PC Monitoring


EventSentry is an easy-to-use, flexible yet affordable real-time log, system and network monitoring and software/hardware inventory suite for servers and workstations. EventSentry monitors log files as well as the availability of all important system components, including their performance.

You can receive event log alerts through a variety of notifications (e.g. email, pager, etc.) and our filtering engine supports advanced features such as thresholds, day/time settings, summaries, timers and recurring schedules not found in other products. The unique real-time log monitoring component can normalize any OS or application – specific delimited log file type (e.g. IIS, DHCP, Firewall) for advanced searching and reporting.

EventSentry also helps companies meet the requirements of SOX, HIPAA, PCI and other regulatory requirements. With EventSentry you can consolidate events to a central database and create a variety of reports with the web-based reporting component. Unlike agentless solutions, EventSentry uses reliable agents which monitor your machines in real-time without any impact on performance or the network. Agents also ensure that your systems are monitored in real-time regardless of network connectivity.

Additionally, EventSentry also monitors services, disk space, performance, software/hardware, NTP and file checksums. EventSentry's compliance tracking feature normalizes Windows security events and provides insightful tracking information about Active Directory, application usage and logon activity. Network devices can be monitored through Syslog, SNMP and heartbeat checks. Environment sensors are also available and support monitoring temperature, humidity, water, smoke and motion.

EventSentry can be evaluated for 30 days; a free version is also available. Inquire for server and workstation pricing.

Distinct Network Monitor

Distinct Network Monitor translates complex protocol negotiation into natural language, pinpointing where errors occurred. Not only is it easier to use than any other competing products, but it also translates the packet negotiation into natural language, something no other network protocol analyzer does.

Distinct Network Monitor also captures several network traffic statistics for the network segment being monitored and provides a graphical representation of the statistics gathered. This feature may be used together with packet sniffing or on its own. When used on its own, the statistics can potentially span most of the network if Distinct Agents are installed on one system per subnet or switch.

Feature Summary: Captures network traffic and interprets it in plain English. Gives an intelligent interpretation of what actually happened on the network. Imports packet trace files taken with other networks analyzers and views them in Distinct’s plain English format. Supports high speed and wireless networks. Supports 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet and wireless TCP/IP adapters and 4/16 Token Ring cards. Works over serial line with a PPP connection. It allows you to filter at any level. You may filter the capture itself to avoid the collection of unnecessary packets and reduce the size of your capture. You may also filter a captured file and save the packets filtered to a new, smaller, more manageable file. Has a Remote IP Sniffing capability through its Agents. Gathers statistics related to the traffic seen by the system it is running on. It includes the ability to produce statistical reports in HTML format. Exports the network packet trace. This allows you to make use of the data gathered right in your application. Packet header information may be exported in a comma separated format (CSV) for use with Excel or imported into a database. Supports a wide range of protocols. It includes parsers for the most important protocols of the Internet including IP, TCP, UDP, HTTP, SMTP, FTP, POP3, IMAP, LDAP, H323, SIP, etc.
