Description: WebWatchBot is monitoring and analysis software for web sites and Internet Protocol (IP) devices. It includes alerting functionality and tools to analyze and visualize historical data with real-time charting and graphs.

WebWatchBot includes a web based Graphical User Interface (GUI) for reports, monitor status and user admin tasks. Monitoring is accomplished by connecting to a web server and downloading a specific web page using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) with optional posting of data to submit a form. Server monitoring types include Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), and Domain Name System (DNS). Resource monitoring includes performance (CPU, memory), specific files, disk usage, specific processes and services, Windows event log and other system objects. It can ping servers and ports to determine accessibility and perform trace routes and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) commands and monitor for specific return values. Monitoring data is stored in a new or pre-existing Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) database.
