QuickMon

QuickMon is a simple monitoring and alerting tool. It allows you to monitor and alert on various resources/services locally or remotely.

New functionality!

A set of new collector agents for SSH monitoring have been added. It makes use of the http://sshnet.codeplex.com library. The following agent types are provided:
  • CPU usage %
  • Memory Free %
  • Disk Free space %
  • Disk IOs
  • Network IOs
  • Process performance (CPU/Mem)
  • SSH Command (for running any single SSH command)

Summary of functionality

  • Polls resources on predefined frequency
  • Agents use a 'plug-in' architecture
  • Agents are (XML) config driven - Each 'agent' can be customized on its own
  • Collectors can service multiple collector agents - of different types
  • Collector hosts returns one of three possible states: Good, Warning or error
  • Several different notifier agent available for alerting
  • Each notifier can be set up to fire on collector states - e.g. only errors/errors and warnings
  • Groups of resources can be monitored (and alert on) as a unit - using Monitor packs
  • Parent Collector host specify if child collectors get run based on specified 'Check behavior'.
  • Collector hosts can run as a 'different user' (impersonation)
  • Alerting can be customized in several ways - like suppression, delaying, repeating etc.
  • Resources on remote machines can be monitored via remote host functionality if direct access is blocked (e.g. firewall)
  • Collector agents can be set to operate only in specified 'service windows'
  • Collector agents can suppress/override polling frequency
  • Corrective scripts can be executed if collector returns error/warning
  • Monitor packs can be used in both a Windows client or a Windows Service
  • It runs on All versions of Windows that supports the .Net 4.0 framework - e.g. 10, 8, 7, Vista and even XP. Windows Server OS'es are also supported.
  • Linux (and any other Nix OS) can be monitored via SSH based agents.
