ipMonitor New Secure HTTP Server
- Supports secure client/server communication using the SSL protocol over HTTP.
Supported acquisition methods are, Self-Signed Certificates, certificates issued by trusted certificate providers such as FreeSSL™, InstantSSL™ or VeriSign®, and Microsoft® Windows® Certificate Services.
- Digest Access Authentication is used to avoid sending password information in cleartext in the event SSL is not implemented.
- User access to ipMonitor may be granted or revoked based on the client IP address or a range of IP addresses. If access is revoked, ipMonitor will deny access to any users coming from those IP addresses. If access is allowed, ipMonitor will only communicate with those IP addresses included in its IP Access Filters list.
- Non-administrator User accounts support detailed per-user access control to ipMonitor features. Administrators have access to all ipMonitor features.
New Credentials Manager
- Individual Monitors, Alerts and features that require access to Windows® file system objects or Services via the network may be controlled to run under a specific network account. This allows the ipMonitor Service to run under the lowest permission context possible, and use accounts with elevated permissions only when required.
- Individual Credentials can be configured to apply various usage restrictions that further control Credential usage, for example Credentials may be used over SSL, or with Digest Authentication schemes, etc.
- Internally ipMonitor uses RSA 512/1024 bit encryption to store all sensitive NT account and credentials data.
New Login Techniques for Monitors
- When possible Monitors will not authenticate using clear text credential exchange. Digest Authentication may be used with HTTP Monitors to prevent the exchange of credentials in clear text.
- NTLM Authentication may be used for secure IMAP4, POP3 and HTTP communication, eliminating the exchange of credentials in clear text.
New Productivity-enhanced Web Interface for ipMonitor
- New improved user interface makes ipMonitor 7 a much faster and productive network monitoring solution.
- Set page length to view large Monitor lists across multiple pages. Click the column header to sort pages by Monitor name, state or type. Use the Filter option to locate and manage individual Monitors or Groups of Monitors.
- Tags can be used with Monitors, Groups, Alerts, Profiles, Accounts, Credentials, Report Generators and Maintenance Schedules to attach notes, links or instructions for use by other administrators or for use by the Filter option.
- Inline help located throughout the interface can be expanded to provide detailed information wherever you need it and rolled back up when you no longer need it.
- New "Server Status" window offers the option to contact ipMonitor regarding fixes, updates and upgrades. As well Tips can be downloaded.
New Delayed Load Sequence & I'm Alive Messages for ipMonitor
Load sequence for Monitors can be controlled in order to reduce the impact on system resources or false failures at the time when the ipMonitor Service is started.
Administrators can be alerted on the startup and shutdown of the ipMonitor Service.
Administrators can be alerted on specified intervals to confirm that the ipMonitor Service is running.
New SNMP Tools for ipMonitor
- ipMonitor now includes an SNMP database containing popular MIBs. The MIB tree can be browsed and the SNMP database can be searched.
- SNMP Monitors and Alerts accept named object identifiers. Object Identifiers can be converted between named and full numerical format.
New Information Alerts with ipMonitor
New Information Alerts provide the File Watching, Event Log and SNMP Trap Monitors the ability to perform searches on data sources that produce variable results; capture and format the data and then "push" it into the various Alert Types that support this option.
ipMonitor New Alerting Features
- ipMonitor supports UCP/SMS text messaging. The SMS Text Pager Alert can use UCP (Universal Computer Protocol) to send an alert to an alphanumeric pager or digital phone with SMS support.
- Alert configuration parameters can be tested for correctness at the time when the Alert is configured (before going live). Built in paging diagnostics and display are provided.
ipMonitor New SOAP Interface
ipMonitor now includes a SOAP interface that may be accessed programmatically.
Using SOAP, you can Add, Edit, Delete, and View configuration elements and their associated object lists from applications developed for .NET, J2EE, PERL, C++ and VB.
ipMonitor New XML Support
- New Popup window displays XML schema for Monitors, Groups, Profiles and Alerts.
- Within its administration interface ipMonitor supports the ability to import and export configuration parameters to XML for Monitors, Groups and their relationship with Monitors, Profiles & Alerts, Maintenance Schedules and Reports.
ipMonitor New Network Scan
- The Network Scan feature locates applications, services and devices for part or the entire network that can be monitored by ipMonitor.
- Configurable discovery methods are, DNS, ICMP/PING, SNMP, and TCP & UDP Port Scanning.
