more detail about server activity and history.

of the day or day of the week.
In addition, a variety of minor errors have been corrected, the user
interface has been updated, menus have been revised to be easier to
navigate, a new “audible alert” notification type has been added, and
other usability improvements have been made.

designed for administrators with a single server, to “PageSentry ISP”,
which is capable of monitoring an entire Internet server farm ($595).
