Great product. Easy to use. Doesn't need a fulltime technician to run it. After ditching Microsoft's scom because of its complexity. We were looking for a easy to use software with support for basic functions we wanted to monitor. Server Manager does tick all The boxes for us. Easy to use ready templates for all basic monitoring needs. Customizable for more advanced monitoring and logging.

What is Corner Bowl Windows Service Monitor?

Windows Service Status Monitor

Corner Bowl includes a Windows Service Status Monitor enabling you to verify the current status of a service, restart crashed services, restart services at an interval, such as nightly, and stop services that should not be running. The Status Monitor even enables you to pass command-line arguments when starting or restarting services.

Windows Service Resource Monitor

Corner Bowl includes a Windows Service Resource Monitor enabling you to monitor the resources a service consumes. For example, trigger an email notification or even restart a service when it consumes too much CPU utilization, memory, threads, handles and much more. All of the properties found in the WMI Win32_Process class can be monitored along with CPU Utilization.

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.

Licensing

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.
