Introducing CheckCentral

We're very excited to introduce CheckCentral, an incredible new way to manage all of your email alerts & notifications! As system administrators, we know the pain of having to wade through a pile of notification emails every day. Trying to set up some sort of system to deal with them within your inbox is a time-consuming and frustrating experience. Worst of all, there's no good way to deal with notification emails that, for whatever reason, never arrive at all. Perhaps a scheduled task on a server doesn't fire properly, and your backup application never starts to backup. That's certainly something you'd like to be made aware of! To handle that sort of scenario, CheckCentral brings intelligence to email notification management. CheckCentral will know what notifications to expect & when to expect them based on rules you set up. For more information, please see our introduction to CheckCentral!

Working With DisplayFusion Remote

November 13, 2014

DisplayFusion Remote is a mobile application that allows you to run DisplayFusion Functions on your computer, right from the mobile app! DisplayFusion Remote is available on a variety of platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry. You can do things like load the next wallpaper image, start the screen saver, and much much more!

Setting Up DisplayFusion Remote

  1. Install DisplayFusion 7.1 or higher on your Windows PC.
  2. Open the DisplayFusion Settings and select the Remote Control tab.
  3. Enable the "Enable DisplayFusion Remote Control," and "Allow security code request popups" options.
  4. Install the DisplayFusion Remote app on your mobile device.
  5. Launch the DisplayFusion Remote app and tap the "Request Code" button next to your computer name. If your computer isn't automatically found, you can try adding it manually by IP address.
  6. Enter the Security Code that is displayed on your computer's screen and tap OK.
  7. You should now see a list of all Functions in DisplayFusion.
  8. Expand any category and tap a Function name to run it on your computer.

Adding a Computer Manually

  1. On your computer, open the Windows Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center.
  2. Click the "Change adapter settings" link on the left side.
  3. Right-click your network adapter and choose "Status."
  4. Click the "Details" button and note the IPv4 Address.
  5. Open the DisplayFusion Remote app on your mobile device and tap the + icon.
  6. Enter the IP address from step 4 above and tap OK.
  7. If you're still unable to connect by manually entering the IP address, proceed to the troubleshooting section.

Troubleshooting Connection Issues

If the DisplayFusion Remote app isn't able to automatically find your computer, and you can't connect manually by entering the IP address, there are a couple of things you can check:

  1. Double-check that you've enabled the Remote Control feature in the DisplayFusion Settings.
  2. Make sure that DisplayFusion.exe is allowed through your firewall, or if you prefer to only open the specific port, make sure that TCP port 21452 is open.
  3. As always, if you still run into trouble, feel free to contact us.

Welcome to CheckCentral!

October 6, 2014

We're very excited to introduce CheckCentral, an incredible new way to manage all of your email alerts & notifications! As system administrators, we know the pain of having to wade through a pile of notification emails every day. Trying to set up some sort of system to deal with them within your inbox is a time-consuming and frustrating experience. Worst of all, there's no good way to deal with notification emails that, for whatever reason, never arrive at all. Perhaps a scheduled task on a server doesn't fire properly, and your backup application never starts to backup. That's certainly something you'd like to be made aware of!

To handle that sort of scenario, CheckCentral brings intelligence to email notification management. CheckCentral will know what notifications to expect & when to expect them based on rules you set up. In CheckCentral, these rules are called checks, and these checks are all displayed on your CheckCentral dashboard.

The CheckCentral Dashboard

Using your dashboard, you'll be able to know the status of all your checks immediately. If you'd like to see the dashboard in action, check out our live demo!

How It Works

A common use for CheckCentral is to monitor regular backup jobs. For example, let's say you're using Veeam to backup some virtual machines on a nightly basis. When setting up your check, CheckCentral will display a check-specific email address to use. Simply configure Veaam to send job reports to that email address. In this example, the e-mail address is democorp+veeam@mycheckcentral.cc, so we'll use that as the "To:" address in the Veeam e-mail options.

Veeam Email Configuration
Veeam Email Configuration

Back in CheckCentral, you'll tell CheckCentral how often to expect an email for this check, and how long it should wait for that email before marking the check as failed. In this example, the check email should be arriving every day, and if it hasn't arrived within 6 hours of when it was supposed to (24 hours after the last email arrived) we'll mark the check as failed.

CheckCentral Schedule Configuration
CheckCentral Schedule Configuration

Lastly, we tell CheckCentral how it should determine whether the check has succeeded, failed or should be set to warning. In this example, Veeam puts the status of the backup job right in the subject line, so our rules will look something like this:

CheckCentral Rule Configuration
CheckCentral Rule Configuration

And that's it! CheckCentral now knows to expect an email from Veeam every day, and will only notify you if something requires your attention.

Get Notified

CheckCentral can notify you in a number of ways, including push notifications via our mobile application, text messages and regular old email. In addition, a daily digest email can be sent every day that shows you the current status of your organization. Mobile apps are available for all major platforms, including iOS (via the App Store), Android (via Google Play), Windows Phone (via Windows Store), and Blackberry (via Blackberry World). A complete list of mobile apps is available on our Apps page.

The CheckCentral Mobile App

Team Support

With the Enterprise Edition, you can share your dashboard with your whole team. Each user can set their own notification preferences as well, so only those who need to be notified about specific systems will receive the notifications.

Supports Nearly Everything

CheckCentral works with any application that supports sending email notifications, which turns out to be nearly everything. This includes (but is not limited to):

  • Veeam Backup & Replication
  • Altaro Hyper-V Backup
  • Unitrends Enterprise Backup
  • Acronis Backup
  • Symantec Backup Exec
  • NetXMS
  • PRTG Network Monitor
  • Dell iDRAC
  • Dell OpenManage
  • VMware vCenter
  • ...and more!

Getting Started

To get started with CheckCentral, head over to our signup page, available here. New accounts start with a 14-day trial of our Pro or Enterprise editions so you can explore all of the features that CheckCentral has available. After the trial ends, you can either switch to our free version or subscribe to Pro or Enterprise. Information on our different subscriptions are available on the Subscription page.
