RSP is designed to be a powerful (yet easy to use) server monitoring and performance analysis tool, RSP is invaluable to a system administrator. Deploy the software across the enterprise to all of your servers (Linux, Windows, Solaris, MacOS X, and more) to immediately get in-depth reports on your organization's IT server health.

Monitoring the traffic to a website, the users logged into a computer system, or the availability of a network are all standard features of RSP. Using thresholds, computer professionals can set alarms for trouble situations (say a lack of disk space or excess CPU load) making RSP an excellent pro-active troubleshooting tool. Using RSP, you can prevent downtime instead of just reacting to it.

Analyzing past performance of critical computer infrastructure to determine where organization resources should be devoted is also an RSP strong point. Determine at which times are your peak hours, which resources are in most demand, and gain insights about improving your organization's IT infrastructure. RSP can lower the costs of your IT investments by helping you to focus on areas that need most improvement.

Designed to grow as your business grows, RSP will always be there for you. Adding drop-in modules to monitor and analyze whole new aspects of a computer system is a trivial process. Even create your own modules in many programming and scripting languages to monitor any discrete data you may have (say a company-proprietary search engine's activity levels).

Here are some key features of "RSP":

Versions are ready for all versions of Windows (including Server 2003), MacOS X, Linux, and Solaris and future versions may support other operating systems and hardware.

Easily Deployed

Deploying RSP across the enterprise is a very simple process - usually requiring only a few minutes per system.

Security Conscious

A firewall-compatible proxy application is included (which allows monitors to connect through a firewall via a single port). Also, host-based address blocking features ensure only the clients allowed access to your system get through.


Protect your investment by ensuring future compatibility with new technologies and standards: RSP allows custom modules to be developed to monitor just about anything.


Incorporate the RSP infrastructure into your own applications. Now you can develop your own custom monitoring and analysis packages that work directly with the RSP infrastructure.


RSP is an affordable, feature-rich and cost-effective method for server monitoring and analysis

Simple Licensing Structure

Reduces complexity and cost of ensuring license compliance.

Extensive Documentation

RSP has been extensively documented, both online and in print.

Agent-Based Monitoring

Deploying agents allows IT professionals to collect and analyze data not otherwise available. Get to the root cause of your server crashes quickly and easily. Further, resources required by the agent are minimal in all respects.

Configurable Thresholds

Customizable thresholds let you determine what is an unacceptable state for your servers to be in.


Be alerted as soon as a problem develops on your mission-critical servers via e-mail. Also, run a customize script upon alert detection.

Web & Desktop Interfaces

Keep an eye on your enterprise from a web browser or from your desktop 24 hours a day. Deploying monitors couldn't be easier.

ophisticated Analysis Tools

RSP includes a sophisticated analysis tool that allows users to graph and analyze collected data. Determine the root cause of system crashes, usage trends and other information quickly and easily.

Performance Enhancement

Using the RSP analysis features, you can identify what resources where to focus efforts to improve performance, thus maximizing your firm's investment.

Specialized Database Tool

Deploy the RSP-specific database (History Listener) to store collected system data. Using a compression scheme, the History Listener allows you to save years worth of data within a reasonable amount of storage space.

What's New in This Release:
This release adds a hardware management feature that makes capacity planning, trending and analysis, and other common IT tasks easier.
RSP is now able to collect detailed hardware information from your servers to help you correlate realtime performance data with your underlying hardware.
