LinkAlertPC Extended Edition monitors the availability and performance of your organization's servers, workstations, network devices and more. Monitoring is extensive and proactive - links/devices that fail or become unavailable trigger an alert, which generates one or more notifications - including automatic corrective action. Reduce downtime and lower your total cost of ownership.
Supported Link types include Disk, Email, File, Folder, TCP/IP, Ftp, Http, Https, Printer, Service, Stock, UDP/IP, Time, Reminder, Telnet, Process and Events.
Actions - Status, Free Space, Open Read/Write, Connection, Ping, Loopback, File Send/Recv/Content - are interval (frequency) driven, time-out based and include Retry/Recall and active Maintenance support.

Types include 'Application' (invokes a user selected program), 'Audio' (plays a user selected sound file), 'Email' (sends user message), 'Log file' (custom log relating to a specific link), 'Phone' (dispatches prerecorded wav formatted messages) and 'Visual' (popup title and message based dialog). Logs and Reports track and record all events relating to each link. Support is provided for both regular stream based ASCII (CR/LF) terminated text and Excel compatible CSV formats. In addition MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) per link is available as is full alert tracking.
A friendly interface consisting of standard MS windows and controls renders links easy to configure and maintain.
