Windows - Advanced Agentless Opspack

Microsoft Remote Procedure Call (RPC) greatly simplifies creating distributed client/server programs. It provides libraries that manage networking protocols and communications to reduce complexity so users can focus on developing applications rather than the details of the network.

Network Basic Input/Output System (NETBIOS) is a protocol that allows applications on different computers to communicate with each other over local area networks (LAN).

What You Can Monitor

This Opspack allows you to monitor the status of Microsoft RPC and NETBIOS through TCP checks on their relative ports.

Service Checks

Service Check Description
Microsoft RPC Checks RPC on TCP port 135
NETBIOS Checks NETBIOS on TCP port 139
