Real Time Monitoring.

As an IT support company we would like something more than the daily reports we get from SBS.

We would like some sort of real time monitoring - we have tried servers alive but find it not flexible enough and we would rather have it on our PC rather than the remote server which then sends us data.

Does anyone know of a package and if so its name and where to get it from.

Regards
Andy.

Microsoft has just released the beta for System Center Essentials (http://www.microsoft.com/systemcenter/sce/default.mspx) which is one option you have for this.

There are also a number of third party companies which offer such software:  www.levelplatforms.com is one.

If you want real time monitoring of everything then install a SYSLOG Daemon on your PC to receive syslog events from the servers that you want to monitor.  A good syslog daemon is http://www.kiwisyslog.com/index.php .  On the server you want to receive events from you can install a daemon that converts event log entries into SYSLOG entries as they happen and then you will receive them on your SYSLOG daemon on your PC.

I cannot remember the event log to syslog utility I have used.  However, in looking for it I came across this GPL syslog solution which runs on both ends to give you real time feedback: http://www.intersectalliance.com/projects/SnareWindows/

I forgot to mention one other tool which you may want to review, and is also free for SBS networks of up to 20 devices, AdventNet's OpManager:
