Cuevision Server Monitor

Cuevision server monitor is an agentless monitoring system that excels in providing network and system administrators with critical information about the performance and status of servers, web sites and applications.


There are many built-in monitors for Windows servers, websites and network devices.
The Windows Event Log monitor which can monitor event logs and look for specific message text, event id’s and more.
The VBScript monitor allows you to use your own scripts to monitor anything in your environment. By plugging your scripts into Cuevision Server Monitor you gain the flexibility of being able to set alerts and create recovery actions based on events that your scripts are monitoring.
The ping monitor can check if devices in the network are responding.
The HTTP monitor can download web pages and monitor the text on the page, the download time of the page whether the page is responding or not.
Other monitors include the Windows service monitor, application monitor, process monitor and performance monitor. The performance monitor is available for monitoring critical Windows performance data such as CPU, disk space, memory and processes as well as ASP pages.
All data gathered through different monitors can be used to build reports.


A system administrator is always on the go, that’s why alerting is important. Cuevision Server Monitor can send alerts to the Windows Event Log, log files, popup messages to machines on the network, or email messages with customized information that can tell you about the alarm that triggered the alert and actions that were executed as a result.


Rich performance reporting is available for all monitors in real-time or historically. Multiple monitors can be graphed side by side for comparing trends over time.


Adding monitors is made simple by using the discovery module. Simply enter a range of IP addresses and the application will find available devices on the network. Once the devices are identified, creating monitors for them is as easy as clicking a few buttons. A map windows allows you to see the monitors the way you want. You can load a background map that depicts your server room or physical location around the country and arrange the icons for a clearer view of the monitors. Cuevision Server Monitor runs as a service and does not require you to deploy agents to monitored systems, it monitors them remotely.
