10 About SpectorSoft Server Manager About SpectorSoft Server Manager SpectorSoft Server Manager is an enterprise-wide systems and application monitoring software package enabling both small business and large enterprise System Administrators to proactively manage their networks and fulfill compliance requirements. Consolidates, archives and monitors Windows Event Logs, Syslogs, and Text Log files. Includes Security Event Log Reports such as: Object Access Auditing Failed Logon Attempts Successful Logons Logon Sessions Account Management Account Lockout New Accounts Monitors resources such as: Disk space CPU load over time Memory load over time Monitors and controls applications and services such as: Websites servers Databases Windows Services and Processes Monitors Internet connectivity and throughput. Includes extensive disk and directory monitoring and analysis functions and reports. Monitors changes to the Windows Registry. Monitors SSL and digital certificate expiration and validity. How does Server Manager work? Server Manager... Installs to a single computer/server then remotely manages computers, devices, and hosts. Is configured though a client user interface which can be installed to any Windows computer at any location. Fires alerts and notifications through , SMS, remote desktop popups, SNMP traps and more. Automatically publishes systems and network status to your web server for remote access via your iphone or Android. Generates reports to HTML, PDF, text and CSV SpectorSoft Corporation.

11 SpectorSoft Server Manager Help Client Server Architecture Server Manager is implemented using client/server architecture. The server, referred to as the Server Manager Service, runs as a Windows service and is responsible for all Monitor and Report execution. The client application, referred to as the Management Console, runs on any supported Windows platform and is responsible for all configuration and management. The tray icon, also a client application, is responsible for desktop notifications (e.g. message box and sound alerts). You can install the console and tray icon on as many computers as necessary. The client/server interface is implemented using TCP port 6766 by default. The TCP interface authenticates all incoming connections using Windows authentication. Access will only be granted if the user accessing the service belongs to the Administrator group. For secure environments, the TCP interface can be configured to encrypt all packets using private keys. For more information see Management Server Settings. To configure the console or tray icon to connect to a remote service installation, see Service Connections. Server Manager is deployed through a single installer that always installs the service, console and tray icon. If you only plan to use the console and/or tray icon, you can disable the SpectorSoft Server Manager service via the Windows Service Control Manager.

12 System Requirements System Requirements Supported Operating Systems Windows Server 2012, 2008 R2, 2008, or 2003 Windows 8, 7, Vista, or XP Supported CPUs (64-Bit / 32-Bit) Server Manager is offered in both 64-bit and 32-bit Windows installers. Be sure to install the 64-bit installer when targeting 64-bit hardware as the 64-bit installer includes 64-bit binaries. Memory 4 GBs of available memory, 8 GBs suggested for large networks. Microsoft.NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 The installation detects if the.net Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 is already installed. If not, the framework is automatically downloaded from Microsoft and then installed. Please note the framework may take a significant amount of time to install. Please be patient while the installation completes. Domain Administrator Account To access and manage remote resources Server Manager requires domain administrator credentials. If offdomain, local administrator credentials. The first time the application is run, you will be prompted to assign administrator credentials to the service. Windows Management Instrumentation (client and server) Many functions within Server Manager utilize Microsoft's Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) API (e.g. Event Log management, CPU, memory, services, processes, Access Permissions Reports). Optional Components Microsoft's SNMP Service - SNMP traps are exposed through Microsoft's SNMP Service SpectorSoft Corporation.

14 Licensing and Registration Licensing and Registration Server Manager is licensed by the number of nodes being monitored. A node is defined as a unique IP address and/or hostname that is monitored, scanned, or otherwise managed by the Software. You can apply as many Templates (e.g. CPU, memory, disk space, web content, etc.) to each node as necessary. A simple licensing sample: If monitoring a single physical server called mycompany that hosts a web server (www.mycompany.com) and mail server (mail.mycompany.com), 3 nodes within your license will be required for each of the 3 addressable names: mycompany (e.g. Ping monitor) (e.g. HTTP monitor) mail.mycompany.com (e.g. SMTP monitor) If each of the 3 addressable names are on the same IP address, using the IP address instead of the addressable names will reduce the required hosts from 3 to 1. To register your license: 1. After purchasing a license from SpectorSoft, you will receive a serial number via If not already installed on the target server, install, then open the Management Console SpectorSoft Corporation.

