Dartware, LLC has released an update for InterMapper, bringing it to version 4.2. InterMapper is a network monitor designed for the checking and alerting of network service levels. The update features administration enhancements and timed acknowledgements. According to Dartware:
Dartware, a trailblazer in the development of graphical and intuitive real-time network monitoring tools, has expanded the feature set of its signature software. Working from extensive customer feedback, InterMapper® now makes it even easier to monitor the health of the network at a glance.
Network managers rely on InterMapper to provide a real-time view of their network. Using SNMP and other techniques, InterMapper creates graphical network maps, providing a real-time view of traffic flows and device status.
InterMapper 4.2 extends the ability to view detailed information about devices by letting the network manager launch third-party administrative or configuration tools directly from the network mapis icons.
New in version 4.2, acknowledgements can be timed for non-emergency situations. When a device will be down for scheduled maintenance, a network manager can set a timed acknowledgement for the device. Notifications will be blocked for the expected outage period, and automatically re-enabled after that time.
You can find more information about the InterMapper update at the Dartware Web site. The update is free for registered users, while the full version is available starting at US$495.00.
