Software suggestion to monitor computers from the cloud

Hi Guys

im after some advise on what software people currently use.

Im after an installable client that will monitor all aspects of a computer or servers hardware, software and attached perpherials (print jams etc).  Then i want to be emailed alerts and also be able to check on everything from a website. Clients must be free and not thethered to a server as lots of computers are off the active directory, some not even part of an active directory.

Long story short i was starting to bring build clients onboard using the GFI Max (now LogicMax) but this month they have annouced a minimum charge of £50 per month regargless of current or future installed computers. i would of acheived this in around 6 months but they are not interested in smaller customres by the looks of things.

Things im looking to be checked are similar to the following

HDD Smart checks
Widows updates installing okay
Event errors
Software crashes
Antivirus updates
Backup checks
Printer Jams


so anything that anyone can suggest the better. happy with opensource/free, ideally pay monthly per PC/service used but if need to i can cope with an annual client fee.

help and advise is much appreciated.

I personally prefer Server Density for your requirements, but I think that's not quite what you want based on budget.   TeamViewer IT Brain is a nice addon for simple stuff if you have TV corporate licensing.   I continue to use Kaseya and as much as I hate it I have no intention on leaving because I like that I can use it on desktops and on servers... plus it's quite powerful.

You could try NetCrunch 8. It's actually agentless, and has a powerful web console if you don't want to VPN in. You can have it installed on-site as a per-client install, or have a central server for yourself that VPNs into client networks. Decypher Technologies is an MSP that uses NetCrunch in such a way. It's node-based licensing, and the licenses are perpetual, so it's a one-time fee if you choose not to renew maintenance after one year (tech support and upgrade protection).

thanks for the suggestions so far, Kaseya seems to be the closest so far as it works by intalling onto the client comptuers.  Currently i am looking at what they have to offer.

my aim is to taget very small businesses with under 10 PCs or maybe even single home PCs who want there PC monitored for issues.

if any other suggestions are out there please let me know
