Using the ControlUp Logon Simulator gives you the ability to have proactive notifications when applications become unavailable to your users. Each run by the simulator generates an event giving you the results of that run. This allows you to create an event based task to execute an action, or use the ControlUp Realtime Console to perform a trigger on the event. We’ll walk through downloading, installing and configuring the ControlUp Logon Simulator.
- A user without Administrator privileges is required to run the simulator. This can be a local account or a domain account.
- A user account with access to the application you want to monitor.
- .NetFramework 4.6.1 or newer installed.
