Windows - Advanced Agentless Opspack
Microsoft Remote Procedure Call (RPC) greatly simplifies creating distributed client/server programs. It provides libraries that manage networking protocols and communications to reduce complexity so users can focus on developing applications rather than the details of the network.
Network Basic Input/Output System (NETBIOS) is a protocol that allows applications on different computers to communicate with each other over local area networks (LAN).
What You Can Monitor
This Opspack allows you to monitor the status of Microsoft RPC and NETBIOS through TCP checks on their relative ports.
Opsview's extensive Windows Monitoring solutions will provide your company with a single pane of glass to your Windows environment.
