Without the tools to effectively aggregate and analyze changes to the resources and traffic within those logs, your corporate network is exposed to potential downtime and threats.

Reduce Downtime

Unplanned outages can be catastrophic at worst, and are productivity sapping annoyances at best. Veriato server management software monitors for availability and performance so you can act - instead of react.

Increase Productivity

Having server management software that automatically responds to changes in your IT environment, including network resources, frees you up to work on more important things, without killing your budget.

Improve Security

Enhance security and increase network protection by monitoring, detecting and analyzing security incidents through security event log data analysis. Create alerts and reports about security-related event logs or Syslog entries.

Application Monitoring

As your business grows, the number of critical applications delivering IT services to your end users grows. Ensuring peak application performance requires vigilant monitoring of the application stack, and the servers running those applications. You can hire a larger IT staff for this, or use the powerful Application Monitoring in Veriato's Server Manager.

Resource Monitoring

Monitor Windows Servers or Workstations for excessive or extended CPU load and memory consumption. Server Manager stores the history for any period of time enabling you to view historical load and consumption data, empowering you to identify patterns of concern. The data can be saved to SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle or, if no database is available, our own fast binary format.

Event & Security Log Management

View and report on event log data in the most convenient and intuitive way possible. Isolate pertinent log entries by merging multiple logs into a single view, hiding duplicate entries and filtering the results. Then, easily export, print or email the results for clear and concise event log analysis. Reporting and analysis for regulatory compliance is simple with powerful reporting and alert features.

Disk & Directory Monitoring

Effective utilization of resources is key in every department within an organization. Ensuring proper management of disk space is critical to your business continuity plan. The Disk & Directory monitoring capability in Veriato Server Manager provides one convenient place to monitor all of your network storage and directory resources so you know what is going on and can mitigate potential issues.

Alerts, Actions, and Reporting

Server Manager offers robust automation, alerting and reporting to address server and resource issues while freeing your IT resources to tackle value-added tasks. Create intelligent reactions to events, trigger alerts when thresholds are passed, and create informative reports about the health and activity of your server network.

“I love this software. It works great. I looked at a lot of competing product including the various free options (looked at over 10 alternatives). They all had a high price tag and/or didn't include all the features we needed. Server Manager has the features for a good price. What I loved about Server Manager was that it did it ALL in one easy to understand place

Frequently Asked Questions

I want to monitor three Event Logs, Disk Space, CPU, Memory and two Services on one of my Windows servers with Server Manager. How many licenses will that require?

The Windows server itself would be considered to be a single node, whether you monitor one thing on that Windows server or one hundred things.

I bought a Server Manager license for X nodes. How many separate installations of the software can I have?

You may install Server Manager as many times as you’d like as long as the total number of nodes managed across all of the installations does not exceed the number you are licensed for.

If I install the Server Manager console on my computer, does that use one of my licenses?

Licenses are only used for computers, devices, or hosts that have a Monitor assigned to them. If you are monitoring something on your computer it will use a license. You may install as many management consoles as you’d like.

I assigned a monitor to a device I no longer wish to monitor. What should I do?

Simply un-assign all Monitors from it and that license will free up automatically and you can use it to monitor another device.

Can I store my log data in Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition?

You may use SQL Server Express Edition, but it not recommended. The reason is because SQL Server Express Edition has a limit on the maximum size that a database can be. Once this limit is reached, no additional data will be able to be committed to the database, resulting in errors and a potential for loss of data.

Can I run Server Manager on a computer that is not connected to the Internet?

Yes. Under normal circumstances, an Internet connection is only required for licensing and to check for updates. However, if no Internet connection is available on the computer where the software is installed, you may visit from another computer to create a license file for your installation or contact Technical Support and they can assist you in creating a license file.

System Requirements

Supported Operating Systems

  • Windows Server 2012, and 2008
  • Windows 8, Windows 7, and Vista
  • Unix/Linux Flavors (supports remote management only: receives syslog messages and monitors log files and disk space via Samba)

Supported CPUs

  • Runs natively on both 64-Bit and 32-Bit computers. We offer both a 64-Bit and a 32-Bit installation of Server Manager.


  • 2-8 GBs of available memory. 4 GBs minimum when monitoring Windows Security Event Logs on large networks or heavily loaded servers.

.NET Framework 4.0

  • The installation detects if .NET Framework 4.0 is already installed. If not, the framework is automatically downloaded from Microsoft and then installed. Please note the framework may take a significant amount of time to install. Please be patient while the installation completes.

Domain Administrator Account

  • To access remote resources both the logged in user and the Windows Service must have domain administrator rights. The first time the application is run, you will be prompted to assign domain administrator credentials to the service.

Windows Management Instrumentation (client and server)

  • Functions such as Event Log consolidation/archiving, CPU, memory, Windows Service and process monitoring use Microsoft's Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) API. WMI is preinstalled on all supported operating systems.
