One of the factors that indicate reliability in the cyberspace is consistency, which is indicated by the uptime of a website. Errors or hurdles in accessing a website cause losses
for the website owners, while causing nuisance for the visitors. This requires continuous monitoring of your websites to be prepared for the worst. Monitoring multiple websites using multiple tools is
expensive and tedious, but StatusCake
extends your concern to unlimited websites with technical tests, uptime widget, and emergency alerts to your Twitter, Skype, Email accounts. In cases where a dead server can be restarted using a script or an alternative server when the website is down, the built-in Ping Status URL feature
triggers the relevant areas to activate the website, automatically.
Whether spying on someone is good or bad, is probably a relative concept. For instance, while it may be immoral spying on someone for stealing their identity, it can certainly be helpful to keep an eye on your kids’ computer activities, as all the explicit and violent content available on the internet can easily manipulate their fresh minds. If you were looking for an application that could help you monitor your children’s computer usage, then look no further than Spyrix Free Keylogger
. This small tool is designed to log every activity, such as keystrokes, passwords, websites visited, emails, chats etc
, at regular intervals. It automatically captures screenshots of all the activities, like applications used, under its installation directory for the visual evidence of any malicious activity. This tool is also quite useful for monitoring employees' computer usage patterns, as there’s nothing worse than having them wasting their time surfing YouTube.
While some apps are meant provide app recommendations based on user interest and preferences, others suggest apps according to the user-specified locations. Merging the concept of most of the aforementioned apps into one comprehensive package is Ericsson Apps
by Ericsson Mobile Application Lab. Using the app, you can trace usage/popularity of various apps in your vicinity, as well as all over the world via a map. The app has the capacity to learn about all the apps installed on your device, and can present you with an overall statistical summary of app usage by their respective genre. Not only does it maintain a detailed chronological log of all the installed, used, or just the viewed apps, it can also offer you with a graphical representation of each individual app that is being used all over the world on a daily, as well as weekly, basis. That’s not all; the app also sports an option-packed recommendations segment from where you can find some very handy apps for your Android. Recommendations offered by Ericsson Apps are carved out according to the user’s own personal tastes and preferences. And did we forget to mention that the app itself sports a neatly designed, easy-on-the-eyes Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-style UI to present all the features and information? Certainly not! There’s plenty more that Ericsson Apps has to offer.
application allows adding upto 50 websites for monitoring uptime status and provides free SMS alerts, system uptime reports, periodic website screenshots, and website status monitoring from two separate locations (US and EU) to help you identify issues in a more robust manner. For example, if your website appears to be down in one country, then this could be a problem associated with regional internet connectivity (such as a marine cable break), whereas, monitoring it from a separate location can help you identify if your website’s server is down or if the problem is unrelated to your hosting server. Such advanced options make tagBeep more efficient and feature rich than the formerly reviewed WUMP

If you don’t have your Windows account password protected then there is a chance that everyone will use the computer without your permission. If you want to keep a tab on when somebody logged in and logged out of the computer, then MLL
will come handy. Otherwise you can always create an activity monitoring software yourself
to monitor all activities happening on the computer while you were away.
Even through we have covered previous network bandwidth monitoring tools here
, we believe iTraffic Monitor
is a real winner since it utilizes WinPcap
(Advanced Network Filtering capability). If enabled during installation, you will be able to filter out local LAN traffic and certain IPs. A feature that lacks in all freeware network monitoring tools for Windows.

Editor’s Notes: Sometimes it is better not to pay for a software. We at AddictiveTips do our best to find out ways to solve a problem for free without having to pay for a commercial software. One tool alone cannot quite accomplish a task, this is why we are going to use multiple tools to create our very own Computer Activity Monitoring Software. This method can be followed by almost everyone, since it does not require even a single line of code to be written. ;)
