Hi guys.

English is not my native language, so could you help me with the correct name of my program?
The program is not for home use. The program name is looks like "Network usage monitor" and it generates reports and alerts. But I suspect that the word "monitor" has a different meaning.
On download.com very few programs with a name that contains the word "monitor".
Maybe the best variant is something from the bellow words?
controller, watcher, inspector, auditor, checker, examiner
Could you help please?

What do you mean,

 

But I suspect that the word "monitor" has a different meaning.

 

 

I don't understand exactly what you're asking.  Every place I worked that had a network had software on it that could see everything each workstation did or was doing.  That doesn't mean the company was spying on employees, although they could if they wanted to.  After all, they're paying people to work, not play on Facebook.  Nothing illegal about doing it - their network, their rules.

In this instance, yes.  Some definitions of "monitor" as a verb:
 
 
- to observe, record, or detect (an operation or condition) with instruments that have no effect upon the operation or condition.
 
- to oversee, supervise, or regulate: to monitor the administering of a test.
 
- to watch closely for purposes of control, surveillance, etc.; keep track of; check continually: to monitor one's eating habits.
