"Centralized network monitoring interface for Windows networks."
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 Server 7.0/2000, MSDE 2000, MDAC 2.5-2.8, MSXML 2.6/3.0/4.0/5.0, IE 5.01 and later, Exchange 5.5/2000/2003, Windows Media Player 6.4 and later, Microsoft Virtual Machine, DirectX 7.0 and later, Microsoft Office, and so on.
Use the growing list of plug-ins for gathering important information from the remote computers.
Scan network computers by types (Server, Workstation, SQL Server, etc.).
Scan network computers by names (you can select computers either from the network tree or load a predefined list from the file).
View information immediately from a plug-in, rather than wait for a scan process of all your computers to be completed.

Load previously saved information from the project or from the external file.
Export retrieved information into the CSV or TXT file.
