products
    Although there are several network monitoring tools on the market,
GFI Network Server Monitor stands out because of its ease of use; its
intuitive rules interface makes monitoring a network child's play.
With GFI Network Server Monitor, administrators can monitor their
network within an hour of installing it. By comparison, conventional
network monitoring programs are complex to install and have a steep
learning curve.
    Competitively priced
    A further difference in other network monitoring/management
products is that they are traditionally rather expensive. For
example, Microsoft Operations Manager costs US$395 per monitored
processor. By contrast, GFI Network Server Monitor costs US$695 for
unlimited monitoring of all workstations and servers (independent of
the number of processors) in a network; a five-server monitoring
license costs US$375.
    Automatically sends alerts via email/pager/SMS and takes
corrective action
    When it detects a failure, GFI Network Server Monitor can send
alerts via SMS, pager, email or a network message. After an
unexpected condition has occurred, GFI Network Server Monitor can
automatically correct the problem by restarting a service (or
multiple services) upon failure; rebooting a server; or launching an
executable, batch job or VBScript.
    Includes out-of-the-box checks to monitor all aspects of a network
    GFI Network Server Monitor includes checks for:
    --  Exchange Server 2000/2003 - Checks the status of an Exchange
Server by monitoring critical Exchange services and performance
counters (Information Store, mailboxes, SMTP service, etc)    
    --  All popular database servers (SQL/ORACLE/ODBC) - Natively
checks the availability of all leading database applications,
including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and others via OBDC    
    --  HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, IMAP servers - Checks for availability
and ensures that the servers are responding correctly    
    --  Windows servers and workstations, UNIX/Linux and Novell -

    --  Processes, services and CPU usage - Enables the checking of
critical processes, services and CPU usage on local and remote    
    --  Users, groups and other Active Directory information -      
Monitors Active Directory information such as group membership      of
the domain admins group, and the addition of new members;      also
checks user accounts (locked out, disabled, etc), computer      
accounts and so on    
    --  Remote event logs - Scans Windows event logs on local or
remote computers and looks for specific event sources, categories and
IDs, as well as for patterns in the event description    
    --  SNMP devices - Monitors all devices that support SNMP, such as
routers, switches and wireless access points    
    --  Disk and file - Performs directory size and disk space      
monitoring, checks physical hard disk status and authenticates    
file size and file existence.    
    Custom monitor functions using VBscript and RSH
    Although GFI Network Server Monitor includes an extensive set of
default monitoring functions, custom checks can be added by writing a
VBscript (Windows) or a RSH shell script (UNIX). From VBscript, WMI
and ADSI functions can be used. WMI is an interface to a broad range
of hardware/software/OS-related properties of a computer, allowing
users to perform almost any check. ADSI is an interface to Active
Directory. The GFI Network Server Monitor website lists a number of
sample scripts, and others are continuously added to the site (more
information is available at
