future version of PolyMon

Is PolyMonRT the future version of Polymon?

I see a new graphic layout and the tool is thin so I was thinking that in future you could include a sort of plug-in system to handle results from probing and save or send the data.

Not really. It was meant as a separate product more for real time monitoring. Also it was meant to eliminate any database dependency.

Thyere are some ideas however that will probably flow between the two. In particular the layout ideas of PolyMonRT for dashboards is nuch more in line with how PolyMon will evolve.

You are right that PolyMonRT is pretty thin right now with only PerfMon monitoring support. I will be porting over other monitor types from PolyMon to PolyMonRT.

First one will be PowerShell as this provides very versatile monitoring - downside is that user has to know how to write PowerShell scripts.
