Why isn't the ... instant messaging alert no longer working?

Most of the instant messaging providers are using none-documented protocols.  This means that each time they implement a change (and they do that often) we can have a problem with the login or sending of messages. 


That's the main reason why using instant messaging as alerting is not very reliable.


All IM alerting works again in Servers Alive v6.1 (ofcourse until one of the IM servers changes the protocol(s) it uses).

Customer praise

"Just wanted to let you know how well Servers Alive is working. We used it for monitoring the World Cup 98 Mens Soccer system in France (monitoring from Colorado to 12 cities in France).

Now it's being used for the Womens World Cup 99 here in the United States. It's monitoring the machines (ping) and the Sybase SQL Server ports as well as routers. From here in Colorado, I'm able to know what's up or down at 8 cities (40+ hosts/processes), usually before they know it's down."
