Serial Port Monitor

Serial Port Monitor is a professional software solution that gives you a way to seamlessly monitor the activity of any serial port available in your system. The application is helpful in developing, testing and debugging COM port software and devices. It has an intuitive interface and is extremely easy to use.
Serial Port Monitor is fully compatible with Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit)

Filter captured data

COM Port Monitor offers the advanced filtering option. By setting up the monitoring filters you can track only the events you are interested in. This RS232 Sniffer lets you filter IOCTL and IRP requests. What’s especially convenient is that monitoring data can be shown in several viewing modes at a time. There are table, line, dump, and terminal data visualizers.

Track communications of multiple serial ports at a time

The program provides the ability to monitor one, two, or several serial interfaces within one session. This means you can test the COM port’s interactions with multiple devices and applications simultaneously. All communications data is recorded in a single log using the first-in, first-out method.

Record Modbus data to a file

In addition to monitoring RS232, RS422, and RS485 serial communications, the software allows reading Modbus data transferred between devices you’re testing. Serial Port Monitor helps you capture and analyze Modbus RTU and ASCII messages.

Emulate sending serial data

You can use our RS232 Logger to forward some data (it can be in a string, binary, octal, decimal, or hexadecimal format) to a port that is being monitored as though it were sent from a certain application. Thanks to this feature, you can see how a device connected to this port reacts to particular commands.

Analyze serial port activity

Serial Port Analyzer was developed to perform serial monitoring, displaying, and logging a system’s serial communication transmission. This RS232 monitor displays exactly the subset of serial data that interests you. Advanced filters let you eliminate unnecessary data, making it easier to concentrate on the information you need.

Compare monitoring sessions

To get more precise monitoring results, you can send the same data to the monitored port again. If you want to compare your current session with the one you saved earlier, simply select “Compare session” in the main menu and load the previously saved session to see the differences and troubleshoot COM port if needed.

I was already thinking about writing a minimal terminal software with this capability, but then I found Serial Port Monitor works without hassle. I know since X64 Windows this has become difficult - even Microsoft does not support their old Portman software anymore. So count me impressed!
We teach electronic communication courses to our students. Children love this practice and enjoy the lesson. Thanks to the Serial Port Monitor from the Electronic Team, our lessons became more fun.
SPM allowed me to rapidly (within a couple of days) develop and test that driver, which would have taken me 2-3x longer if I'd had to debug the code by hand. SPM has a slick, modern UI and so far has been completely reliable. It just does its thing and works. It's made my development more efficient and allowed me to capture and replay data to simplify testing.

Serial Port Monitor is the best software for monitoring Serial 232 and others. I used it for reading communication with a smart meter. The differential of Eltima is the capacity for sending messages in hex, oct... or any other format.
