About GFI Network Server Monitor
GFI Network Server Monitor is a network monitor that enables administrators to scan the network for failures or irregularities automatically. With GFI Network Server Monitor, it is possible to identify issues and fix unexpected conditions before the users or managers report them. GFI Network Server Monitor maximizes network availability by monitoring all aspects of Windows and Linux servers, workstations and devices. When a failure is detected, GFI's network monitor can raise the alert by email, pager or SMS, as well as taking corrective action by, for example, rebooting the machine, restarting the service or running a script. GFI Network Server Monitor actually tests the status of a service, rather than deducing a service status from generated events as other products do, which is the only real way to ensure server uptime. GFI Network Server Monitor is easy to set up and use, and is competitively priced.
MSD2D is the online resource for the Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, .NET and Security communities and professionals. MSD2D offers tools that administrators and developers need on a daily basis such as sample code, administration tips, discussion rooms with mentors, and more. Further MSD2D operates a search engine to access all the information available on products and services for these platforms.
