NetGong is an intuitive network monitoring tool that allows network administrators, webmasters, and Internet service providers to monitor any networked device.
An essential addition to any network administratorÂ’s personal toolkit, NetGong allows users to tailor it to their particular area of responsibility, from a single server to a small-office LAN to hundreds of devices within a large corporate network. Corporate network managers can use NetGong to distribute responsibility among IS staffers and complement existing network management systems. Small businesses can afford to employ NetGong for monitoring critical e-mail and Web servers.
Avoid costly network downtime by using NetGong as your first line of defense. NetGong continually probes and transacts with network resources on timed intervals, to test their availability and responsiveness. If a failure occurs, NetGong automatically notifies you. The result? You are back in business faster!
