Multi-Server Monitoring System (MSMS6)
Control System for NetWare Servers, OES Linux Servers and Windows Servers and Workstations.

System features:

  • A very useful tool for a real-time servers and workstations activities monitoring.
  • Monitoring servers and workstations based on the following operating systems:
  •     - Windows 2008 Server Family
        - Windows 2003 Server Family
        - Windows 2000 Server
        - Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8
        - Windows 2000, Windows XP
        - OES Linux (will be available soon)
        - NetWare 5.x, NetWare 6.x, OES NetWare
  • Extremely simple and easy to use.
  • The ideal complement to other expensive and sophisticated control systems based on SNMP protocol.
  • Works in the local networks (over Wi-Fi) as well as on the internet (through VPN).
    Important: It is not possible to gain the connection with systems over the internet in 2G/3G technology. In this case smartphone receives from GSM provider local, non-routable IP address. In this mode only connection with monitored network over VPN enables connectivity with monitored systems.
  • Requires only a simple remote agent running on every monitored server or workstation.
  • For communication uses TCP/IP protocol and a port number specified by administrator (default 2100).
    Important: Do not forget to include this port settings in a firewall configuration.




  • Features of main system module MSMS6 (running on a smartphone):

  • Displays status of server activity continuously on selected Netware servers.
  • Displays status of server and workstation activity continuously on selected Windows servers or workstations.
  • Displays icons of systems accordingly to the connection status (Fig.1):
  •     - on green as the connection is correct,
        - on yellow as a lack of connection is between 5 and 10 minutes (YELLOW ALERT),
        - on red as a lack of connection is above 10 minutes (RED ALERT).
    After start MSMS system the first status changes of the monitored systems are available after about 60 seconds.
  • During displaying the main MSMS screen the smartphone saver screen is switched off.
  • It can work in the background by pressing button 'Home' on the smartphone.
  • MSMS6 main module running in the background, when the smartphone changes its mode to 'sleep', keeps CPU and Wi-Fi interface in an active state. Thus the system's status control is available also in the 'sleep' mode of the smartphone.
  • MSMS6 module works on ANDROID Smartphone

    DWAGENT6.EXE modules works as a service.

    Installation:

  • download DWAGENT6.EXE from: here
  • run DWAGENT6.EXE on controlled Windows Server or Workstation
  • Fig.8


    In the IP address of Main Managing Server field enter an IP address of the smartphone which is connected to the local network In the TCP port of Main Managing Server field enter a port number on which MSMS system will listen to the IP frames coming from the monitored systems.

    System consists of DWAGENT6.NLM module running on every controlled NetWare Server and MSMS6.APK running on Android smartphone.

    Installation:

  • download DWAGENT6.NLM module from: here
  • write the module into SYSTEM directory on SYS volume.
  • Start DWAGENT6 module on NetWare server:
  • dwagent6 /Nservername /Aipaddress /Pipport

    where:

    servername - name used by managing server to identify every controlled server. It is not necessary to keep the same server name as it is set in NDS. Maximum length of this name is 12 characters. In case of omitting this parameter the default value will be assigned as exists in NDS
    ipaddress - IP address of the Android smartphone. Required parameter.
    ipport - IP port number of the Android smartphone. When it is omitted the default value is set to 2100.

    To finish a running DWAGENT6 module it should be entered a command:
