About Passive Monitor Device Properties

Some elements on a network may not provide a clear up or down status when queried. For example, a message may get logged to the system's Event log by another application (such as an antivirus application alerting when a virus is found). Because these messages/events can occur at any time, a Passive Monitor Listener listens for them, and notifies WhatsUp Gold when they occur.
