10-Strike Bandwidth Monitor’s monitoring engine is released as a service application, thus it can be installed on a server. It constantly collects the statistics on the inbound and outbound traffic on network devices, which passes through network interfaces on computers and switches, and displays the dynamic of the transfer speed changes in the real-time on graphic charts. 10-Strike Bandwidth Monitor supports a few methods of gathering the bandwidth usage data: via SNMP, via WMI, and via remote agents for Windows machines, which should be installed on remote computers. The SNMP protocol can be used to monitor the network bandwidth usage on computers as well as on switches and other active network hardware that does not support WMI. The flexibility of the program allows deploying it in heterogeneous networks and monitoring a wide spread of networking devices.
The program offers various features for monitoring bandwidth and traffic, sending notifications and executing particular actions when a failure occurs or an alert arises (the traffic usage limit is reached, network interface is down, and so on). When a notification event occurs, the program can automatically shut down a remote computer, run an external application, restart a service, display a message on the screen, or play a sound alarm. The administrator can configure the program for sending e-mail notifications or SMS messages to mobile phones.
The new release 2.2 offers new options for sending alerts via e-mail and SMS. New diagrams and reports were added to the program. SNMPv3 is now supported (a secured version of SNMP). The traffic statistics data can be exported to CSV files which can be imported to a database or Excel.
10-Strike Bandwidth Monitor 2.2 runs under Windows 2000/XP/2003/
