Other


Source code example
Download this source code project for an example COM based Servers Alive check.

External Check Samples (errorlevel based)
Used for errorlevel based checks.


SMTP2POP3 - Download SMTP2POP3
We suggest to use the COM version which can be found on this same page
SMTP2POP3 sends an email using SMTP to a mail server, and then attempts to collect that same email through POP3 from a server (not necessarily the same server), thus verifying more completely the functioning of the mail server.
v1.0.0.20 - 14-OCT-2003

Count Files - Download Countfiles
We suggest to use the COM version which can be found on this same page
Let's say you have a mailserver that uses a spool directory. If the mail server is running correctly, it should deliver the mail within 5 minutes to the internet. But since sometimes the mail service runs, and still the mail server isn't running correctly, it's not enough to check the mail server service. It would be nice to be able to check the number of files in the mail server's spooldirectory and have Servers Alive warn you when more the 200 files are in that directory.
By using a combination of the external check of Servers and COUNTFILES.EXE it's now possible.

ODBC Check - Download ODBC Check
We suggest to use the COM version which can be found on this same page
Verify an ODBC connection. Just opens and closes a connection.

WINS Check - Download WINS Check
Verify if your WINS server resolves names correctly.

DB2 Check - Download DB2 Check
(written by Jason C. Stone)
Checks if a DB2 server is running or not. Uses the DB2 client.


Alternative mailers
Use the other mail option of Servers Alive if our built-in SMTP mailer doesn't fit your needs.


Exchange/MS-Mail - Download Mapisend
Syntax:
mapisend -u "ProfileName" -p "" -r touser -s "subject" -m "%m"

SMTP - Download POSTIE
Some people want a fixed subject (to send to some kind of pager service) and this can NOT be done with the Servers Alive native SMTP mail send.
Syntax:
postie -host:host_name -port:smtp -to:touser -from:fromuser -s:"subject" -msg:"%m"

Customer praise

"What an absolutely fantastic piece of software. Why go down the expensive SNMP route when this does all you need in an enterprise monitoring solution and all for $90! Everything is easy to configure and we had it sending SMS messages in minutes.

Thanks a lot. I will be recommending this to all my colleagues."
