DreamSys Server Monitor, once a commercial remote server monitoring software, is now available as a free download from the developer's homepage. The user still needs to enter registration information after installation. They are however available on the homepage without the need for registration or any other kind of data grabbing. The Server Monitor application can be used to monitor servers over a network or the Internet.

The system administrator starts by adding new servers that should be monitored to the application. Required information are a unique name, the server address and the monitoring type. Available monitoring types are TCP / IP, Ping or Services. Additional information might be required depending on the type selected. A TCP / IP monitoring for example requires a port that can be added in the same interface.

The events and notifications that can be configured are quite extensive. Events can be configured for positive and negative results. Positive results - meaning the remote server is up and running - are limited to playing a sound or running a command while negative results (server down) include the additional options to reboot the computer or start a service.

Three notification types are available. The administrator can be informed by email, message box or net message.

Specific parameters for every server can be configured in the Configuration View tab. It allows the user to change the monitoring interval, configure the connection timeout, set the mail server and enable the logging of events.

DreamSys Server Monitor can be used as a Internet or network monitoring software. It lacks some of the features of advanced monitoring applications that offer website or database monitoring but could be enough for administrators who do not need that functionality.

    DreamSys Server Monitor is a free, simple server monitoring tool that is very easy to set up, yet it has all the essential features for basic server monitoring. The tool is certainly no match for a sophisticated program like The Dude. However, for The Dude you need a couple of hours to learn how it works. On the other hand you will master DreamSys Server Monitor in a few minutes.

    The tool supports three monitoring types: Ping, TCP/IP, and services. For ping you can configure the number of tries and the seconds between retries. TCP/IP monitoring allows you to specify the TCP port. You can also send text to the server and examine the contents of the reply. Service monitoring enables you to check the availability of a Windows service. DreamSys Server Monitor can display a list of all services available on the remote machine. For all three types you can define the number of allowed failures. It is also possible to configure the monitor interval, but it has to be the same for all servers.
