Unattended, Professional Hardware Health Monitoring
A very inexpensive, effective monitoring service solution
This is our low end ping/port check service. It is similar in scope to what
advertised on the Internet for $100 or more. Most of those
services use free or nearly free software that's running on a PC in
someone's garage. Our offering is "slightly" more professional.
We've done a lot of investigation and testing to find a UNIX-based solution
that is effective, comprehensive and reliable. The tool we have selected is
not prone to frequent false alarms like most of the other software of this type
seems to be.
And unlike those other services, for a nominal additional cost, our NOC can
receive and take action on outage alerts that are generated. For example, if
our Hardware LAN Monitoring service is monitoring your Frame Relay connections,
our NOC can call your Telco and enter a trouble ticket for you when a circuit goes
This is a great monitoring choice for web sites, routers, WAN connetions or
any situation where proactive monitoring is not needed.
What you'll get
Vigilance Monitoring will test an unlimited number of TCP ports on each
monitored device every 5 minutes. Outage alarms can

monitoring environment and will install patches, updates and so on as
required. We will also add or remove monitored ports at your

We invite you to shop this price. We are confident that you won't find
anything even close to these capabilities at this price. And should you
decide that you really need a more comprehensive monitoring solution
later on, we can easily provide it!

We can also handle incoming SNMP traps from your devices to our NOC for
an additional cost.
$50 per month is too much? Consider this: our service won't have to
reduce the downtime on your equipment very often in a year's time
before it more than pays for itself!
