Spiceworks' Free Network Monitoring Software Now Available

Spiceworks, the professional network for IT, today released the Spiceworks Network Monitor, a new application IT professionals can use to monitor and manage server and network devices in real-time. The new application is free and provides IT departments with an at-a-glance view of the health and availability of devices so they can take proactive steps to keep their infrastructure up and running at all times. Spiceworks' Network Monitor is available for download today.

"Spiceworks' new network monitoring application is yet another example of how we're aggressively developing the tools IT professionals need to do their jobs," said Sanjay Castelino, VP of Marketing at Spiceworks. "We're accelerating our development efforts and expanding the Spiceworks platform in a way that provides the IT community with the capabilities they need to be more effective and responsive to the needs of their organization."

The Spiceworks Network Monitor is a real-time network monitoring application that can be installed and up-and-running on a Windows-based server in as little as 10 minutes. The tool helps IT professionals understand what's happening in their environment by providing a dashboard showing network utilization and server activity including disk and CPU usage, system memory, active services and processes, and other environmental data.

Real-time alerting and configuration options for a series of network conditions are also built in. This allows IT professionals to configure how they're alerted when individual issues arise, either via the Network Monitor dashboard or email depending on the severity of the problem and the preferences of the user. When issues arise, IT professionals can take action to resolve the problem and in the future, users will be able to use remote desktop capabilities to address issues from wherever they may be.

"I've been testing Spiceworks' Network Monitor and it's proven to be easy to set up, lightning quick, and a great way to keep tabs on our environment in real-time," said Philip Moya, IT manager at the San Antonio Kidney Disease Center. "Real-time alerting helps our IT department stay ahead of issues before they happen, ensuring we address potential issues before they impact employees and our business."

The Spiceworks Network Monitor is free and is available for download today.
