Built-in tools + 17 satellite applications included into Enterprise package at no additional cost!
HostMonitor GUI offers some some built-in tools: Trace, Telnet, IP-Monitor, Network Discovery,
SysInfo and more.
In addition to HostMonitor (the core of the package) an Advanced Host Monitor package has the following auxiliary components:
Remote Control Console
RCC allows you to work with HostMonitor which is running on a remote system just like you work with HostMonitor when it is started on your local system.
Via RCC you will be able to modify alert profiles, reports, change any option, edit mail templates, create new or modify existing test items, etc.
What is important - several operators may start RCC on different systems and work with the same instance of HostMonitor at the same time.

Log Analyzer is a graphical tool that visualizes the log data. It parses the contents of a log file and presents the
data as a variety of charts representing different test statistics. Log Analyzer may analyze all types of log files:
HTML, Text, and DBF log files. In a second, administrator can get a snap shot of the host performance over a period
of days or even months.

Lets say you have installed HostMonitor on reliable server and setup thousand test items to monitor entire network (or several networks).
HostMonitor will inform you in case of any problem. Unless... unless something happens to system where HostMonitor is running.
WatchDog can be installed on another system and monitor HostMonitor. WatchDog can be used as interactive application that displays
statistics information and charts in real-time. On the other hand, you may start WatchDog as Win32 service, setup some actions and
leave it unattended.

RMA (Remote Monitoring Agent)
RMA is a small application that accepts control requests from HostMonitor. RMA can be installed on a remote systems
and runs there as an application or as a Win32 service. Being controlled by a HostMonitor RMA performs tests and
sends the results back to the HostMonitor.
Normally HostMonitor can monitor entire LAN without using agents; also single RMA allows to monitor many systems in the remote network.

RMA Manager utility is designed to control and manage the array of Remote Monitoring Agents. It allows you to change
settings for hundreds of agents installed on remote systems at one time and from one location. Both RMA Manager and
HostMonitor are using the same list of Remote Monitor Agents. Working with this list you may select group(s) of agents
and then perform the following actions for the whole group:

- get information about an agent: version, platform, list of tests supported by the agent, list of allowed tests, etc;
- change agent configuration: change TCP port, timeout, password; enable/disable tests, change different management parameters, etc;
- reload agent (restart application);
- force agent to reread settings from its ini file;
- terminate agent;
- and even upgrade agent's code remotely.
This application works like Telnet server and allows you to control HostMonitor remotely using any telnet client.
Telnet Service allows you to check brief or detailed status of any test and folder. Also you can disable and enable
tests, reset statistics, force tests to execution and even change some parameters of the tests. HM Telnet Service
allows you to start or stop monitoring process, enable or disable alerts, change global macro variables, etc.

This application works like an HTTP server and provides web interface for HostMonitor. It means you can install Web
Service on a local or remote system and check (and control) HostMonitor in real time using a web browser on any
computer that is connected to the Internet.
Web Service allows you to check brief or detailed status of any test and folder. Also you may disable or enable tests,
reset statistics and force tests to execution. You will be able to start and stop monitoring, enable and disable

Although Replicator is a very small application it serves to save you huge amounts of time. Those who have large
networks with hundreds of servers will appreciate the ability to replicate a test (i.e. reproduce and apply to...)
for an array of systems in almost an instant.

MIB Browser allows you to view the hierarchy of SNMP MIB variables in the form of a tree and provides you with
additional information about each node. With MIB Browser you can easily load (compile) standard and proprietary
MIB files, view and manipulate data that is available in an SNMP agent.

Explorer allows you to explore the full set of WMI management classes, objects and their properties; browse
through objects and settings on remote machines; execute any WQL query and view the result set.

Process Meter displays chart with information about all processes running on local or remote system.
Each process represented by a bar; red colored bar indicates process that uses resources over specified limit.

Disk Meter displays chart with information about all disk drives mounted on local or remote system.
DiskMeter can connect to remote system using WMI or SNMP protocol and retrieve data from various systems:

- NetApp NAS
IPMI Browser retrieves data from remote servers using IPMI protocol, shows charts with temperature sensors, voltage, current and
fans speed. Also you may check all available counters (e.g. disk status, memory errors) with details: value, lower and upper thresholds,
critical and non-repairable thresholds; export data into text file and more.

Also you can use IP-Tools.
IP-Tools is a popular and powerful network tool which provides 20 TCP/IP utilities (for computer diagnostics
that help to detect problems on LAN or WAN, detect trojans on your computer or for retrieving various information).
This is an indispensable set of tools for anyone who uses Internet and/or Intranet.
IP-Tools is a separate package, however an Enterprise license for Advanced HostMonitor includes a bonus license
