We are glad to introduce IPHost mobile app (currently available for Android 4.4 or newer). To start using Push notifications on your Android device(s), please upgrade your IPHost installation to v5.3 or later version. You would also need an Android mobile device running free IPHost mobile app. We have added a quick start reference for IPHost mobile app; it typically takes less than 5 minutes to install the app, connect it to the IPHost desktop installation and commence receiving Push notifications.

Low latency networks are the ideal media; in typical intranet all the hosts can be reached in a few milliseconds. Monitoring tools, starting from typical default ping utility (the one that sends ICMP Echo packets and waits for response), are consistent in their results if typical response is above 10-15 milliseconds. When response time drops significantly and is circa 1ms or even less, the results may begin to vary considerably.

Imagine you need a monitor to react to a derivative of several performance values. For example, you could need to only trigger alert if CPU load and free memory have both crossed certain thresholds. If those monitors are related to the same host, you can always use generic monitor type, such as Script or Program, Python script etc. and do whatever math is required. What should you do if the performance values can only be taken from different hosts? There are several solutions.

Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a software component allowing to run Linux applications directly on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 starting from August 2016. There are several software projects aimed at running/porting certain GNU/Linux applications to Windows, most known being Cygwin and Minfw-w64.

Scripting languages (VBScript, Python, PowerShell etc) are both flexible and convenient to create small scripts, to handle a simple monitoring task (such as poll a device for data or execute custom alert). Python has an advantage of being general purpose cross-platform scripting language for years, with many well-known scripts either already available on the Net, or quick to compose.

Accessing Windows registry (local or remote) is a typical way of gathering useful data. However, there’s a typical pitfall that can cause unexpected scripts or programs behavior. Namely, accessing registry values across different architectures (say, 64-bit entries from 32-bit applications).

There are instructions to get started with IPHost Network Monitor, covering most typical situations. However, using the defaults (for both monitors parameters and for network discovery) when looking for hosts and/or monitors can result in rather slow setup. In most cases, it is simpler to create "draft", lightweight monitors just to make sure the service exists and accepts connections, and add actual protocol-specific checks as required.

Certain changes in services or devices can often be misheeded; failure to recognize even subtle changes can later result in unpleasant consequences. Below we list several examples of such incidents; the checks described are rather lightweight and can be run frequently for critical network assets. The cases below assume that any change in current device’ state should be treated as security issue.

There are three basic types of activity in information security – those that should be performed periodically to reduce possible risks to minimum. Periodic updates is one of them: as software pieces are being developed and enhanced, it is required to update them for many reasons, one of them being possible vulnerabilities.

While monitoring different types of OS, it is essential to reduce the number of tools used to a logical and reasonable minimum. Under “tools”, we understand all kinds of APIs, software packages and technologies are used to perform the monitoring tasks. For example, same or similar tasks of monitoring system resources can be solved by using SNMP, WMI, various scripting languages, such as PS1, Python, VBasic and so on.

IPHost Network Monitor application installation

IPHost Network Monitor is a Windows application, capable of monitoring various network devices and alerting to the changes in performance and/or availability. IPHost Network Monitor allows you to organize continuous monitoring of your critical network assets: servers, applications and network equipment.

IPHost monitors your network resources 24 hours a day and alerts you to issues.

With IPHost Network Monitor you can monitor both Windows and Unix based networks, various servers and network equipment, availability and performance characteristics of web and other applications. The advanced alerting system provides timely notifications using several means such as e-mail, SMS, and instant messengers; the system is also able to execute correcting actions locally or remotely via SSH. Reporting and graphs are available through a web interface.

Main Features:

  • Application Templates: Monitors from an application template perform in-depth checks of a particular type of servers and applications. You can easily create and maintain monitors from an application template.
  • Alerts – Notifications: More than 10 alert types for user notification about network resource issues. Program can send email, SMS or instant message, can play sound. There are a couple of alerts for autorecovery (scripts).
  • Distributed Monitoring: IPHost Network Monitor can monitor distributed networks. Install Remote network agent in every subnet and you can monitor them using each monitoring method supported.
  • Monitors – Protocols: More than 40 supported monitoring methods: starting from PING till SNMP and WMI, including traffic monitoring. Excellent web monitoring abilities: you can check one page with HTTP request or page sequence with Web Transaction monitor.
  • Network Discovery: With network discovery wizard you can find network hosts and start monitoring of their resources. Discovery can be scheduled to start on schedule. You can set discovery for each remote network agent.
