Never fear, our free Network Device Monitor is here to save the day. This free tool makes it easy to monitor the real-time performance and health of a single device on your network with a cool desktop dashboard that sends up a bat signal when your device is in trouble.
Regardless of whether you need to protect the performance of your core router, a critical Cisco ASA, or your favorite HP Procurve switch, Network Device Monitor is ready to leap into action. With this free network monitoring tool by your side, you can quickly and easily create a custom monitoring template for your chosen network device and then share it with your fellow IT geeks on thwack, SolarWinds online community.

There are hundreds of existing monitors to choose from, making it easy to get started.
But maybe you want to go even further with your superhero monitoring measures, and want to monitor a little-known OID to track statistics like temperature, fan speed, or battery status?
