MonitorWare Agent Tutorial

This tutorial is to provide an overview of MonitorWare Agent and some of its typical uses.

It is not a complete product documentary but helps enough to understand and target the application according to your needs.

In the tutorial, we start by describing and focusing on the filter conditions, as these are often needed to understand the usage scenarios that follow below.

MonitorWare Agent gathers network events – or “information units” as we call them – with its services.

Each of the events is then forwarded to a rule base, where the event is serially checked against the different rule’s filter conditions.

If such a condition evaluates to true (“matches”), actions associated with this rule are carried out (for example, storing the information unit to disk or emailing an administrative alert).

Debug Logging

When having Debug Logging enabled, the Username used for the Service will be printed below the Version Build number. This is usefull for debugging purposes.
