Questions and Answers to GMON
The Health Monitor wants a Customer-ID and a Password. What do I have to enter?
Question: The Health Monitor wants a Customer-ID and a Password. What do I have to enter?
Answer: You are in the Login dialogue of the Health Monitor. To display or change customer data, you need a certain Customer-ID and eventually a password, according to how the customer was created in the database (e.g. "demo1" without any password).
In the Professional Version with SQL database you can enter any existing Customer-ID with or without a password. This login dialogue was created for special information terminals in e.g. Fitness Center, where the customer by himself can work with his own data. Anyway, the "normal" way in the professional version uses the Customer Administration. Here you can create, change or delete customer data. The Health Monitor is here started by the function "Analysis" without the upper login dialogue.
In the Standard or Demo Version without SQL database there is no such Customer Administration. If you open the list box you can choose an existing Customer-ID or enter a new ID for a new customer. To create a new customer is not possible in the demo version.

Question: Does the GMON software also run on an Apple computer?
Answer: Our GMON software has been optimized for Windows operating systems from the very beginning and currently cannot be ported to macOS without insignificant effort.

The keyword is virtualization, where nowadays it has become possible to conveniently run another operating system virtually thanks to powerful hardware. You can find more information in our help file.

Question: Can I install the Health Monitor in a local network?
The Health Monitor (professional version) consists of three basically components:
The FireBird database server an the according database will be installed on the local PC during the default installation. The database server will be setup in the path C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_X and will run as a service of the operating system. You find the database file for customer and measurement data in C:\Program Files\MedServ\database\GMON3.GDB. You can change the path for this file in the setup of the Customer Administration, but it has to stay on the local disk. Network directories are not allowed for the database. Would you like to install the database on a network server for security reasons or for multi user access, the database server has to run there.
