    Hi to all

    I am working for a small project for my boss and we are now looking for a user friendly network monitoring software to create alert if the server(s) are down etc. We need to monitor 20-30 servers without our network / domain.

    We prefer the software does not need to be installed on any of our servers and the software application must be user friendly adn not resource / memory intensive.

    Any suggestions ?

    Please kindly advise ASAP.

    i haven't gotten it setup fully setup on my test network here at work, but check out a freeware software called zenoss.

    might be worth a look.

    You can try LAN Desktop Spy Monitor, but it need be installed.

    +1 for Spiceworks. PRTG might also achieve what you need.

    I've used spiceworks before as well and thought it was pretty good.

    We use GFI Max in our place, costs per machine but has a whole bucket load of useful features and bits.
