Watch It is an up-down network monitor. It can monitor numerous device types, including the following:

  • Servers
  • Routers
  • Websites
  • Workstations

Watch It notifies you when network response time begins to degrade or when a device is down. Alerts sounds can configured to play when a device drops packets, stops responding, and when a down device becomes active again.
