Editor's review

A tool that monitors all network services on a Server and alerts the user in case one of them stops functioning.

Pros: The First Alert Service Monitor is a tool that can monitor all network services on a Server. So for example if a web site stops functioning (because of some Server process going down) then the user will be alerted and he / she can take some appropriate action to fix the problem. The same is true of any other network service which goes down. Alerting is done in a number of ways, including but not limited to: a sound alert, an alert message, an alert email (both at the start and end of the alert event), paging, and even running a pre-specified program. It helps especially in the case where the site is being hosted remotely by a service provider, because the tool can still monitor that and alert the user. The logging function maintains a record for referencing later, if required.

Cons: It has a very basic interface that looks very much like it is the output of a VB program (with not too much enhancement whatsoever). This is a fault. Overall, it does have that look and feel of a temporary effort, so that although options are available it is hard to find them and use them. Plus one really has to have a firm grasp of what one is doing to be able to use it successfully because the tool will not help you (or surprise you) with its simplicity or intuitiveness.

Overall: 3 stars. 4 stars also possible. The alerting function works. But the interface is not very user friendly.

Publisher's description

Monitors Internet Services and alerts the user with a variety of methods if down. Always know whether or not your web site or other network services are up or down with First Alert Service Monitor.First Alert Service Monitor will check your site or other services as often as you have it configured to. If one of your services stops responding, you will be notified in the ways you have configured and the down time will be logged. If you pay a firm to host your site or service, you should be able to get at least a partial refund from your site hosting company if any serious down time occurs. Save money with First Alert Service Monitor! If one of your Internet Services goes down, you will be alerted by any or all of these many alarms. Select Alerts include: [Error Sound], [Plays your choice of WAV files (once or repeatedly)], [Show Alert Message box], [Send Email at Beginning of Alert], [Send Email at Ending of Alert], [Page you, Phone you], [Execute a Program]. You can use the First Alert Service Monitor [Execute Program] option to fix the problem in many cases. If your site or service does go down and then come back up without you knowing about it, First Alert Service Monitor will send you emails documenting the events date and time from down to up again.
