Easy to use. The reports of the audits are very straight to the point. The software unlike SPLUNK is extremely easy to setup and manage, which cuts time down while running audits. We love the software, if there were cons we would not have considered the software.

Powerful Hierarchical Based Network, Server and Application Monitoring Software for Less!

Internet Server Monitor is a network server monitoring tool enabling System Administrators to monitor servers and the network applications they host for failures, recoveries and load. Minimize downtime by configuring the software to notify your on-call system administrator when servers go down, server applications fail or system performance degrades.

What does Corner Bowl Internet Server Monitor include?


Internet Server Monitor not only checks the availability of server applications but in most cases includes functionality to test the application performance. For example, an HTTP or Web monitor can be created to test the availability of the server and verify the returned URL or document contains the desired content.

Hierarchical Monitoring

System administrators can setup monitoring hierarchy to shut down, start, or throttle up backup system monitoring when a primary server fails. For example, when a ping monitor fails on a primary server the system can shut down the dependent memory and CPU monitors while also throttling up ping, memory and CPU monitors on your backup server.

Failure Rate

Monitors such as the Ping Monitor regularly timeout. Internet Server Monitor provides you with the tools to define failure rates. For example, when pinging a server every second, you can configure the ping monitor to trigger only after 3 pings fail within 10 seconds.


To comply with regulatory agency requirements, Internet Server Monitor saves all monitor results to either SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle or to file. When saving to a database System Administrators can data mine historical data and create their own reports.

System Requirements

Supported Operating Systems
  • Windows Server 2019, 2016, 2012, 2008 R2
  • Windows 10, 8, 7 SP1
Supported Architecture - 64-Bit and 32-Bit

Internet Server Monitor can be installed on both 64-bit and 32-Bit Windows.


8 GBs of available memory, 16 GBs suggested when monitoring 100s of endpoints.

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8

The installation detects if the .Net Framework 4.8 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 Log Manager requires domain administrator credentials. If off-domain, then local administrator credentials. The first time the application is run, the onboarding wizard will prompt you to assign then necessary credentials to the service.

Windows Management Instrumentation (client and server)

Many functions within Corner Bowl Software utilize Microsoft's Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) API (e.g. Event Log management, CPU and memory monitoring). This software includes options to optimize WMI packet size and performance.


Internet Server Monitor (ISM) is a sub-component of both our software packages, Corner Bowl Server Manager and Corner Bowl Event Log Manager. To access ISM functionality either install Corner Bowl Server Manager or Corner Bowl Event Log Manager then apply either a purchased Server Manager or ISM license.

Corner Bowl Software is sold in node packs. Each unique IP address or hostname that is monitored, scanned or managed by the software is a node.

Corner Bowl Software can be installed on a single host or up to as many hosts as nodes purchased.

For example, a 100 node license would enable an IT professional to install the software on 3 servers with one installation monitoring 50 servers and the other two installations monitoring 25 workstations each for a total of 100 nodes.

After you purchase a license, you have the option through this website or your reseller to upgrade your existing license with more nodes.

Once you have purchased a license, a license key will be emailed to you. If you purchase through a reseller, a claim link will be emailed to you enabling you to retrieve your key from this website. Once you have your key you will register online through the software's management console. If you are installing this software on an Air-Gapped network, you will generate license key files through this website where you will also find detailed instructions on how to apply your Air-Gapped key files.
