It would be nice to be able monitor assets to ensure they are up at all times, when they are no longer reachable send an alert.

As Lansweeper already knows and has a list of everything on the network it would be good to create alerting rules that when trigger let you know something is wrong.

Like Nagios

Lansweeper is not a real-time monitoring software, you should use another one.

You are correct but the limitation is that Lansweeper doesn't CURRENTLY provide real time monitoring however based on the wish list it may be something they consider for future development, Lansweeper hasn't been considered a Help Desk Ticketing system however in a new beta release coming soon'ish it will have that ability.

Given the fact that Lansweeper essentially knows all of your assets on the network it would in theory be a great place to go into individual assets and create alerts based on rules you set.

Example, for all servers alert me if the host is no longer responding etc...

To go back a step (but still allow the OP's request) it would be a handy addition to allow a deployment package to run from a specified computer and pass the asset data (that would normally be the deployment target) to the task. ie: instead of deploy a "test-if-online.exe" to the asset that you want to check is online, it would run on another computer such as the lansweeper server itself and then pass the asset data (perhaps using similar tokens like actions) for the task to use.

You could then use an asset group or report to list up the assets you want to monitor or perform some other remote task on the computer, not from it. The OP would then need to implement a script or program that does the required remote monitoring actions but I'm sure something would be posted to the deployment forum fairly quick if needed :o)

As a bonus, an option to email a specified or default emaill address "on failure" in deployments would also be very handy.

Being able to set another task host machine would be helpful to offload any performance hit a task such as remote monitoring might incur.

We already use Lansweeper to remote monitor some machines. We have a script that downloads a lansweeper report in CSV format and then runs the required remote monitoring tasks and alert process within the script - but Lansweeper is used as a the base data source.

I was looking for this functionality in lansweeper
I really though that I will be able to make action or send report which will be send only when server / service is down, disks became full etc . :(
Now I have to look for other solution :(

Now that 6.0 is fully released which i know centred around the helpdesk (Which we have used throughout Beta and will continue).

What are the plans going forward?

Is real-time monitoring on the cards?

Real-time monitoring is the only thing I'm missing and would love it to be under the same hood as our Network Asset / Helpdesk Solution and i'm sure many other would love this feature too.

Regards,
Jamie

We use Lansweeper for our asset management and would really like to be able to move our System's monitoring onto the same solution.

Is real-time monitoring something that you are planning to introduce in the future?

I'm looking to get some feedback from Lansweeper about this, just wondering if any consideration has been put into a Real Time monitoring addition?

Is this something you are considering to implement?

So 3 years have passed and it seems like this functionality is still not implemented despite the large amount of request for it. It's a bit sad I think since all the components and functionality are available to make this possible.

Very much a vote from me for this feature too..... a simple monitoring failure notification against a ping test would do for now.

After nearly 3 years im a little disappointed to have not had any official reply from Lansweeper on this given it's popularity.

I have emailed support specifically requesting a response to see what their intentions are regarding this.

Hopefully it's something they will implement.

As you know, Lansweeper is not a true monitoring software. The feature to start monitoring items has indeed been requested for a long time. Features on the customer wish list get development prioritization based on a combination of customer demand and difficulty to implement. While this feature has indeed been requested often, creating a monitoring module for Lansweeper would cost significant development resources and is not something we plan on adding in the near future.

As of right now you have the following options to monitor the status of assets and receive alerts about it:
  • You can create a custom report which shows assets where the Last tried is not equal to the Last seen and the Last Tried is in the past week,day or hour. This can be combined with a scheduled report alert. As soon as the report has content, the next time the report alert is triggered you will be notified. More information about alerts can be found here: https://www.lansweeper.c...ending-email-alerts.html

    To reduce the impact on your systems, you can configure how often Lansweeper scans Windows items. More information can be found here: https://www.lansweeper.c...fic-data-is-scanned.html

  • Alternatively, you can use event log alerts, which can be triggered on any scanned event for that computer. You can use one of the event log scanning targets to scan you assets often for new event log items.

I'm throwing my +1 in as well. Not sure which side is 'confirmed' as not cost-effective, but on the consumer side, I feel the option for a module and the willingness to pay for it if necessary would far out-weigh the cost-effectiveness of development.

Personally and professionally, it would be nice to 'keep it in the family' as far as functionality, without having to continuously rely on so many software titles to do different things:
• though we don't use it, the implementation of a Help Desk, instead of relying on different software
• the Enterprise options for deploying and maintaning LS scanning servers - instead of manipulating 3rd party
software to sync up information properly
• plus many more!

There have been too many "cost-effective" upgrades to LS to NOT implement a module

Hello,

Could you please post this report for "custom report which shows assets where the Last tried is not equal to the Last seen and the Last Tried is in the past week,day or hour"?

THank you.
