ProTop Online Documentation

Welcome to the ProTop online documentation. Here you'll find plenty of information both on how to use ProTop and also how to interpret the cornucopia of data that is now at your fingertips.

What is ProTop?

ProTop is a free, real-time monitoring tool for OpenEdge environments. It installs in minutes, has a negligible disk footprint and will put more information at your fingertips than you ever knew existed.

You can optionally connect ProTop to one of our global web portals (see the Introduction and Prerequisite page to find the portal closest to you) in order to see how this data trends over time.

Additionally, ProTop is available as a commercial product, adding numerous value-added features such as monitoring and alerting to the free real-time monitor, and expanding both the breadth and depth of graphical trend data.
