2. Active Network Monitor
Active Network Monitor is a tool for the day-to-day monitoring of
computers in the network. Active Network Monitor runs under Windows
NT/2000/XP and allows Systems Administrators to gather information from
all the computers (even from the Windows 9x/Me computers) in the
network without installing server-side applications on these computers.
Active Network Monitor provides the powerful technology of storing and
comparing received data. Administrators can make "snapshots" of the
systems for future comparison and notation of changes.
Active Network Monitor has a flexible plug-in based architecture that
allows you to plug in necessary modules on demand. Each module
(plug-in) performs a task and displays retrieved information in its own
window. Active Network Monitor ships with a predefined, constantly
growing list of plug-ins, including plug-ins for monitoring services,
devices, installed applications, disks, shared resources, hardware
resources (IRQs, I/O, DMA and Memory), users, local groups, global
groups and so on. Moreover, the Security Patch Analyzer plug-in
performs security patch assessment for the following operating systems
and applications: Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003, IIS 4.0/5.0, SQL