18 Application Program Interface Application Program Interface Server Manager enables users to write custom applications to view monitor history data. For example, a user could create an application that shows ping response times or disk utilization over a period of time. Consumption of history data can obtained when saving history to SQL Server, MySQL or Oracle. At this time there is no API to access file system based history. Server Manager saves each monitor's history to a unique table. The table name for each monitor uses the following format: M[HOST_ID]_[TEMPLATE_ID] Host ID The internal object ID. Template ID The internal object ID. For example: H100_200 To view a Host ID: 1. From the Object Explorer, navigate to the target computer, device or host. 2. Right-click and select Host Properties.

32 Conserve Disk Space Conserve Disk Space When saving Event Logs to the Log Repository and using the File System format, new entries are downloaded and saved to a temporary file. Once the download is complete, the previously downloaded entries are appended to the temporary file. If saving data for a long period of time or if a server is generating large Event Logs over a short period of time, such as the Security Event Logs for example, these temporary files may get large (around 20 GB). To optimize Server Manager to conserve disk space: From the Database Settings properties page, configure Server Manager to use SQL Server. Use Range Schedules to evenly distribute Event Log downloads over time. The end result is a process that regularly downloads Event Logs rather than a process that fires off 90 downloads all at once. The default Event Log Consolidation Template uses an Hourly Range Schedule that automatically distributes Event Log downloads every hour. Limit the log retention policy to a manageable period. For example, save entries for 15 days in the Primary Log Repository and another 45 days in the Archive Log Repository for a total of 60 days. Every month at the end of the month make a database backup of the Archive Log Repository and save it to your organization's archives. When using an Event Log Consolidation and Monitoring Template, limit Post Consolidation Filter use. Instead, use Reports to access data on a daily basis rather than using post consolidation filters, which can result in frequent s.

34 Monitor a Rolling Text Log File (IIS) Monitor a Rolling Text Log File (IIS) Many applications such as Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, log to a daily log file. Each day the application creates a new file that contains the date within the name, for example ex log or 2010 June 25th. This format is simple to implement and enables system administrators to easily archive log files. This tutorial shows you how to monitor rolling text log files by configuring Server Manager to monitor IIS logs. After verifying the requirements, check the location the log files reside on the IIS server, then configure the Text Log Consolidation Template in Server Manager.

From the Start menu select Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. 3. From the left pane, select the target web site. 4. From the right pane, double-click Logging. 5. The log file path is listed within the Directory text box. By default the path is: %SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\LogFiles, which expands to: c:\inetpub\logs\logfiles. IIS writes the log files to a sub-directory called: W3SVC1 This is the directory you want to monitor. Now that you have the location, you need to configure Server Manager to monitor the directory. To configure the Text Log Consolidation Template: 1. Select File > New > Template. The Select Template Type dialog displays. 2. From the menu tree, expand Log Management > Text Log Management. 3. Double-click Text Log Consolidation. The Template Properties dialog displays. 4. From the General tab, set the Name to IIS Log Monitor. Use the default settings. 5. Select the Logs tab. 6. From the Servers/Workstations drop-down, select the server where IIS is installed. 7. From the Available Files tree, select the directory where the log files are located. The path displays in the text box below. 8. From the text box, append: \u_ex>yymmdd>.log SpectorSoft Corporation.

35 SpectorSoft Server Manager Help 9. Click. The software checks the target directory for the existence of a file that matches the current date. If a file is not found, verify IIS is running, a daily log file exists and the mask has been entered correctly. If found, a prompt displays listing the discovered file: SpectorSoft Corporation 33

36 Monitor a Rolling Text Log File (IIS) 10. When prompted to add the mask, click Yes. The mask is added to the Assigned Files list. 11. Select the Function tab. 12. Use the Logical Name tab to specify a logical name which to consolidate all discovered log files. If you do not specify a Logical Name, each discovered file is saved to a unique database table. Automated Text Log Reports and Log Repository Retention Policy Templates require masked directory monitors to consolidate to a logical name. 13. Check Use logical filename then type: u_ex.log 14. Use the Entry Pattern tab to define how Server Manager decyphers unique log entries. Since IIS log entries are limited to a single line, leave the Enable entry pattern recognition option disabled. 15. Use the Read Method tab to define how each file is read the first time the file is discovered or updated. Use the default option Beginning of file. This read method will read all current entries in a newly discovered/monitored files, then consecutively read from the last known position. 16. Use the Consolidation, Filters and Actions tab to apply a consolidation filter, Log Repository Retention Policy Template and post consolidation Filters and Actions (e.g. to trigger an alert when a specific entry is read). Create a filter that passes all "HTTP GET" requests and assign an action. a) Click Add. The Assign Filter and Action dialog displays. b) Click.
