Dartware, LLC has released an update for InterMapper, bringing it to version 3.6.1. InterMapper is a network monitor designed for the checking and alerting of network service levels. The latest version features new probes and authentication notification. According to Dartware:
InterMapper(R) 3.6.1 allows a network manager to monitor the status of their Apple and Cisco wireless access points. InterMapper now displays the number of clients associated with a base station, along with the client name or MAC address and the signal strength for each client.
This benefits managers who need to know how many clients are using an access point, or why particular client computers may be seeing poor performance. Because InterMapper monitors this information continually, there is no need to invoke a specialized tool to get this information.
In addition to the wireless enhancements, Dartware has added several other features that extend InterMapperis utility. These include:
- Authenticated E-mail Notifications. InterMapper can send notifications to SMTP servers that require authentication
- Improved Log File. You can now control the interval at which data are written to chart log files, and values will only be written once per time interval
- Improved HTTPS probe for Classic. InterMapper uses OpenSSL on the Classic MacOS to avoid memory leaks and to test servers that use private SSL Certificates
- New Probes. New SNMP v2c versions of the Cisco and Basic OID probes. There are also new probes to test MeetingMaker and VNC servers
You can find more information about the InterMapper release at the Dartware Web site. InterMapper 3.6.1 is available starting at US$295.00.
