Alchemy Eye is a network monitor that continuously monitors network server availability and performance. In the event of network errors, Alchemy Eye can alert the network administrator by cell phone or pager BEFORE problems get seriously out of hand. This helps protect your company's data and reduces the likelihood of costly network failures. If a server goes down, Alchemy Eye automatically notifies the network administrator and writes a detailed log file.
On any type of server, Alchemy Eye monitors server functions using a variety of protocols and services, including:
* ICMP (ping) network monitoring
* NT Event Log computer monitoring
* HTTP(S)/FTP URL internet monitor (with or without contents filters)
* Free Disk Space hardware monitor
* NT Service State server monitor
* Oracle Server network monitor
* MS SQL Server monitor
* SQL query result monitor
* Monitoring any SQL server thru ODBC
* External application execution system monitor
* File existence file monitor
* NetBIOS LAN monitor
* SMTP/POP3 mail server monitor
* IPX/SPX file server monitor
* RAS Server dial-up monitor
* VBScript program
* Telnet Server monitor
* NNTP Server monitor
* IMAP mail server monitor
* BDE servers monitoring
* LDAP servers monitoring
* TCP / IP monitor
* Plugins and add-ons
Network administrator alerts
Alchemy Eye automatically notifies the Network Administrator about server malfunction events. In the case of a network failure this network monitor can:
* Send email alerts [info]

These timely alerts help to minimize network downtime and keep small problems from snowballing into serious, debilitating network issues. If the function list above does not contain the alert type you need, please check out the program's plugins section.
Free maintenance and support
The first version of our network monitoring tool was released in Dec 1999, and since that time we release new versions of the program every month. Once you become a customer all new releases and technical support are free forever!
Console separated from the monitor
Since version 9.3 the you can run the program console (graphical front end) and monitoring engine (faceless back end) on different computers, connecting console to the monitoring engine thru Internet or TCP/IP-enabled network. This allows you, having the monitoring engine in one physical location, connect to it from almost everywhere (including the home computer) and check the status of your servers.
Configurable log files
Alchemy Eye network monitor can log application events to a log file. Different log file detail levels (none/normal/full) and log file formats (text or HTML) can be configured to suit your needs.
Server availability reports
With Alchemy Eye you can build server availability reports showing how long your servers were unavailable, what network errors occured during the monitoring and much, much more. Moreover, with the new version of the network monitor program you can create your own statistics reports or order new reports from Alchemy Lab!
Network Scanner is a useful feature that allows you to automatically add network devices to your server list and network map. It scans your network hosts in specified IP address range using different protocols and services, such as ICMP, SNMP, SMB, HTTP, FTP, Telnet and others. Based on the scanned data, this utility detects type of the device (server, workstation, switch, router etc.) and suggests to add the detected devices to the existing server list and network map. You can choose different protocols and services to check and specify the device type. Network Scanner is able to make easier the network administrator's work in large networks.
