ProtoMon is a powerful monitoring tool that allows you to periodically check multiple servers, websites and remote computers. It is a useful tool for the web developers and network administrators who need to check if certain resources are available.
Since websites and servers need to be accessed by hundreds or even thousands of users on a daily basis, even a short period of downtime can have a negative impact on your business reputation or workflow efficiency.
This tool allows you to test the connection at customizable time intervals and display notifications in order to quickly react and fix the problems. Unlike other applications that are specialized only for URL checking, ProtoMon can handle a large variety of connections such as FTP, Telnet or even email servers.
You can also configure the program to check the status of a remote computer in order to view the available hard drive space or the running processes. It is a useful tool for monitoring the network computers or a remote server.
The interface of the program is easy to use and displays the list of configured monitors with the current status. You can customize each item from the list with a description and enable the type of notifications that you want to receive.
While the notifications can be used to send an email message or launch an application, this tool also allows you to generate detailed reports with the downtime statistics for the current week or month. You can create an email template or simply save the reports in order to review them later.
If you are not at your computer but still need to access the status of the monitors, the Remote Viewing feature can generate a real-time HTML report that can be opened remotely with any Internet browser.
Overall, ProtoMon is a flexible tool that can help you monitor and gather statistics for multiple servers and web pages. If you need to perform multiple checks and generate reports for diagnosing downtime issues, you should integrate this tool in your daily activities.
