If physical host machine has not enough resources or performance to keep every virtual machine running the solution is to start virtual machines only when needed. Wake-On-LAN Virtual Machine implements the Wake-On-LAN computer networking standard to turn on virtual machines. When the program starts it searches for existing Microsoft Hyper-V, Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, Oracle VM VirtualBox, VMware Server, VMware Workstation and VMware Player virtual machines. Then it retrieves a list of virtual machine names and their MAC addresses and shows it as a tree view. The list can be exported to different file formats. If Wake-On-LAN Virtual Machine receives a magic packets with MAC address which is in the list it turns on the found virtual machine using vendor utilities. The program consists of a Windows GUI application and a Windows service. The Windows service allows to power on virtual machines without logon to the host machine. Wake-On-LAN Virtual Machine shows log information on the screen, generates a log file and Event Viewer logs.
Remote Desktop Assistant is a wrapper for Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection. It creates RDP configuration files and utilizes the Remote Desktop Client (mstsc.exe). Also, the program combines the features of a ping and port monitor, and a Wake-On-LAN magic packet sender, retrieving automatically MAC addresses of LAN computers. It manages multiple remote desktop connections and allows to configure more RDP file parameters than the Remote Desktop Client. You can add, edit and delete remote computer entries. Remote Desktop Assistant checks remote RDP port status and sends ICMP pings to remote computers. If your remote computers are configured to receive Wake-On-LAN magic packets, this software can turn on them remotely. Remote Desktop Assistant installer includes the additional utilities: Wake-On-LAN Listener, RDP port configuration tool, and Windows shutdown program, which can be copied and used on remote computers.
NetFlow2SQL Collector can be used to receive NetFlow packets from Cisco and other routing devices and store their contents into databases on Microsoft SQL and MySQL servers for retrieval and analysis. NetFlow2SQL Collector runs in background as a Windows service, listens traffic data, and records it continuously. The main features of the NetFlow2SQL Collector are: decoding of NetFlow v5 packets; accessing up to ten local and remote SQL servers; creating new SQL tables and dropping old ones; providing user-friendly interface to configure your router list, control the Windows service, and monitor the overall process. The configuration settings are: NetFlow UDP port number, NetFlow router IP address, MSSQL or MySQL server host name, SQL server TCP port number, SQL database name, SQL server user name, SQL server password. NetFlow2SQL Collector automatically creates each month a new table in the given database. The table fields are: Num - record number, FlowSeq - NetFlow sequence counter, DateTime - current count of seconds since 0000 UTC 1970 (Unix time), SrcAddr - source IP address, SrcPort - TCP/UDP source port number, DstAddr - destination IP address, DstPort - TCP/UDP destination port number, NextAddr - IP address of next hop router, Protocol - IP protocol type (TCP, UDP or other), Packets - number of packets in the flow, Bytes - number of bytes in the flow, Input - SNMP index of input interface, Output - SNMP index of output interface. NetFlow2SQL Explorer can be used to explore contents of NetFlow packets stored in MSSQL and MySQL databases by NetFlow2SQL Collector. The program creates a list of SQL servers, databases and tables and allows to retrieve data by following criteria: date, time, source, destination and next IP addresses or their masks, source and destination ports, IP protocol number. Also, it is possible to perform custom queries using WHERE clause search conditions. Fetched rows are shown as a data sheet and can be exported into csv and xls files.
A server uptime monitor is a must-have for any business which provides online services to their clients or any other organization which needs to ensure the highest degree of reliability of their networked resources. sMonitor presents a server uptime monitor which will constantly monitor the online status of both local and remote servers over the TCP/IP protocol. The software creates a customizable HTML file which mirrors the main window of the program. It provides a thorough reporting system including the ability to save files in plain text and HTML formats and upload them automatically to a remote FTP server. It also offers several alert methods including automatic e-mail and SMS alerts as well as both visual and audible alerts. sMonitor supports TCP, UDP and ICMP and it can send protocol-specific UDP requests to DHCP, NTP, NETBOIS, SNMP and LDAP ports. sMonitor presents a highly customizable solution, since you can customize the way reports are recorded and you can even write customized scripts to enjoy an even higher degree of functionality.
