Remote monitoring reaches the 1700 OK checks mile stone

We are now checking over 1800 services and over 1700 are responding OK!

This is great news for the system which was initially tested up to 1000 services, we then tested 5000 services and it has been fine :)

The hard disk check had a few updates and that is now in final production.

Remote monitoring has become the one thing we rely on to ensure high available to ICT inside of Primary Schools and has proved itself invaluable time and time again.

Please try to remember it is a free service available to all UK schools, we have no adds or nasty spam so please consider one of Primary Technologys other services such as School Email

Remote monitoring now tests Antivirus for On Access protection

Your remote monitoring software now attempts to download an EICAR virus, even if your firewall will stop this virus we download another file that replaces a string to become a virus.  

This EICAR virus is NOT harmful.  It is for our systems so we can test to see if your anti virus software is working.

For more information please see

For engineer purpose the test script is available in C:\Program Files\Montitech\NC_Net\script\test_antivirus.vbs

Remote Monitoring now includes support for CMIS and SIMS – October 2008

The Primary Technology Remote Monitoring service now supports SIMs and CMIS. SIMS and CMIS are the 2 most commonly used MIS’. It is important that we monitor the service state and database version of these products. This information allows the schools to ensure their MIS is completely up to date and enables Primary Technology engineers to quickly see a snapshot status of their schools most critical service.
