Monitoring the environment can be broadly categorized as:

Active Server and Service Availability Monitoring
Neverfail monitors the availability of a server by sending continuous heartbeat signals via the Neverfail Channel to the other server in the pair. The “Yes I am alive” response ensures that not only is the other server powered-up, but also that it is available if needed. The heartbeat signal interval is configurable from the Neverfail Management Client.
Application and Performance Monitoring
Neverfail for Good Mobile Messaging relies on the 'System' plug-in for monitoring general system performance. The Neverfail System Plug-in performs this operation by checking select WMI counters at predetermined intervals to ensure that results of the check are within defined parameters. Neverfail System Plug-in uses 'Rules' to take action should a check reveal results outside of the defined parameters.
Rules - This plug-in does not have 'Rules' associated with it .
Tasks - There are no configurable 'Tasks' associated with this plug-in although custom User defined 'Tasks' can be defined.
