Welcome to West Wind Web Monitor

© West Wind Technologies, 1995-2015

Need to keep an eye on your Web site? Worried that the site might not be up and running returning accurate results? Or do you need to have your Web site perform tasks at regular maintenance operations at regular intervals?

Web Monitor can help you monitor Web links to make sure they are still online. It can watch multiple Web sites and links and notify you via email or pager when there is a problem. It can even launch another URL or executable file to correct the problem without manual intervention when a failure occurs. And it will notify you again if the site comes back up if the automated tasks succeeded.

Web Monitor can run as a Windows Service or as an interactive application on the desktop or in the taskbar. You can use the interactive UI to set up sites for either interface, or use plain XML files for scripted non-interactive configuration.

There have been lots of changes in Version 3.0 including support for Windows Service operation, new logging options and the ability to remotely administer Web Monitor and view status. See for yourself what's new in 3.0.
