About MonitorWare Agent

MonitorWare is a line of products for network monitoring, management and analysis by Adiscon. MonitorWare has been designed with a philosophy that small to mid sized enterprises have the same critical network security needs and limited resources to purchase security solutions.

MonitorWare Agent is a solution for those who are interested in centralizing their monitoring needs. It provides all capabilities of WinSyslog and EventReporter plus many classic features of its own. It has been aided with a reliable event delivery SETP protocol and remotely device monitoring features. It provides features to help network administrators/planners, desktop support professionals, system analysts, system administrators, internet managers and technical support staff to make their life easier.

MonitorWare Agent runs on the systems to be monitored and provides the core functionality. It can gather the data from various sources, like the Windows event log, routers, switches, firewalls and many more. It supports very flexible and powerful local filtering and processing of these gathered events. Based on a powerful rule processor, events can be forwarded, processed or discarded - all at the discretion of the system administrator. Even a standalone MonitorWare Agent can play a vital role in network management, e.g. generating alert emails when specific events occure.

Larger environments consolidate MonitorWare Agent data in a central repository like the MonitorWare event database or combined log files. The database is the source of information for all reporting and analysis modules of the MonitorWare system. By default, the database can be created with MySQL, Microsoft Access or Microsoft SQL Server (also available as cost-free MSDE). If standard SQL and ODBC are used, it is easily adaptable to other database systems. For example we know that many customers use it successfully with Oracle databases.

MonitorWare Agent can also integrate with other network monitoring and management related Adiscon products like EventReporter and WinSyslog. In fact, it uses common terms and methods wherever possible, so upgrading from these solutions to the full MonitorWare system is easy.
