PC Monitor by MMSoft

Recommended Posts

mailman1988

While thumbing through the iTunes store I ran across a Free App & software by MMSoft called PC Monitor

http://www.mobilepcmonitor.com

 

After loading the program on your server/PC, it will securely report to your mobile device.

Has anyone tested this on V1 or V2? or any other Server's?

Thanks

Well, I guess I'm the Guinea Pig. So I d/l and installed this App on my WHS V1 @ Home as well as in the Office. So Far so good. I like the interface. I am impress with all the controls this program offers on both the desktop as well as my iPod Touch. There is a Lag from my Touch to the Server. That is, when you request info, it take a few moments to loop back and give the reply-expected. The nice thing was that I got notification that there was updates to be installed (after the required Dot Net 4.0 installation).

There is a lag when I did a reboot and received a system notification-about 3 minutes.

You can configure what notifications you get or want to get. You can pick and choose what needs to monitored.

I short, for Free, this is a very powerful application.

I'll update more as I continue to use this.

More update.

There is a tab that tells you System info. Like CPU (by core), HD, Memory, Lan... Load by %, Temps in F or C. Even Fan Speed

Processes running,(you can even Kill a Process from your mobile device) Users Logged in, Event Log's-Very useful. Even Screen shots of what is being looked at from remote desktop.

You can view folders and files on the HD, but not open them.

 

If you manage multiple Servers, this software is even more useful. You can see, at a glance the health of each server you manage.

I presume it's iOS only?

Android is kinda expected, but you have to congratulate them for including WP7.

This actually looks pretty cool. I was curious to see the price point and ROI for the home vs the business version. Quite an interesting find, thanks!

I have been using this for a couple of months... no issues. I can keep pc's updated remotely. You can add more pc's after the three free for $7/year and $6/year depending on quantity. Here is the site: http://mobilepcmonitor.com/

 

By option, if a program is installed... you get an alert. If a CD is put in or removed, you get an alert. Monitors temp's for the cpu and MB and reports the temps to you. Check for M$ updates... all from my Android phone.

      I like this author but he seems to blame  MicroSD technology for user error. I used to love a phone that supported upgradeable storage but finally bit the bullet and went with a 128Gb Pixel XL and couldn't be happier.  No errors with the card, no worries with drops, and faster storage.
      Secondly, this all could have been avoided by locking the phone! No, you might not get it back, but your worries are gone, and scumbag thief has a bricked device. A good home warranty will replace that handset.

      The last two points I get. No arguments there.  Seriously folks. Upgrade from your old Galaxy S3, Ahem Avram Piltch, get a decent phone and a good home warranty coverage for your portables.
       
      Read the rest of this article and pay attention to the Transition section. These points and many more make it VERY hard for me to consider an iOS device as my daily handset.

      Do any of you guys (or gals) use or have any recommendations for GPS apps for iOS? I heard Dave talk about Garmin's I think on a recent HSS and also Navagon which a friend of mine recommended. I wanted to see if anyone else has had any experience/recommendations. Any pros/cons vs. standalone GPS? My wife and I currently have a standalone that I ended up giving to her. Of course that leaves me out in the cold if I end up lost or in need of direction. So rather than getting another standalone I thought we'd invest in software for our iPhones instead.
       
      Thanks for any advice.
