STAR Device Monitor SDM1977
The STAR Device Monitor software is a great tool for continuous monitoring of various server and network devices within the LAN and the Internet.
The centralized monitoring of network equipment makes it easy to detect potential failures at an early stage - keeping downtimes and associated costs as low as possible.
Flexibility and ease of use are key features: With just a few clicks, you can define individual testing procedures, connection settings and notification options for each single resource.
STAR Device Monitor works independently from the resources being watched. For this reason, it is a perfect solution for any kind of network services and devices, from simple webhosting accounts to complex database-driven applications.
Besides the typical ping tests, STAR Device Monitor is offering various protocols and connection methods like HTTP/HTTPS, POP3/POP3S, SMTP/SMTPS as well as general TCP connections using any desired port number.
Many parameters can be adjusted according to your needs: Delay between single checks, timeouts and threshold values till sending failure notifications, consideration of daily maintenance windows and more.
HTTP(S) connection checks are supporting GET/POST requests and even provide the ability to look for particular keywords in the retrieved contents (this is great for watching database-driven web applications or monitoring complex software installations).
