user defined threshold to detect values which exceed thresholds,
change abruptly, increase or decrease unexpectedly or by more than a
Some uses of the add-in include testing Exchange mail queue sizes
for high watermark thresholds or abrupt increases in size of the
queue, drive space percentages, CPU utilization, and etc...
This add-in monitors local and remote computers performance data, so
you can centralize your alerting, charting, and graphing of values
onto the IPSentry machine.
Use of this add-in is generally utilized to test the following
aspects of performance data values.
Each of the above can be compared for both positive or inverse matches.
- The host being monitoring is accepting connections.
- The counter values are accessible.
The values are then compared against your filters which may include whether or not:
- Value is Equal To a specific value
- Value is Greater than a specified value
- Value is Less than a specified value
- Value has Changed
- Value has Increased
- Value has Decreased
- Value is Within a specified range
- Value has Increased by more than a specified value.
- Value has Decreased by more than a specified value.
- Value has Changed by more than a specified value.
If the returned value is out your specified threshold, the
configured alerts associated to this entry will be triggered.

Obviously, we could include just about every valuable counter we can
think of and market IPSentry has having hundreds upon hundreds of
