Novosibirsk, Russia, 2011/07/13 - The update of IPHost Network Monitor, a popular network and server monitoring tool, brings a substantial increase in overall software performance. Now one copy of the software running on an average office computer can monitor some 2,000 devices.
IPHostMonitor Inc. announces the performance update of IPHost Network Monitor 3.1, a reliable distributed network monitoring tool that supports the performance and uptime monitoring of Windows and Unix/Linux servers and workstations, web applications and websites, various servers and services. Updated IPHost Network Monitor can support monitoring of 2,000 network resources (monitors) with average hardware and up to 5,000 monitored resources with more recent hardware. The performance of all parts of the monitoring tool has improved, including the console application and web interface.
With the help of Remote Network Agents IPHost Network Monitor can check the resources in multiple networks from one point. Remote Network Agents are an indispensable part of a monitoring solution for companies with several networks to monitor and for managed service providers (MSP) that need to monitor their customers' networks and servers. IPHost Network Monitor provides an out of the box solution for MSPs to monitor dozens of customer networks from a single central site. IP services, Unix/Linux and Windows server infrastructure, firewalls, routers and LANs can be monitored from a single monitoring point.
The ability to simultaneously monitor up to 5,000 network resources in multiple networks makes IPHost Network Monitor a tool of choice for a wide range of business users starting from the SMB market to enterprises with multiple branches and MSPs (Managed Service Providers).
IPHost Network Monitor helps network administrators ensure the trouble-free operation and smooth performance of local and wide area network resources by performing end-to-end monitoring of network servers and equipment, web servers, remote applications, and databases. The ability to record and simulate real user activity (Web Transaction Monitor) allows ensuring a smooth operation of complex websites, social networks, applications, web storefronts, and e-commerce sites.
The Remote Network Agent feature allows administrators to monitor resources located in multiple remote LANs simultaneously. The use of Remote Network Agents allows monitoring all types of resources supported by IPHost Network Monitor just as if they were located in the same network where IPHost Network Monitor is installed. Automatic network discovery of remote resources via Remote Network Agents is also supported.
IPHost Network Monitor performs a variety of checks from basic connectivity (ping, TCP, and UDP checks) to industry standard SNMP v1/v2/v3 and WMI operations, and can check the performance and uptime of web pages, scripts and applications, remote databases, web and mail services among other things. IPHost Network Monitor can execute a remote script or program via SSH.
In case of performance bottlenecks or downtimes, IPHost Network Monitor alerts network administrators via one or more notification methods, and can attempt to automatically resolve the issue by executing a pre-defined script or binary on the affected server. The network monitoring tool can send an E: or a text message (SMS) to a mobile phone, or post an instant notification to ICQ, Jabber, or AOL IM messengers.
Prices start from $99 for Basic Edition with up to 50 monitors to $649 for Professional Edition with an unlimited number of monitors. The SMS via GSM modem alerts add-on is priced at $99. The Web Transaction Monitor add-on is available in 5-monitor packs priced at $199, the option with an unlimited number of Web Transaction Monitors allowed is priced at $499.
