Server Monitor

Server monitors check services running on servers in the site by using remote procedure calls (RPCs). They also check servers in other sites if the servers are connected with RPCs. No special permissions are required to check the state of services on servers in a remote site. However, without the correct permissions on those servers, it will not be possible for a monitor to synchronize the clocks or restart services.

You can use server monitors to check the condition of all servers, including services and clocks, running at a site. You can also specify the notification actions when a service or computer has stopped, including restarting servers and services and resetting clocks.

One server monitor can monitor multiple servers, and each Administrator program can have multiple server monitors running. If you have different people to notify for different groups of servers, you can create multiple server monitors.
