  1. My thoughts are, main features should be: Start or stop instances. Structured Queries (We can create a structured set of queries to run to find information, etc) Performance Information Manage log files. Start or stop the SQL View, Start, Stop, Edit or delete Jobs Replication Status User and Credential Management
  2. I also like this idea, but it's not really easy to add from a programming perspective. Querying AD so often could raise a number of overhead issues. Wonder if there is any other way we can tell?
  3. Paul, There are some suggestions here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4750507/check-anti-virus-status-in-c-sharp
  4. WMI is the best way to monitor this I would imagine, that way it's not dependant on knowing about every Antivirus product. I am guessing Mobile PC monitor will eventually include the ability to view the Windows Firewall / Security Center status.
  5. That is true, but at least it's something in the meantime for you to log failures. I know the developers are looking at integrating backup monitoring so you never know what comes later.
  6. Nick, The limit was 5, but reducing it to 3 I feel is perfectly acceptable. Having more than 3 machines at home is unusual for personal use, but then again - I guess we're gadget geeks eh? I do however think that PC monitor is well worth every penny and I have been most impressed with it so far, and there is more on the roadmap to come which I am excited about. I'm sure over the coming years you won't regret a subscription.
  7. This is an interesting plugin which I'm going to watch over the coming months. I've always had a problem with monitoring software in the past losing the goal post by developing ticket systems into their products (take Kaseya or Labtech for example - often a feature never used because it's over complex and ends up getting in the way of the monitoring software design). I like to see PC monitor stick to the core of what the product is all about and have all this functionality additionally available through a plugin, so I think you've done an amazing job here! Well done.
  8. I realise you wish for more functionality, which a plugin will provide. However if for the time being you would like to monitor backup fail status you could monitor for eventid's matching backup failed statuses. The following link explains that you should contact Vembu support for a list of eventID's. http://f.34.79ae.static.theplanet.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4825 Hopefully that will give yourself or anyone else something in the meantime, to make sure you are aware of errors.

    I do agree that half the time I don't install UPS monitoring software. Windows 2008 and above handles it perfectly on it's own. There are two ways to do this currently - although I'm sure PCM will have this future eventually. One could create a plugin I guess, an example: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms704147(v=vs.85).aspx You could use a powershell script to get the status, write an event log with the status should it fall below a certain percent and then report on that.