- Results are grouped by IP address or domain name. Monitor types are suggested based on the resources that are discovered.
ipMonitor New Whiteboard
ipMonitor includes a convenient whiteboard located on the Welcome page. The whiteboard offers an ideal location to post messages to all ipMonitor users.
ipMonitor New RegEx Wizard
ipMonitor includes a RegEx Wizard to simplify the creation of Regular Expressions. Regular Expressions may be used with the Event Log, QA SNMP and File Watching Monitor types to analyze and capture data matching different Search Scenarios, then format the data and "push" it into the various Alert Types that support Information Alerts.
ipMonitor New Maintenance Scheduling
- New Maintenance scheduling features permits administrators to temporarily disable monitoring of certain resources based on rules similar to Microsoft® Outlook®.
- ipMonitor can perform internal routine actions or pause monitoring while external actions are carried out.
Diagnostic Tools ipMonitor
- Alert configuration parameters can be fully tested against Monitors prior to going live.
New paging diagnostics test pager setup prior to going live.
- The Downtime Simulator demonstrates the Alerting process based on configuration parameters entered for individual Monitors. It shows which Alerts will be executed at each failure point for a configured Monitor. It can also be used to determine Alert coverage for a Monitor on a specific day and time period.
ipMonitor 7 Improvements

- Improved QA Link Monitor is now able to download and check HTTPS links. The "Link Filtering" option allows ipMonitor to validate the existence of specific links based on patterns (Extension match, RegEx match, RegEx non-match, Substring search, ==, and !=).
- Improved HTTPS Monitor was called HTTP/SSL Monitor in version 6. It tests a web server's ability to accept incoming connections over a secure channel and construct a dynamic page or run a CGI Script. The HTTPS Monitor is now able to download and search contents for a specific text string. Failure or success can be based on whether the text is found.
- Improved QA SNMP Monitor has been overhauled. Analysis of numeric data supports complex Boolean equations including And/Or operators. Analysis of textual data supports RegEx match, RegEx non-match and Substring search (equal to, not equal to and, And/Or operators are also supported).
- Improved Event Log Monitor is supported by ipMonitor Information Alerts, making it possible to filter and "push" variable information obtained from Event Logs to the various Alert Types that support this option.
- Improved File Monitor is supported by ipMonitor Information Alerts, making it possible to filter and 'push' variable information obtained from files (for example error log files) to the various Alert Types that support this option.
- Improved SNMP Trap Monitor is supported by ipMonitor Information Alerts, making it possible to filter and "push" variable information obtained from SNMP Traps to the various Alert Types that support this option.
- Improved Third Party Monitor now supports passing multiple system environment variables to the executable file being monitored, as well as the values to be returned when the defined variables are read. Test results can be compared as an Environment Variable or a Process
- Return Value (the value ipMonitor is expecting to be returned when the process terminates).
- Improved ADO Monitor replaces the outdated ipMonitor 6 ODBC Monitor. The ADO Monitor supports Microsoft® SQL Server, Oracle® from Oracle or Microsoft, Microsoft Jet, Active Directory or User defined database types.
- Improved QA HTTP Monitor no longer requires a separate on disk copy; a snapshot of the specified file is taken so an on-disk copy of the target resource is not maintained by ipMonitor.
- Improved QA FTP Monitor no longer requires a separate on disk copy; a snapshot of the specified file is taken so an on-disk copy of the target resource is not maintained by ipMonitor.
- Each Monitor has individual Timing Parameters. Separate intervals can be configured for each of a Monitor's four testing States (UP, WARN, DOWN, LOST).
- Individual Monitors can now contain dedicated recovery information. Environment Variables are used to define parameters for the Reboot Server and/or Restart Service Alerts.
- Email Reports no longer require a configured "Job". Email Alerts can now be sent to multiple recipients and scheduled on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
- Alerts now support independent Failure, Recovery and Information Notices (for Alerts that support Information Alerts).
- Services with Dependencies can now be restarted by the Restart Service Recovery Action.
- More Tokens are available for customizing ipMonitor Alerts. Tokens are replaced with dynamic content when Alerts are executed.
- The Custom Email Alert now allows the email message to be completely configured including the message headers, subject and message body as defined by RFC 822.
- Report images are available in PNG and GIF format. ipMonitor no longer uses Java as in ipMonitor 6.
- Improved Third Party Alert now supports setting Environment variable name and variable values that may be passed to the executable file when it is started.
