Inline Software Monitors CGI Processes

Inline Internet Systems announced this week the availability of Version 2.1 of iSPI, software designed to monitor HTTP, News, Mail, FTP, and other IP devices on NT, UNIX, or Mac Servers.

The product can also monitor CGI processes, SQL databases, and Dial In modem ports.

"The ability of iSPI v2.1 to monitor CGI processes, dial in modem ports, and Web sites that are generated from a database is a step forward in providing companies the ability to monitor their Web sites," said Russ Cobbe, President of Inline.

"Many sites are now dynamically generated but since the HTTP service may still be running properly, a site with a non-functioning database server or failed CGI program will still appear to be functional," added Cobbe.

iSPI v2.1 is a Windows-based client product that can e-mail or page a system administrator when the defined services become unavailable. This can be extremely important as users expect services to be available 24 hours a day.

With iSPI, services can be monitored without having to be onsite 24 hours a day. iSPI can also be used by consultants and end users to monitor up-times of service providers and make informed decisions on who provides the best service.

Pricing starts at US$95. A fully functioning trial version can be downloaded from the Inline Web site.
