NetGong is an intuitive network monitoring tool that allows network administrators, webmasters, and Internet service providers to monitor any networked device on the Internet, corporate intranet, or TCP/IP LAN and receive alerts immediately via audible alarm, message, e-mail, or third-party software when a connection fails. It is a powerful personal monitoring product delivering low cost, simplicity of operation, and round-the-clock coverage. An essential addition to any network administrator's personal toolkit, NetGong allows users to tailor it to their particular area of responsibility, from a single server to a small-office LAN to hundreds of devices within a large corporate network. Corporate network managers can use NetGong to distribute responsibility among IS staffers and complement existing network management systems.
Small businesses can afford to employ NetGong for monitoring critical e-mail and Web servers. NetGong features: runs as a system service automatically on startup, allows you to monitor network devices or services without installing an agent on each machine, allows quick network resource configuration, allows all parameters to be set independently for each network resource, permits you to temporarily disable monitoring of certain resources, alerts you to failures using a variety of techniques ranging from audible alarms to third-party software, allows you "fine tune" the alerting functions to avoid unnecessary alerting during an extended failure, alerts can be enabled for any combination of failure and recovery notices and allows custom alerts to be created for each monitored resource.
