Developer: KS-Soft
File type: Backup File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hm. Files with the file extension .hm can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hm files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

The HM file extension is a data file format associated to HostMonitor, a server monitoring tool. The HM file extension and HostMonitor were developed by KS-Soft. These files are backup copies of TestList files created by HostMonitor. TestList files contain monitored tasks in HML format and backups are saved, in case of file corruption or deletion. Files in the HM file format contain list of servers and monitoring tasks. The software is used to monitor the availability and performance of networks.

KS-Soft HostMonitor

KS Soft Host Monitor is an effective tool for network administrators. It is a network monitoring software that can be used to help in making network administration tasks much simpler. It has the capacity to check the Web, network files and network traffic. What makes it more interesting is that it has the capability to alert the administrator ahead of time about a potential or possible network error, so that it could be prevented before the problem becomes worse. This can be done through a system where a notification by email will be sent to the administrator in case of failed services. KS Soft Host Monitor includes the following features: Log Analyzer; HML Management Web Service; RMA Management Web Service; MIB Browser; and WMI Explorer among others. KS Soft Host Monitor are mainly used for logging relevant data into a database system that can be quickly and easily reviewed by system administrators. These pieces of data are then used to improve network security and data transmission efficiency between computers and devices that are connected to the network.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hm files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .hm. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
