Here, you can download a free trial version of our distributed network monitoring system 10-Strike Network Monitor Pro and test the program in your environment for 30 days prior purchasing a license without any limitations.
Current product version: 5.5
Operating systems supported: Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/8.1/2012/10
Trial Period: 30 days (and no other limitations)
All the required components (Firebird SQL database, monitoring server and agent installation packages) are already included into our common installation package and can be easily installed on one PC for the testing purposes in several minutes.
Download 10-Strike Network Monitor Pro - the main package with all components except the web UI, 54 MB (a recommended download option for the first usage)
You can also download and install a necessary component separately if it has been updated (not recommended if you are a new user) or add the web UI:
Download the Web Interface, 82 MB - web UI for remote access and managemet (the package contains the web UI files, Jetty web server, and Java)
Download the distributed Monitoring Service, 10 MB - for installing on monitoring servers
Download the Remote Agent (.exe package), 2 MB - for executing some monitoring checks locally on remote computers (like CPU temperature, fan speed, ICMP ping, etc.)
Download the Remote Agent (.msi package), 2 MB - the same as above but as .MSI package for the Group Policy installation
If you have installed the Application on a low-end computer, it is recommended that you create a Monitoring Database with at most 2,000 checks. The same applies to the Application that runs in a virtual machine. If you need to have more checks, it is recommended that you install the Application on a separate physical server.
When selecting a server for deploying the Application's Firebird database, keep in mind that the Monitoring Service makes a lot of statistical entries. So consider write-caching and using RAID, which can significantly improve the Application's performance.
The maximum number of checks that one Monitoring Service can handle without any significant deterioration of its performance depends on the type of checks:
- ICMP, SNMPv1-2, ARP, HTTP, and file checks are the least resource-intensive checks. One Monitoring Service can handle up to 10,000 of such checks with a polling interval of 30 seconds or more.
- SNMP v3 – this check type involves making about 40 network requests per second. For example, if you have a computer with a dual-core CPU running at 1 GHz, avoid monitoring more than 5,000 checks of this type with a polling interval of less than 60 seconds. The CPU load will be 50 percent or more.
- WMI – checks of this type ( WMI requests , network drive , local printer ) are resource intensive. So avoid creating more than 200 checks with a polling interval of 30 seconds or less, more than 1,000 checks with a polling interval of 150 seconds or less, and so on.
- Similar requirements apply to NetBIOS-based checks ( service state , process state , software control , event log ).
If you are going to have a very large Monitoring Database, use several Monitoring Servers and balance the load between them.
Regardless of equipment configuration, it is recommended that one Monitoring Service handles at most 10,000 checks.
How to install the program
Download the program using the above links. Run the installation package and click "Allow" if the system asks for your permission. Follow the installation wizard's instructions, click "Next" till the "Finish" button appears. No additional components will be installed.
The Firebird database can be installed on any server so the Main Application and the monitoring servers could connect to it. You can install the database on your server and the managing console on your PC.
The Jetty web server and our Java web interface can be installed on another server. It just need the database connection (over the 3050 TCP port). The Jetty web server requires a Java machine JRE version 7 or newer.
The Firebird database, Jetty, and Java can be installed on various platforms. So the 10-Strike Network Monitor Pro distributed monitoring system is almost a cross platform system. Windows is required only for the monitoring centers (computers where the Monitoring Services and Agents are installed).
How to remove the program
Use the standard system software removing procedure (Control panel -> Add/remove programs) or use the program deletion shortcut in the program's group in the Start menu.
