Sentry-go Quick File & Print  Monitor

Find answers fast -

As servers get ever more powerful and support more and more devices, their roles are being merged. Especially for smaller organisations with just a handful of machines, servers managing both file & print services together are a popular combination. For these servers, the Sentry-go Quick File & Print monitor is ideally placed to automatically monitor all the areas you'd normally wish to check including local printer & queue status, changes made to both local and remote files as well as local file & folder access.

And with alerting & web-based reporting built-in as standard, Sentry-go will automate the monitoring whilst keeping you in the loop when needed.

Key monitoring features

Check that Windows services are running. The monitor can inform you, or restart them automatically as needed
