The Options/General tab provides access to setup second check option, ping size, response times, column widths, session engines and run options. The following options appear on this tab:
Run sessions by: This application. When this option is selected, sMonitor uses the built-in session engine. It is selected by default.
Run sessions by: NT service. When this option is selected, sMonitor launches the stand-alone session engine as NT service. This option is not available under Windows 98 and Windows ME.
Application: Run at startup. If this option is checked, sMonitor is launched when Windows starts. If you have installed sMonitor with the option "Install sMonitor for the current user only", sMonitor runs at startup when you logon with the same user name. It is off by default.
