TheOne Server Monitor Lite: The Right Tool for the Job?

TheOne Server Monitor

By: Anthony Sullivan

Few things are more infuriating to a developer or IT person than finding out a production server is down and has been for hours or days without you knowing it. But as annoying as that is, it really never occurred to me to run a monitor to check it until recently, when my Web server was down for a couple of days.

Now I'm on the hunt for a good monitor to keep me aware of my server status. Which brings me to TheOne. No, not Neo. TheOne Server Monitor.

You can download your own copy of TheOne Server Monitor from the TechRepublic Software Library.

Upon loading TheOne for the first time, we see this screen. We need to configure and add services to be monitored before it will be any use to us.
