This profile monitors a POP3 server on a Windows server using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). Nagios Remote Plugin Executor (NRPE) is used by the Nagios server to communicate with the WMI proxy server. This proxy server queries the monitored Windows server for measurements and status using WMI.
Additionally, you may want to refer to the WMI documentation. This project consists of a collection of script monitors (.vbs for starters) that use the Microsoft .Net Framework and WMI to retrieve performance data from remote Windows hosts without the need for agents on the remote hosts.

GroundWork Monitor includes many monitoring profiles for a variety of devices, systems and applications. Profiles already imported on a new GroundWork installation include Service Ping, SNMP Network, and SSH UNIX. The GroundWork Monitor Configuration tool is used to import updated Profiles and Profiles that require additional setup; the Profile XML file and its companion Performance Configuration definition file. Services can also be imported in addition to Service Profiles in the Profile Importer. The import process is documented under GROUNDWORK PROFILES > How to import profiles.
This section contains detail settings used by this Profile. These parameters can be altered with the Configuration tool.
Command parameters are in the Configuration Services section with the following names and default values.
The following parameters are used to generate performance charts. These parameters are set using the Configuration>Performance tool in GroundWork Monitor.
The steps are:
